2020 BMW 5-Series G30 Rendered With Accurately Restyled Front End

BMW’s updated G30 5-Series model is currently undergoing tests, with prototypes spotted wearing camouflage to hide restyled front and rear end designs.

Fortunately for us, it was pretty easy to decipher what the Bavarian automaker has in store for the 5er as far as the front fascia is concerned. We’re dealing with a new bumper, new headlights and a larger grille, t wehough thankfully not too large.

These updates have now been brought to life, so to speak, digitally, as these renderings from Kolesa show us what a 5-Series sedan model would look like with less bulkier headlights, new grille and a new taillight design, although the latter remains questionable.

The new headlights remind us a little bit of the 3-Series’ lighting units and are no longer horizontally teardrop-shaped, while the grille should be somewhere between the current one and the one on the updated 7-Series in terms of size.

At the rear, the render features a more pronounced bottom section for each taillight, something that may or may not happen – recently spotted prototypes might be wearing old taillights in an attempt to throw us off their scent. However, if that’s not the case, then the shape of the taillights could remain unchanged, leaving room for new graphics and nothing else.

Aside from a rumored 545e electrified variant, the 2020 5-Series should keep its current range of petrol and diesel options, possibly featuring small revisions for improved fuel efficiency.

As for on-board tech, we should see BMW’s latest software powering a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, as well as a 10.25-inch infotainment display, the same one from the new 8-Series.

We should find out more about the facelifted 5er closer to its reveal date, which could be either in late 2019 or sometime next year.

    You know it’s funny I can’t remember what the previous seven series looks like but I definitely can’t remember what the refreshed seven series looks like so it’s probably good that these models have been re-designed with larger grills and more impact all front end

    • Mike anonymous

      Whilst I do agree on many points, I do want to say that; Just as important as being remembered, is what you are (or in this case, a vehicle is) remembered for.

      I suppose we will have to see going forwards, as only time will be able to tell.

    • Dennis James

      Strange, I can perfectly remember the Bangle-era 7-series, especially the latest ones which were pretty good looking, while I can’t remember the new 7-series at all, I can’t picture it in my mind, I only recognize one because of its size.

  • Rivaldo

    Much better than 7 series.

  • Ermal Morina

    the front end looks way to much like the new 3 series, the back to much of a lexus. idk ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • alexxx

    Much much better…

  • Bo Hanan

    It got the “Lexus” treatment too.

    2000s’ & Early 2010s’ BMW Design Was A Period In Time I Personally Will Always Hold Dear.
    Simple, Beautiful, & Unique, (and in some respects timeless). The last vehicles of this generation are what’s shown below. Not to say BMW of today is bad at all, but it is certainly different (for better or worse, whatever your opinion may be).



    • DMJ

      That 1-Series is just horrible, one of the worst BMW designs of all time.

  • Six_Tymes

    I like it, just the grille is slightly too big. I know they are going for bigger grilles across the line, but I think they are doing so when grille design should be shrinking, not going larger than it was. the fake plastic top section of the larger grilles really makes bmw look cheap.

  • Dennis James

    Looks almost identical to the new 3-series. BMW is copying Mercedes by making its cars almost identical, only differing in size.
