The increasing popularity of the recently unveiled 2017 G30 BMW 5 Series makes it even more desired outside Europe, with the model getting spied in new shots while undergoing tests in China, and wearing camouflage around the body.
In case you already noticed from the spy photos, we are looking here at a stretched version of the standard 5 Series Sedan, with reference to the upcoming BMW 5 Series 5Li, which will be produced in a joint venture with Brilliance division.
It seems that all-new models released by BMW with standing ovations have to be present on the Chinese market as well, BMW customers on the local market simply adoring the long-wheelbase versions.
Speaking about a long-wheelbase, the model will be around ten centimeters longer than its European sibling, coming thus with increase space at the back. This means that the car`s roof line from the rear B-pillar were visibly extended.
Otherwise, the stretched upcoming 5-Series 5Li will come with similar looks as the model in Europe, featuring an evolutionary body styling and fully-tweaked with rather the same technology.
In the engine department, the model will come with a wide array of four- and six-cylinder engines, followed by a plug-in hybrid. Once it will arrive in China, next Spring, it will take on the same stretched versions of the Audi A6L, new Volvo S90L, Mercedes E-Class L or Jaguar XFL.
