BMW 530i Touring M Sport: The Ultimate Wagon

We take a closer look at the new BMW 530I Touring M Sport—A Sporty, Refined, and Luxurious station wagon

Amid the rise of eletronic vehicles, Indonesian car fans and the country’s automotive industry are also seeing the comeback of a more classic trend: the station wagon. What’s intriguing about the wagon revival is how many high-end automakers are re-entering this market and how station wagons have been featured at automotive shows around the world by a number of upscale automakers—and BMW Group Indonesia is one of them. The storied German brand recently unveiled the new BMW 530i Touring M Sport which combines innovative design, technology and functionality.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS
At first glance, one of the most distinctive features of the revised front end of the BMW 530i Touring M Sport includes the bold BMW kidney grille with modified contouring and the headlights sporting a new light graphic. In particular, the prominent kidney grille immediately catches the eye with a new, octagonal form. This modern interpretation of the BMW icon adds extra width and height, drops down further into the front apron and is framed by a single-piece surround.
Furthermore, the generously sized, tightly sculpted surfaces in body color and vertical air intakes on either side of the front apron also underscore the exterior’s elegant interplay of lines and give the car an even more expressive appearance. It’s also great to see the M Sport braking system able to bring another stylistic touch, as the brake calipers come with the M logo painted in red.
Moving inside, the interior is designed with a blend of contemporary elegance, which provides the ideal environment for driving pleasure and comfortable progress over long distances. The high-quality materials and precise workmanship of the Aluminium Rhombicle Smoke Grey variant and accent trim strip in the Pearl-effect Chrome option with synthetic Sensatec perforated trim bring a modern, premium ambiance to the cabin.
Another special factor is the generous feeling of space in all five seats, whether you drive or sit at the back as a passenger and the superbly engineered acoustics. The BMW 5 Series Touring also allows owners of this model to increase boot space from 560 to 1,700 liters and fold down the 40:20:40 rear-seat backrests.

ON THE ROAD
Naturally, the BMW 530i Touring M Sport offers superior performance on the road. The new station wagon is endowed with High Precision Injection and BMW Efficient Dynamics technology. The new BMW goes from zero to 100km/h in less than seven seconds. This level of performance is produced by the BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder double VANOS engine which has a maximum output of 252hp and 350Nm.
Further refinements have also been made to systems that make parking and maneuvering easier. The BMW Operating System 7 also paves the way for a multitude of potential new applications and connectivity options.
Speaking of which, control of the vehicle, infotainment features, communication and navigation functions is based on the proven approach of allowing customers to choose between the Control Display on a 12.3-inch touchscreen, the iDrive Touch Controller, the controls on the steering wheel, voice control using the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant or optional BMW gesture control, depending on the situation. Meanwhile, in addition to Apple CarPlay, the operating system also hosts Android Auto, making it easier to access a large number of digital services from the car in the same way as on a smartphone.

 

FINAL THOUGHTS
The BMW 5 Series Touring, which has been around since 1991 and is now in its fifth generation, presents a balanced blend of dynamic sharpness and comfort with a larger interior for a variety of usage scenarios.
Aesthetically, the new BMW 530i Touring M Sport has a clean, modern, sporty and refined style that focuses on width and presence in the M Sport Package. Numerous Driving Assistant aids help make driving and maneuvering
easier, safer and effortless, ensuring that every journey in a BMW is enjoyable. The new car also strikes the perfect balance between sporty driver orientation and modern elegance with a natural focus on comfort for all passengers such as sports seats at the front and an adjustable backrest on the second row.
All in all, with the combination of sporting elegance, intelligent driving, comfort and practicality, the new BMW 530i Touring M Sport is unquestionably a fantastic choice for drivers of all mindsets.
