Chronology
PredecessorBMW 5 Series (F10)

The seventh generation of the BMW 5 Series consists of the BMW G30 (sedan version) and BMW G31 (wagon version, marketed as 'Touring') executive cars. The G30/G31 has been produced since 2016 and is often collectively referred to as the G30.

It was officially announced on 12 October 2016 and sales began in February 2017.[8]

The fastback 5 Series Gran Turismo model from the previous generation is no longer part of the 5 Series model range, and has been moved to the 6 Series Gran Turismo nameplate.[9] A long-wheelbase sedan version (model code G38) is sold in China.

Development and launch[edit]

The lead designer of the G30 was Karim Habib.[10]

The 5 Series saloon was unveiled on 12 October 2016[11] before making its public debut in January 2017 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.[12]

BMW created The Escape, a short action film featuring a 540i M Sport, to promote the G30 5 Series.[13] The Escape was released online on 23 October 2016.[14][15]

The 5 Series Touring was unveiled in February 2017[16] before making its public debut in March at the Geneva Motor Show.[17]

The 5 Series long-wheelbase model debuted in April 2017 at the Shanghai Motor Show.[18] Its wheelbase is 133 millimetres (5.2 in) longer than that of the normal 5 Series saloon[18] and is exclusively sold in China.[18]

Body styles[edit]

Specifications[edit]

Platform[edit]

The G30 5 Series utilises BMW's modular Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform[19] first introduced in the 7 Series (G11).[20] The 5 Series' chassis is made from a mixture of different grades of steel and aluminium.[21]

Much of the 5 Series' body panels are constructed of aluminium, including the bonnet, boot lid, roof and doors.[22]

Suspension and steering[edit]

The 5 Series uses double-wishbone front suspension and 5-link rear suspension[19] while Touring models feature self-levelling rear air suspension.[16] Active anti-roll bars (named "Dynamic Drive") are optional equipment.[23]

All versions of the 5 Series use rack and pinion steering with electric power assistance.[24] "Integral Active Steering" is an option on some models; and combines electromechanical four-wheel steering and a variable-ratio steering rack.[23][25]

Powertrain[edit]

The 5 Series is offered with a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. It is also offered as a plug-in hybrid.[26]

Up until 2018, 520d models were fitted as standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, while the ZF 8HP 8-speed automatic transmission is optional.[23] All other models, including the 520d xDrive, are exclusively available with the ZF automatic transmission.[27][28]

BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system is optional on some base models and is standard fitment on top-of-the-line models.

Equipment[edit]

Interior

Compared with its F10 predecessor, the G30 includes an updated BMW iDrive system with a higher resolution 10.25-inch display, a new heads-up display that covers 70% more area as well as selective anti-dazzle high beam headlights with a range of up to 500 metres.[29] The 5 Series is also available with gesture control, new multi-contour massage seats, and a Driving Assistant Plus package that features lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and a collision warning system.[30]
