2016 BMW 5 Series might sport an M version with 600+bhp motor

2016 BMW 5 Series might sport an M version with 600+bhp motor

There have been talks about the upcoming 2016 BMW 5 Series, but the details were scarce but not anymore. A source has mentioned a few details about the new 5 Series and it is certainly interesting. 

According to the source, the new 5 Series might feature semi-autonomous driving technology and a drastically improved interior as BMW wants to set "new standards in terms of surface quality and material appearance." There are chances that a revised iDrive controller and improved voice commands might be offered.

The powertrains to be used are anybody’s guess, but the source adds that it may get a choice of four engines. A plug-in hybrid variant with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and an electric motor and a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine with 348bhp and 500Nm of torque. There could be a 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel with 341bhp and 660Nm of torque and a quad-turbocharged M 550xd with 402bhp and 750Nm of torque.

The M5 has been the pinnacle of performance in the BMW range when it comes to four-door sedans with supercar-like power. While, the current M5 makes 552bhp, its successor might have an engine churning out 616bhp and an optional all-wheel drive system. 

We expect the 2016 BMW 5 Series to be launched in India within six months of its global launch. If the new M5 crosses the 600bhp mark on the dyno, it will be the first M model to have breached this mark.
