The New BMW 5 Series.
By pushing the limits of what’s possible, the game-changing new BMW 5 Series has become the most innovative car in its class. Unrivalled efficiency and innovative features make it the fleet users’ car of choice.
Having a secure connection to the road and the world around you is a given with the new BMW 5 Series, making your business miles safer and more productive. Innovative technologies weave together to make sure you keep your eyes on the road yet don’t miss any vital information. The new BMW iDrive 6 replaces the traditional menu view, giving you a snapshot of key information without distraction. If the iDrive controller or the touchscreen aren’t hands-off enough, there’s also the option of using BMW Gesture Control to perform specific functions at the wave, flick or rotation of your hand.
BMW recognises keeping in touch when on the road is often business critical, so Microsoft Exchange will synchronise your emails, calendar entries and contacts so you can access these directly when in the car. Your phone remains seamlessly connected to your car via Enhanced Bluetooth, which has wireless charging capability and the capacity for an optional WiFi hotspot.
To ensure you stay on the right track, the Driving Assistant package comprises a suite of advanced technology features:
- Steering and lane control assistant, including Traffic Jam assistant
- Lane keeping assistant with active side collision protection
- Cross traffic warning front
- Evasion aid
- Crossroads Assistant
- Wrong way warning
- Intelligent speed assist
- Active cruise control
BMW EfficientDynamics technologies are at the heart of our range, significantly lowering fuel consumption while decreasing emissions. ECO PRO mode, one of many selectable by the driver, tunes the vehicle to focus on fuel efficiency and comes as standard in all BMW 5 Series models. ECO PRO tips are displayed on the dashboard to guide your driving style to encourage even greater efficiency. The diesel-powered BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Saloon achieves CO2 emissions from just 102g/km*, while the hardware, software and aerodynamic setup work hand in hand to minimise fuel consumption without detracting from the hallmark BMW dynamic drive.
The new BMW 5 Series Saloon range includes a plug-in hybrid model from March 2017. Capable of reducing CO2 emissions to 46g/km†, this new model intelligently selects an appropriate balance of power delivery from the petrol engine and electric motor automatically, achieving the optimum combination of performance and efficiency.
Ease of vehicle charging is critical for an alternative-fuelled car and this model can be charged from household power sockets with the charging cable included, or on the go from public charging stations, in as little as two hours. You can also choose to install a BMW Wallbox or Wallbox Pro, which provides a quick and easy charging solution for use at home or work.
