Design: sporting elegance in
The highly expressive
front end, the elegantly stretched silhouette and the powerfully
chiselled rear end give the new long-wheelbase BMW 5 Series Sedan a
truly unmistakable look. Individual design features along the
roofline and the side view of the car ensure that the long-wheelbase

appearance, the coupť-like, flowing roofline comes out even more
convincingly through the sheer length of the car. The characteristic
daytime driving lights generated by LED light rings in conjunction
with the optional xenon headlights, as well as the L-shaped rear
lights with their homogeneous rows of lights, again contribute to
that very special look so characteristic of BMW.
