Performance sedans are entering the supercar realm.
A new report has emerged from Germany regarding the 2016 BMW 5 Series that we spied this summer testing in wagon guise. According to Autobild, the next-generation 5er will boast semi-automatic driving technology, a completely revamped interior using supreme “surface quality and material appearance,” a revised iDrive controller and upgraded voice commands. However, like us, you’re probably most anxious to hear about what’s planned under the luxury sedan's hood.
The most popular powerplant for the next 5 Series will likely be a 3.0-liter six-cylinder with around 350 hp, while a new M5 is expected to come with 626 horsepower and optional all-wheel drive. With Cadillac working on the twin-turbo V8-powered CTS-V, it looks like BMW is ready to hit back with an event hotter performance sedan.
