A test vehicle of the BMW 5 Series has been spotted doing the rounds in China. This new car is expected to be unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show and will be the seventh generation for the German automaker’s mid-level sedan.
From the photos we can see that this new 5 Series will get the latest headlamp design from the BMW stable. However, the overall design will be an evolution rather than something completely new as is the case with the latest 7 Series. It is also expected to become longer and wider than the current car.
On the technology front, this new car is expected to make use of the CLAR RWD platform which has integrated carbon fibre into various bits of the body work and will help the car shed up to 100kgs. The other thing we know is that this 5 Series will be offered with a range of six-cylinder and eight-cylinder motors in the range of 2.5-litres to 4.0-litres.
