With the official launch of BMW’s latest version of their 5 Series midsized sedan getting closer, we are also getting a closer peek at what the 5 Series will look like, thanks to the Italian magazine, Quatroroute.

The Italian periodical’s rendering is a mixture of new BMW 7-Series front end and the BMW 5 Series GT.

Three design elements are certain to be incorporated into the new design: larger, lower and lighter. The future 5 will share its chassis with the 7 Series, but thanks to the introduction of smaller, more fuel efficient engines, the next 5 Series should weigh in substantially lighter.
