The all-new BMW 5 Series – Specs, Prices and Availability

  • Lighter, more dynamic, and more efficient.

Manila, Philippines – Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC), the official importer and distributor of the BMW in the Philippines, today unveiled the all-new BMW 5 Series at the BGC Arts Center in Taguig. With its dynamic and simultaneously elegant appearance, the all-new BMW 5 Series convincingly meets the expectations that are placed today on a vehicle of its class: aesthetic athleticism and driving pleasure with state-of-the-art technology.

The seventh generation of the BMW 5 Series cuts a sporty, elegant, and stylish figure. Further enhanced dynamics, an unbeatable line-up of assistance systems, an unmatched degree of connectivity, and a new and innovative operating system are the most important new features. The all-new BMW 5 Series, therefore, has all the tools it needs to continue the remarkable success recorded by its predecessors; around 7.9 million BMW 5 Series cars were sold across its first six generations.

“Since 1972, BMW has been producing an award-winning vehicle that enjoys international recognition and success. As the world’s most successful business car, the seventh generation BMW 5 Series mirrors the goals of our NUMBER ONE > NEXT strategy,” said Asian Carmakers Corporation President Maricar Parco. “These include our passion for technological innovation, enhanced connectivity, and sustainable

mobility. With the expansion of our model portfolio in the premium business segment, we are confident that the all-new BMW 5 Series will further extend its emotional appeal by embodying all the values of the business athlete – strong character, relentless determination and a dynamic outlook on life.”

Sporty Elegance.

The all-new BMW 5 Series has been further enhanced with a keen eye for detail and a clear sense of direction regarding dynamism and precision.

At first glance, the latest generation of the BMW 5 Series reflects a number of striking new exterior features: the bonnet now extends to the Active Air Stream Kidney Grille with which the Adaptive LED Headlights are seamlessly merged. This gives the vehicle a broader stance. The character lines on the side turn up as they head rearwards further highlighting the Hofmeister Kink, which is a signature design element of every BMW vehicle.

At the rear, the tail pipes are now symmetrically arranged on either side giving the all-new BMW 5 Series ensures a bold, stylish, athletic demeanor at all times. The forms and precision of its design combine presence, aesthetics, and functionality in equal measure.

A 5 Series that Appeals to the Emotions.

The BMW 5 Series’ interior is carefully designed and selected to amplify the sense of sight, smell, and touch. The quality of the interior is further improved from the predecessor with the finest materials used throughout the cabin. Leather Dakota upholstery comes as standard, and the range-topping 530d Luxury includes Leather Nappa. The trims of the door panels are either in wood or aluminum while the surface of the dashboards of select variants are covered in Sensatec material. These trim parts are laser cut at the factory, to ensure the perfect fit-and-finish for every single 5 Series.

The rear passenger space has also been greatly improved. The knee room is 18mm longer than its predecessor and the seat cushion length is one of the best in its class. The transmission tunnel is narrow and the middle seat has been made wider to ensure that three adults can sit comfortably in the back.

Moreover, the BMW 5 Series’ lighting package of eleven different designs that includes numerous LED lights gives the interior an elegant ambience. The vehicle also includes an Ambient Air Package with eight fragrances that are divided into four categories: “Blue Suite” with fresh water fragrances, “Green Suite” with fresh plant fragrances, “Golden Suite” with warm and rich fragrances, and “Authentic Suite” with natural fragrances. Four scents come as standard in the all-new BMW 5 Series and deliver both fragrance dispersal and air ionization functions.

Follows Your Movements.

To complement its luxurious interior, the all-new BMW 5 Series also features the most advanced technology in its class. One of which is the BMW Display Key, which does more than locking and unlocking the vehicle. It can also provide information on the fuel level and turn-on the air-conditioning before the driver enters the car.

Once the driver steps into the car, a 12.3” full digital instrument display that is now standard across all variants welcomes the driver. Depending on the drive mode, the instrument will display different color themes and designs and highlight different information that are relevant to the drive mode; be it Sport, Comfort, or ECO PRO.

The all-new BMW 5 Series is also equipped with the latest version of the BMW iDrive system, Interface Design (ID) 6. The ID6 is considered to be one of the most intuitive automotive user interfaces in the market today as it features a 10.25” LED touch display equipped with the Navigation Professional System. The system also allows the driver to be in control of the many features and information on the vehicle without being distracted while on the road.

The enhanced iDrive system of the vehicle includes the BMW Gesture Control, which first introduced with the BMW 7 Series, and now comes standard in the all-new 5 Series. Adjusting the volume of the audio system as well as accepting and rejecting phone calls can be done via simple gestures, without having to press buttons.

Dynamics that Cannot Go Unnoticed.

The all-new BMW 5 Series once again sets the benchmark when it comes to performance and handling. Lightweight was a key goal in the development of the vehicle. Using EfficientLightweight technology, the all-new BMW 5 Series is up to 100kg lighter than its predecessor. Everything from the doors to the suspension setup, were masterfully crafted specifically for the lightweight body. This was made possible by installing aluminium panels and high strength steel where they matter to ensure that the car’s steering is sharp and incredibly agile.

The precision in driving dynamics is matched by the powerful engine. The new BMW 5 Series runs on the award-winning BMW TwinPower Turbo engine with an even lower fuel consumption than the previous generation. The engine is mated to a highly-advanced 8-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic function that provides seamless shifting and ensures smooth power delivery at all times.

Unlimited Driving Pleasure.

Three models of the all-new BMW 5 Series will be available in the Philippine market.

The BMW 520d will be offered in Luxury trim and M Sport Package. Both are powered by a 2-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engine producing a 190 hp and 400 Nm. The difference lies in the exterior and interior trims. The BMW 520d Luxury is fitted with elegant chrome trimmings, 18-inch wheels, and rear passenger roller sun blinds. The M

Sport variant, on the other hand, features a sportier body design, 19-inch alloy wheels, a BMW Head-Up display that projects the driver information on the windshield, and gearshift paddles on the steering wheel.

Finally, the top-of-the-line BMW 530d in Luxury trim is powered by a 3-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engine that produces 265 hp and 620 Nm. This variant comes with the top-grade Leather Nappa upholstery for the interior, 20-inch BMW Individual wheels, soft-close function for the doors, and the BMW Remote Control Parking with which the driver can park the car while he is outside the vehicle by just using the display key.

“Today, the seventh-generation BMW 5 Series has made yet another breakthrough in our quest for modern mobility, highest quality, and absolute precision. The all-new BMW 5 Series strikes a perfect balance of sport and style, with a sleek exterior and a host of innovative technologies within and we are proud to present it to the Philippine market,” said ACC President Maricar Parco.
