Who Supplies What To BMW 5 Series

The 5 Series has been a crucial model for BMW in the Indian market, steadily contributing around 30 % of the company’s total sales, and living up to its ‘performance luxury sedan’ tag. Competing with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, the Jaguar XF and the Volvo S90, the seventh generation 5 Series was recently launched in India and promises better power, efficiency and comfort for customers.

The new BMW 5 Series comes with two engine options. The 3.0 l six-cylinder diesel engine of the 530d produces an output of 265 hp at 4000 rpm and a maximum torque of 620 Nm between 2,000 and 2,500 rpm. The 2.0 l petrol four-cylinder of the 530i produces a maximum power of 252 hp at 5200 rpm and a peak torque of 400 Nm between 1750 and 2500 rpm. The new 5 Series comes with eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission and is available with steering wheel paddle shifters. Both the petrol and diesel engines are borrowed from BMW’s EfficientDynamics family to provide more spirited power delivery and spontaneous responsiveness even at low engine speeds. Being equipped with BMW’s TwinPower Turbo technology, these engines comply with the BS IV emission standards, while offering enhanced performance levels.

In order to aid driving dynamics, the new BMW comes with a Driving Experience Control switch, which enables the driver to select between different driving modes (Comfort, Sport, Sport+, ECO PRO and Adaptive), depending upon the driving conditions. It also comes with a Dynamic Damper Control feature, which improves drive quality through suspension aids, which stabilise irregularities on the road. BMW has opted for a Lightweight Construction in the body, leading to a weight reduction of up to 70 kg compared to its predecessor. Assisting these are features such as a 50:50 weight distribution, low centre of gravity, automatic start/stop function, brake energy regeneration and electronic power steering.

In terms of safety features, the new 5 Series comes equipped with six air bags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with brake assist, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) including Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Hill Descent Control (HDC), side-impact Protection, Runflat tyres (RFT) with reinforced sidewalls, electronic vehicle immobiliser, crash sensor and integrated emergency spare wheel.

With its suite of advanced technologies, efficient engines, and revamped styling, the new 5 Series looks all set to take on the competition from Mercedes-Benz, Audi and others. For driving enthusiasts, the new 5 is still your best bet as the ultimate driving machine.
