The BMW 5 series has gotten a facelift and significant design upgrades for the year 2021. It has a heightened sense of outward authority, an interior brimming with detail refinements, and cutting- edge innovations in the areas of driver assistance, control/operation and connectivity.
The exterior design of the BMW 5 Series is headlined by sporting grace and clean surfaces. Precise modifications showcase the car’s presence and exquisite sporting style even more vividly.
Large, tautly drawn surfaces at the front and rear, the bold BMW kidney grille and new headlights and rear lights ensure the 5 Series exudes considerable visual impact.
LED headlights with automatic headlight range control are again fitted as standard on the new 5 Series. The two daytime driving light sources – arranged next to one other – are U-shaped, the turn indicators are located in special light modules at the outer edge of the headlights.
The unique, aerodynamically and weight-optimized 20-inch BMW Individual Aerodynamic Wheels are making their debut appearance. The innovative light-alloy wheels bring about a reduction in drag coefficient of around 5 per cent compared to the same car with conventional light-alloy wheels.
Top Speed and Acceleration:
The BMW 5 series 2021 (530i) has a top speed of 250 km per hour and on the sport mode, it accelerates from 0 – 100 km per hour in 6.4 seconds. In comparison to other cars in its class, we found the acceleration response to be a bit laggy.
The eight-speed Steptronic transmission has been employed once again for all model variants of the new BMW 5 Series. The latest version of the automatic transmission features a weight-reduced design, a newly developed control system and an increased gear ratio spread.
As a result, it is possible to achieve significant efficiency gains with reduced engine speeds, particularly when driving in higher gears.
The retuned electromechanical steering system in the new BMW 5 Series is a paragon of precision and comfort. It makes the car feel even more enjoyable to pilot, but in the process makes it less sporty to drive.
Available for all models, Adaptive suspension features electronically controlled dampers. By using continuously adjustable valves to meter the damping force at each wheel individually, it improves both the car’s sporting abilities and its ride comfort.
Interior and Infotainment system:
The cabin has a very welcoming vibe to it. Front and rear seats are equipped with memory foam and even on longer rides, the drive remains comfortable.
BMW Live Cockpit Plus remains part of standard specification for the new BMW 5 Series. However, it now combines a black panel instrument cluster with digital readouts, a 5.1-inch color display between them and a 10.25-inch Control Display with touchscreen functionality.
With its 12.3-inch diagonal, the cockpit’s instrument display provides enough room to accommodate an excerpt from the navigation map, status indicators for the driver assistance systems or 3D visualization of the surrounding area. The display style for the remaining readouts varies according to either the mode selected with the Driving Experience Control switch or the plug-in hybrid system’s operating mode. Drivers are also able to call up additional content, such as the sport displays for example, in the instrument cluster’s right-hand section.
The Control Display above the centre console also has a 12.3-inch screen and its main menu lets the driver configure up to ten pages, each showing two to four pads (tiles) with live content. Both the content and the graphics are now personalized to an even greater degree, as illustrated by the vehicle mock-up that matches the actual model color and equipment line.
The innovative voice- controlled BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant is activated by a spoken prompt (for example “Hey BMW”) or at the touch of a button, this digital companion acquires new capabilities all the time.
Naturally formulated spoken instructions can now also be used to open and close the car’s windows (partially or fully) or adjust the air conditioning. As you see in the video, it can also tune in to your favorite radio station as well.
