The model features a new grille lifted straight from the Buick LaCrosse and other models. A new horizontal wing connects the Buick emblem to the edges of the grille, and the headlights are much narrower now as well. The slats in the grille appear thinner than the slats on the grille of the old model, and new Avenir modelsfeature a unique 3D mesh grille pattern.

The new M5 has the standard G30-generation 5 Series to thank for its large, narrow headlights that sport fancy three-dimensional LED accents inside. Those lamps now connect to the dual-kidney grilles, unlike the last generation that had headlights inset from the grille and separated by the top portion of the bumper. The lower half of the front end still sports three distinct intake openings, but they're much larger on the 2018 model.

From the side, the new M5 is pretty similar to the old model, but somehow looks sleeker and better proportioned. The characteristic front fender vent returns but is positioned diagonally, with a chrome element that lines up with the character line that runs across the side of the body. Interestingly, the Air Breather vent found on the lower front fender of the standard 5 Series is deleted on the M5.

The air intakes on the lower front fascia are also biggerthan those of its predecessor, giving it a more aggressive look. The headlight clusters feature new LED accent lighting in a C-shaped pattern instead of the "angel eyes" found on past BMW models.

The rear end is an evolution of the previous 5 Series' rump, with wider horizontal taillights and a more sculpted bumper. The M Division's characteristic quad tailpipes again make an appearance on the M5, and the trunklid gets a subtle ducktail spoiler molded into it.

The interior follows BMW's recent styling trends, using a free-standing central screen in place of the old recessed display. The new M5's cabin looks a lot like the interior in the standard 5 Series, but receives red accents on the shift knob and paddle shifters, and unique front sport seats.

What do you think? Does the new M5 advance the sport sedan's styling enough, or does it just deliver more of the same?

<p>Ferrari's new entry-level model is sexier, more emotional</p>Up front you'll immediately notice the aggressive fascia that features Ferrari's corporate headlight design and a wide lower air intake, giving it a more imposing appearance than the California T, which has a less angular front end. From the side, the Portofino has a more muscular profile with its large rear haunches and is in full display with the roof stowed. The Portofino's retractable hardtop also flows with the car's lines to give it a more cohesive look compared to the California T, especially when viewed from the side.
