The new BMW 5 Series BMW 5 Series – from the front
The Front – starting point of flowing lines. The front end is the starting point of all flowing lines, which extend from the bonnet to the sides and well into the rear of the BMW 5 Series in one integral movement.
The characteristic contours of the headlights underline the dynamic, self- confident personality of the BMW 5 Series.
Modifications were made to the lower enclosure of the double kidney grille in the front valance. As a result of the deliberate omission of a formal link, the double kidney appears more powerful and autonomous.
The air inlet is wider. Its modified exterior with integrated fog-lights bears an optical resemblance to the headlight cluster.
