The All-New BMW 5 Series Sedan

The design of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan exudes athletic prowess, elegance and

stylistic assurance. The new model therefore remains the quintessential sporting

business sedan. “The new BMW 5 Series will make a mature, confidently stylish and

dynamic impression at every opportunity. The formal and precise design combines

presence, aesthetic appeal and functionality in equal measure,” says Karim Habib,

Head of Design BMW Automobiles.

Design

The front end: a more striking face, LED headlights as standard.

The familiar BMW kidney grille, flanked by twin circular headlights, lends the front of

the new BMW 5 Series a more eye-catching appearance. The glass headlight covers

now connect seamlessly with the kidney grille, emphasising the car’s width.

The standard LED headlights already make the BMW 5 Series a captivating prospect,

its concentrated gaze locked onto the road. As part of the optional equipment,

Adaptive LED Headlights alter the light graphic with BMW Selective Beam anti-dazzle

high beam, with a range of up to 500 metres. The LED tubes of the daytime driving

lights are hexagonal and extend up to the kidney grille element, creating a stylistic

connection which accentuates the wide, low-to-the-road appearance of the front end.

Distinctive looks: the Sport Line and Luxury Line.

BMW offers the Sport Line and Luxury Line equipment packages for the BMW 5

Series, allowing it to be tailored as closely as possible to the customer’s personal

wishes.

Sport Line shines the spotlight on the car’s dynamic character and stands out with

numerous trim elements in high-gloss black and line-specific 18-inch light-alloy

wheels (optional 19-inch). Opening the doors reveals illuminated aluminium door sill

strips with a BMW logo and Sport Line designation. For the interior, Sport Line adds

BMW Sport seats and specific trim finishers.

Luxury Line emphasises the car’s elegant character with features such as chrome

kidney grille bars, Air Breathers and window surrounds. Line-specific light-alloy

wheels (standard: 18-inch, optional: 19-inch) underscore its exclusive looks. The

aluminium door sill strips with BMW logo bear Luxury Line lettering. Leather seats

with contrast stitching and special decorative inlays shine an even brighter light on the

high-class character of the interior. The instrument panel is covered in Sensatec.

M Sport package adds extra dynamic allure.

The M Sport package will be available from introduction for the new BMW 5 Series.

It includes the M aerodynamic package (front apron with larger air intakes, side skirt

trim, a diffusor-style rear apron and an exhaust system with two rectangular tailpipes),

lowered M Sport suspension and M light-alloy wheels in 18-inch (optional 19-inch)

format. Inside the car, M sports seats highlight its sporting focus and are joined by the

new M Sport leather steering wheel, exclusive floor mats and interior trim finishers.
