Only a few hours back, we reported that popular German premium car maker BMW is almost done with the development of the BMW 5 Series facelift that might be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show/New York Motor Show.
Now, a BMW 5 Series facelift test mule has been spotted testing on Chinese roads. The BMW 5 Series LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) is a part of BMW’s plan to launch the facelift versions of all its models before introducing the next generation vehicles.
The BMW 5 Series LCI test mule that has been spotted wore not even the slightest of camouflage and reveals all the changes made to the executive sedan.
The updated car gets a new front fascia that sports a revised bumper with bigger fog lamps. In profile, the car remains unchanged but BMW might launch the 5 Series LCI with a set of new alloy wheels. At the rear, the car gets a new bumper and quadrilateral dual exhaust tips that replace the circular tips on the current car.
On the inside, the car is expected to get a slightly updated dashboard, an upholstery change and a touchscreen display from the 7 Series. The engine options for the 5 Series LCI are likely to be carried over from the current model and this would mean that the car will continue to be powered by a range of 4 and 6 cylinder petrol and diesel motors.
Chinese media says that the updated sedan is likely to debut at the Shanghai Auto Show which will be held in late April.
