The driving dynamics of the BMW 5 Series Sedan.

All BMW vehicles share one trait: incomparable dynamics. This characteristic is especially tangible in the BMW 5 Series Sedan – every metre travelled is a chance to experience pure driving pleasure.


You can feel the sporty driving pleasure that the chassis of the BMW 5 Series Sedan transmits from the road directly to your steering wheel, while guaranteeing safety and the highest possible comfort.

In addition, it confidently meets a variety of requirements: as taut as it is comfortable, dynamic and safe. 50:50 weight distribution between the axles and perfect coordination of the components makes this possible.The aluminium integral rear axle isolates the road vibrations from the engine and allows more power transmission and comfort. The double-arm front axle ensures wheels grip the road tightly.

The aluminium structure eliminates unnecessary weight while increasing rigidity, and in the case of a collision, it absorbs the forces of the impact to provide maximum passenger protection. Sporty manoeuvres can be carried out smoothly in every driving situation without any unnecessary jolting of passengers.


The Driving Experience Control gives you the choice: you use the button in the centre console to activate the desired mode.

Change from Comfort mode, with the standard engine and transmission settings, to ECO PRO mode, geared towards efficiency, or Sport mode, which enables more dynamic driving. You can see underneath the rev counter which setting is currently activated.

  • ECO PRO Mode

    The economical ECO PRO mode intelligently adapts the characteristic curves for accelerator and transmission as well as the heating/air conditioning strategy. ECO PRO tips help you optimise your own driving and the bonus range gives you feedback on how many additional kilometres you have gained thanks to ECO PRO mode optimised fuel consumption.

  • Sport mode

    By contrast, in Sport mode the car responds more directly and allows a sportier driving style. A predefined set-up provides much sportier engine as compared to the standard set-up. For example, the engine becomes even more responsive. The gearshift timing is made much sportier.



The 8-speed automatic transmission makes changing gears and driving significantly more convenient, thanks to fast engine speed transitions and shorter shift times. It unites outstanding comfort with palpable dynamics and increased fuel-efficiency. Gears can also be changed manually using the selector lever.
