The next-generation BMW 5 Series has been spotted in California on test by Automobilemag. The new-generation caught on camera was heavily camouflaged and it will be launching next year. The new-generation 5 Series is a lot lighter, powerful and more fuel-efficient too than the outgoing version. The shape of the new 5 Series can understood despite the heavy covering. The silhouette is similar to the current generation 5 Series but underneath there are multiple changes. The design is a lot sleeker and sharper too.The new 5 Series is likely to have interiors similar in design and layout to the new 7 Series. The new-generation iDrive from the 7 Series will also be making its way into the 5 Series.
The BMW 5 Series will be getting a range of new engines and the entry-level to come on the 5 Series will be the 1.5-litre three-cylinder. There will be other four-cylinder and V6 engines too on offer as well. This will be based on the CLAR platform and will also be getting carbon-fibre and aluminium body panels.
