The low roof line sloping to the rear lends the muscular body an elegant coupé-like silhouette. And the broad rear emphasises the high performance capacity of the BMW 5 Series.



Opt for even more dynamics, even more exclusivity, even more individuality. Attractive lines and equipment allow you to secure your place among the front runners.

    BMW 19” or 20” light-alloy wheels not only blend in perfectly with the optical design of the vehicle but also meet supreme quality standards. They are developed specially for use with runflat tyres and have raised humps to prevent the depressurized tyres from sliding off the rims when cornering.

    The efficient auxiliary heating produces a pleasant interior temperature without an iced or misted windscreen. It can be programmed by iDrive or operated directly. Depending on the equipment, it can be additionally activated by a separately available BMW display key and an iPhone app.

  • Information & communication

    The practical universal holder is adjustable and clicks into place in the separately available base carrier of the Travel & Comfort system. It offers a secure support for a large number of Apple and Samsung tablets with Travel & Comfort Tablet Safety Case from 7 to 11 inches, and thanks to the 360° rotating frame with adjustment of the reclining angle, it can be fastened in the desired position at all times.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

  • The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    (1) The values are applicable until 15.04.2018. Please check availability with your BMW dealer.

    The values of the vehicles labeled with (3), are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at
