BMW has recently pulled the wraps off the facelifted version of the 5-Series, which should become more appealing to its future customers than the outgoing one.
The BMW 5-Series in the new generation is already available on the market for quite some years so a facelift was needed in order to give the model a fresher look, until the new one will arrive. In terms of design, there isn’t much to talk about in the Sedan and Touring versions, which are now getting some redesigned air intakes, upgraded taillights and some other tweaks. The 5-Series GT has also received an upgrade which is adding a modified front apron, a different rear end and the boot capacity has increased to 500L by 60L.
The 2014 BMW 5-Series facelift is also getting, in standard, features like the xenon headlights, side mirrors with built in indicators and more, while the LED headlights can be had as an option. The models can also be ordered with the Luxury Line and the Modern Line packages, which are joining the current M Sport package. The facelifted 5-Series is now getting a new entry-level version, the 518d, which has a four-cylinder unit under its hood producing a total output of 143 HP (105 kW), available for the Sedan and Touring. There is also a new powerful V8, with 450 HP (330 kW) available for the model. As for the pricing details, the 528i Sedan will start at 50,425 USD, in the U.S, while the 550i will set you back for 64,825 USD. The 5-Series GT will cost at least 60,925 USD.
