2018 BMW 5 Series makes unofficial web debut ahead of reveal

The latest generation of the BMW 5 Series has been leaked onto the interweb ahead of its official reveal on October 13. It sports an evolutionary design and is the seventh generation for the Bavarian automaker’s long running mid-size luxury sedan.

Internally codenamed G30, we can see that this new car gets a wider kidney grille and wedge like headlights (with the silver eyebrows from E60 era) but retains the overall design that has defined the model range for the last five to six years. The side profile is dominated by softly flared wheel arches and sharp creases that run along the door handles and by the base of the doors. At the rear, we can see the signature BMW wrap around LED tail lamps, sporty bumpers and sharp spoiler.

There is a photo of the cabin (from the driver’s seat) and it shows things like a fully digital instrument cluster, floating free-stand infotainment display, colour display for the climate control system. The overall design includes leather inserts, chrome plastics and wood inserts for the lid of the cup holder and the doors.  

If the car is going into production in November then the car is expected to go on sale either in the end of December or in early January 2017. This means we will get the car around March or April through the local assembly route and in both petrol and diesel guises. Also expect a limited unit launch edition which will be heavy on features and only be offered as a CBU.
