Details emerge on next BMW 5-Series

Due out in 2016, the upcoming 5-Series will ride on a lightweight and highly flexible new platform that's capable of being revised to also underpin the next 3-Series and 7-Series, according to an Auto Express report.

The weight-saving architecture, in addition to an expanded use of aluminum, carbon fiber reinforced plastic and high-strength steel, will factor heavily in BMW's effort to cut around 200 lbs. from the sedan's curb weight. The reduced mass should serve to improve handling - an area in which the current model has faced criticism - as well as efficiency.
Enabling further mileage gains will be BMW's latest modular engine range, which debuted under the hood of the 2014 MINI Hardtop in three- and four-cylinder forms and will eventually spawn a new straight-six.
