Design of new BMW 5-Series

From the outside, the 5-Series takes inspiration from the new 7-Series. Although the changes might look subtle, they go skin deep.

Like the 7-Series, it also gets LED Headlights, optional Adaptive LED lights, adaptive dampers, anti-dazzle high beam that can allow a viewing range of half a kilometre.
