The teaser also hits at a similar dashboard layout to the flagship 7 Series. The highlight is a large, free-standing touchscreen equipped with BMW's cutting-edge iDrive 8.5 operating system.

BMW earlier demonstrated that the new 5 Series will be offered with enhanced driver assist capabilities. Notably, the "highway assistant" system enables the vehicle to assume control and steering inputs at speeds up to 130 km/h, providing a seamless driving experience. Additionally, lane change assist will be activated using eye movement, and with a simple glance at the exterior mirror, the car will initiate the lane change process, including steering and speed adjustments.

Production of the new 5 Series is scheduled to commence in the coming months at BMW Group's renowned Dingolfing plant in Bavaria, Germany. BMW aims to launch the updated sedan globally by October 2023. Consequently, enthusiasts in India can expect the arrival of the new 5 Series as early as mid-2024, following its debut in international markets. In the Indian market, BMW currently offers the 5 Series in two trims, the 520d M Sport and 530i M Sport, priced between Rs 65.90 lakh and Rs 68.90 lakh (ex-showroom).
