The new BMW 5 Series Sedan.

Posted on 12. Oct, 2016 by in BMW Canada

The new BMW 5 Series Sedan therefore has all a collection it needs to
continue a conspicuous success accessible by a predecessors; more
than 7.6 million BMW 5 Series cars were sole opposite a initial six
generations. “The seventh era of a BMW 5 Series points the
approach into a future, as we have tangible it with a NUMBER ONE
NEXT strategy. We see technological leadership, emotionally rich
products and digitalisation as essential factors in achieving success.
With a enlargement of a indication portfolio in a large-vehicle
classes, we are gratifying a wishes of many customers. I’m in no
doubt that a new BMW 5 Series will set new benchmarks
technologically, though also have outrageous romantic appeal. It stays the
summary of a business sedan,” says Harald Krüger, Chairman of the
Board of Management during BMW AG.

Superior pushing pleasure and unrivalled aerodynamics.

Rigorous focus of a BMW EfficientLightweight
lightweight pattern concept, with increasing use of aluminium and
high-strength steels, reduces a weight of a 5 Series Sedan by up
to 100 kilograms from that of a predecessor. The newly designed
chassis, a low centre of gravity, BMW’s hallmark even weight
placement and a lightweight physique charity well-developed torsional
rigidity mix a splendidly energetic pushing knowledge with the
long-distance comfort for that a BMW 5 Series is renowned. Various
framework options such as Integral Active Steering, that can now be
teamed with xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive, supplement serve talents to
a dynamics-focused altogether package designed to safeguard a BMW 5 Series
once again stands during a tip of a class. The drag fellow of the
new, 4,935 millimetre-long BMW 5 Series Sedan (Cd = 0.22 during a most
efficient) sets a benchmark in a class.

The subsequent step to programmed driving.

A resources of assistance systems are on palm in a new
BMW 5 Series to offer a motorist unbeatable support – not usually at
vicious moments though also in rebate perfectionist situations during a wheel,
such as trade jams, slow-moving trade and unchanging stretches of
motorway. To this end, it is propitious as customary with a stereo camera,
that teams adult with discretionary radar and ultrasound sensors to monitor
a area around a car. New facilities in a BMW 5 Series alongside
a semblance assist and Crossing trade warning are a Lane Change
Assistant and Lane gripping partner with active side collision
protection. The latter keeps an eye on a line markings and a area
around a car, and actively helps a motorist to equivocate looming
collisions by requesting visual steering inputs.

The BMW 5 Series also takes another step towards programmed driving
with extended functions for a discretionary Active Cruise Control (ACC)
complement and Steering and Lane gripping assistant. These embody adoption
of speed restrictions, that a discretionary Intelligent Speed Assist
communicates to a journey control complement (the motorist can adjust this
figure by +/– 15 km/h / 9 mph). From rest to 210 km/h (130 mph), the
automobile can soothe a motorist of acceleration, braking and steering
duties, as desired. The intelligent Auto Start Stop duty now
adjusts a responses to a track and trade conditions and
therefore offers even incomparable pushing comfort.

Intuitive usability and endless comfort.

With even incomparable user-friendliness as a goal, a new BMW 5
Series is versed with a latest-generation iDrive system. In top
specification, it displays navigation, write and entertainment
features, and automobile functions, on a high-resolution 10.25-inch
screen. The complement can be operated regulating a iDrive Controller, by
voice authority or gestures, or by touching a arrangement controls
directly, as a motorist wishes. The large, tile-style panels can be
organised as preferred and uncover a calm of a underlying menus in
constantly updated form. The latest-generation full-colour BMW Head-Up
Display has a projection aspect that is 70 per cent incomparable than
before and displays trade signs, write listings, radio stations,
song tracks, navigation instructions and warnings from a assistance systems.

Maximising a levels of on-board comfort are extended storage
options, incomparable legroom for rear-seat passengers and comfort seats
with massage function, not to discuss innovative chair operation using
hold sensors and four-zone meridian control finish with ionisation
and watchful atmosphere fragrancing. Special Synergy Thermoacoustic Capsule
(SYNTAK) engine encapsulation technology, a acoustic glazing for the
windscreen and a acoustic superstar pierce about another noticeable
rebate in sound levels inside a car. All headlight variants
specified for a BMW 5 Series Sedan come as customary with LED
technology. Available as an choice are Adaptive LED Headlights with
non-static light placement including adaptive devious lights and
BMW Selective Beam anti-dazzle high lamp with a operation of adult to 500 metres.

Advanced link-up of man, appurtenance and environment.

The new BMW 5 Series also offers a constrained tender in
terms of connectivity. Extensive BMW ConnectedDrive facilities are
assimilated by new services that intemperate business travellers with extra
comfort and save them time. These embody a new ParkNow technology
for digital parking space reservation and payment, a On-Street
Parking Information intelligent parking space hunt duty and the
discretionary Parking Assistant, that detects dull spots and parks the
automobile automatically. Plus, a Microsoft Exchange use now
enables Microsoft Office 365 users to sync emails, calendar entries
and contacts and revise them inside their car. Meanwhile, a optional
Remote Parking complement allows a BMW 5 Series Sedan to be manoeuvred
into even a tightest parking spaces remotely regulating a automobile key. And
smartphone formation has been serve softened – from Apple CarPlay
(which, in a initial for a carmaker, has been incorporated fully
wirelessly), to preliminary phone charging and a WiFi hotspot for up
to 10 devices.

Personalised calm by BMW Connected Onboard.

BMW Connected, a personal digital mobility partner from
BMW, has been accessible in Europe given Jul 2016. The next
growth theatre of a system, finish with additional services, is
set to be introduced with a new BMW 5 Series. BMW Connected Onboard
gives drivers an overview of their mobility-related information.
Relevant calm such as a arriving navigation destinations and
estimated attainment time accessible in their personal mobility bulletin are
eliminated seamlessly into a automobile from their smartphone and
displayed on a personalised screen. Remote 3D View allows drivers to
call adult three-dimensional views of a area around their automobile on their
smartphone while on a move. And that means they need never lose
steer of their car.

BMW 530i and BMW 540i: a new petrol engines.

All a engines in a 5 Series Sedan choice go to the
newly developed, modular BMW EfficientDynamics family of energy units.
BMW TwinPower Turbo record imbues all a members of a family
with superb opening total with well-developed efficiency. Two
diesel engines and dual petrol variants will be accessible from launch,
operative in tandem with possibly rear-wheel expostulate or BMW xDrive
intelligent all-wheel drive.

The new two-litre four-cylinder in-line engine in a BMW 530i
develops rise torque of 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) and limit outlay of
185 kW/252 hp. Its fuel expenditure in a total cycle comes in at
5.4 litres/100 km (52.3 mpg imp)*, that means CO2 emissions of
126 g/km – down some-more than 11 per cent on a predecessor’s figures.
The BMW 530i accelerates from 0 ‑ 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.2 seconds on
a approach to a tip speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

The flagship engine during launch will be a 250 kW/340 hp section under
a carp of a new BMW 540i. This three-litre straight-six produces
torque of 450 Nm (332 lb-ft). Despite a additional outlay and sharper
energetic edge, normal fuel expenditure stands during usually 6.5 l/100 km
(43.5 mpg imp) and CO2 emissions are kept to usually 150 g/km*. In xDrive
guise, a BMW 540i powers from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in a small 4.8 seconds.

BMW 520d and BMW 530d: a new diesel engines.

The four-cylinder diesel engine powering a BMW 520d
develops 140 kW/190 hp and rise torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). Fuel
expenditure and CO2 emissions are 4.1 l/100 km (68.9 mpg imp)* and
108 g/km with a primer gearbox specified or 4.0 l/100 km (70.6 mpg
imp)* and 107 g/km with a eight-speed Steptronic transmission. The

The new BMW 530d further does a good line in dynamics and
efficiency. Producing 195 kW/265 hp and rise torque of 620 Nm (457
lb-ft), a six-cylinder in-line section is clearly higher to the
homogeneous indication in a effusive range. And nonetheless a BMW 530d also
creates do with normal fuel expenditure of 4.5 l/100 km (62.8 mpg imp)*
and CO2 emissions of 118 g/km – an approximately 13 per cent
alleviation on a predecessor. The new BMW 530d races from 0 – 100
km/h (62 mph) in usually 5.7 seconds, and on to an electronically
governed 250 km/h (155 mph).

The CO2 champion, a plug-in hybrid and a eight-cylinder
sports star.

hybrid expostulate system, in a form of a BMW 530e iPerformance. The
multiple of a BMW eDrive electric expostulate judgment and a
four-cylinder petrol engine produces intensely low CO2 emissions of
usually 46 g/km (2.0 l/100 km)*. System outlay is 185 kW/252 hp.

In Mar 2017 a BMW M550i xDrive will take over as a sporting
prominence of a new BMW 5 Series range, for a time being during least.
Its V8 engine – building 340 kW/462 hp and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of
torque – impresses not usually with a conspicuous opening though also
when it comes to potency (fuel consumption, combined: 8.9 l/100 km
[31.7 mpg imp], CO2 emissions 204 g/km*). The BMW M550i xDrive
dispatches a 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) scurry in 4.0 seconds.
