CGI: 2010 BMW 5 Series Estate
The CGIs you can see here are an exercise combining the already revealed front end of the "perfect symbiosis of aesthetic design and performance," as BMW calls the 5er, and some imaginative speculation on how the rear of the estate would look like. You be the judge if the exercise was successful or not.
From the engines standpoint, it is unlikely some new units will be developed. The sedan version of the 5er is powered by a range of one eight-cylinder and three six-cylinder petrol engines, as well as by two six-cylinder diesel powerplants, which will find their way into the estate as well.
Of course, the estate will benefit from BMW's EfficientDynamics technologies, which include BMW’s automatic transmission, EPS Electric Power Steering, Brake Energy Regeneration, gearshift point indicator, active air flaps control, and on-demand operation of ancillary units including a detachable a/c compressor.
Further details on the 5 Series estate will surface closer to its yet unannounced release date, probably sometimes in March.
