2021 BMW 5 Series Redesign Canada – Last month, this was the first time we spotted a camouflaged BMW 5 Series covered with just enough camouflage to suggest a mid-cycle refresh was on the way. It is soon considering the current generation 5 Series debuted just a few years ago for the 2017 model year. But here we are with a camouflaged nose and tail, a “Hybrid Test Vehicle” sticker on the doors, and more of questions only answers. The refreshed BMW 5 Series will receive new design clues as well as the possibility of a more powerful hybrid model.

At present, there is a BMW 5 Series Hybrid, the 530th, which makes a combined power of 248 horsepower (184 kilowatts). It does so by integrating an electric motor with the turbocharged 2.0 liter engine. However, its replacement seen above will probably use a power-controlled version of the BMW 745e xDrive iPerformance. It’s 389 hp (290 kW) from the combined plug-in hybrid powertrain and 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine. In the BMW, likely to be called the 545th, the powertrain will make about 375 hp (279 kW).
The camouflaged ends hide a revised body. At the front, there should be a redesigned front bumper paired with new headlights. The rear should see a less drastic change with a revised design and new taillights. A mystery is whether BMW will expand the red bean grille as it has on other newer recent models. It looks the same size as before, but BMW could change that before the revelation. The interior should also receive a minor update as well with new interior and exterior design changes proliferating across the entire BMW 5 Series.
As we spot prototypes now, the official revelation of the refreshed BMW 5 Series is still probably months away. We may not see the updated model before the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021 as a possible vehicle of the 2021 model year. At this point, the 5 series could start to feel a bit old in the style department with the refreshed version ready for the spotlight.
It’s hard to predict the future, especially in the auto industry. Consumer trends are changing, and the industry is responding just as quickly. As soon as a car manufacturer starts a new vehicle, engineers, product planners and designers move on to the next project. We’ve already looked at what to expect in 2019 and 2020. This list gives an overview of what cars are coming for the 2021 model year.
There is a lot of speculation in this list because even automakers know if the products they are planning will be ready. Three years is a long time for things to change. Some vehicles on this list, like the Lamborghini sedan, are rumors. Others, like the Volvo XC90, are confirmed by the head office. From what we know, here is a preview of the cars to be expected in 2021.
