The quality and features of the new 7 Series could be inherited by the G30.

A new speculative rendering of the next generation BMW 5 Series (codenamed BMW G30) has been released by OmniAuto.it, which suggests that the next 5er could look just like a scaled down 2016 BMW 7 Series.

The 2017 BMW 5 Series will be based on the 7 Series’ CLAR platform and shed about 100 kg.

The 2017 5 Series could expand but not in weight. The new 5er would have considerably larger cabin and boot volume, but as it will be generated on the 7-Series’ CLAR platform, a significant weight loss is expected, to the tune of 100 kg.

The equipment list is also foreseen to be borrowed from the flagship sedan, as spy shots of the 2017 5 Series test mules have already suggested that items like the digital instrument console, and larger iDrive controller, are taken from existing 7er’s parts bin. With them, features like self-parking system and gesture control interface, are also likely to be inherited from the 7 Series. Additionally, the new 5-Series will feature full LED headlamps.

The powertrain list for next generation 5-Series could have direct-injected, turbocharged – four-, six- and eight-cylinder engine choices like what’s in the current roster. In addition, a plug-in hybrid variant has been spotted, which is believed to have common components with the powertrain of the existing BMW 530Le sold exclusively in China.

Features like the larger iDrive controller, self-parking system and gesture control interface could cascade from the 7 Series in to the G30.
