Prototype of updated BMW 5 Series with M Sport package seenNovember 21, 2019
Journalists captured the prototype of the updated BMW 5 Series sedan, although the car was disguised quite strongly, it was still possible to distinguish elements of the updated exterior. Presentation of new items is expected in 2020.
Earlier this month, “spy” photos of the disguised prototype of the updated version of the M5 were published, but now, our publication has a fresh batch of images that capture the usual performance of the 5 series. It is noteworthy that this car received some elements of the BMW M Performance. A test sample of such a car was on German public roads.
It is worth noting that, contrary to the current trend at BMW, the Bavarian novelty did not receive a huge false radiator grille – branded nostrils will not be large.
It is expected that in the new version of the mid-size sedan, around the grill there will be new headlights with a redesigned LED daytime running lights, which in some ways will even look like a similar solution in the Audi TT sports coupe. The front bumper also seems to be a bit updated, as the lower grille, which seems to have gotten a little bigger and is now surrounded by more massive air intakes.
There is a lot of camouflage in the back of the car, which does not allow us to see possible changes in the design, although it can be replaced that the graphics of the rear lights look different. The side profile of the novelty shows the so-called “hockey stick.” On the front wing, we also see the M badge hiding behind a black ribbon. The BMW logo is missing on wheels, but this should be expected from a test prototype.
We do not expect any significant changes in the car interior – most likely the digital dashboard and infotainment system will be updated – the screen of this system may well increase in size. The layout of some exterior elements may well be altered.
According to insiders, the Bavarian company BMW will begin to present updated versions of the business family of the 5th series in 2020.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the BMW M8 Gran Coupe has already stood on the conveyor belt before the official presentation. The official presentation of the new four-door sedan will take place tomorrow as part of the press day before the opening of the Los Angeles Auto Show.
