BMW 5 Series LWB India launch Next Month

BMW is set to launch the all-new long-wheelbase (LWB) version of the iconic 5 Series. The car will go on sale in the Indian market on July 24th, taking direct aim at the established Mercedes-Benz E-Class LWB. Interestingly, India will be only the second country in the world, after China, to receive this exclusive long-wheelbase variant of the 5 Series.
In terms of exterior appearance, the new 5 Series LWB boasts a commanding presence. Going by the available international model, expect the signature BMW kidney grille to be flanked by sleek, new headlamps featuring twin C-shaped LED daytime running lights. A muscular front bumper with silver accents sets a bold tone, while new alloy wheels and wraparound taillights add a touch of modern flair. The "5" badge is proudly displayed on the C-pillar.
Measuring a substantial 5,175mm in length, the LWB variant offers a significant 145mm advantage over the standard 5 Series, with a wheelbase stretched by 110mm. This translates to a luxurious and expansive rear passenger space, perfect for those who prioritize comfort on the go.
While official specifications for the Indian variant are yet to be revealed, we can expect the opulent features seen in the Chinese model to make their way here. Inside, expect to see a 4-zone climate control system, surrounded by the elegance of quilted upholstery and a sophisticated two-tone design scheme. To elevate the entertainment experience to new heights, a massive 31.1-inch display with an astounding 8K resolution might grace the headliner. Other cabin highlights could include a Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system.
The upcoming 5 Series is likely to feature 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and diesel engines, enhanced with a mild-hybrid system for improved efficiency. Across the entire lineup, an 8-speed automatic transmission is likely to be standard.
