Product Overview

BMW 5 Series Touring G31 LCI is an executive station wagon in production from 2020. It is available with a range of inline-4 and inline-6 engines that displaced 2.0 to 3.0 liters.
Compared to the pre-facelift model, the facelifted G31 has roughly the same drivetrain setup. Only minor changes were introduced on the cosmetic front. At the same more, more "woke" variants became available.
BMW has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.26 coefficient of drag to show for it. The official fuel economy rating is exceptionally rosy, though it may cast more doubts on the trustworthiness of the regulators and perhaps the owner's own sanity than it relates to reality.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the BMW 5 Series Touring G31 LCI comes with double-wishbone at the front and multi-link at the rear. Combined with RWD, this setup provides one of the best handling characteristics and tuning capabilities.

Measuring 4,963mm nose to tail, few estates are longer than he BMW 5 Series Touring. Car is very similarly proportioned to all its main rivals, and is only slightly longer than a Mercedes E-Class Estate. There's loads of room inside for adults both in the front and the rear, too.
