Scoop! Next-Gen BMW 5 series pictures leaked

2012 BMW 5 series-3

We, at WoS have been looking forward to the launch of the next-gen BMW 5 series, which is just a day away. However, the moment we have all been waiting for has just become more exciting with the photos of the next-gen BMW 5 series being leaked online. Looking at the leaked photos, we just cant wait to have a look at the entire deal.

While these images can be considered as teasers, we are very eagerly looking forward to the full unveiling. The headlights look like magnified version of the 7-series’ and the best part is the radiator grille which is much better looking than the 7-series’. Before we compare to the bigger 7, lets wait for the full vehicle. The images seem to be from a rehearsal for the official unveiling ceremony to be held on Monday.

Ex-BMW styling chief Chris Bangle is conspicuous by his absence in BMW. The trademark flame surfacing of the previous 5-series that made it such a stunning design is all gone. The front end, in my opinion looked much better on the previous 5-series although that does not mean that this is dull. The old one is a classic with love/hate looks while this is moves towards appealing to a wider audience.

As with every BMW, it does look sporty from the initial pictures although we are yet to see the full picture. Those black dots beside the front wheel arches are actually side view cameras that come on the 7 series as well. What about India? Well, we expect it to be here soon after its international launch as the new 5 is expected to really retain its position as the King of the three Germans.

With so much information from these few photos, we will return on Monday with lots more. Stay tuned to WoS.

I don’t understand why BMW comes out with radiator grille upgrades and boasts about them…

    Dear Mr.Mukherji,
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting. BMW is doing the same type of modification for a while now. They may be convinced by the market response so continuing the strategy. In India BMW customers may be too choosy. But in Europe BMW is just another brand for customers. So they may watch these facelifts and new launches in that angle.
