Enter generation seven.

It's completely new, from the body construction all the way to the optional remote-parking feature. This time around, the styling comes across as more self-assured, the engines are punchy yet smooth, and the driving dynamics deliver sufficient sensations for the enthusiast while also providing long-distance comfort for all occupants.

Gesture controls allow the driver to twiddle a finger to raise or lower the sound system's volume, or swipe a hand through the air to take a call or send it to voicemail; and a remote parking feature -- the user can actually be outside the car and maneuver the 5 Series into a parking spot using a smartphone as a controller, then turn off the engine and lock the car.
