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.

Kia also changed up the foglights by placing them higher near the headlights. The fourth-generation model has a flatter face than its predecessor,which features a more bug-eyed look.

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?

Refreshing or Revolting: 2018 Acura RLX .
<p>From too boring to too bold?</p>The 2018 Acura RLX receives the diamond pentagon grille we first saw on the 2016 Precision concept, before appearing on the 2017 MDX. The grille is larger than the shield or "beak" design of the pre-refresh RLX, but it features about as much chrome as before. The headlights sport an updated take on the "Jewel Eye" LED headlight theme, and the housing shape draws inspiration from both the Precision concept and the NSX sports car. The hood is also more sculpted, featuring bulging curves at the sides.
