BMW unveils the all-new 5-series sedan

BMW has taken the wraps off the seventh generation of its venerable 
5-series sedan, which we’ve already driven in prototype form. Code-named G30, the newest 5-series sports new sheetmetal that appears cribbed from the 3-series, while its array of new tech features borrows heavily from the 7-series.

Size-wise, the new 5 pretty much stays the course. Its dimensions are all within an inch of the previous car’s, except for overall length, which grows by 1.2 inches. Unlike the current 7-series, the 5-series does not use carbon-fiber reinforcements in its structure, but BMW says weight-saving measures such as an aluminum trunklid, roof, and doors pared up to 137 pounds.

The headlights (adaptive LEDs) stretch to touch the twin-kidney grille, behind which are aerodynamics-enhancing automatic shutters. The side view reveals a familiar upper crease along the body side and a lower character line that kicks up behind the front wheels. At the rear, larger taillights containing LED elements wrap farther around onto the fenders. An available M Sport package dresses up the exterior. It includes a revised front fascia with larger air intakes, restyled rocker panels, and trapezoidal exhaust outlets that poke out from a lower rear fascia styled to suggest a diffuser. Inside, the package brings aluminum pedal trim, an M Sport steering wheel, and optional black leather with blue contrast stitching.
