Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Nearly similar to that of the new BMW 7 Series.

The next gen BMW 5 Series has been spotted testing in China, featuring lesser camouflage than before. A closer look reveals the headlight and grille designs of the mid-size luxury sedan. The 2017 BMW 5 Series is expected to debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October.

The 2017 BMW 5 Series will draw design cues from the 2016 BMW 7 Series, as evidenced by the headlamp design. The trademark BMW kidney grille could feature active air ducts for efficient cooling, and the lower bumper adopts a simple design with a long intake across, while the M Sport variant will feature a sportier bumper.

One of the biggest upgrades in store for the next gen 5 Series is the new CLAR RWD platform with Carbon Core. Introduced in the new 7 Series, the platform integrates mass produced carbon fiber and various lightweight metals into its construction, thus bringing down the kerb weight by 100 kg, reportedly.
