TopSpeed Rendering: 2014 BMW 5-Series Facelift

BMW 5-Series

At the end of October, we brought you the first spy shots of the facelifted version of the BMW 5-Series sedan . That prototype was wearing camouflage over the good parts — the parts being updated —so it was kind of difficult to see what changes the 2014 5-Series will bear. Thanks to our crack rendering team, we have a our rendering of the 2014 5-Series. We hope it gives you a clearer look at what we all expect to see when Bimmer unveils it.

The most significant changes will be made up front, as it will feature new air intakes on the front bumper, a new headlight design and a grille that sits more upright. As you can see, we have also included headlights that go all the way to the grille — a feature first seen on the 3-Series and that we expected to make its way over to the 5-Series lineup.

Most of the changes will be limited to the exterior, but there will be one under-hood change. This change will be the elimination of the N55 engine in the 535i and the addition of a new turbocharged in-line six-cylinder.

this car has a very elegant look. i think it is great. i think bmw is better safe than sorry!

i think the "ugly" bmw did well in sales. so, no gamble-no win.

i think they are playing it safe this time.

tinur is right. a buzz like that makes people aware of the car! and that means more potential buyers.

hey, a buzz like that sold so many cars!

maybe the ones at bmw remember the reactions the 2004 bmw startled and they want to avoid that!

midocar may be right. audi too has thiner head lamps.

i think they are trying to get closer to what audi has done.

snow has a point. you could get the same technology for a lower price, which is awesome.

otto, it is good if there are no big changes. that means the old model will be cheaper.

the changes are minor. i hope they are more than that.

i think the face-lift looks good.
