2017 BMW 5 Series Touring G31 Specifications
Features, Exterior, and Interior Reviews
It is estimated that the 2017 BMW 5 Series Touring G31 particular model will be offered in four different trims based on the engine powering the car. There will be two trims of petrol engine, and there will be two trims of the diesel engine. Being a touring, this should offer more space in the cabin than its sedan sibling. This touring model is built based on BMW’s 35up platform.
This platform provides significant weight reduction, which is claimed to reach 100 kg. It means the car will handle sharper performance bends and better speed in straight lines. Looking at the new prototype appearance, this weight reduction seems to be actual. It will be a five-door model with the hatchback-styled opening on the back. We can’t seem to peep on the inside, but we should be sure to get premium trimming in the cabin.

As mentioned before, there will be petrol and diesel engines. The 530i trim will be empowered by four-cylinder 2.0 liter of petrol engine that generates around 252 hp of power output. There is no information if the same engine will power the 2017 BMW 504i trim.
