Midrand, South Africa – For the new BMW 5 Series range, it is all about paying attention to even the finest of details. From a more commanding outward appearance, an updated interior filled with detailed refinements and advanced innovations, the new BMW 5 Series is poised to be the most dynamic business sedan.

Updated exterior

To confirm its leading position at the premium end of the executive class, the BMW 5 Series range offers eye-catching design cues, including a clearly defined front and rear, a newly designed wider and taller BMW kidney grille and sleeker LED lights.

For the distinguished BMW 5 Series driver and occupants, a new Leather Dakota variant is now available for the seat surfaces, as well as optimised comfort seats.

Elevated safety

The new BMW 5 Series elevates safety to new levels, offering a number of passive and active features. The optional Integral Active Steering offers greater assistance at low-speed manoeuvering, while the Lane Departure Warning – part of the optional Driving Assist– is now offered with a lane return function. A 3-D visualisation of the surrounding area displays traffic situations and possible interventions by the assistance systems.

Efficient powerhouses

Under the skin lives BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, with four and eight-cylinder engines with optimised petrol injection. As an alternative, the diesel engine is offered with two-stage turbocharging.

Latest operating system

To top off the exceptional offering, the new BMW 5 Series range offers the standard-fitted BMW Operating System 7. The intuitive system opens up a host of potential new applications and connectivity options, as well as extended personalisation.

The new BMW 5 Series will be available in South Africa in the fourth quarter of 2020, at the below prices:
