Next-gen BMW 5 Series range spied with less camouflage

Next-gen BMW 5 Series range spied with less camouflage

The upcoming generation of the BMW 5 Series has been caught on camera yet again. This time though the mid-size sedan has been spied with relatively less camouflage than before. Codenamed G30, the vehicle may look a lot like the current F10 gen model from a distance but look closer and you will notice the new headlight design which flows into the kidney grille and a more muscular bumper design.

The taillights will also be redesigned and made to look sleeker and longer than the current car. The entire 5 Series range, in fact, will be built using BMW’s next-gen platform called “35up”. This new architecture will bring lightweight materials and construction to BMW’s mass production models.

Inside, there will be a redesigned dashboard with the free-standing LCD display and tons of premium features currently found in higher-end BMWs. The car will also get the new iDrive system with touchscreen and gesture-based functions.

In terms of engines, BMW will group 500-cc cylinders together to create three, four and six cylinder engines with 60 per cent common parts. A 2-litre, four-cylinder will power the 520d and the 231bhp 525d, while the more potent 272bhp version will be used in the 528i. There will also be a 286bhp diesel engine in the 530d, a 333bhp unit in the 535d and the M550d with 400bhp.

The new 5 Series range will be officially out early next year. The car will compete with other mid-size luxury sedans like the Mercedes E-Class, Audi A6 and the recently launched all-new Jaguar XF.
