The 5er with a new look
BMW pulled out all the trump cards out of the box for its seventh-generation 5 Series. Alongside the improved engines, semi-autonomous driving features and gesture controls, the new car receives an entirely new design. To be honest at first glance, it doesn’t look all that different. Admittedly the 5 Series does take some of its styling cues from the current generation of 7 Series. However, that arises a fundamental question. Does the sedan benefit from a little change, or did it look better before its makeover? While the other sedans in the BMW line-up feature a thin chrome-accent across the grille, the 5 Series gets a chunky frame. Its headlights are now attached to the grille similar to the current 7 Series and the audacious air intake below the grille gives the front end a more muscular look. image 1 There are noticeable changes too on the side panels. Conveniently this is no longer a large cut-out on the left of the side doors. In its place, an inlet has been placed in a diagonal fashion closer to the front tire. More deeper character lines run across the side panels. Going to the rear end, the first thing you’ll clearly notice is the new taillights. On the previous generation, the taillight design was interrupted because of the trunk lid, but now the taillights feature a more consistent appearance. Though they are chunkier than before, they extend far from the license plate holder and continue till the side of the vehicle. The rear bumper also gets a new design with two large exhaust pipes flanking on each side. If you hope inside, you'll see that the 2017 BMW 5 Series receives a new dashboard and gear shift. The built-in unit on infotainment screen has been replaced with a new pop-up one. Standard goodies include sport seats, two-zone climate control, ambiance lighting, and a 12-speaker sound system. After an anticipated public debut at the Detroit Motor Show, the G30 5-series is set to hit the market in February 2017, so, will have to wait a few more months to get your hands on one, until the pictures will have to suffice. image 2
