New midsize loses weight, gains new technology and 7 Series-inspired design

In 2014, our spy photographers spotted the new-generation BMW 5 Series stretching its wheels on the Nurburgring track for the very first time. Later that year, the sedan was caught once again testing in Europe. Come October 2016 and the new 5 Series finally made its official debut, showcasing its evolutionary design and state-of-the art features.

As seen with recently launched new Bimmers, the new midsize sedan lost some weight thanks to BMW using the carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) technology in the larger 7 Series, as well as magnesium, aluminum, and high-strength steel in the car’s chassis. The sedan is up to 137 pounds lighter than its predecessor (depending on trim and equipment), which isn’t a whole lot but enough to make a difference in the performance and fuel economy departments.

As expected, the new-generation 5 Series was unveiled with inline four-cylinder, six-cylinder, and V-8 engines for the North American market, with a high-performance M5 to follow in 2017. Meanwhile, the four-door made its U.S. debut at the Detroit Auto Show and is slated to arrive in dealerships starting February 2017.
