BMW 5 Series

Price in India : 39 Lakhs - 67 Lakhs


The BMW 5 Series is an executive car manufactured by BMW since 1972. The car, now in its sixth generation, is sold in sedan and touring body styles. It is BMW's second best-selling model after the 3-Series but represents about 50% of the company's profits. On January 29, 2008, the 5 millionth 5 Series was manufactured, a 530d Saloon in Carbon Black Metallic. The 5 Series got its name by being the fifth of the "new series" cars after the V-8 and Isetta era. The preceding models were the 700, the "New Class", the "New Six" 2500/2800/Bavaria and the CS. The 5 Series was intended to replace the older New Six sedans.
The first generation's body was styled by Marcello Gandini, based on the Bertone 1970 BMW Garmisch 2002 ti Geneva show car. Gandini also did the Fiat 132 and Alfa Romeo Alfetta, two other cars that have a similar design. There have been six generations of the 5 Series to date. To differentiate between them, they are referred to by their unique chassis numbers (EXX or FXX). The 5 Series began the BMW tradition of being named with a three-digit number. The first digit (5 in this case) represents the model, and the following two digits (usually) represent the size of the engine in decilitres, which is the main distinguishing difference. Additional letters or words may be added to the end of the three-digit number to define the fuel type (petrol or diesel), engine or transmission details, and the body style. The 'i' originally stood for (fuel) 'injection'.
BMW have played it safe with the new 5 Series. Built on BMW’s so-called ‘backbone strategy’, the Fives are now larger than ever before – at 4841 mm it’s the longest vehicle in its class. he gear-lever is joystick-like, but beyond that there is little that could offend the design-conscious, and much to enjoy. In the rear, the larger wheelbases provide greater legroom and shoulder space than previous models – space enough for two large adults comfortably. e seating offers plenty of space and leg room, and can be adjusted to suit all driver types, with the major controls positioned well. The only flaw is the slight offset of the pedals, which some drivers may find inconvenient. It’s a pleasant car to use, due to nice touches such as a hydraulic-powered cover beneath the boot floor, an independently opening rear windscreen, and a rear seat split as 40/20/40 in the standard models.BMW 5 Series is available with 6 engine options: 4 diesel and 2 petrols. The 2497cc, V6 petrol engine generates maximum power of 201 bhp with maximum torque of 450 nm. The 2979cc, V6 petrol engine develops maximum power of 400 bhp with maximum torque of 300 nm. The 1995cc diesel engine (520d) generates maximum power of 184 bhp with maximum torque of 380 nm. The 2993cc diesel engine (525d) develops maximum power of 201 bhp with maximum torque of 450 nm. 2993cc diesel engine (530d) develops maximum power of 245 bhp with maximum torque of 540 nm. The 2993cc diesel engine (GT 530d) generates maximum power of 232 bhp with maximum torque of 500 nm.If you add the optional Variable Damper Control onto the 4-cylinder models, and the Adaptive Drive addition to the 6-cylinder vehicles, the car is transformed into a sharp-handling, smooth ride. Overall, the Series 5 does an excellent job of suppressing all noise to give a refined drive.
