The interiors of the next-generation BMW 5 Series has been spied sans camouflage just ahead of the sedan’s debut on October 13. This is the seventh generation for the Bavarian automaker’s mid-size competitor and comes nearly 40 years after the model was introduced.
The pictures show us what we have been predicting all along which is that the design of the cabin is evolutionary rather than something completely new. This is not a bad thing at all as the cabin of the current car was minimalistic yet luxurious, well-engineered and loaded to the gills with features.
In terms of upgrades, we can see that there has been liberal use of chrome and leather everywhere while both the instrument cluster as well as the screen for the infotainment system has become larger compared to the outgoing model.
This new car will be revealed on October 13 and will go into production in November. Sales are expected to begin in Europe in January 2017 while we in India are likely to get the car around February or March of next year. It will arrive here via the CKD route and be offered with a range of diesel and petrol engines.
