540i xDrive has extra power to match the more aggressive styling.

BMW revealed the all-new 5 Series Touring a little over a month ago yet is already giving its posh family hauler the full-on M Performance treatment. Boasting an assortment of sporty bits both inside and out, the upgraded executive estate is celebrating its world debut this week at the Geneva Motor Show.

A more aggressive body kit encompasses front bumper add-ons made from carbon fibre along with a rear diffuser, using either carbon fibre or polyurethane for its lower section. Side sill attachments are also part of the package, as are carbon fibre door mirror caps and the black kidney grille. Rounding off the visual tweaks are the M Performance bars for the brake air channels and a collection of accent strips and the compulsory badges.

To spice things up even further, BMW has kitted the 5 Series Touring with lightweight 20-inch alloys available either in Orbit Grey or with a fancier two-tone look. These forged aluminium wheels come wrapped in mixed tyres measuring 245/35 R20 at the front and 275/30 R20 rubber at the back. An upgraded braking system is also optional.

Needless to say, all of these upgrades mirror those of the saloon pictured below:

Inside, there's an Alcantara-wrapped M Performance steering wheel equipped with paddleshifters, plus other detail tweaks.

To match the visual upgrades, BMW is offering the 540i xDrive Touring model with an optional performance power kit for the turbocharged straight-six 3.0-litre engine. It adds 34 horsepower and 37 lb-ft of torque for a total of 360 hp and 369 lb-ft. Besides packing more muscle, the engine will provide better response and pulling power, along with a more aggressive exhaust soundtrack.

Speaking of which, an optional M Performance exhaust system is available not only for the 540i xDrive, but also for the lesser 530i and even for the diesel-powered 520d and the 530d / 530d xDrive. Regardless of model, the exhaust comes with a stainless steel sports silencer and generates a more powerful tone.

And the best news of all, tuner fans? All of these goodies are going to be available from day one of the new 5 Series Touring's UK market launch in June 2017.
