BMW 5 series
NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2020
The 5 Series is getting a midcycle update that introduces a new 48-volt, mild-hybrid system. The updated sedan, which is 1.2 inches longer, wears the new face of BMW — an enlarged, squared-off pair of kidneys for a grille. The new grille design is taller and wider, reaching further down into the front bumper cover. The 2021 sedan is equipped with four-, six- and eight-cylinder engines. The six-cylinder models feature a new mild-hybrid system with a 48-volt starter-generator that boosts performance and fuel economy, BMW said.
The performance variant of BMW’s midsize sedan has also been refreshed for the 2021 model year. The M5 is powered by a 4.4-liter turbo V-8 with 600 hp and 553 pound-feet of torque. The Competition package boosts horsepower up to 617 hp. As with the regular 5 series sedan, there's updated front and rear styling plus a larger 12.3-inch infotainment system inside.
