BMW's all-new 2017 5-Series mid-size sedan will sticker for about $1,000 more than its predecessor, the German automaker announced today.
The 5-Series is destined for showrooms just before Valentine's Day—so you've still got some time to save up if chocolates simply aren't going to be enough this year.

That extra grand over the outgoing 2016 model nets you not only an all-new design, but also more features. Newly-standard features for the 530i, which replaces the 528i, include LED headlamps, 18-inch alloy wheels, and sports seats.
BMW says that the M550i xDrive and its plug-in hybrid sibling, the 530e, will follow.
The latest 5-Series comes in more than 100 pounds lighter than its predecessor, despite having more standard equipment. New 4- and 6-cylinder engines will power the 530i and 540i variants at launch. Enthusiasts, however, should note that a manual transmission that was available in certain configurations of the outgoing 5 has been dropped entirely from the spec sheet.
