BMW`s latest flagships to be seen still running full tests are the long-expected and talked BMW 5-Series Sedan and Touring, recently seen in new spy photos, and wearing less camouflage, which indicates that both are getting closer to their final production versions.
This is not the first time we get our hands on the all-new 5-Series Sedan and Touring, the test mules already being previewed in recent spy photos. Chances are that we will see the 5-Series Sedan in Detroit, next January, while the Touring will be unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
As we already know, the 5-Series and Touring are expected to ride on the company`s new CLAR platform, meaning that they would shed off around 100 kilos, which will translate in increase driving dynamics, more space inside and a wide choice of engines under the hood.
The 5-Series Sedan and Touring will be much bigger than the current versions, following BMW`s recent philosophy concerning its new body styling, bringing them much closer to the 7-Series. The interior and technology will be also borrowed from the all-new 7-Series, while the engine powertrain will refer to downsized configurations of the same 7-Series.
We are dealing here with the latest gadgetry and safety features, like Steering and Lane Control Assistant, Crossroads Warning system, adding Remote View 3D application and much more.
As for the engine choice, one of the most expected engines refer to the all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline mill, hooked to an electric motor and put in motion by a lithium-ion battery pack with range of 32 km.
