Innovative and easy to operate – Comfort Access, including contactless opening of the tailgate, allows you to open the doors of your car and start the engine without having to use the car key. The key, which may be in your trouser pocket or briefcase, is automatically recognised as soon as you approach your car. Once the door has been automatically unlocked, you can get in and start the engine by pressing the Start/Stop button. This optional equipment includes contactless opening and closing of the tailgate. A short wave of the foot just below the middle of rear bumper triggers an impulse that activates the remote unlocking and opening of the luggage compartment. Sensors installed at different heights on the rear bumper are used to detect the person trying to open the luggage compartment. Access authorisation is only granted if the system detects that you have the key with you. Once this has been established, the luggage compartment unlocks automatically and the tailgate swings open without even being touched. Functional reliability is guaranteed thanks to key authentication. Objects lying under the vehicle – or even animals wandering about under the bumper – cannot interfere with the system.
Stylish, elegant and dynamic, the BMW 5 Series Touring is just as impressive when it comes to practical matters. The interior and luggage compartment are designed to be as functional as possible and flexibly meet all challenges – regardless of what you need to transport. The screen in the two-part tailgate opens automatically at the press of the button on the vehicle key and raises the luggage compartment cover – ideal for stowing small purchases. And if large amounts of shopping have to be accommodated, pressing the button again opens the entire tailgate to create a virtually level loading surface. To transport bulky luggage items, the divisible rear seat rests fold down in a 40 : 20 : 40 ratio – and can even be conveniently removed from the luggage compartment using the remote locking control to give a 60 : 40 ratio. The optional backrest angle adjustment allows the rear seats to be positioned in seven different settings with an angle of up to eleven degrees. This gradually increases the cargo volume from 560 to 1,670 litres.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL INSTRUMENT DISPLAY.
The multifunctional instrument display in Black Panel Technology and with 10.2" screen offers an impressive visual presentation of the driving experience.

Rear-seat entertainment Professional comprises two separate 9.2" colour screens (tilt-adjustable) and DVD drive; navigation and internet access are available during travel (mobile phone contract required); operation via remote control, connections for MP3 player, games consoles and headphones (also wireless).
