Only a few weeks are left before the presentation of the updated BMW 5 Series 2024 model, but a photo of the car without camouflage has already appeared on the Web.
The car will receive a new body, which lacks the characteristic lines inherent in today’s sedan. He will get new doorknobs. Behind you can see other lights.
BMW has already confirmed that the car will be offered with combustion engines as well as plug-in hybrid powertrains. There will also be at least two all-electric options as the automaker previously announced plans for the i5 eDrive40 and i5 M60 xDrive.
In addition, BMW has confirmed that the vehicle will feature a ninth-generation Vertical Dynamics Management system that uses “wheel speed, steering angle, yaw rate and acceleration to create the ideal damping force.” BMW is now prioritizing “the physical calculation of data from current driving conditions” and this promises to provide “well-defined body control and accurate suspension response in any driving situation.”
The model will also be offered with Adaptive Suspension Professional. This promises to help the car achieve the ride comfort levels of the 7 Series as well as the agility of the 3 Series.
The 5 Series will get major improvements and one of the highlights is the Highway Assistant, which allows you to drive the car hands-free at speeds up to 130 km/h. The camera monitors the driver to make sure he pays attention to the road ahead, and the system is equipped with an automatic lane change function that can be “controlled with the eyes”.
The facelifted BMW 5 Series will debut on May 24, with production starting this summer. The launch is expected in October.
