BMW 5 Series
Driving dynamics & efficiency of the all-new BMW 5 SeriesWhere dynamics are concerned, the BMW 5 Series shifts the boundaries. Powerful engines impressively transmit its sporty exterior to the road. Yet apart from power, the BMW 5 Series is not only able to offer power but also brains. This is because the progressive technologies of tomorrow which enable it to exploit its dynamics to the full make it a true hero. BMW 530i Luxury: Fuel consumption in km/l (combined): 18.2 CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 126
DRIVING EXPERIENCE CONTROL.
The Driving Experience Control offers the driver the choice between the standard COMFORT mode, ECO PRO Mode, geared towards efficiency, and SPORT mode, which enables even more dynamic driving. The new interactive function ADAPTIVE Mode* continuously adjusts the Dynamic Damper Control*, the steering and the Steptronic transmission to suit the current driving situation. * Available only for BMW 530i M Sport.
DEVELOPED TO BE BETTER.
The BMW 5 Series is not satisfied with mediocrity. It is therefore only logical that it should be the absolute champion in its class in terms of acceleration and CO2 emissions. And also because of the Intelligent Start Stop function included for the first time. It only switches the engine off when the stop is expected to last for a certain period of time.
SAVE WEIGHT. GAIN DYNAMISM.
Thanks to more lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra modern aluminium alloys, the BMW 5 Series of the seventh generation weighs in at up to 100 kilograms 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.
GUIDING THE AIR. INCREASING AGILITY.
In the BMW 5 Series, the BMW EfficientDynamics package of technologies is visible on a distinctive design icon: the kidney grille. When demand for cooling air is low, an air valve inside the Active Air Stream kidney grille remains closed, leading to ideal cd values as low as 0.22, which are unique in this class.
