Cricket icon Sachin Ten­dulkar was the cyno­sure of all eyes as BMW un­veiled its all-new 5-se­ries lux­ury sedan. Big­ger and lighter than the out­go­ing 5-se­ries, the brand new of­fer­ing takes its cues from the 7-se­ries vari­ant and it be­comes a lit­tle tough to dif­fer­en­ti­ate between the two.

The new 5-Se­ries has been pro­duced at the com­pany’s Chen­nai-based man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity and has been launched with three en­gine op­tions in In­dia. Th­ese in­clude a 2.0 litre, four-cylin­der diesel en­gine with 190hp out­put, 3.0 litre, in­line-six diesel with 265hp out­put and a 2.0 litre petrol unit with 252hp out­put. All the engines have been teamed up with an eight-speed au­to­matic gear­box.

In terms of cabin de­sign, the 5-Se­ries is just about as lux­u­ri­ous as it gets with some very cool giz­mos, sim­i­lar to the ones the 7-Se­ries boasts of. They in­clude a ges­ture con­trol for in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, a new dis­play unit, 10” tablets

the rear pas­sen­gers, sun­roof and a lot more. Select vari­ants also fea­ture the re­mote park­ing func­tion.

The all-new 5-Se­ries was launched at an event at the NSCI Dome in Mumbai. The star-stud­ded fea­tured the leg­endary Sachin Ten­dulkar who un­veiled the au­to­mo­bile along with BMW In­dia Pres­i­dent Vikram Pawah.
