The new BMW 5 Series Touring is not satisfied with mediocrity. So it’s only logical that it should lead its class in terms of acceleration and CO2 emissions. Hence the intelligent Start Stop function, included for the first time, which switches the engine off should the stop last for a little while.
Thanks to the use of lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra modern aluminium alloys, the fifth generation BMW 5 Series Touring weighs up to 100kg less than its predecessor. The intelligent lightweight construction also ensures a balanced weight distribution between front and rear axles, as well as a lower centre of gravity. The result is highly dynamic driving characteristics.
In the new BMW 5 Series Touring, BMW EfficientDynamics technology is visible on a design icon: the kidney grille. When there’s little need for cooling air, the Active Air Stream kidney grille remains closed, which improves aerodynamics and is unique in this class.
Less fuel consumption, more driving pleasure: BMW EfficientDynamics is the strategy to minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while at the same time increasing dynamics and driving pleasure. This approach covers the drive system, energy management and vehicle concept itself.
