Extended Wheelbase BMW 5 Series to Debut at Beijing Auto Show


While the trend for luxury cars in Europe and North America seems to be heading towards smaller vehicles, thatís not the case in China. The Chinese think that bigger is better and the Germans certainly arenít going to argue with them. Case in point: the scheduled debut of the extended wheelbase BMW 5 Series at the Beijing Auto Show later this month.

Developed in Germany but set to be manufactured in Shenyang, China specifically for the Chinese market, weíre surprised at how the 5 Series Li looks so well proportioned. For those who donít know, this isnít the first extended-wheelbase 5 Series either, with BMW offering the previous gen model in a limo-version.

The wheelbase is 5.5-inches longer than the standard model, giving the 5 Series Li a total length of 198-inches and a wheelbase of 122.4-inches. BMW will offer the extended wheelbase 5 Series as a 523Li, powered by a 204-hp 2.5-liter inline-six; a 528Li, powered by a 258-hp 3.0-liter inline-six and a range-topping 535Li with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six making 306-hp.
