The next generation G30 BMW 5 Series will launch in 2016.
What do we expect from the 5 Series is to continue along the design lines of the current F10/F11 generation, a soft rounded design that it is immediately appealing to mass . We do anticipate some of the current BMW design features to trickle their way into the 5 Series looks as well, starting with the headlights flowing into the kidney grille and the dynamics side panels.
The photo rendering included here gives us a preview of what the new 5 Series might look like.
Inside BMW will stay true to its classy, sporty and premium design, but with a new touch. We expected to see a redesigned dashboard with the free-standing LCD display and tons of premium features currently found in higher-end models.
The G30 BMW 5 Series is built upon the BMW’s next generation platform called “35up”, a codename for a new platform that will bring lightweight materials and to mass production cars. CFRP will play an important role here.
Powertrains will include a selection of four cylinder 2.0 liter engines and 3.0-liter inline-six gasoline and diesel engines, as well as a hybrid drivetrain based on the one seen in the X5 eDrive Concept.
