BMW M5 Touring In America: Will They, Or Won't They?

BMW has spent some time putting out fires recently after an outlet claimed that BMW’s head of design Domagoj Dukec declared the upcoming M5 Touring would be coming to North America. Following the claim, various news outlets cited the story, but according to The Drive, BMW hasn’t actually said anything of consequence regarding the M5 Touring’s arrival in North America. In an email, the company said “BMW M has confirmed the production of the BMW M5 Touring. Details related to when and in which markets this car will be offered will follow at a later date.”

It’s a non-answer, and if anything, indicates that BMW hasn’t flat-out decided one way or another. As TD further points out, BMW Canada spokesperson Jean-François Taylor said later that “no decision has been made” about the model being sold in Canada, either. At least from a competitive standpoint, the argument for an M5 Touring here in North America remains strong. Audi, for one, seems set to continue to produce the RS6 Avant, and both the E63 and the Panamera’s performance wagon variants are still in production as well.

    Wagons are so versatile. This would be a wonderful addition to the RS6, Porsche and E63 - all of which are amazing. They are a perfect option for those needing a bit more room and versatility without moving up to a van. Plus of course, the performance and 'feel' are definitely a plus.
