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 customersicon1. 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 hood lines will continue to be aggressive and dynamic looking, giving the car a road-focused look. The front and rear bumper will certainly be bumped a notch in sportiness as well.

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 construction 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.

An entry-level G30 5 Series might feature the small, yet potent three cylinder 1.5 liter engines.
