The 2017 BMW 5-Series is popping up in our news again while undergoing fresh tests all wrapped in camouflage. The new 5-Series is preparing for an official debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
As we already know, the 5-Series will come with a lot of design lines from the all-new 7-Series, adding an upright kidney grille, sharp-rounded corners, new headlights, or optional lased headlights with selective beam.
The rear end also reveals a sleeker silhouette with the familiar L-shaped LED taillights. The model will also come with a lower sloping roofline.
Moving inside, the 2017 BMW 5-Series will borrow the same technology from the 7-Series, like gesture control, remote parking with smart touchscreen keyfob, fragrance air system, ambient light or the high-performance Bowers and Wilkins Diamond surround sound system.
Under the hood, the 7-Series will also influence the all-new 5-Series. Thus, we might find 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, with 326 horsepower. A higher 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 with 450 horsepower is also in the works.
As expected, the 2017 BMW 5-Series is also likely to 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!
