Its mission statement: setting new standards. The BMW 5 Series is the embodiment of the modern business sedan. Thanks to its dynamic and simultaneously elegant appearance, it convincingly meets the expectations that are placed today on a vehicle of its class: aesthetic athleticism and driving pleasure with state-of-the-art technology.
Even when standing still, the BMW 5 Series creates a powerful impression. In the seventh generation of the sportiest business sedan, kidney grilles and headlights are directly linked for the first time ever. The low roof line sloping to the rear lends the muscular body an elegant coupé-like silhouette. And the broad rear emphasizes the high performance capacity of the BMW 5 Series. It took more than four decades of engineering to arrive at this iteration of the BMW 5 Series clearly it was worth every minute.
DRIVER ORIENTED COCKPIT
Built for demanding drivers. With intuitive instruments, advanced technology, and a comfortable cabin. Selected materials and a quality of finish defined by meticulous precision underline the premium ambience. The centre console is slightly angled toward the driver for the most ergonomic use possible but also allows the front passenger to comfortably reach all of the functions located there. Opulent options for passenger comfort make the ride as comfortable as the drive.
Where dynamics are concerned, the BMW 5 Series shifts the boundaries. Powerful engines impressively transmit its sporty exterior to the road. Thanks to more lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra modern aluminium alloys, the BMW 5 Series weighs in at up to 100 kg less than its predecessor. The intelligent lightweight construction also ensures a balanced weight distribution between front and rear axle as well as a lower centre of gravity. The result is highly dynamic driving characteristics.
