The first 2017 BMW G30 5 Series with an M Sport Package was spotted in South Carolina by the usual spy photographer Palbay. The images reveal the typical M Sport wheels with the four-piston brake calipers and a black tape covering the small “M” logos found on all the BMW M Sport models.
Although the G30 5 Series has grown slighlty in size, the midsize sedan will actually be lighter than the current F10 5 Series. By using carbon in the body structure and the new CLAR platform, the curb weight should fall by up to 100 kilograms.
The spy photos also reveal the full LED headlights which will be standard on the new 5er. Optional laser headlights will also be part of the ordering catalog.
BMW’s G30 5 Series is an evolution of the current generation 5 Series, but with modern accents which will clearly distinguish the two models. Even though were eager to call it a smaller 7 Series, the new midsize sedan will have its own identity and character.
BMW plans to unveil the new 5 Series in the upcoming weeks, followed by a market launch in early 2017.
