BMW is all set to assemble its 5 Series long-wheelbase (LWB) in India sometime in the this year. Given the popularity of LWB sedans in India, the move is quite on the expected lines. The new model will take on the likes of the Mercedes E-Class long-wheelbase once launched in India in 2024.

Given the fact that luxury sedans world over is primarily chauffeur-driven, these cars come with added space, legroom, and comfort in the rear seat. Further, the additional features at the back seat such as massaging function, reclining seats, and foldable trays enhance their appeal among the target market. BMW will have to make some significant changes to the existing 5 series platform to bring its LWB version to India though the company has done the same with the 3-Series Gran limo, we think that the company won’t face much difficulty with this exercise.

5-series LWB (aka G68) will feature up to 135mm longer wheelbase than its standard version. It is also expected to come with a longer roof and rear doors in the interest of better ingress and egress convenience. The rear seat will offer temperature control and recline functionality to achieve best combination of luxury and convenience. Further, the panoramic sunroof as well as the massaging seats will also make their way into the LWB version of the 5 series.

In terms of the engine options, customers are likely to receive the hybrid version of BMW’s 3.0-litre petrol engine and a similar capacity diesel powertrain. The hybrid petrol engine is likely to get a max power of up to 340 bhp while the diesel will put out 282 bhp along with 650Nm of rotational force. The 2.0 litre petrol and diesel engines will be offered as well. BMW will equip the 5 Series LWB version with sharp looks, split headlamps, and a kidney grille and is likely to sketch it in a more conventional manner for enticing matured echelons. In terms of sales numbers, 5 Series has only added modestly to the overall sales achieved by BMW in India until now although that could possibly change with the upcoming arrival of this 5 Series LWB. The short wheelbase 5-series will also come someday as a 540i xdrive just like how the rest of the model lineup is getting the same treatment.
