Yesterday we saw some leaked photos of the new BMW 5 Series and now BMW have taken the wraps off their nee executive sedan.
The BWM 5 Series comes with more space than the previous model plus improved efficiency and the car comes with all of the latest technology from BMW.
The new BMW 5 Series Sedan therefore has all the tools it needs to continue the remarkable success recorded by its predecessors; more than 7.6 million BMW 5 Series cars were sold across its first six generations. “The seventh generation of the BMW 5 Series points the way into the future, as we have defined it with our NUMBER ONE > NEXT strategy. We see technological leadership, emotionally rich products and digitalisation as essential factors in achieving success. With the expansion of our model portfolio in the large-vehicle classes, we are satisfying the wishes of many customers. I’m in no doubt that the new BMW 5 Series will set new benchmarks technologically, but also have huge emotional appeal. It remains the epitome of the business sedan,” says Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management at BMW AG.
The new BMW 5 Series will launch in February of next year and there will be four engine options available at launch both petrol and diesel.
At launch their will be a 530i and 50i xDrive, a 540i and 540i xDrive, a 520d and 520d xDrive and a 530d and 530d xDrive.
