Despite being longer, wider, and taller, the 2017 model is an astonishing 100kg lighter than its predecessor. This lightweight directly results in improved agility and less fuel consumption.
The car comes with 2 diesel variants and 3 petrol variants, with the options of both rear and all-wheel drive. However, the most excitement is centred around the M550i petrol variant and 520d EfficientDynamics edition. The M550i is a twin turbocharged V8 that pumps out 340kw of power and goes from 0 to 100km/h in just 4 seconds; 0.2 seconds quicker than the current M5. In comparison, the 520d EfficientDynamics editions promises to be extremely fuel efficient; using only 2 litres of fuel per 100km.
The interior of the 2017 BMW 5-Series is equally, if not more, 'high-tech' than the exterior, equipped with an upgraded dashboard monitor that can be controlled through touch, gesture, and even voice command. The new 5-Series will be the first vehicle to incorporate the diamond sound system by Bowers and Wilkins and provide wireless charging for smartphones, as well as the ability to integrate all of its functions.
Safety and style
The safety aspects offered in this vehicle are unparalleled; the car provides steering and lane control assistant, which allows for semi-automated driving and increased safety for the driver. It also has crossroads warning that warns, pre-conditions the braking system, and supports the driver during an emergency brake.
