2024 BMW 5-Series: Design

The India-spec model has not gone through the knife, and it is identical to the global-spec model. The new-gen 5-Series looks distinctive yet easily recognizable. The headlamps get swept-back treatment, while the softer lines are now swapped with razer-sharp creases. The use of chrome is limited, it instead gets a brushed finish around the grille, which features piano-black inserts and light surrounds. The exterior design is in tandem with the cues used on the flagship 7-Series saloon. The 18-inch alloy wheels look small, but there will be larger options on the list. The new 5-Series is longer as the name suggests. It now tapes in at 5,175 mm in length, 1,900 mm in width, and 1,520 mm in height, and it boasts a 3,105 mm long wheelbase.

Like the exterior, interior design is a big departure from what was offered on the outgoing model. The dashboard sports a large free-standing 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment unit. The cockpit gets a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster to keep things tech-enabled. Other highlights include a four-zone climate control, powered & ventilated front seats, a premium 18-speaker Bowers & Wilkin sound system, and Level-2 ADAS.

2024 BMW 5-Series: Performance

In all likelihood, the 2024 BMW 5-Series will launch with 2.0L turbo-petrol for the 530Li trim with an electric boost. However, the chances of keeping the diesel engine at bay are high. The transmission will be an 8-speed automatic as a standard affair across the range. There could be a more powerful M variant of the 5-Series, but there's no official confirmation about their arrival. The 5-Series in the new-gen avatar will also miss out on air suspension.

2024 BMW 5-Series: Price & Launch Date
