Lisbon (portugal), 22. January 2010 – "harry, get the car": in this sentence, which has supposedly never spoken in a derrick episode, many a funer bmw of the first series e12 appears in front of the spiritual eye – preferably in biederen grun or brown tones. With the blackness, it was at the latest with the 2003 5er launched in the bangle design, passing and coarse growth from generation to generation acted in the fact that the "upscale mid-range" has made a quantum leap towards her ancestors from the 1970s and 1980s.
Family at 7 and 5 gt
After the new 7er and the novel 5er gt, the sixth generation of the middle bmw sedan now occurs on the plan: he also carries the new munchner fashion with coarse kidney, a striking light edge in the shoulder line and a striking tail. Under the sheet working more economical engines, the chassis has been completely wrapped and the equipment list has grown around some upper class features. After a first sample in november 2009, we were curious how the newcomer ride. Now we were at 530d and 535i around lisbon and on the early formula 1 racetrack in portuguese estoril.
Almost 4.90 meter car are in front of us – the new one is 4 centimeters long than his process. The proportions have also changed: shortest overhange and forward leave the bavarian carriage a lot more athletic than the outgoing model. His role in the growing portfolio of munchner sedan seems clearly set: for representation animals you take a 7er, inhabited space requirement a 5 gt and a sporty progress the new 5er.
8 centimeters more wheelbase
The fact that the clientel is not to look at the interested parties of multifunctional utility cars is quickly clear in the fund: here, despite 8 centimeters to 2.96 meters grown wheelbase, the space for the knees is not uppat. Head and shoulders of two people have a lot of space in the second row. Even the quite high loading edge animated rather to sink filboxes in the 520-liter packing room, to invite as a heavy luggage. After all, how had the backrests can be flaps, so that it can also be stowed up to a bulky. Who needs more functionality and storage space, is served in the spade summer 2010 with the combination model touring.
