2023 BMW 5 Series Sedan Revealed
Just one month after Mercedes-Benz unveiled the most recent E-class, BMW has revealed the first batch of information and images about its all-new 5 Series sedan. The all-electric i5 lineup, which is identical to the i7 for the most recent 7 Series premium sedan, is now available for the 2023 BMW 5 Series (codename: G60). In addition to the all-electric i5, the most recent BMW 5 Series lineup is also available with petrol, diesel, and plug-in hybrid engines, depending on the market.
The aesthetic of the 5 Series G60 is less of a “revolution” than it is more of an evolution of the previous-generation vehicle, as was the case when BMW changed the 7 Series to give it a distinctive front end. The 2023 BMW 5 Series maintains the same basic appearance of its before, skipping over the massive grille and the bizarre split headlamp design in favour of aesthetics that makes the BMW 5 Series instantly recognisable. It has flush-fit door handles similar to those on the 7 Series, sharper end bumpers with blacked-out inserts, and slender taillights, giving it a distinctly more contemporary appearance.
Approximately 85mm longer, 33mm wider, and 35mm taller than the model it replaces, the new 5 Series is larger overall. Additionally, it has a 20mm longer wheelbase, which might add a little bit more space for the back legs. The drag coefficient of the new automobile is 0.23.
The upgraded 3 Series, the M2, and the most recent 7 Series, among other more recent BMWs, all include the newest twin-screen cockpit, which is also featured inside the new 5 Series. It makes advantage of the most recent iDrive 8.5 system, which recently made its debut in the i7 M70. The 12.3-inch driver’s display and 14.9-inch touchscreen used for infotainment are the same sizes as on other BMW models.
The most recent 5 Series receives the same extensive list of features as the preceding models, including different finishes for the inside trim and seating. Additionally, this 2023 BMW 5 Series is the first BMW to include an entirely vegan interior.
The BMW Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform, which also supports all BMW models with either a longitudinally mounted internal combustion engine or an electric motor, serves as the foundation for the new 5 Series.
The 520i, 520d, and 520d xDrive models will be the first to be offered in the 5 Series’ global lineup. Later, the plug-in hybrid 530e and 550e xDrive models will join them in Europe. Additionally, there are future intentions to introduce a 6-cylinder diesel in a few areas.
The base 520i will have a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with 205 horsepower. A version with 190 hp less power will also be available in several European markets. The 2.0-liter diesel engine in the 520d now produces 197 horsepower, an increase of 7 horsepower. The 2.0-liter engine in the 530e plug-in hybrid produces a combined 299 horsepower. With xDrive, the more potent 550e plug-in hybrid receives a 3.0-liter inline six with 489 horsepower.
The 530i will be offered in RWD or xDrive AWD configuration and feature a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine with 255 horsepower for the North American market. The more powerful 540i, with its 375 horsepower 3.0-liter inline six and 4.5-second sprint from zero to one hundred kilometres per hour, will only be offered with xDrive.
The BMW 5 Series has been a fairly popular model in India and is a serious competitor to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. We have confirmation from sources that the long-wheelbase body type would be present on the upcoming 5 Series that will be sold in India.
Next year, when the eighth-generation BMW 5 Series LWB will also face competition from the ninth-generation E-Class sedan, expect it to arrive in India.
