The BMW 5 Series is not satisfied with mediocrity. It is therefore only logical that it should be the absolute champion in its class in terms of acceleration and CO2 emissions. The Intelligent Auto Start Stop function, included for the first time, only switches the engine off when the stop is expected to last.
Thanks to more lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra modern aluminium alloys, the seventh generation BMW 5 Series weighs in at up to 100 kilograms less than its predecessor. The intelligent lightweight construction also ensures a balanced weight distribution between front and rear axle as well as a lower centre of gravity. The result is highly dynamic driving characteristics.
In the BMW 5 Series, the BMW EfficientDynamics package of technologies is visible on a distinctive design icon: the kidney grille. When demand for cooling air is low, an air valve inside the Active Air Stream kidney grille remains closed, leading to ideal cd values as low as 0.22, which are unique in this class.
Less fuel consumption, more driving pleasure: BMW EfficientDynamics is the name of the strategy to minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while at the same time increasing dynamics and driving pleasure. The package of functions covers the drive system, energy management and vehicle concept.
