2022 BMW 5-Series Updated to Look Like Latest 3-Series
BMWs are leaking like water through a sieve these days, and leaked photos of the new 2022 2-Series coupe and the new iX3 crossover hit the internet this week. And now BMW has had yet another new model slip out before its official debut: the 2022 5-Series. That's according to a post on the BMW fan forum Bimmerpost.
Gone from the car's design is any hint of four circular headlights. Instead, the model adopts "double hockey stick" daytime running lights. Keep in mind, this is a leak of the European-spec car, which means there might be some changes that separate this model from the North American-spec model. One thing that likely won't change is the size of the updated 5's grille. That's good because unlike other Bimmers, the grille of the facelifted 5-Series looks about the same size as the one tacked onto the current car. Maybe BMW is listening to our complaints.
The new 5-er also has refreshed taillights, and presumably gets updates to its cabin, as well. An update to the infotainment setup, some new tech, and perhaps powertrain and suspension updates are all on the table for the mid-size BMW sedan. We won't know for sure until BMW takes the wraps off in full, though. Until then you can take a look at these photos and decide for yourself if you like the car's new looks or not.
