Welcoming the New 2017 5 Series
BMW’s mission statement is to set new standards, and the all-new 2017 BMW 5 Series is the embodiment of business-level excellence. Thanks to its dynamic and elegant appearance, it exceeds expectations for professional-grade aesthetics and state-of-the-art technology.
Bred in a performance facility a half-hour outside Munich, Germany, the 5 Series offers responsive handling along with four choices of powertrains, from the fuel-saving to the power-hungry. Greater fuel efficiency, recognized safety, and an interior ring of elegance make this lineup perfect for professionals and their clients. Let’s take a closer look at the 2017 BMW 5 Series offerings: the 2017 BMW 530i and 2017 BMW 540i:
Performance & Economy
The standard offering is the 530i with its turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine at 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and the 8-speed automatic transmission. The 530i saves fuel each time the car stops by putting the engine on standby. Or if your taste is more European, there’s the 540i, remarkably fuel-efficient and torquey at the slam of the accelerator. Later this year, we’re also expecting a V8 very much alike last year’s turbocharged 4.4L V-8, the 550i xDrive at 445 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Stay tuned for updates on this newcomer, as we do expect it sooner than later in 2017.
There’s something that distinguishes the BMW interior from other luxury vehicles: a complete understanding of simplicity and elegance that BMW has built its generation-long reputation on. The dash is unencumbered with all manner of cockpit instruments, and this absence is what creates such a strong, minimalistic impression. Rather, the controls are subtly angled towards the driver who sits in a multi-way adjustable, multi-contoured seat. Infotainment with the touch-screen media centre tune the harmony of the interior without over-garishness taking away from the ambiance.
This year’s BMW 5 Series lineup has been redesigned with new safety features contributing to its outstanding crashworthiness score according to the IIHS. Furthermore, the 2016 BMW 5 Series has been awarded with a 5-star overall safety rating from the US federal government, and we expect 2017 to be no different. A standard offering of traction and stability control, enveloping airbags, and ABS provides a solid foundation for the active safety system, while available upgrades such as blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, and more demonstrate BMW’s ethos of excellence.
