The appearance of the BMW i5 Touring for the year 2025

The sixth generation 5 Series Touring has arrived and with it comes the first electric version of the i5.


BMW has expanded its 5 Series lineup with the introduction of the new i5 Touring model. Thus, the company is following in the footsteps of the redesigned i5 sedan, as it aims to be a convincing alternative to crossover cars.


BMW has unveiled its i5 Touring for the year 2025, a car that comes with a large box and a power of up to 593 horsepower, but with an electric motor.

In this report, we monitor for you the most prominent specifications of the two cars and all other details, according to what was announced by the Bavarian company.


BMW i5 Touring 2025 design


The new car features sharp lines and sculpted surfaces replaced by smooth curves. We also see a clear grille, which will be available with optional BMW Iconic Glow lighting.


At the rear, there's a solid shoulder line and a gently sloping roof. They are joined by a fairly simple rear end with an angular window and slender taillights.


The car has 18- and 19-inch wheels as standard, with 21-inch wheels available as an option. Customers can choose  M Sport, M Sport Pro, and M Carbon Exterior trims.


In terms of dimensions, the model is 3.8 inches (97 mm) longer, 1.3 inches (32 mm) wider, and 0.7 inches (17 mm) higher than its predecessor. The wheelbase also increased by 0.8 inches (20 mm).


The i5 Touring's sophisticated and spacious interior


  • Moving inside, the BMW i5 Touring's interior looks familiar, with a curved display that includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch infotainment system.



  • This is the information that BMW has provided so far about its i5 Touring, and we will learn more details as the launch date approaches.


  • But BMW says that the new upcoming 2025 i5 Touring comes with sports seats and a new flat-bottomed steering wheel. The model is also more "responsible" because it includes a "completely vegan interior" as standard.


The i5 Touring's cargo box


While that's all well and good, the real target of the 5 -5-Series Touring is cargo space. The trunk holds 20.1 cubic feet (570 L) of luggage, which can be increased to 60 cubic feet (1,700 L) by folding the rear seats down.


BMW also stated that there is storage space under the load floor, as well as an automatic rear panel to facilitate loading and unloading.


Options will include a panoramic glass roof and Merino leather from the BMW Individual program. Customers will also be able to opt for an 18-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system and a BMW Interaction Bar.


i5 Touring: electric motor and mild hybrid


  • The redesigned BMW i5 Touring features an i5 electric motor, with an 81.2 kWh battery.


  • The i5 eDrive40 Touring is powered by a rear-mounted engine that produces 335 hp (250 kW / 340 hp) and 317 lb-ft (430 Nm) of torque.


  • This allows the model to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.1 seconds and travel up to 348 miles (560 km) using the WLTP test procedure.


i5 Touring performance


  • Buyers looking for more performance can opt for the i5 M60 xDrive Touring, which has dual-motor all-wheel drive and produces 593 hp (442 kW/601 hp) and 605 lb-ft (820 Nm) of torque.


  • This allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 143 mph (230 km/h). However, the range is limited to 314 miles (506 km).


  • Customers will be able to recharge using AC capacities ranging from 11 kW to 22 kW. The vehicle also has a DC fast charging capacity of up to 205 kilowatts.


2025 i5 Touring hybrid powertrain


  • For the internal combustion car crowd, there are a few mild hybrid options, including a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel with 194 PS (145 kW/197 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). It is mated to an eight-speed gearbox and can be paired with an optional all-wheel drive system.


  • This summer, additional options will be available, including a six-cylinder diesel engine and “two model variants with the latest generation of plug-in hybrid engines .”


Professional driving assistant in the new i5 Touring


Finally, the 5 Series lineup offers the Driving Assistant Professional system that includes “Steering Assist, Lane Control, and Distance Control with Stop & Go function.”


Highway Assistant allows customers to drive hands-free at speeds up to 85 mph (130 km/h).


You can also impress your friends with the Active Lane Change Assistant, which uses eye activation.


These are the most prominent specifications that BMW revealed about its new i5 Touring car.
