This is the brand new Bmw 5-Series Sedan! Once again, the new vehicle from the Bavarian manufacturer (the sixth generation of its second biggest seller, which first appeared in 1972) marks the epitome of aesthetic design and supreme driving pleasure in the upper midrange segment.
According to the manufacturer, the new models features the longest wheelbase in the segment, a long and sleek engine compartment lid, short overhangs front and rear and a coupe-like, graceful roofline which makes the vehicle stand out clearly from the competition.
The sedan follows the same design line as the 7-Series and the 5-Series GT and promises to offer a functional interior and superior ambience guaranteeing a truly unique driving and travelling experience.
"Highly advanced drivetrain and suspension technologies combine agile handling for the driver and a high standard of riding comfort for passengers. When equipped with the Sport Package, the new BMW 5 Series Sedan includes Adaptive Drive, which encompasses Driving Dynamics Control, Electronic Damper Control, and Active Roll Stabilization. Optional Integral Active Steering will virtually extend or shorten the vehicle’s wheelbase for improved stability at high speeds and enhanced agility at lower speeds. At launch, the new BMW 5 Series Sedan will be available with one V-8 and one inline-6 gasoline engine. The top-of-the-range BMW 550i arrives with BMW’s “reverse-flow” V-8 engine featuring twin turbochargers and High Precision direct injection for maximum output of 400 hp. The new inline-6 of the BMW 535i features a single twin-scroll turbocharger, High Precision direct injection, and, for the first time, VALVETRONIC throttle-less intake technology. It delivers a maximum output of 300 hp and 300 lb-ft. The 535i and 550i will be available with a choice of 6-speed manual transmission, BMW’s new 8-speed automatic transmission, or new “Sport Automatic” 8-speed. Later, the BMW 528i will debut with a 240 hp inline-6 featuring lightweight magnesium-aluminum construction and VALVETRONIC throttle-less intake technology for efficiency and unparalleled responsiveness." stated the press release.
