2018 BMW 5-Series (G30) to star in Detroit amid massive sales slump

BMW will use the 2017 Detroit Motor Show stage as the launch platform for the new 5-Series (G30) with the 540i, 530e iPerformance and M550 xDrive on show.


The new 5-Series, which was unveiled in October, will be a vitally important model for the brand, as it is going through a sales slump despite a strong market.

Through to the end of November, sales are down 10 percent on 2015, but incentives have risen, with cash on the hood jumping up 25 percent in November alone.

The BMW 5-Series goes on sale in spring 2017 in the US. Pricing and specifications will be released closer to the launch.
