The BMW 5 Series Saloon

INNOVATION AS STANDARD.

TECHNOLOGY IN THE BMW 5 SERIES.


Every new BMW pushes at the frontiers of technology and innovation. The BMW 5 Series combines state-of-the-art driving assistance systems with an unmatched degree of connectivity and convenience. State of the art technology is deployed in the design and construction of the BMW 5 Series too, with extensive use of the most modern aluminium alloys to create an experience that re-defines the capabilities of this class of vehicle.

BMW 5 Series chassis

ALUMINIUM CHASSIS.

Aluminium and aluminium alloys are used extensively in the BMW 5 Series chassis, making it lighter and stiffer than its predecessor. Combined with near perfect weight distribution, it creates a responsive dynamic drive, making the BMW 5 Series a class leader.

Semi-autonomous driving

SEMI-AUTONOMOUS DRIVING.

Stop start traffic? Let the BMW 5 Series take over. A range of sensors, including a stereo camera, ultra-sound and radar monitor the area around the vehicle, allowing the extended functions of the Active Cruise Control and the Steering and lane control assistant to drive the vehicle. Together they will keep a safe distance between you and other road users.

BMW Display Key

BMW Display Key.

Forget everything you know about the car key. The BMW Display Key is a smart piece of technology that connects you to your new BMW 5 Series. A remote control and a touchscreen display in one, you can use it to park your vehicle, check your fuel, set the cabin temperature and see whether your BMW 5 Series is locked. And for those that prefer something simpler, the BMW 5 Series also comes with two conventional remote keys.

PROGRESSIVE MANAGEMENT STYLE.

Interacting with the BMW 5 Series Saloon.

Easy. Clear. Informative.

Touch interface.


Operating the vehicle's Infotainment system is easy, clear and informative. The driver can use the touchscreen to arrange the six tiles representing navigation, media, communication, ConnectedDrive, My Vehicle and messaging in any order.
