HEROICALLY DYNAMIC.Driving dynamics & efficiency of the BMW 5 Series Sedan.

Where dynamics are concerned, the BMW 5 Series shifts boundaries. Powerful engines impressively transmit its sporty exterior to the road. Apart from power, the BMW 5 Series also offer intelligent future technologies, which enables full utilisation of its dynamics to offer superior performance.

 

BMW 540i Sedan:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km* (combined): 7.2
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 164

*The published fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures are established according to legislated technical specifications (UNECE Regulation 101/UN Regulation 83 and SANS 20101 standards), which sets out the procedures that are used to measure the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The claimed figures are established using specific tests under standardised, carefully controlled conditions and may differ from consumption achieved under real world conditions with the influences of altitude, road surface, geographic conditions, vehicle options, temperature, humidity, tyres size and driving behaviour amongst others.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE CONTROL WITH ADAPTIVE MODE.

The Driving Experience Control offers the driver the choice between the standard COMFORT mode, ECO PRO Mode, geared towards efficiency, and SPORT mode, which enables even more dynamic driving. The new interactive function ADAPTIVE Mode continuously adjusts the Dynamic Damper Control, the steering and the Steptronic transmission to suit the current driving situation.

DEVELOPED TO BE BETTER.

DEVELOPED TO BE BETTER.

The BMW 5 Series does not settle for average and is the champion in its class in terms of acceleration and CO2 emissions. The Intelligent Start Stop function is included for the first time, which only switches the engine off when the stop is expected to last for a certain period of time.

SAVE WEIGHT. GAIN DYNAMISM.

SAVE WEIGHT. GAIN DYNAMISM.

By using lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra-modern aluminium alloys, the seventh generation BMW 5 Series of the seventh generation 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.

GUIDING THE AIR. INCREASING AGILITY.

GUIDING THE AIR. INCREASING AGILITY.

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.

BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS.

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.

FUEL CONSUMPTION AND CO2 EMISSIONS.

The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected. Consumtion data is determined in accordance to the ECE driving cycle.
The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.


Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.
