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 by the German automaker BMW and is often collectively referred to as the G30. It was officially announced on 12 October 2016 and sales began in February 2017.[6]

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.[7] A long-wheelbase sedan version (model code G38) is sold in China.

On 27 May 2020, a facelifted 5 Series was unveiled. Although the 2021 BMW 5 Series is 1.2 inches longer than the 2020 model, many of the vehicle's other dimensions remain unchanged despite the styling redesign.[8]

Development and launch[edit]

The BMW Head of Design during the development of the G30 was Karim Habib.[1] Interior design was led by Daniel Mayerle.[2]

The 5 Series saloon was unveiled on 12 October 2016[9] before making its public debut in January 2017 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.[10]

BMW created The Escape, a short action film featuring a 540i M Sport, to promote the G30 5 Series.[11] The Escape was released online on 23 October 2016.[12][13]

The 5 Series Touring was unveiled in February 2017[14] before making its public debut in March at the Geneva Motor Show.[15]

The 5 Series long-wheelbase model debuted in April 2017 at the Shanghai Motor Show.[16] Its wheelbase is 133 millimetres (5.2 in) longer than that of the normal 5 Series saloon[16] and is exclusively sold in China.[16]

Body styles[edit]

Specifications[edit]

Platform[edit]

The G30 5 Series utilises BMW's modular Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform[17] first introduced in the 7 Series (G11).[18] The 5 Series' chassis is made from a mixture of different grades of steel and aluminium.[19] The kerb weight ranges from 1,605–1,989 kg (3,538–4,385 lb), depending on specification.[citation needed]

Much of the 5 Series' body panels are constructed of aluminium, including the bonnet, boot lid, roof and doors.[20]

Suspension and steering[edit]

The 5 Series uses double-wishbone front suspension and 5-link rear suspension[17] while Touring models feature self-levelling rear air suspension.[14] Active anti-roll bars (named "Dynamic Drive") are optional equipment.[21]

All versions of the 5 Series use rack and pinion steering with electric power assistance.[22] "Integral Active Steering" is an option on some models; and combines electromechanical four-wheel steering and a variable-ratio steering rack.[21][23]

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.[24]

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.[21] All other models, including the 520d xDrive, are exclusively available with the ZF automatic transmission.[25][26]

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.[27] 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.[28] 520-545 models with the M Sport trim and M550 models can be fitted with M Performance Parts. These include a splitter, side skirts, rims, carbon fibre mirrors and a carbon fibre spoiler.

At launch, the G30 is available in two equipment lines: Luxury Line and Sport Line, with the M Sport models becoming available in March 2017.[29] The main differences of these lines are color availability (for example, the M Sport models have Carbon Black metallic instead of Jet Black), wheel designs, as well as exterior and interior stylings. The Sport Line has been discontinued during the 2021 facelift.

Luxury Line

In the Luxury Line, the car carries a classic luxury look with high-gloss chrome finish on exterior elements like the Air Breather vent, the radiator grille, the lower air intakes and the side windows surrounds. Inside, leather upholstery is standard, while the instrument panel is trimmed in Sensatec leatherette as standard. The dashboard as well as the door cards are trimmed in "Ridge" fine-wood finish as standard with other wood finishes available as an option. Standard wheels are 18-inch W-spoke or 19-inch multi-spoke wheels.

Sport Line

In the Sport Line, the sporty character of the car is emphasized with high-gloss black finish on the Air Breather vent, the radiator grille slats, the lower air intake and side windows surrounds. Inside, combination cloth/leather upholstery is standard, with leather available as an option. The dashboard and door cards are trimmed in high-gloss Black with Pearl Chrome accents with other trims available as an option. Standard wheels are 18-inch 10 double-spoke or 19-inch V-spoke wheels. This line was discontinued after the June 2020 facelift for model year 2021.

M Sport Package

The M Sport Package has been available for order since March 2017.[29] In addition to the standard color palette (with the exception of Jet Black and Glacier Silver), the M Sport Package includes an exclusive color option: Carbon Black metallic. The front and rear apron styling are unique to the M Sport models, while the suspension is lowered compared the standard setup. Optionally available for the M Sport Package is the M Sport brakes with blue-painted calipers. On the interior, front sport seats in combination cloth/Alcantara is fitted as standard, with leather and comfort front seats available as optional equipment. Another unique feature to the M Sport models is the M Sport multifunction leather steering wheel. Standard wheels include 18-inch 5 double-spoke wheels or 19-inch 10 double-spoke wheels.

Facelift[edit]

BMW 530d Sedan (post-facelift)
BMW 530i Touring (post-facelift)

The G30 5 Series underwent a facelift and reveal in May 2020 (also called Life Cycle Impulse) in BMW Driving Center, South Korea. It was planned to be revealed at the 2020 Busan Motor Show, but was delayed due to its cancellation for the COVID-19 pandemic in South Korea. Exterior changes include redesigned front and rear bumper along with new headlights and taillights and a sharper kidney grille design. The daytime running lights have been redesigned, now having a simplified L shape instead of the octagonal shape of the pre-facelift model, making the headlights slimmer. Adaptive LED headlights (previously a cost option) are fitted as standard with buyers having the option to specify the car with matrix LED or laser headlamps. The front bumper is designed to be more angular with the standard models featuring triangular corner air inlets flanking the center inlet, and the M Sport models getting larger intakes and a U-shaped contour leading into the headlights, similar to the 3 Series.

At the rear, the taillights get the same L-shaped design as the headlights with the former getting 3D lenses and C-Shaped graphics which integrate the main lighting and brake light modules. A twin-pipe exhaust system with trapezoidal outlets is standard on all models with the base models housing them in grey surrounds while the M Sport models get more prominent contours for the exhaust outlets.

Newly added options include 20-inch two-tone aerodynamic wheels and new exterior colours which include Phytonic Blue, Tanzanite Blue, Bernina Grey, and Aventurine Red. The M Sport models also have the option of red brake calipers aside from the standard blue ones. A M Sport Donnington Edition would be available at launch which would be limited to 1,000 units.

On the interior, the basic dashboard design is retained with the biggest highlight being the new touchscreen infotainment system featuring the BMW iDrive 7.0 having over-the-air updates, Personal Assistant Voice Control, integrated Apple Car Play and Android Auto and BMW maps, which is a cloud-based navigation system featuring real-time traffic updates and an improved search function. The infotainment screen measures 10.25-inch as standard but with the BMW Live Cockpit Professional system, measures 12.3-inches. The 5 Series now features the Parking assist system shared with the 3 Series, it has a Reversing Assistant function that enables the car to backtrack where it came from. On top of this, the Parking Assistant Professional incorporates the new Drive Recorder function that can record up to 40 seconds of footage using various cameras.

The engine range has been revamped and features twin-turbocharging for all diesel engines along with optimized direct injection for petrol engines. The hybrid models get a 48-volt system which adds 8 kW (11 hp) to the total engine output.[56][57][58] The M550i gets the same engine from the M850i.

Production[edit]

Production of the G30 occurs at the BMW Group Plant Dingolfing in Germany,[59][60][61] and began in November 2016.[62] All 5 Series long-wheelbase production takes place at BMW Brilliance's factory in the Dadong district of Shenyang, China.[63][64][65]

In addition, from March 2017, contract manufacturer Magna Steyr began building 5 Series saloons at its factory in Graz, Austria.[66][67]

Complete knock down (CKD) production of the 5 Series takes place in the following locations:

In November 2021 the M550i xDrive and 540i xDrive had an issue where the traction control interferes with acceleration fixed by over the air updates.[76]
