Latest generation BMW 5 Series showcased at Bangkok 2017

BMW has showcased the latest generation 5 Series sedan for the Thai market at the 2017 Bangkok Motor Show. It is offered with both petrol and diesel engine options. This is the same car which will come to India later this year and replace the current model that has been on sale since 2014.
Externally, this new 5 Series (dubbed as generation G30) takes much of its design cues from the 7 Series. Noticeable elements include the kidney grille, LED head lamps and tail lamps and of course, that long, sporty silhouette that defines the model. The cabin is an evolution of the current car and gets the same layout but now with bigger screens and gesture control. On the engine and gearbox front, the Thai market gets the car in the 520d and 530i guises. The former gets a 2.0-litre diesel while the 530i is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol producing 252bhp/350Nm.
