India-bound 2017 BMW 5 Series – 2017 Geneva Motor Show Live


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

Will arrive in showrooms across India later this year.

The latest BMW 5 Series (G30) is being showcased at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show today, following its European premiere at the 2017 Vienna Auto Show. The new 5-ser is expected to arrive in India later this year.

Now in its seventh generation, the new BMW 5 Series features an evolutionary design that draws heavy inspiration from the current BMW 7 Series (BMW G11/G12) introduced in 2015. It measures 4,935 mm long, 1,868 mm wide and 1,466 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2,975 mm. Compared to the outgoing model, the 2017 5 Series is 5 mm longer, 6 mm wider and 2 mm taller, and the wheelbase has grown by 7 mm. Thanks to the new CLAR RWD platform, it is also lighter by up to 100 kg.

The new BMW 5 Series comes equipped with Adaptive LED Headlights with BMW Selective Beam, Park Assist, Remote Parking, Integral Active Steering, BMW Head-Up Display, iDrive 5 infotainment system with a 10.25-inch high-resolution display, iDrive controller with gesture control and Remote 3D View, and  wireless Apple CarPlay support.
