The facelifted BMW 5 Series is expected to go on sale in Australia in late 2020 or early 2021.

Although it will share components and likely the same powertrain options as the latest G20 3 Series, BMW points out that the 2021 4 Series will offer a more dynamic set of proportions, aerodynamics properties, and weight distribution compared with the 3 Series.

BMW promises the 4 Series Coupe's chassis technology is a more individual composition than ever before, with the chassis set-up focused on "exhilarating driving performance".

Thankfully, the kidney grille size remains unchanged but gets new chrome elements offering a premium look.

Yes, BMW will introduce the facelifted 5-Series in India soon after its global debut but it doesn't seem like happening this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The BMW 5 Series facelift features more angular bumper and lower air intakes, too.

At the rear, the new BMW 5 Series has a revised bumper with some resurfacing on the outer ends, but that's not an easily visible change. At the rear there are no changes except for the new LED work on the tail lights to match the sleek headlights.

The auto seen in these images is believed to be the plug-in hybrid version with the M Sport Package. Also note the charging port positioned on the front fender. The 530e badge denotes a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine assisted by an electric motor placed inside an 8-speed automatic transmission.
