Next-gen BMW 5 Series range spied

Next-gen BMW 5 Series range spied

The upcoming BMW 5 Series range, codenamed G30, will continue to sport the same design lines as the current F10 gen model, as seen in these spy shots. That said, the new 5 Series will also feature headlights which flow 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 F10 generation car. The entire range will be built using BMW’s next-gen platform called “35up” that will bring lightweight materials and construction to mass production cars. 

Inside, we expect to see 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 is expected to go on sale sometime later this year or early next year. Once launched, BMW will be pitting it against the usual set of rivals including the Mercedes E-Class, Audi A6 and the Jaguar XF.
