The upcoming BMW G30 5 Series gets rendered one more time by Auto Zeitung. Using styling cues from the recently launched 7 Series, the middle class athlete stays true to the current BMW design language with an elongated bodystyle, sharp-rounded corners and the upright kidney grille which connects with the headlights. Just like the 7 Series, we expect the new G30 5 Series to offer optional laser headlights with selective beam.

The rendering also takes the side view from the 7er, with the air breather and the L-shaped crease running across the width of the car. Even though not illustrated here, the rear end is likely to feature a sleeker look, more upright and with the same L-shaped LED taillights.

The new G30 family is built upon the CLAR platform which will be found in the next 3, 5, 6 and 7 Series models.

The G30/G31 family will get most of the interior goodies that G11/G12 7 Series introduces: remote parking with the smart touchscreen keyfob, gesture control, Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround sound system, ambient light and fragrance air system.

Inside the cabin we will see the new iDrive system with touchscreen and gesture-based functions, the over-the-air updates for the car and other gimmicks that will bring ConnectedDrive philosophy to a new level.

Autonomous functions will be the center of future BMWs, and by that we don’t necessarily mean self-driving car, but rather individual, interconnected features that automate some of the driver-performed functions today. The new 5 Series will not only park itself, but change lanes and overtake on the driver’s behalf. It’ll use radar-based cruise control to stay in its lane, detect a car ahead, and signal before pulling out and passing the car in front.

BMW will unveil the new 5 Series in the second half of 2016.

    What’s the point of making renderings like this?? It’s just a 7 Series with the air curtains and front bumper of the 4 Series!! THIS IS NOT HOW THE NEXT 5 SERIES WILL LOOK LIKE. It’s just a waste of time and resources.

    • Kaisuke971 says:

      Good renderings usually come when ultra heavy camo is ditched

      • Senne says:

        Yeah, that’s true. Though a good rendering is sometimes possible even with camo. But if this is the only kind of rendering one can come up with, I think they should better not make one in de first place and wait until the test mules have ditched enough camo to make a GOOD rendering. :)

    That front bumper is so f*cking outdated!!! And ugly…

  3. Indrit Selimi says:

    Given that the new series 5 seems to take the same options and technologies of series 7 wondering why then one should buy the last? Moreover very anxious to know the, presumably, “very competitive” price for these options on 5 series considering the BMW general approach…
