Electrifying rebirth: BMW 5 series revamps and challenges the future with style, technology and power

The rebirth of the BMW 5 Series takes the Bavarian flagship saloon to new heights. With a complete aesthetic and functional reworking, it presents itself more imposing, adopting an aggressive and eye-catching design.

The new cockpit is dominated by the BMW Curved Display, which combines instrumentation and infotainment. But the real revolution is under the bonnet: the 5 Series dives into the electric age with the i5 versions. Among them, the M60 xDrive impresses with a twin 601 hp engine, 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.8 seconds and a range of up to 516 km.

An unprecedented evolution for a car that never ceases to amaze.

The frontal design
While maintaining a more restrained profile than the 4 Series and XM, BMW's front end is more menacing, with a wider double kidney grille and thin, angled LED headlights, simulating an angry expression.
