Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Should be launched in India next year.

The sixth generation BMW 5 Series is nearing the end of its lifecycle and BMW is working on the seventh generation BMW 5 Series now. A speculative rendering previews the 2017 BMW 5 Series’s profile. The all-new 5er is rumored to already have been shown privately to select few, and will reportedly have its world debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in September.

The CLAR platform-based next-gen BMW 5 Series will be available in three body styles: saloon, estate and hatchback.

The BMW 5 Series, as shown in a set of renderings last month, will undergo an evolutionary redesign. The exterior and interior both are expected to be inline with the sixth generation BMW 7 Series introduced last year. The next-gen 5 Series range will include three models classified as per their body style: saloon (codename: BMW G30), estate/wagon (codename: BMW G31) and hatchback (codename: BMW G32). The latter will be the next-gen BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo.

The next-gen BMW 5 Series will be based on the new CLAR (Cluster Architecture) rear-wheel drive platform that currently underpins the new generation BMW 7 Series. Lightweight materials include carbon-fibre, magnesium, aluminium and high-tensile steel will reportedly help shed weight by up to 100 kg.

The 2017 BMW 5 Series will be available with an array of four-, six- and eight-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with displacements ranging from 2.0- to 4.4-litre. In the UK, BMW will reportedly offer B47 2.0-litre four-cylinder and B57 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel units and B48 2.0-litre four-cylinder and B58 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol units.

There’ll be a plug-in hybrid variant too, named BMW 5 Series iPerformance. It’ll reportedly be available in two models: BMW 530e and BMW 540e. Catering the performance enthusiasts, will be an all-new BMW M5 (codename: BMW F19), reportedly debuting at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, the next-gen BMW M5 will be the first BMW M5 to be available with an optional four-wheel drive system.
