The upcoming 2017 BMW 5-Series was recently the subject of some new spy shots carried out on the tracks at Nurburgring, while the model was performing some heavy testing, before heading to the production line next summer. The test mule with the new-gen 5-Series is all wrapped in camouflage, meaning that it will come with a lot of changes in its final version.
First off, the design of the 2017 BMW 5-Series is set to be even more evolutionary than the present F10 model, the body style also looking more aggressive and sportier, thanks to the revised front fascia, flowing headlights into the kidney grille and a few more to go along with these.
Second, the cabin of the future 2017 BMW 5-Series is also said to abound with a lot of technology, sporty features and high-end materials. We might be referring here at an updated dashboard with the free-standing LCD display with multi-function buttons, the iDrive system with touchscreen and a lot more.
Concerning the powertrains under the hood, the 2017 BMW 5-Series is expected to come with a three-cylinder diesel engines, in the 518d, which would develop a decreased 150 horsepower over the present model. Next, the four-cylinder will also set in, in the 2.0-liter 520d and 525d, both receiving 231 horsepower, while the petrol 528i will output 272 horsepower.
More than that, BMW will also fit the six-cylinder engines under the hood of the upcoming 5-Series, found on the 530i with 330 horsepower, the 540i, developing 375 horsepower, as well as on the 530d, with 286 horsepower.
As expected, BMW will also launch a 5-Series hybrid lineup, fitted with four- or six-cylinder engines.
