Is the BMW i5 Touring a good car?

The BMW i5 Touring is an electric estate car, which means it’s a very rare thing indeed. You get the same posh interior and silent running as the i5 saloon, but with a bit more practicality. It’s like a North Face duffle bag, because it’s big, practical and has designer appeal.

There aren’t many direct alternatives, with the Peugeot e-308 SW half the price and the Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo quite a bit more, though an Audi A6 e-tron is on the way. If practical electric cars are what you’re after, SUVs such as the Kia EV9, BMW iX and Audi Q8 e-tron are also worth a look at a similar price to the i5 Touring.

Even taking those SUVs into account, the estate body style means that the BMW i5 Touring’s 570-litre boot is big and practical. Of those listed above, only the Kia EV9 has a bigger boot, though it is a truly massive car. The Taycan Sport Turismo is miles behind.

Boxy rear aside, there’s no difference in styling between the i5 Touring and its saloon equivalent, meaning you get the same slightly gawky front end. In standard Sport trim it all looks rather plain, but stepping up to M Sport brings some much-needed sporty black styling touches that improve things.

More electric estate cars is no bad thing, but the BMW i5 Touring is more expensive than some very desirable electric SUVs…

There can be no complaints inside, because you get the high-quality materials and build quality you expect from BMW, while the huge, sweeping twin-screen setup atop the dashboard looks suitably high-tech.

You have a choice of two battery and motor combinations, though unless you want the face-melting acceleration of the M60 model the eDrive40 will be a better option for most. Its 340hp output is more than adequate and official figures put its range at up to 344 miles, compared with 310 miles in the M60. That compares pretty well with alternatives – the Audi Q8 e-tron can go up to 333 miles on a charge, the BMW iX can manage 377 miles and the Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo can manage up to 268 miles.

We’ll get behind the wheel soon to see if the estate is as good to drive as the i5 saloon. In the meantime, there’s no denying this is an expensive car, so see how much you could save with Carwow’s BMW i5 Touring deals. If SUVs are more your thing there are also BMW iX deals to peruse. You could also check out used BMWs from our network of trusted dealers, and when it’s time to sell your current car, Carwow can help with that, too.
