Bmw unveiled the latest generation of 5 series – which now comes with a completely new platform, a handful of new technology and new, more powerful and cleaner engines!
At first contact might seem like new “Five” is not too different from the old – at least visually. But look a little better and you will notice that the new 5 Series of BMW looks more modern, tighter and more dynamic than the model it replaces. But still – Series 5 is an important model for the Bavarian manufacturer, so the formula remains the same – attractive sedan with dynamic lines but conservative proportions. In fact, it reduced our naliknuva the 7 Series but with a more aggressive and sportier character.
The most important are the innovations that are “under the skin” – the new 5 Series is now set to the same CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform used in Series 7, but without the elements of carbon. However, this means reducing weight up to 100 kg – of which only 70 are in the platform. The suspension remains the same configuration, but BMW engineers’ve developed geometry and used lightweight parts from aluminum managing to be even more dynamic, and can get the standard suspension, stiffer sports suspension version with electrically controlled dampers and top version with electric shock and active roll-bars.
At the beginning you are offered four turbo-stuffed engines. Colors of petrol will defend 530i carrying a 2-liter four-cylinder available 252 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque, and 540i wearing 3-liter inline 6-cylinder engine that delivers 335 horsepower and 450 Nm torque. Both engines are turbo-stuffed and use the latest generation of BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. Equipped with basic petrol engine, the new Five accelerates to 100 kph in just 6.2 seconds, while the 540i will need only 4.8 seconds. Both versions are electronically limited to 250 mph.
If you want turbodiesel in the offer are the new 520d and 530d. The smaller turbodiesel has a capacity of 2 liters, four-cylinder delivers 190 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. It accelerates to 100 kilometers per hour respectable 7.6 seconds and reaches a maximum of 237 kilometers per hour and consumes an average of only 4.1 liter of fuel per 100 kilometers. Go step above the new 530d and get in-line engine with six cylinders that delivers excellent 265 hp and a powerful 620 Nm of torque. This engine consumes just 4.5 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers, which would help the Bavarian sedan to accelerate to 100 kph in 5.7 seconds and achieve electronically-limited 250 mph.
Soon after the launch of the bid will be added three more performances – efficient 520d EfficientDynamics, Plug-in hybrid 530i ePerformance, as well as sports, 8-cylinder 550i. Economical EfficientDynamics will consume only 3.9 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers and hybrid ePerformance only 2 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers – certainly in combination of gasoline four-cylinder engine and an electric motor with a total system output of 252 horsepower.
In March next year the market will arrive BMW M550i xDrive – and will be the highlight of the bid to the emergence of the new M5. Great M550i xDrive will be powered by a V8 engine that delivers 462 horsepower and 650 Nm, and will “run” up to 100 mph in just 4 seconds!
