Combined fuel consumption measured according to ECE norm: 9.5 l/100 km and 221 g/km CO2.


The BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo Touring combines elegant refinement with great versatility and everyday functionality. A generous load volume of 1670 liters and distinct family mindedness do not mean the Touring's performance genes are any less pronounced. Perfectly tuned suspension, electronically controlled dampers and neutral, safe handling ensure stability and well-being at all times. Regardless of whether its family, business or pleasure, the BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo Touring is always an ideal companion that offers unparalleled performance reserves. Combined fuel consumption measured according to ECE norm: 9.6 l/100 km and 224 g/km CO2.

The differential is hand-made to the highest standards by specialists from Drexler Motor Sport  using high-tech materials and CNC milled components.
