For the upcoming sedan, the sport streamline will be again returned to the BMW 5 series.

Improvements

Despite the changes and upgrades are little known for public, some rumors report that the sports car will not possibly bring the major changes. For sure, the BMW 5 series comes with lighter weight at around 225 pounds compared to the predecessor sine it uses a new carbon-fiber intensive modular material. A credible source, Top Speed, unveils the forthcoming BMW 5 will have longer headlights that unfold from smaller 3 into a wide kidney grille, the new X4 and the third-generation of X5. The car design is anyhow not final, so it still opens possibilities for any revamps.

Out of the outlook styling, the new 5 series will also be equipped with high-tech tools similar as 2017 BMW 7. The car will bring a new entertainment system with a hand gesture response. Moreover, the sophisticated remote-controlled parking technology will be enhanced to the high end model of the new BMW 5 Series 2018.

Engines Platform

The stunning BMW 5 will boost the car’s performance by engaging the new version of the plug-in hybrid powertrain that powers the recent X5 xDrive40e. The engine will be a turbocharged 2.0 liter version that could generally produce 245 horsepower and 113 horsepower synchronized with 8-speed automatic transmission. With this set, the 2018 BMW 5 will successfully reach 20 miles, and return at least 70 mpg as the power sources all work. Automaker also sets up to enhance the top version of iconic 2018 BMW 5 Series with twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This engine could approximately produce over 600 horsepower, way faster than the current model.

2018 BMW 5 Series Release Date and Price

The price list for the 2018 BMW 5 Series is still an unknown. One that is obvious, BMW is still in a hard work to build this BMW series. Hence, we might expect that the car first on show will be sometime in 2017 in the Frankfurt Auto Show.
