Williams BMW will be showcasing the brand new BMW 5 Series at its retail centres in February.
Ready to be unveiled to the public on 11 February 2017, the seventh generation model will use the very latest technology from within BMW to create a saloon that’s more refined than ever before, significantly lighter, safer, and more fuel efficient.
An extensive suite of driver assistance technologies means that not only does the new BMW 5 Series Saloon reduce the driver’s workload like never before; it also takes a notable step towards fully autonomous driving.
The interior of the new BMW 5 Series Saloon strikes a fine balance between sporty driver focus and sophisticated elegance. Top-class materials, supreme build quality and attention to detail, a great feeling of spaciousness and new technologies in abundance combine to offer both driver and passengers superb comfort and driving enjoyment.
The most up-to-date technology is also present, professional Navigation, RTTI, telephone, entertainment features and vehicle functions can be visualised on the standard high-resolution 10.25-inch screen and controlled not just in the usual manner using the iDrive Controller, but also by means of gestures, voice commands or simply touching the buttons on the touch-sensitive display.
A new, two-litre, four-cylinder in-line engine in the BMW 530i supersedes the petrol unit previously fitted in the BMW 528i. This turbocharged, direct injection engine produces 252hp (up 7hp on its predecessor) and enables the BMW 530i to sprint from zero to 62mph in 6.2 seconds. However, the most powerful petrol option at launch is the new BMW 540i xDrive, which produces 340hp. This three-litre straight-six generates an impressive 450Nm of torque (+50 Nm), yet despite this performance average consumption is 39.2mpg with CO2 emissions of 164g/km* - a reduction of eleven per cent over the outgoing model. The all-wheel-drive BMW 540i xDrive sets a new class-beating time of 4.8 seconds for the sprint from zero to 62mph.
Moreover, a plug-in hybrid version of the BMW 5 Series Saloon will also be launched in March in the form of the BMW 530e iPerformance model. The BMW eDrive system and a four-cylinder petrol engine work in perfect unison to achieve ultra-low CO2 emissions of just 49g/km*, while generating overall output of 252hp. Fuel consumption is a remarkable 134.5mpg. The BMW 530e iPerformance can reach a top speed of 87mph in all-electric mode and has an electric range of up to 28 miles.
The launch will be taking place at the prestigious Worsley Marriott Hotel & country club on Sunday 12th February from 11am to 4pm.
