But everything was different with the current model families. The BMW series of 5 drove the competition from Audi A6, Volvo S80, Cadillac CTS and Mercedes E-Class and became a worldwide model of success.
5 Series BMW comes later than the E-Class
The lanes of the current F10 (5 Series) and F11 (5 Series Touring) are large for the successor G30, which celebrates its world premiere in autumn 2016. He has around nine months behind the new Mercedes E-Class of the W 213 series, which is well prepared in Detroit in mid-January on the bright show stage and will be available in April. Around half a year later, i.e. mid -2017, the next Audi A6 comes – with a completely new design from the hand of Marc Lichten.

The 5 Series BMW was also completely newly developed, but is based on its design on the predecessor introduced in 2010 and was lifted in 2013, of which more than 350 annually.000 vehicles from the work in Dingolfing rolled. As with A6 and E-Class, the Chinese 5-series version with a long wheelbase is also a must, which will follow in mid-2017. The combination model Touring is only in demand in Europe. Despite great criticism of the design, the thick 5 Series GT will get a successor at a later date.
Bonds on the 7 Series
In the new 5 Series you will see clear bonds on the current model and the larger brother 7 Series just presented. Compared to the predecessor, the G30 has slimmed down by 100 kilograms and weighs, for example, as BMW 520D under 1.6 tons; The Bayer is clearly ahead of the Mercedes E-Class, which was lighter by up to 70 kilograms. However, the majority of the Swabian detached cure went to the benefit of the new four-cylinder diesel OM 642, which with its aluminum construction already gave up almost 40 kilograms.

How autonomous does the new 5er drive?
The future belongs to autonomous driving – at the moment, Audi and Mercedes are more of the tone in this discipline. It remains to be seen how long the BMW developers under chief instructor Klaus FrOhlich leave the new 5 Series off the leash in autonomous driving. The upcoming Mercedes E-Class will be able to control several minutes on streets with separate lanes without the driver. The current 7 Series BMW calls on its driver to contact steering wheel after around four seconds. The acceptance of such comfort and security function could be crucial in the next few years when it comes to the fleet customers that are so important in this league.
