The new BMW 5 Series:
The exterior design of the new BMW 5 Series is headlined by immense presence and exquisite sporting style with large, clean and tautly drawn surfaces. The new bold BMW kidney grille and new slimmer full-LED Adaptive headlights ensure a considerable visual impact from the front. Newly added BMW Laserlight (in M Sport variants) distributes light perfectly up to 650 meters and is unique in this vehicle segment. Distinct wheel arches give a luxurious and dynamic appearance to the car’s side profile. At the rear, the real eye-catcher is the brand-new L shape light graphic that emerges from the taillight in a three-dimensional form. A broad rear with clean horizontal lines emphasises the width.
The new BMW 5 Series presents best-in-class cutting-edge driver assistance systems. Parking Assistant Plus with Surround View Camera makes parking in tight spots easier. Newly introduced Reversing Assistant provides unmatched support in reversing out of a parking spot or through narrow driveways. It keeps a record of the last 50 meters driven and assists by taking over the steering. With the Remote-Control Parking function, a driver can manoeuvre the vehicle into a narrow parking space from outside using the BMW Display Key. The Comfort Access System makes it possible to open all four vehicle doors without using the key. The new intelligent Tyre Pressure Monitoring System warns about a drop in air pressure. BMW EfficientDynamics includes features such as 8-speed Steptronic Sport Automatic Transmission, Auto Start-Stop, Brake-Energy Regeneration, Electronic Power Steering, 50:50 Weight Distribution and ECO PRO mode in Driving Experience Control.
