The 2021 BMW 5-Series is seven generation of this popular model from BMW factory. In BMW tradition, the car will receive a facelift to keep it looking and feeling fresh over the second half of its life.
A prototype for the face-lifted version of the 5-Series sedan has just been spotted. The first test of new model 2021 BMW 5-Series was done, including high-performance M5 model as well.
According spy photos, camouflage material seen here suggests we'll be treated with a revised grille and front fascia. Likewise, the rear fascia will also be revised and we may also see tweaks to the taillight signature.
The grille in particular will likely adopt the merged double-kidney design that features on the latest 3-Series and 7-Series models. Thankfully, the changes don't appear to be as extensive as those on the facelift in 7-Series. The 5-Series in its current form is already a handsome brute.
Engine option for new 2021 BMW 5-Series
It will be the standard engine options as the 5-Series is already tapped to receive some new engine for the 2020 model year. For example, the 530e iPerformance plug-in hybrid receives a new battery delivering more electric range and the M550i a more powerful V-8.
There is possibility that the 530i and 540i could see more power or perhaps the addition of mild-hybrid technology with the arrival of the facelifted 5-Series. Also, there is an option that the facelifted 5 Series is expected to gain one new hybrid option.
It isn't clear if there any changes pegged for the cabin but an updated infotainment system and new electronic driver assist features are likely.
2021 BMW 5-Series Release date
Release date for new 5-Series should be in the second half of 2020. Considering current situation it’s possible that promotion will be postponed few month later.
