BMW has officially announced the latest BMW 5 Series G30 Facelift, and you can see it in all it’s glory below.

The current G30 BMW 5 Series has sold over 600,000 units worldwide, and the facelifted 5 series will be launched in markets from July 2020 onwards.

Not sure what you think, but the 5 series now looks like a bigger G30 3 Series. Hmmm…
