Now more dynamic, sporty and innovative, this leading vehicle in its segment continues the remarkable success of its predecessors. “The seventh generation of the all new BMW 5 Series points the way into the future, as we have defined it with our NUMBER ONE > NEXT strategy. We see technological leadership, emotionally rich products, and digitalisation as essential factors to achieve success.  With the expansion of our model portfolio in the large-vehicle classes, we are satisfying the wishes of many customers.  I’m positive that the all new BMW 5 Series will set new benchmarks technologically, but also have huge emotional appeal.  It remains the epitome of the business sedan,” says Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management at BMW AG.

Aerodynamic Body

 Cleverly contoured volumes and subtle edges create an impression with presence and sporting appeal in abundance. The all-new BMW 5 Series serves up its blend of elegance, sportiness and spaciousness in an even more sophisticated form.

It’s now 100 kgs lighter thanks to BMW EfficientLightweight design as well as the generous use of aluminium and high-strength steel. Even though it is just shy of 5 metres long, it sits lower on the ground giving it a sportier look.  With Integral Active Steering and a redesigned chassis that allows for an even weight distribution, providing an exceptional driving experience which BMW is renowned for.

Automated Driving and Drive Modes

 Numerous assistance systems are available in the all new BMW 5 Series for both critical (emergency stop) as well as in less demanding situations (long stretches, slow-moving traffic). Features such as Crossing Traffic and Lane Assist actively supports the driver to avoid hazards and potential accidents.  Standard stereo camera paired up with optional radar and ultrasound sensors monitor the space around the vehicle.


Optional Park Assist parks the car automatically while you are seated in the driver’s seat. While the optional Remote Parking system, as the name says, allows you to park the vehicle in a tight parking spot from outside the vehicle by simply using the display key.


Three driving modes are available – Sport, Comfort and Eco Pro. The Sport mode makes the vehicle more agile.  The Comfort mode as the name says, provides a more relaxed driving experience which is perfect for long-distance driving.  And the Eco Pro mode focusses on greater efficiency.


Now BMW offers a combination of these modes – the optional Adaptive mode. In this mode, the system automatically adapts to your driving style taking into consideration steering wheel movement, speed and acceleration.  A remarkable innovation of the Adaptive mode is that it interacts with the on-board navigation system.  The chassis control proactively and intuitively reacts to the bends and curves as well as surface of the road.  It adjusts to the driving situation so you gain the perfect balance between Comfort and Sport mode.
