The latest Autobild previews the LCI BMW 5er which shows what lies behind the camouflage tape.
As per modern BMW and integrated as EfficientDynamics. The 5er LCI inherits Air curtains , as well as new detailing, a re-profiled nose that is slightly faired in headlamps and optional LED adaptive headlights.
The change is not radical as the 5er maintains its position as the segment benchmark. Of course there will be significant changes to engine options (550i Gets N63Tu Engine, 535d for US [source]
) and for entry customers the BMW 518 makes a return since the E34 albeit in diesel form.
Engineers have also incorporated slight changes to the car's steering as well as incorporating BMW's cylinder dimming introduced on the 7er.
Both the BMW 5er Touring and 5er Gran Turismo will debut at the same time.
