INNOVATION AS STANDARD.

TECHNOLOGY IN THE BMW 5 SERIES.

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

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.

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.

Forget everything you know about the car key. The BMW Display Key is a smart piece of technology that connects you to your 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.

BMW CONNECTED.

BMW Connected facilitates mobility in everyday life. Information such as recommendations for the optimum departure time is available outside of the vehicle by iPhone or Apple Watch and thanks to BMW Connected Onboard is also accessible in the vehicle. Furthermore, Remote 3D View allows the surroundings of the parked vehicle to be viewed from a distance.

Fully exploiting potential.
