2017 BMW 5-Series Caught on Shots

BMW is currently testing the new-gen 5-Series in Germany, the model being expected to debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, this October. The 2017 BMW 5-Series will be the direct competitor of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

As we can depict from the spy shots, the new 5-Series will come with a more evolutionary design, with cues borrowed from the 2016 BMW 7-Series. Even if the test mule is fully camouflaged, we might still depict the key elements, like the new headlights and front bumper, wraparound taillights, standout dual exhaust system and a few more.

The 2017 BMW 5-Series will stand on the same lightweight platform also found on the 7-Series model, shedding off around 220 pounds, which will make it more agile than its predecessor.

Performance wise, the new 5-Series is rumored to come with a wide range of engines, which will bring it closer to the 7-Series. We might see a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder diesel engine, with 265 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque, or a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder petrol burner, developing 326 horsepower. A higher 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 with 450 horsepower is also expected.

Apart the conventional engine lineup, the new 5-Series will also come with two plug-in hybrid versions, like the entry-level turbocharged four-cylinder engine with electric motor, producing around 280 horsepower, as well as a more powerful variant that would produce 320 horsepower. More details will be revealead later on!
