The BMW 5-series is already one of the world's smartest cars it's jam-packed full of the latest semi-autonomous and safety functionality. But this one is even smarter as it's a little more practical. It is of course the 2018 BMW 520d Touring and it's on its way to Australia soon.
2018 BMW 520d Touring Interior
The BMW 5-series Touring will be offered locally in a slimmed-down range, with just two four-cylinder variants the 2018 BMW 520d Touring and 530i. Each of which command a $6,000 price premium over the equip a sedan models. They do however mirror the specifications. With a host of standard features that not only make them, one of the smartest and safest cars on the planet, but one that is also genuinely luxurious and at the cutting edge of connectivity.
Obviously the unique thing about the 2018 BMW 520d Touring is it's a station wagon. So it's got plenty of space in the back, it's certainly big enough for even the largest of travel bags. And the rear seats can even be folded down electrically at the touch of a button. All in all it's a great practical luxury car.
There’s a bit more space for rear-seat passengers too, thanks to its Wagon body. Offering more headroom in the sedan and those in the back are treated their own air conditioning controls with vents. In the back of the center console, as well as the B-pillars.
With the rising popularity of SUVs which promise a bit more adventure even if they never leave the suburbs. Conventional Station Wagons are seen as being a bit boring. A bit old world even ancient. Well it doesn't feel ancient from the driver's seat at all, in fact it is a genuine luxury car. There’s beautiful materials all around there's great comfort from front seats, and there's plenty of modern conveniences that keep everyone happy. There is a huge high-res color touchscreen on top of the dash, that is jam-packed full of information. There’s internet connectivity, Bluetooth connectivity and there's Wi-Fi hotspots. It even has wireless Apple CarPlay the first of its kind.
It's not only a smart car in terms of its technology. It’s a really smart car to drive. This is a fairly basic specification. But I'd have to say it's the entire family car you'll ever need.
