The current BMW 5 Series saloon is the seventh-generation model, and given that the last four have all included an estate version, it was only ever going to be a matter of time before this latest BMW 5 Series Touring was revealed.
It's based on our reigning Car of The Year, so it's starting from a strong position. But estate buyers have unique priorities, so success is by no means guaranteed.
The Touring features many of the same engines as the saloon at the front, the same technology and luxurious interior in the middle and, of course, has a larger, more practical boot at the rear. In fact, the boot is even bigger than the previous Touring's, while self-levelling rear air suspension is now standard so you can carry heavier loads.
But there's plenty of choice for premium estate buyers; the Audi A6 Avant, Mercedes E-Class Estate and Volvo V90 all combine spacious, sumptuous interiors with large luggage capacities. Read our full review to see if the Touring overcomes these rivals too.
