The design of the new BMW 5-Series Sedan exudes athletic prowess, elegance and stylistic assurance. The new model therefore remains the quintessential sporting business sedan. “The new BMW 5-Series will make a mature, confidently stylish and dynamic impression at every opportunity. The formal and precise design combines presence, aesthetic appeal and functionality in equal measure,” says Karim Habib, Head of Design BMW Automobiles. The exterior dimensions of the new car are only slightly larger than those of its predecessor. The new BMW 5-Series Sedan is 36 millimetres longer than the outgoing model (at 4,935 millimetres), six millimetres wider (1,868 millimetres) and two millimetres taller (1,466 millimetres). Its wheelbase measures 2,975 millimetres (+7 millimetres).
a more striking face, LED headlights as standard
The familiar BMW kidney grille, flanked by twin circular headlights, lends the front of the new BMW 5-Series a more eye-catching appearance. The glass headlight covers now connect seamlessly with the kidney grille, emphasising the car’s width.
The standard LED headlights already make the BMW 5-Series a captivating prospect, its concentrated gaze locked onto the road. Adaptive LED Headlights alter the light graphic and can be specified as an option with BMW Selective Beam anti-dazzle high beam with a range of up to 500 metres. The LED tubes of the daytime driving lights are hexagonal and extend up to the kidney grille element, creating a stylistic connection which accentuates the wide, low-to-the-road appearance of the front end.
