BMW 5-Series Touring (E61) Station Wagon (2007) Review:After the introduction of the 5-door station wagon, the BMW 5-Series (E61) with a new three-liter turbodiesel in dynamics lost the three-liter gasoline version in just a split second.
And the diesel "five" overcame the twists and turns of the winding path with unexpected agility. It's not just about excellent traction dynamics. The new “five” had an ideal “driver” weight distribution along the axes - fifty to fifty. For such a distribution of mass, the front of the car had to be significantly lightened. And in order to achieve this, Munich took an unprecedented step - for the first time in the world, a completely aluminum front had riveted to a steel body! With an aluminum motor shield, pillar supports, mudguards, front spars half ... Suspension brackets were also almost completely aluminum. Front suspension - McPherson struts.
The 5-door touring Station wagon's steering can be ordered in several versions. The basic equipment was just a “rack” with variable pitch and with a hydraulic booster (the Jaguar S-Type was equipped with a similar ZF mechanism), which allowed rotating the steering wheel at smaller angles when parking, but in the “near-zero” zone it maintained normal steering wheel sensitivity.
The next step is the Servotronic power steering, which, depending on the speed, changes the force on the steering wheel. And the AFS system (planetary gear with an electric motor) will also add here active gear ratio control (in addition to the variable pitch of the rack teeth).
The same applied to the suspension - “in the base” BMW equipped with conventional passive stabilizers, but for an extra fee you can order Dynamic Drive active stabilizers (a powerful and high-speed hydraulic motor was included in the section of the stabilizer,
Later, the E60 / 61 version of the 5-series was updated with a 333-horsepower V8 engine.
But somewhere around the training grounds, a new generation BMW M5 was already racing - with an intriguing 500-horsepower engine, built according to the “formal” V10! The BMW 5-E60 (4-door sedan) was the first “sedan” in the world to feature a V10 gasoline engine.
