Compared to its predecessor, the revamped sixth-generation 5-Series is slightly conventional but maintains the classic BMW fashion of a long hood, tiny overhangs and a coupe like roofline. The car incorporates visual signals from 2 of BMW’s celebrated sedans i.e. the 7-series and the 3 –series. From the bulkier 7-series it has borrowed BMW’s trademark double-Decker grille with attractive LED headlamps skillfully incorporated into the hood and front fenders. The side-body styling seen in the 5-Series that includes a finely shaped design line running through the length of the car up to the door- handle is inspired from the styling of the 3-series. On the rear end, the trunk has been elegantly blended design cues from both the aforementioned cars to display stylish L-shaped LED taillights. The 5-Series has been distinctly styled from its gasoline counterparts by virtue of tailpipes built of matte chromes, animated grille planks, C-pillars bearing active Hybrid 5 lettering and blue-water metallic paint coloring. Optional accessories include premium Streamlined 18-inch light-alloy wheels.
