The all-new BMW 5-Series will make its would debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show along with the new M Performance, i Performance and plug-in hybrid electric. The all-new BMW 5 Series is slightly longer, wider and taller. It comes with a bevy of new features including adaptive LEDs.

The passenger cell is set back and leads the eye over a flowing roofline to the rear end, while a short front overhang underscores the car’s sporty appearance.

“For the first time, the new BMW 5 Series sedan brings together two traditional BMW design elements which are normally separate from one another. The swage line turns up as it heads rearwards, moving from shadow to light and sweeping up the Hofmeister kink in its path rather than continuing into the rear. This upwards motion lends the car a forward-surging character, and the expressive, swooping surface imbues it with an undeniable muscularity,” said Karim Habib, head of BMW Design.
