The two vehicles share the same platform and both undergo what BMW calls an LCI ( Life Cycle Impulse) or in normal car lingo: a facelift. 

So what can we expect from the mid-life cycle model of the seventh generation mid-size sedan? Well, from the spy shots the new 5 will sport a larger grille, newly-designed headlights and changes to the rear fascia and LED tail lights according to says the 5's new grille moves in line with the 'merged'- design seen on the new 3 Series and updated flagship 7 Series.
