The next generation of the BMW 5-Series has been caught on camera for a second time, ahead of what we believe to be a late 2015 release as a 2016MY.

Seen in these spy pics is a current-gen 5-Series Touring wearing a lot of camouflage and with the chassis of the next-gen model. It will borrow some of the weight-saving measures from the new 7-Series so it should feature carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) in its construction.

As far as design is concerned, chances are the new 5-Series will be influenced by the Vision Connected Drive concept shown back in 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show. Needless to say, this could change since 2016 is still a very long way to go.
