Its mission statement: setting new standards. The All-New 2017 BMW 5 Series is the embodiment of the modern business sedan. Thanks to its dynamic and simultaneously elegant appearance, it convincingly meets the expectations that are placed today on a vehicle of its class: aesthetic athleticism and driving pleasure with state-of-the-art technology.
Born and bred in a performance facility a half-hour outside of Munich, Germany, the 5 Series offers fast and responsive powertrains with excellent handling, in a way that might easily be taken for granted have you never become attuned to a lesser automobile. And with four choices of engines, from the fuel-saving to the powerhouse, the BMW 5 Series once again can be many things to many different people. Greater fuel efficiency, recognized safety, and an interior ring of elegance make this a lineup that cannot be passed without a glance.
Climb the performance ladder as high as you'd like with the new 2017 BMW 5 Series lineup. The standard offering is the 530i, which comes with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that produces 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 530i, which saves fuel each time the car stops, gets an improved fuel economy on the highway. And if your engine tastes are more typically European, there's the 540i, a remarkably fuel-efficient and torquey engine available for the 5 Series. We're also expecting a V8 later this year, comparable to last year's turbocharged 4.4L V-8 engine in the 550i xDrive which offered 445 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque at the slam of the accelerator. Stay tuned for updates on this engine.
The 2017 BMW 5 Series lineup has been redesigned, with new safety features contributing to its outstanding crashworthines score according to the IIHS for Superior Front Crash Protection. Furthermore, the 5 Series has been previously awarded with a 5-star overall safety rating from the US federal government, and we expect the same for 2017. The standard offering of traction and stability control, enveloping airbags, and ABS (with self-drying rotors) provide a solid foundation for the active safety system, while available upgrades such as blind-spot monitoring, rearview camera, and more, help to demonstrate how BMW's ethos of excellence enters into all aspects of their engineering, not just engine performance.
What separates the BMW interior from other luxury vehicles and fully-trimmed domestic manufacturers' offerings is a complete understanding of simplicity and elegance that BMW has built a reputation on for generations. The slightly lowered dash is unencumbered and not screaming with all manner of cockpit instruments, and yet this absence is what creates a strong impression. Rather, the controls are subtly angled towards the driver, who sits in a multi-way adjustable multi-contoured seat and grasps a standard sport steering wheel. The spacious 5 Series cabin can easily and comfortably fit 4 fully-grown adults, while infotainment features like the touch-screen media centre all help to tune the harmony of the interior, all without taking away from the ambiance with over-garishness.
