After numerous spy photos and a few leaks, the 2021 BMW 5 Series finally showed its face. Although BMW actually introduced the make-up version of the 7th generation 5 Series, we can say that the innovations made have prevented a make-up operation.
The 5 Series with makeup draws attention with its exterior design
The most obvious changes in the exterior design of the 2021 BMW 5 Series are the new grille and the standard LED headlights. As expected, the grids of the facelifted 5 Series have been slightly longer and wider than the 7th generation 5 Series. In addition, the vertical plates in the grille were made more prominent and were surrounded by a one-piece chrome material.
Changes were made to the headlights similar to his brother 3 Series. A new design has been achieved with L-shaped daytime running lights and black indicators on the outer edges. LED headlights come as standard in the 5 Series with make-up. In addition, BMW’s super bright Laserlight gets many new features, including the high beam option.
When we look at the rear design, new trapezoidal exhaust pipes and L-shaped stop design are among the outstanding details. As with the 3 Series, we encounter the M Sport Package with new front and rear bumpers, larger front air intakes and a different rear diffuser.
2021 BMW 5 Series interior design
When we take a look inside the facelift 5 Series, we come across the seventh version of BMW’s iDrive infotainment system, with a 10.3 inch as an option or a 12.3 inch central display as an option.
