New BMW load-lugger spotted
16 April 2009

Beneath this psychedelic camouflage lies the new BMW 5-series Touring, snapped by our spy photographers this week.

The car is expected to arrive later this year, and the images show it will share much of its appearance with the 5 Series GT concept.

Swept-back headlights sit aside a large kidney grille that is similar to the one seen on the new 7-series.

Black plastic sills run the length of the car and there is a small spoiler above the rear window.

The Touring has a long wheelbase which should ensure decent load-lugging capacity.

The car will be joined by the GT, a cross between an SUV and an estate car, which is taller and longer than the standard 5-series, and will form a third line for the 5-series range.
