The 5 Series Wagon Might be the Perfect Car

On paper it might just be. The wagon in so many ways is the perfect every day transport. More utility than a sedan with much less weight than a crossover, BMW wagons have traditionally straddled the line perfectly between everyday need and everyday want. Too bad those of us in the US can’t partake in BMW’s latest – the 5 Series Touring. What’s worse our sources are telling that the current 3 Series Touring will be the last in the US as well.

    Too bad. I’d rather drive a wagon than a truck.

    It is a shame. I would have certainly bought a G30 540i wagon or 540d wagon.I did my part and bought a 328d wagon in 2015. I’ll most likely buy a 330i wagon before it’s gone for good 🙁

    At times I regret not buying my 328d in wagon form. I’ve always been a fan of wagons. My next one will be a wagon. If BMW doesn’t make one, then it’ll be some other brand. Maybe a clubman, which is enough wagon like.

    It might well be the perfect car especially if an M5 version is sanctioned.

    BMW will turn 32 years of rear-wheel-drive performance car tradition on it’s head this year with the introduction of its first four-wheel-drive M5. The German super saloon (sedan) is set to run a reworked version of the outgoing fifth generation model’s twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, producing upwards of 592hp, along with a standard 8-speed automatic gearbox.

    The four-wheel-drive model is described by senior BMW officials as not only the most powerful and fastest accelerating, but also the most dynamically capable and technically advanced M5 yet.
