In 2019-2020, the expected appearance of the updated BMW 5. Vehicle D-Class is available since 1972 and is quite popular. For more than forty years it produced more than 1 million copies. According to the plans of the Bavarian automakers fierce competition with “Mercedes” and “Audi” in the segment of mid-size passenger vehicles should continue it BMW 5 Series 2019-2020, in the photo posted on the web, the car captured in camouflage tape on the roads of West Germany during the test runs.
Changing the design concept of style
BMW in May 2019-2020 on a new platform designed OKL, which embodied the best achievements of previous models, and new advances in materials science. Bearing frame made from high-strength steel, aluminum and carbon fiber. Increasing the strength of a positive impact on the security and durability of the structure. The platform provides a longitudinal position of the engine and the ability to complete and posterior-wheel drive transmission. The models in the sedan factory index assigned G30, wagon – G31 and “Gran Turismo” (hatchback) – G32.
Corporate identity has changed. Expressive line technical artist Chris Bangle gone. Now, the external appearance of the architecture defines the chief designer Karim Habib. The basis for the creation of exterior served as the concept Gran Lusso Coupe – the joint brainchild of the designers of the Bavarian automaker and artists studio Pininfarina. In the photo of the new model can be seen that due to the radical renewal of the frontal part of BMW in May 2019-2020 is a bit like soplatformennye crossovers. Expanded border radiator grille. Increased slope of the windscreen. The rear window was less sloping. Increased bending of the roof arch. All the lines of the body in addition to the aesthetic features are subject to the problem of reducing aerodynamic drag. These measures have led to the fact that the drag coefficient has been reduced to 0.24 Cx. To increase the efficiency of flow of air flows at high speed, there are special movable shutters. Seventh Generation will acquire elements of the laser beam optics. LED rear lights completely.
interior architecture and layout substantially reworked. The photo dashboard BMW May 2019-2020 visible digital devices, replacing the analogue display. Colour illumination of devices, and keys on the front panel can be changed. Above the center console is placed 8.2-inch touch screen. The screen takes the driver’s voice, gestures and handwriting, if the surface gently with your finger to draw letters. IDrive multimedia system allows you to customize the functions of the car just as the implemented configuration of the smartphone.
Intelligent equipment worthy of the aircraft. Only the list of electronic systems and functions of the onboard processor will take a few dozen lines. Intelligent electronics without the driver can drive the car in a straight line at a given speed, slow down, speed up, to make a permutation in the series and park. Among the new products we can mention the night vision system, an improved system of autonomous driving, three-zone climate control system and opening the trunk lid from the movement of foot under the bumper. rear seat backrest is adjustable for angle. Improved suspension and extremely effective noise reduction eliminates all extraneous sounds in the cabin.
The car was a little bit wider and 110 kg in weight won. Other parameters BMW 5 Series 2019-2020 release correspond to the previous model:
- Overall length – 5005 mm;
- width – 1932 mm;
- Height – 1 560 mm;
- base – 3070 mm;
- ground clearance – 145 mm;
- curb weight sedan – 1 560 kg, all-wheel drive hatchback – 1 990 kg.
Standard equipment is equipped with wheels with 17-inch wheels.
Powertrains for the BMW 5 Series in 2019-2020 got from the previous model. At the same time, engineers thoroughly worked over their modernization, the purpose of which was to increase the power and reduce fuel consumption. Engines equipped with a valve control system Valvetronic. All engines meet the Euro 6 emission standard. The combined cycle, depending on the volume flow rate of 6 to 7 liters. The range of turbine base is as follows:
- 4-cylinder gasoline engine is a 2 liter capacity – 185 liters. . With torque – 270 Nm;
- 4-cylinder gasoline engine is a 2 liter capacity – 245 liters. . With torque – 350 Nm;
- bi-turbo 6-cylinder petrol engine with 3 liter capacity – 350 liters. . With torque – 550 Nm;
- Biturbo V-shaped 8-cylinder petrol engine of 4.4 liter capacity – 450 liters. . With torque – 650 Nm;
- 4-cylinder diesel engine of 2 liter capacity – 190 liters. . With torque – 295 Nm;
- bi-turbo 4-cylinder diesel engine of 2 liter capacity – 220 liters. . With torque – 450 Nm;
- bi-turbo 6-cylinder diesel engine with 3 liter capacity – 381 liters. with torque -. 640 Nm.
With the most powerful engine accelerates the car up to a hundred kilometers in 4.7 seconds. For the top-end version of the X-Drive is preparing a V-shaped eight-cylinder engine capacity of 625 liters. s., equipped with four turbines. For adherents of “green” versions of the automaker polutoralitrovye developed 3-cylinder engine rated at “only” 150 hp. from. Fuel consumption will be only 4 liters. Diverse and choice of transmissions: 6-speed Getrag Mechanics, 7, 8 and 9-speed automatic. By default, all-wheel drive vehicles for the distribution of torque meets electronics.
A separate conversation deserves a hybrid engine. The automaker announced that the BMW 5 Series in 2019-2020 will receive an innovative propulsion system. In an internal combustion engine performs the twin-turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine with 260 hp. s., an electric motor with liquid cooling system develops 95 l. from. Lithium-ion battery is located under the rear seat. Her charge is enough to drive 30 kilometers at a speed of 120 km / h. Charging it both from a household power socket (on the left front fender arranged a special hatch in which the connector), and on-board generator when braking in regenerative mode. If set to route to the navigation system, the processor will determine the sites of road, which will be used by the electric motor or internal combustion engine, and in what place can be recharged.
