New BMW 5 Series & 600hp i5 REVEALED!

Meet the brand New 5 Series & !

This is the first 5 Series that's been developed to come with an internal combustion engine in addition to a pure electrical , so let's discover whatever you need to understand about these all-new vehicles!

Both cars and trucks come with a large double-kidney grille, and they're available with standard vertical bar styles or in all-black for M Sport trim levels. Along the side, you'll find flush door deals with and creases across the doors that seem pretty similar to the E-Class, while at the back there's a whole load of black trim throughout the rear bumper, and the brake lights can be found in an all-new design.

All in all, the interior of the 5 Series and is super clever!

Then we come to the option of engines. For those wanting to stick with an internal combustion engine, there's not a lot of choice at the minute, with simply one petrol engine offered – the mild-hybrid 520i features a 2-litre 4 cylinder engine and an electrical motor which combine to produce 208hp and 330Nm. Plug-in hybrid automobiles are likewise on the horizon, but will not be released up until 2024.

Nevertheless, for those selecting the , there are two options offered, with the range-topper being the M60. This includes 2 electrical motors which combine to produce 601hp – just 24hp less than an M5 Competitors! What's more, it likewise produces a tremendous 820Nm – 70Nm more than the M5!

When it concerns the cost, the petrol-powered 5 Series begins with simply under ₤ 50,000, while the i5 starts from ₤ 73,200, rising all the method as much as ₤ 97,000 for the i5 M60! So is it worth it? You'll need to keep seeing to see on your own!

      The 3, X5 (and maybe 4/i4) are the last good looking ‘new’ models from BMW

      why does the front look like a 1 series. its so ugly

      Is it ironic that the cheaper companies now look like classy BMWs while BMW looks like a cheap knock-off of cheap brands?

      thats what i thought, until i realised that the car has been out for 6 years, 7 years when the new one comes

      G30 for life. They should keep the exterior as is, and tech refresh the interior.

      Too squashed in the front, meant to be long sweeping saloon with beautiful lines 😐

      I thoroughly agree with you.
      They have ruined all the other designs. Only hope was the 5 series. And the same fate happened to it. So sadddd.

      it’s much better than XM, I was expecting worse

      Still better than anything from bmw at the moment

      Its fine, relax. Not that bad

      Another horrendous design. The last bmw for me which ticked all the boxes was the e92 and that wasn’t yesterday.

    I think the previous model still is definitely gorgeous and more beautiful that this one for sure, but at least it’s not as ugly as the new 7 series

    1. Olympbarca Avatar

      @Olympbarca Looks cheap and tacky. BMWs are supposed to be classy and understated.

    Good thing is, it doesn’t look terribly ugly. Bad thing is, the old one looks much better.

      That’s what we always said after any new generation

      @Bavarian Car Enthusiast no, the previous gen just looks better.

      Bavarian Car Enthusiast

      @SWENWAR ok cool – let’s say I did. I had 3 of the prior generation, still like it a lot. But the world moves on, my next will be an EV.
      I learned early that good design which is mixing up the market is controversial first, then it sinks in, then it is copied.
      Pleasing design is copying what you likes, you initially like it a lot but after a while it’s just “meh”.

    4. alexnitu Avatar

      @Bavarian Car Enthusiast really? do you feel like Porsche cars look meh?

    5. SWENWAR Avatar

      @Bavarian Car Enthusiast I don’t like that kind of thinking. Yes, the “world moves on”, but that doesn’t always mean it’s the right way. Moving on, doesn’t mean worse design. I actually prefer Mercedes, BMW and Audi’s previous generations over the latest ones. When F10 and G30 came out, I liked them more than previous gen at the very beginning.

    The previous version had the coherent design with sleek headlight. Even the horizontal kidney grill looked proportionate and good. They f’d up the headlights with that unnecessary brow lift. Profile looks nice and the rear is nice too. Shame, it could’ve been iconic.
    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

      @Ertugrul Bae yeah and if i remember correctly the e60 was also controversial in terms of headlight design especially when people compared them to the previous e39 5 series

      @Ertugrul Bae It’s more like a throw away…this is ugly

  12. SB123 Avatar

    As a BMW fan, it’s a shame they got rid of the famous angel eye/halo design on the headlights. I think with most people, they will talk about the designs and will eventually grow on them. I don’t see much being talked about the current 4 series front end compared to when it was first launched. I would wait to see it in the flesh as pictures make most cars look horrid at first glance.

    1. Ace Kuzmanovski Avatar
      Ace Kuzmanovski

      We don’t talk about the 4 series front end since with every new car they up the ante and make it uglier. The new 7 series took the ugliness pole position from the 4 series, and this 5 series is the new uglier contender on the pole position. That is until the next new BMW, which undoubtedly be even uglier. I can’t understand hoe this BMW designers don’t get fired for this almost criminal ugliness which ruines all the masterpices provided by the BMW engineers

    2. SB123 Avatar

      @Ace Kuzmanovski well that’s your
      Opinion, do you think a Tesla is good looking instead then? I don’t mind new BMW designs, as soon as manufacturers make something simple and generic, people complain how boring it looks and they haven’t tried, when manufacturers try to be different, it’s always its ugly and designers need to be fired, you just can’t win with people.

      BMW just lost its elegance in the past years. When I look at my dad’s 23-year old 535i, I see such a sleek, yet powerful car. Like it’s owned by a succesful businessman or CEO. I don’t want to say the new one is XM/iX/7 series levels of ugly, but it has defenitly lost its charm. I dunno, its just waaaay to busy of a design, like it’s missing a soul or something. Its like the designers just did whatever, a like here or a crease there. I dont like it.

    4. dariuce Avatar

      the 4 series i very beautifull ,it was only a bit controversial but they did not fully change the shape like here,this looks like a chunkier 2 series gc

    5. dariuce Avatar

      @SB123 why change something so much if it s not broken,the change from the f10 to the f90 was so minimal but this….

      Most BMWs from the 80s until a few years ago looked great.
      BMW was the “designer brand”… I’m saying that as someone who studied design and if you looked at the cars everyone drove, students and professors, something like 60% of our cars were BMWs.
      This was 15 years ago and I highly doubt it would be like that today.

      @60thirty there were millions of people who said e46 was the last good looking 3 series.

    5. 60thirty Avatar

      @Labas Labas as if the e92 wasn’t one of the most timeless and sought after 3 series up until recently😂

    Wow! Hats off to BMW. They’ve achieved a level of greatness by designing yet another shocking motor, thus push enthusiasts back to previous generations. In this case, E and F series are about to sky rocket in value! Hold on to you previous models folks

    3. KnotPhound Avatar

      ​​@Papi- Eron Nah, it is also terrible. It looks really good in the most basic way, but it is once again one of those vehicles that really want to center everything around a screen. You don’t even get a fucking volume knob.

      Also, the ambient lighting looks kinda cool, but it might be distracting to some, which could be dangerous.

      To be fair the current generation 5 series is the only good looking car they still make, and now that’s out the window too with this new one. A G31 in black with high gloss shadowline pack looks incredible, multiple 540i’s in this spec near where I live

    Absolutely ❤ my G31 530d xDrive. Looks classy, has 700 miles of range, all physical controls, and I could actually afford to buy it and own it outright. I’ll keep driving it until it literally falls apart.

    One thing you could have added and is worthwhile to consider is the WLTP efficiency. Yes it’s not a perfect metric but useful to compare it with other similar cars like the EQE. It’s a measure of how good the overall engineering truly is.
