As the time for the 2024 BMW 5 series full-change model approaches, the thickness of the camouflage film is gradually getting thinner. The exterior design is at a level that can be inferred from the gradually revealed outline, but it is drawing attention because it is on a completely different route from the recently released new 7 series.
New 5 series
The new 5 series does not have the huge grille and split lighting design that was recently introduced in the 7 series. A conservative approach was applied.
However, the latest design trend of BMW was applied by applying the vertical air intake design in the front bumper. On the side, the shoulder line is emphasized to create a solid sense of volume, and a flush-type door handle is applied to help reduce air resistance. The design of the geometric pattern was applied to the wheel.
Bigger changes are made in the rear than in the front. Along with the 3D- shaped rear lamp design, the trunk lid design with a rear spoiler stands out.
It is known that a 12.3- inch digital dashboard and a 14.9- inch infotainment system display will be placed in the form of a curved display inside the vehicle. In addition, a new design steering wheel and a larger iDrive controller are expected to be applied.
As for the powertrain, gasoline, diesel, plug-in hybrid, and pure electric models are provided. In the case of the 540i model, it is known that a 3- liter six-cylinder engine will produce 375 horsepower, and a model with a twin-turbo 4.4- liter V8 engine will produce 536 horsepower.
Electric vehicle model
In the case of an electric vehicle model, it is known that the dual motor four-wheel drive produces 536 horsepower, and the high-performance M5 model consists of a plug-in hybrid and boasts an output of 644 horsepower.
