2017 BMW 5 Series India Review – Exterior Design
The new generation model builds on the design of the outgoing 5-Series. It borrows design cues from the flagship 7-Series sedan. BMW’s signature “Kidney Grille” is now larger and sits more upright with the headlamps neatly flowing into it. The sides feature a 7-Series like vent behind the front wheel arch with chrome or black detailing based on the trim. The overall, design bears some resemblance to the older car, a fact that is most noticeable in the rear angles of the 5-Series. Like most modern BMWs, the headlights, tail lamps and fog lamps are full LED units.
