Various prototypes and pre-production vehicles of the new 5 Series continue to be seen on the road carrying out last-day tests under realistic conditions. Our sister magazine Bimmertoday spotted yet another G30 5er, only this time on the Autobahn. The photographs show the upper-class sedan in the 530d guise in a completely everyday environment and give an impression of how the new 5 Series will fit into the road picture from February 2017 onwards.

The factory test car wears the Luxury Line package, just like the other 5 Series model we spotted last week. The Luxury Line offers chrome exterior accents, such as the Air Breather vent, specific 18″ or 19″ wheels, interior leather with contrast stitching and a Sensatec-covered instrument panel.

Compared to its predecessor, the BMW G30 530d xDrive has become lighter by 95 kilograms, thus demonstrating the strength of the lightweight range of the new 5 Series. Its 265 horsepower from a straight-six-cylinder diesel offers a maximum torque of 620 Newton meters between 2,000 and 2,500 rpm accelerating the upper-class sedan to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds.

The further 55 kilogram lighter 530d sedan with rear wheel drive requires three tenths of a second for the same exercise, but benefits from its overall low-friction drivetrain when consuming. The EU consumption of the G30 530d is between 4.5 and 4.9 liters per 100 kilometers, depending on the tire size. The all-wheel drive variant 530d xDrive comes at 5.0 to 5.4 liters. Both models are electronically braked at 250 km/h.

The prices for the 2017 530d start in Germany at 54,300 euros, the xDrive model is available from 56,900 euros.

    Imposing/dull

    Sadly, this design isn’t growing with the passage of time. (at least on me)

    The excessively heavy and pointlessly overwrought rear of the car reminds me of cheek portion of pug dogs. Dogs look cute, though.

    And yes..not every imposing looking thing is a design masterpiece. Example – big bricks

    I did see the 540i in real at a presentation in spacegrau with elfenbein leather. Ok, the front is different, hard to tell it is a 5 or 3 series really. As from behind the front wheels to the back of the car, it really is a small facelift, lines, doorhendles…. same… the back…. apart from new lights…. looks very familiar. How the rear view camera has been set up !!!! That is emberrassing ! Looks like a glued-on aliexpress toy. They say that the big differences are under skin, new chassis, leightweight etc…. well, I am curious to drive one. Now I have the 535 in Spacegrau and I do not intend to pay 80k for a facelift. I am looking to 6 and 7 series now…. audi rs6 and E coupe instead. Dissapointed.
