BMW EfficientDynamics in the BMW 5 Series.

The BMW 5 Series Saloon leads the way in efficiency. Every single BMW 5 Series comes with our suite of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, which significantly lower consumption while decreasing emissions – for even more driving pleasure.


As soon as you switch to the ECO PRO mode, your entire journey becomes focused on fuel efficiency. Depending on your individual driving style, this can result in a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 20% (according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study).
The additional functions of preview assistant and ECO PRO Route (both with Professional Navigation System only) increase the potential savings by an additional 5%. This mode optimises accelerator and transmission response as well as shift points, and intelligently adapts the heating/air conditioning strategy. The Control Display shows you which EfficientDynamics technologies are lowering your fuel consumption at any given time. You’ll also receive ECO PRO tips as you drive to help you boost efficiency even further.

EU6 emissions.

Always ahead of its time, the BMW 5 Series gives outstanding performance, spontaneous response and an exceptionally smooth ride.
It uses BluePerformance technology, standard on all diesel models, to optimise the diesel engine’s emissions. Helping to make it one of the cleanest diesel vehicles in the world and making sure it fulfils the stringent EU6 emission rule.


The entire design of the BMW 5 Series is testament to the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy. The aerodynamic front apron, the flat undercarriage, the wheel arches, and the cooling air inlets all contribute to the reduction of air resistance and so fuel consumption.

Brake Energy Regeneration.

The 5 Series’ Brake Energy Regeneration technology harnesses kinetic energy produced by slowing or braking and transforms it into electricity. Used to charge the car’s battery, the intelligent energy management system means that the alternator no longer needs to run permanently, so reducing strain on the generator.
The result is reduced fuel consumption and increased performance, typical of BMW’s EfficientDynamics.

Auto Start-Stop.

Auto Start-Stop conserves fuel when your car is moving. While waiting at traffic lights or in stop-and-go traffic, Auto Start-Stop saves fuel by switching off the engine as soon as the car comes to a stop and when you’re in neutral. 
Safety is paramount: Auto Start-Stop won’t function if the engine isn’t at its ideal operating temperature, if the cabin isn’t at its chosen temperature, if the battery level is too low or if the steering wheel is being turned. The engine automatically restarts if the car starts to roll forwards or backwards, or if the windscreen starts to fog up. 
And you can easily switch this feature on and off with the click of a button.
