The exterior design of the new 2021 BMW 5 Series is headlined by sporting grace and clean surfaces. Precise modifications showcase the Sedan and Touring’s presence and exquisite sporting style even more vividly.
The BMW kidney grille adds extra width and height, drops down further into the front apron and is framed by a single-piece surround. The slimmer contouring of the headlights brings a modern twist to the focussed look familiar from BMW’s past and present. Two U- or optionally L-shaped daytime driving light sources arranged next to one another create a precise and modern light graphic. New full-LED headlights including adaptive cornering function, BMW Selective Beam non-dazzling high beam with matrix technology, and the High-beam Assistant are offered as an option. And BMW Laserlight is now likewise optionally available for all variants of the BMW 5 Series. In both optional headlight variants, the outer daytime driving lights also perform the role of turn indicators. Black edging and a new L-shaped graphic give the rear lights of the new BMW 5 Series additional visual impact. The rear lights and brake lights are integrated into a shared light fixture, which now forms a single unit with the prominently three dimensional external lens. Regardless of the equipment line and engine specified, all models of the new BMW 5 Series come with trapezoidal tailpipe finishers.
The M Sport package brings a significantly more muscular design to both the front and rear of the car thanks to new, dynamically proportioned aerodynamic features. New exterior colours and the BMW Individual Air Performance Wheels – making their debut here – provide additional enhancements.
The innovative construction of the exclusive light-alloy wheels brings about
a reduction in weight and drag coefficient. Plus, a new M Sport Edition version of the new BMW 5 Series will be available from launch in a limited worldwide production run of 1,000 units. Its exclusive specification includes the M Sport package, model-specific Air Performance Wheels and a Donington Grey metallic paint finish.
The now standard 10.25-inch or optional 12.3-inch Control Display, newly designed controls on the centre console and the standard sports leather steering wheel with newly arranged multifunction buttons headline an interior brimming with detail refinements. Standard equipment for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and new BMW 5 Series Touring now also includes automatic climate control with extended features.
New additions to the options list include M multifunction seats with a wide range of adjustment, new interior trim strips and seat surfaces in Sensatec perforated trim.
From autumn 2020, latest-generation BMW eDrive technology will be teaming up with a 4-cylinder petrol engine to power not only the new BMW 530e Sedan and new BMW 530e xDrive Sedan, but also the new BMW 530e Touring and new BMW 530e xDrive Touring . The engine produces maximum output of 184 hp, while the electric motor develops 80 kW (109 hp). The joint output of the two power units can be briefly increased to a maximum 292 horsepower (215 kW) thanks to the XtraBoost feature. Electric range is 58 – 62 kilometers (36 – 39 miles) for the new BMW 530e Touring and 53 – 56 kilometers (33 – 35 miles) for the new BMW 530e xDrive Touring.
The arrival of the new BMW 545e xDrive Sedan in autumn 2020 will further broaden the selection of plug-in hybrid variants. In this model, the 80 kW (109 hp) electric motor combines with a straight-six petrol unit generating 286 hp (210 kW), resulting in an overall output of
394 hp (290 kW). The new BMW 545e xDrive Sedan achieves an electric range of 54 – 57 kilometres (34 – 35 miles). The BMW eDrive Zone digital service is available in all the plug-in hybrid models as standard. This unique function automatically switches to the all-electric operating mode when the vehicle enters a “green zone”.
Alongside the 530 horsepower (390 kW) V8 under the bonnet of the range-topping BMW M550i xDrive Sedan, the new BMW 5 Series comes with a choice of three other petrol and three diesel engines generating between 184 hp (135 kW) and 340 hp (250 kW). The direct injection system in the petrol units operates at increased pressure, meaning greater efficiency, while the two-stage turbocharging technology now fitted in all diesel variants makes for even sharper power delivery. All the engines link up with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard. BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive is offered as a standard or optional feature for all model variants with the exception of the entry-level petrol engine.
