The BMW 5 Series’ company car classic remain in the program, but the focus of the current facelift is the new hybrid versions. Site shows all the details of the new 5.
In itself, BMW wanted to solemnly reveal the motting maintenance of his successful 5 Series at the car show in Korea. But the Corona pandemic also destroyed this official world premiere. The refreshed model as well as the closely related 6 Series will be onto the market in July. The plug-in hybrids are increasingly in focus.
New BMW 5 Series is based on the 7 Series
No big surprise that the new BMW 5 and 6 of the 2021 model year are based on the design revisions on the latest top models 7 Series and X7. In this respect, the front headlights have become narrower and a little more memorable due to the L-shape. There is also a new light signature of the LED arches at the rear. However, much otherwise did not happen much. Technically, the changes were more profound, because after the revision, the four- and six-cylinder engines are equipped with a 48-volt sector network for the first time, which should significantly lower consumption. The 48-volt starter generator relieves the combustion engine with an additional power of 8 kW / 11 hp, boosts and presses the real consumption on the side. So far there has been only one variant with plug-in hybrid drive with the BMW 530e, the offer will be expanded to include an image-prone six-cylinder, which will be inspired by the drive unit of the BMW 745e from November.

The well-known operating and display elements in the refreshed 5 Series also hike from the BMW 7 Series and X7. In addition to the display behind the also new steering wheel, there is a 10.25 -inch display field for navigation and the numerous functions that can optionally be increased to contemporary 12.3 inches.
