2021 BMW 5 Series images leaked online
The new BMW 5 series facelift images were leaked online, giving us an idea of what the new sedan could look like. From the images we can only get glimpses of the exteriors of the car. Officially, BMW is set to unveil the car next month. The leaked images showcase the new design of the 5 Series, there are not too many changes but it is in line with the rest of the BMW portfolio. There have been numerous photos of the car under camouflage being tested in and around Germany, and now we finally get an undisguised look of the car and it does not disappoint. Thanks to BMW Blog and Bimmerpost who were able to share these leaked images.
BMW with this new 5 Series redesign has restrained itself from adding its large kidney grilles that have come to be the key highlights in its other models such as the X7 and the 7 Series. For the 5 Series, it design has been kept it quite tasteful, keeping the grille a more modern appearance and giving it a sleek silhouette that goes well with the new headlamps on either side. Also, a redesigned bumper with bold sharp lines makes its way into the headlamp design. As for the rear design, the taillights seem to have been altered, giving it a much sharper design at the back.
The leaked images show the new 5 Series with the M Sport package that includes a bit more aggressive front and rear bumpers, and a larger wheel design, which also looks to be new for the M package.
Also noticeable in the images is the charging door in the front fender that indicates this will be the 530e, a plug-in hybrid model with a 2-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder that produces 181bhp, assisted by an electric motor that produces 107bhp, bringing the combined total to 288bhp.
This BMW 530e will sit alongside the other variants like the 530i and the M540i once it will be launched worldwide next month. BMW India has not given any timelines of when the new updated 5 Series will come to India, but most likely next year we should get this refreshed new model.
