Which BMW 5 Series is Ideal for You?

The BMW 5 series is a classic executive car manufactured by BMW since 1972 and is currently in its 8th generation (BMW G6). 

Just behind the BMW 3 series, the 5 series is BMW's second best-selling model and is available as a saloon and estate or an `M` series sports car.

The cars in the Five series have always been known for their high performance and fuel efficiency, as well as their advanced safety features and technology. Now, the series includes a PHEV plug-in hybrid and the fully electric i5 to expand its eco-friendly options further.

The BMW 5 Series has been in production for over 50 years, and BMW has consistently improved upon it. In fact, it was recently named "What Car Best Luxury Car" in 2022. The 5 Series is a prime example of BMW's "ultimate driving machine" slogan, as it combines sportiness and business executive class with stylish elegance and cutting-edge technology.

Highlights of the 2023 five series include a new front apron and emphasised kidney grille with “Iconic Glow”, a new modern and functional interior; the powertrains are all mild hybrid with the ability to recoup kinetic energy during braking and deceleration. 

Adaptive suspension allows adjusting the car’s characteristics to suit any driving condition. The characteristic rear-wheel drive associated with BMWs can be upgraded to the X drive, giving you an all-wheel drive option.

BMW's G60 5 Series has the latest iDrive 8.5 infotainment system powered by Linux software. The interface can be conveniently accessed through the BMW Curved Display, which seamlessly combines a 12.3 instrument cluster and 14.9 in infotainment system with a new touch interface, all in one sleek unit.

The AirConsole app enhances the operating system's capabilities by offering diverse video streaming options and in-car gaming features. With this free app, users can easily transform their smartphones into controllers for an extensive range of available apps.

The BMW Interaction Bar is an add-on for base models and standards on the i5. It has touch-sensitive controls for air conditioning and hazard lights and an illuminated control panel across the dashboard and front doors.

The G60 5 Series is now leather-free with Alcantara-wrapped seats and a steering wheel. Sporty seats are standard, while multi-contour seats come with the i5 M60 and can be added to other models.

The BMW Driving Assistant Professional helps drivers with features like Steering and Lane Control Assist, Distance Control, and Stop & Go. It also has the Active Lane Change Assistant.

The wide portfolio of engine options is remarkable: The latest generation of BMW 5 Series is available with a classic petrol or diesel engine but also as a fully electric BMW i5, plug-in hybrid or the particularly powerful M automobile.
