2020 BMW 5-Series Facelift Shows Subtly Updated Interior For The First Time

This is the first time we get a peek inside the upcoming 2020 5-Series facelift, revealing the incoming changes to the Bavarian executive model’s cabin.

The mid-life update of the G30 5-Series will bring BMW’s latest tech features, including a more modern and wider 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as seen in other models like the 8-Series, as well as a new -and slightly larger- touchscreen display for the infotainment system.

We also notice a set of new control buttons on the steering wheel but other than that, the interior of the facelifted 5-Series looks the same with the current model. That’s not a surprise, given BMW’s strategy of really subtle changes when it comes to the LCI facelifts.

On the outside, the updated 5-Series is set to receive a new fascia that includes slimmer LED headlights, alongside a more pronounced kidney grille and a redesigned bumper. The rear will also receive a similar treatment, featuring new thinner taillights and a re-styled bumper.

The engine range will largely remain the same, with BMW expected to fit a particulate filter to its petrol units and introduce more electrified versions. Rumor has it that the Bavarians are planning to add a more powerful six-cylinder 388 HP plug-in hybrid variant to sit above the existing 530e. BMW has already fitted a 48-volt mild-hybrid system on the four-cylinder diesel 520d models.

As expected, the facelift will also apply to the range-topping M5, which has been spotted during development drives on public roads. From what we’ve seen so far, BMW wants to make the 5-Series look a bit more dynamic and distinctive, as the current model has been criticized for its rather blunt looks.

The facelifted BMW 5-Series is expected to debut sometime in late 2019 or early 2020.

    They miss inspiration… Same interior for years…

    • maxnix

      Called superior ergonomics. No reason to change for mere fashion like MB and Audio.

    Cadillacs newer interiors look better than this lol

  • :/ Yurr

    There is literally stitched leather on all doors and dashboards in the new Cadillacs, do yourself a favor and stop trolling thanks. Matter of fact go sit in the CT5.

    • Pilz

      I wouldn’t call what they use leather it’s poor quality so they might as well not bother. I’ve driven many Cadillacs and was never left feeling anything other than disappointed.

      • :/ Yurr

        Whatever you say??

        • Pilz

          Seeing how I’m not trolling and it’s rather obvious that GM vehicles are garbage running engines that make pitiful power compared to modern DOHC ones vs their push rod trash yes. Maybe if they made an effort and actually churned out a good vehicle, perhaps the C8 (we will see) then maybe I would hate them a little less. No one in their right mind would buy a $100K Escalade over a $100K MB/Audi/BMW/LR

          • :/ Yurr

            No one in there right mind? Well the Escalade sales beg to differ…and I’m sure when the new one comes out it’s still gonna be at the top. BMWs are unreliable, Audi and MB are money pits. My family had all of them. Trust me I know.

          • Pilz

            They’re old, ugly, have a horrible interior, infotainment is a joke etc. BMW’s aren’t unreliable when properly maintained. I’ve owned vehicles from the Germans for years now and never had any mechanical issues

    At least they’re keeping the tactile controls. Sadly that wagon ain’t coming to North America.
