Driving dynamics in the BMW 5 Series.

All BMW vehicles share one trait: incomparable driving dynamics. This characteristic is exemplified by the BMW 5 Series, in which every journey delivers pure driving pleasure.


With a 50:50 weight distribution between the axles and the perfect coordination of every component, the chassis of the BMW 5 Series is designed to give you the ultimate drive. Use of aluminium enables it to transmit its sportiness directly from the road to the steering wheel, while guaranteeing your safety and providing the highest possible levels of comfort.

Variable Damper Control and Adaptive Drive


Integral active steering.

Integral active steering physically enhances your driving experience by changing the car’s driving dynamics at different speeds.
At speeds of up to 35mph, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to the front wheels, making the wheelbase feel shortened and improving maneuverability and agility.
From 35mph, the rear wheels turn in the same direction as the front wheels, giving the impression of an elongated wheelbase enhancing stability and comfort.

Drive Performance Control.

We believe a car should be able to adapt to every driver. Our Drive Performance Control puts you in total control. Choose between Comfort mode, ECO PRO mode, or Sport mode and fine-tune your car, precisely to your settings.
