Following the exciting debut of the 2016 BMW 7-Series last year, the 2017 G30 BMW 5-Series model unveiled online is perhaps the most anticipated and long-expected model from BMW, that high-end ride that everybody has been talking about.
The model is set to officially debut next year, but until then we get to see it in full in media gallery, hot details and impressive videos. So stay tuned and read on our latest news on the 2017 G30 BMW 5-Series.
There are tons of appreciations to be addressed to the 2017 BMW 5-Series and perhaps words are necessary at this point. And giving its resemblance with the 7-Series in styling, interior and technological enhancements, as well as the plethora of high-end engines under the hood, the G30 BMW 5-Series will definitely be an instant success.
At the exterior, the new 5-Series comes with a bigger platform, the model gaining significant inches in size, bringing it closer to the 7-Series.
In terms of visuals, the model will be offered from the start with the M Sport Package, meaning the M Aerodynamic kit with custom front apron with wider air intakes, side skirt trims, diffuser-style rear apron, exhaust system with two rectangular tailpipes, adding the Shadowline trim, lowered suspension system as well as the 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the model is also looking exclusive with the M parts, visible on the three-spoke leather steering wheel, SensaTec upholstered dashboard, aluminum pedal covers and footrest, custom floor mats, optional Black Dakota Leather with contrast Blue stitching and so on.
In the technology department, the all-new 5-Series is indeed highly-advanced, the model coming with a plethora of gizmos that would make jealous even a 7-Series owner.
The car`s main highlight is the autonomous driving technology already previewed in former discussions, and which can communicate with other BMWs, using different voice systems, a feature that will also underpin the next year`s BMW 7-Series. Of course, don’t expect anything like “I`ll park the car for you”, but it will park your car safely and taking into account the surroundings, via the ParkNow feature.
Other important features also refer to gesture control, Intelligent voice control, touchscreen as well as the iDrive 6.0 touchpad Controller, some of them already being highlighted on the last year`s 7-Series. Let`s not forget the now already commonly used tech goodies like entertainment, navigation, telephone and other functions which can be observed on the high-end 10.25-inch screen and controlled via the aforementioned iDrive Controller or by gestures and voice controls.
As for the safety features, the new 5-Series has got plenty of it. We are looking here at the most advanced gizmos, like the Driver and Parking Assistance Systems, Adaptive Mode with Dynamic Damper control, adding the latest Head-Up Display, Remote 3D View, new Voice Control, Remote Control Parking or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
In the engine department, the 2017 G30 BMW 5-Series comes with a wide choice of engines, and that thanks to the car`s new CLAR platform, all built from lightweight materials like carbon fiber or aluminum.
We should mention the all-new 2.0-liter flat-four inline engine with 248 horsepower in the 530i version, adding the 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with 335 horsepower, in the 540i. The new 5-Series will also spawn a much more potent M5 and M550 diesel, with improved performance and additional styling features.
