New BMW 5-Series to be internationaly unveiled October 13

By Deeq on 12 Oct 2016 in New model

BMW has confirmed it will unveil the new, seventh-generation 5-Series on October 13, 2016.

In the lead up, the automaker has released a handful of videos previewing some of the technology that will be available on the mid-size luxury sedan (and wagon in some markets).


These will include semi-autonomous driving aids, such as features that help keep the car in its lane, allow the car to control itself in slow-moving traffic, and sense potential emergencies and provide brake support if necessary. It also looks like there will be a neat remote view feature that, via a smartphone app, provide the owner with a view of the area surrounding the car.


It will ride on a shortened version of the carbon fiber-infused platform that debuted in the 2016 7-Series and, judging from spy shots of prototypes, will also borrow the BMW flagship’s styling.

As for engines, expect 4, 6 and 8-cylinder options to remain on offer, all with direct-injection and turbocharging technologies. A plug-in hybrid model is also planned, as are new generations of the M5 and related 5-Series Gran Turismo.

It is not clear when the model will be reaching our shores.
