Decided restyling. The designers have turned the page by transforming the front of the 5 Series. Here, in fact, we find a taller and wider double kidney, combined with redesigned Led lights with a geometric cut for the daytime running lights and with the possibility to order, optionally, also the Led Matrix and Laserlight variants. The tail lights have been modified and now sport a three-dimensional effect. The bumpers have also been revised: the front air intakes have been retouched and, for all the variants, the integrated trapezoidal exhaust terminals have been introduced. The interventions on the bumpers and the front brought the total length to 4.96 meters, that is from 21 to 26 mm more than the outgoing version. The restyling is completed by the new body colors and the unprecedented models of alloy wheels: with the restyling, the 20 “Bmw Individual Air Performance models are also made available, which weigh less and offer greater aerodynamic efficiency, allowing a reduction of 3 g / km of CO2 emissions All interventions allow the Series 5 to achieve very low Cx values, equal to 0.23 for the sedan and 0.26 for the Touring.
Infotainment with 7.0 operating system. The interiors maintain the known setting but some updates for infotainment are foreseen (with 10.25 or 12.3 inch screen) thanks to the transition to version 7 of the operating system, which brings new features for the virtual assistant , introduces the BMW Maps, the Digital Key integrated in the smartphone and the compatibility with Android Auto and Apple Carplay wirelessly, in addition to the “over-the-air” updates. The dashboard also offers a new finish for secondary controls, while those on the steering wheel have been renewed.
