BMW to showcase latest models at Geneva show

GENEVA, February 2, 2017

BMW, a leading automobile company, will showcase highlights from its current range of models as well as the latest advances in the field of sustainable mobility with all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, next month.

The new-generation BMW 5 Series Touring will make its world debut at the 87th edition of this renowned motor show to be held from March 9 to 19, at the Palexpo convention centre, Geneva, Switzerland.

Also set to be unveiled to the public for the first time at the event is the new BMW 4 Series, fresh from a round of design, chassis, interior ambience and equipment enhancements, said a statement from BMW.

Another exclusive version of the ground-breaking BMW i8 plug-in-hybrid sports car will also be celebrating its world premiere, as visitors to the show are introduced to the BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Black Edition, it said.

The new version of the BMW 5 Series Touring, which has traditionally enjoyed particular success in European car markets, raises the model’s signature combination of driving pleasure, aesthetic appeal, innovation and intelligent functionality to an even higher level.

With its attractively balanced proportions and distinctive vehicle geometry, the body design exudes both sporting performance and versatility.

Compared with the outgoing model, the new BMW 5 Series Touring has slightly larger exterior dimensions and provides noticeably more space for passengers and luggage. The acoustic experience and levels of on-board comfort for rear-seat passengers have both been optimised.

The new BMW 5 Series Touring’s load compartment can hold 570 litres of gear – 10 litres more than its predecessor offered. Luggage space can be extended up to 1,700 litres (an additional 30 litres), if required.

When sales of the new BMW 5 Series Touring commence in June 2017, there will be four engines from the BMW Group’s latest generation of power units to choose from. Two of these will be combined with the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system from the outset. Other variants will follow during the course of the year, teaming up with conventional rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Additionally, the new BMW 4 Series will possess redesigned air intakes and rear aprons, and the now standard LED headlights and LED rear lights emphasise the exclusive and sporty look of the new BMW 4 Series Coupe, new BMW 4 Series Convertible and new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.

New electroplated elements, chrome applications and a high-gloss black finish for the centre console add extra touches of class to the interior.

Redesigned full-LED rear lights and premium additions to the interior enhance the looks of the BMW M4 Coupe and BMW M4 Convertible. Both of these high-performance sports cars also come with the new version of the Navigation system Professional and the latest BMW ConnectedDrive Services, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
