1. Exterior Design

The BMW 5 Series Sedan is a showcase of sporty elegance, boasting a distinctive and modern design language. Its athletic proportions and increased exterior dimensions compared to the previous generation highlight its presence. The vehicle has grown in length, width, and height, creating a more dynamic and sporty profile than its predecessors. The signature twin headlights and BMW kidney grille give the front view a distinctively sporty appeal. The side section exudes an athletic look thanks to a high shoulder line, powerfully modeled surfaces, and two distinct character lines. The rear end’s design emphasizes the width and solid stature of the vehicle, with flat rear lights that reinterpret the brand’s hallmark L-shaped lights with modern appeal. A wide range of paintwork options is available, with specific design features for the BMW i5 M60 xDrive and M Sport Package.

2. Engine

BMW 5 Series Sedan offers a lineup of powerful engines. The standard powertrain is a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine that delivers an exhilarating 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It offers a fuel efficiency of 27 mpg combined. For those who crave more power, there’s the 335-horsepower 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-6 engine, which makes 332 pound-feet of torque. There’s also a fuel-efficient 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo Diesel inline-6 engine that manufactures 261 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, offering 30 mpg combined. At the top end, the 456-horsepower 4.4-liter M Performance TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine generates 480 pound-feet of torque, offering heart-pounding speed.

3. Panoramic Glass Roof

One of the standout features of the BMW 5 Series Sedan is its fixed panoramic glass roof, offering a significantly enlarged viewing area and a fresh perspective on every journey. For the first time in any BMW 5 Series sedan, a panoramic Sky Lounge roof can be ordered in place of the standard slide-and-tilt moonroof. This design serves as a fixed structural module, covering nearly the entire roof surface, extending uninterrupted from just behind the windscreen to almost the rear window. With a length of 33 inches and a width of 32 inches, the viewing area of the panoramic glass roof is almost 90 percent larger than that of the standard tilt-and-slide moonroof, bathing the interior in natural light and creating a generous, light-flooded atmosphere. For those times when less light is preferred, an interior sunblind is available for shading.

4. Interior and Equipment: AirConsole Gaming Experience

Designed to be enjoyed while the vehicle is stationary, this feature transforms wait times, like battery charging periods, into fun-filled gaming sessions. The setup is straightforward – all you need is a smartphone to act as a controller and the BMW Curved Display.
