Sharing its platform with the recently redesigned 7 Series, the 5 Series' wheelbase has been extended about 3 inches. It now leads its class, BMW says. Up front, the car's signature kidney grilles sit lower and lean more forward. The outgoing 5 Series' eyebrow-laced headlights have been toned down; the eyebrows are still there, but they don't extend as far back toward the front wheels. Adaptive xenon headlights are optional on the 528i and standard elsewhere. The taillights employ three rows of LED lights, and BMW's Adaptive Brake Lights illuminate a larger section under hard braking.

Seventeen-inch alloy wheels go on the 528i; the 535i and 550i get 18s. A Sport Package adds larger wheels and summer performance tires.
