BMW will be introducing these new engines in the Indian car market as well. These new engines will make the difference as the new-generation 5 Series and 7 Series are lighter because of usage of aluminium and other alloys that make this new chassis much lighter than its predecessor.The engines that will be making it to India will be the 1.5-litre three cylinder petrol and diesel ones.The 5 Series will be making its way into India sometime in 2017. It will be making its debut in the European market, sometime next year.
