The 2017 BMW 5-Series have been spied showing new details.

Caught undergoing testing in Europe, the latest spy photos reveal the model will have an evolutionary design with a familiar front fascia that adopts a more prominent grille and more traditional angel-eye headlights.

While the exterior styling won't get the heart racing, the interior photos reveal the model will have a digital instrument cluster, a new steering wheel and a freestanding infotainment system.  We can also see wood trim, metallic accents, revised switchgear and a large iDrive controller.

Engine options will mimic the 2016 7-Series, so expect a variety of petrol and diesel options including a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder diesel with 265 PS (195 kW) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque, a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder petrol with 326 PS (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque and a 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 with 450 PS (330 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque.  We can also expect an entry-level model with 1.5-liter three-cylinder diesel engine and a plug-in hybrid variant with a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder petrol engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery.
