AutoBild posts an updated 2016 BMW 5 Series rendering


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Draws design cues from the new 7 Series.

Autobild has posted an updated rendering of the next generation BMW 5 Series (BMW G30), which is expected to break cover at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October.

The new BMW 5 Series is expected to break cover at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October.

As seen in several spyshots and reports that have influenced the rendering, the new 5 Series will draw design cues from the 2015 BMW 7 Series. For instance, the new LED headlamps run directly into the BMW grille that could feature active air ducts for efficient cooling, and a sportier bumper that is seemingly meant for the M Sport variant.

The next BMW 5 Series will be based on BMW’s all new CLAR RWD platform. First used in the new 7 Series, the platform integrates mass produced CFRP and various lightweight metals into its construction which has reportedly brought down the kerb weight by 100 kg.

Under the hood, the 5 Series will offer BMW’s latest B-Family engines, such as the B47 diesel and B48 petrol 2.0-litre four-cylinder units, B57 quad-turbo V6 diesel and B58 petrol 3.0-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder units. The top-end BMW M550i and the BMW M5 will pack a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine expected to output over 600 hp.
