BMW Group Malaysia Introduces the All-New BMW 5 Series.
The Ultimate Business Athlete promises Sheer Driving Pleasure with refined engineering
and an unmatched degree of connectivity.
Kuala Lumpur, 29 March 2017 - BMW Group Malaysia today introduced the all-new
BMW 5 Series. Now in its seventh generation, the Most Progressive Sports-Business
Sedan promises Sheer Driving Pleasure and will set a new benchmark in the automotive
premium segment in the country.
Mr. Han Sang Yun, Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Since its
first introduction in 1972, the BMW 5 Series sedan has created a lasting legacy in the
automotive premium segment, embodying unrivalled performance, elegance and
combining cutting-edge engineering with sophisticated innovation. Now, the new seventh
generation all-new BMW 5 Series is destined to continue this remarkable success and
ambition of the most successful Premium Business Sedan in the world.”
Han added that the all-new BMW 5 Series is already an award winner, recently taking
home the much coveted iF Gold Award 2017, the highest accolade for Design at the
recent iF Design Awards 2017. A jury comprising of 58 international design experts
emphasised that the premium executive sedan demonstrated clear precision of sporty
design, brand related recognisability of both interior and exterior as well as the balance
between emotionally and visual presence. The All-New BMW 5 Series is also currently a
finalist for the famed World Luxury Car of the Year Award 2017.
With enhanced driving dynamics, an unbeatable line-up of assistance systems, an
unmatched degree of connectivity and a new and innovative operating system, the all-
new BMW 5 Series is the most innovative premium executive sedan to date and points
the way to the future of mobility in the segment.
Design: athletic, sleek and prestigious.
Even when standing still, the all-new BMW 530i M Sport creates a powerful impression.
In the seventh generation of the sportiest business sedan, the kidney grille and
headlights are directly linked for the first time ever. Here, the BMW Adaptive full-LED
headlights with LED daytime running lights have been enhanced with roundabout light
and high beam with a range of 500 meters.
The low roof line sloping to the rear of the sedan lends the muscular body an elegant
coupé-like silhouette while the broad rear emphasises the high performance capacity of
the All-New BMW 5 Series. Also for the first time, the crease below the side windows
curves upwards into the Hofmeister kink for a more dynamic appearance.
Alongside its superior driving pleasure is its unsurpassed aerodynamics. Rigorous
application of the BMW EfficientLightweight design concept, with increased use of
aluminium and high-strength steels, reduces the weight of the all-new BMW 5 Series by
up to 100 kilograms from that of its predecessor. The newly designed chassis, a low
centre of gravity, BMW’s hallmark even weight distribution and a lightweight body offering
exceptional torsional stiffness combine a wonderfully dynamic driving experience with the
long-distance comfort for which the BMW 5 Series is renowned.
These many aerodynamic refinements and airflow-optimizing elements, including the
visible air vent control in the kidney grille, air inlets and Air Curtains in the front apron, as
well as Air Breathers in the front wings, all contribute to the best drag coefficient of any
sedan (up to cd=0.22).
With the M Sport package, the all-new BMW 530i M Sport puts passion for dynamism at
the forefront. 19-inch M light-alloy wheels in double spoke style with mixed tyres, M Sport
brake with blue painted callipers with ‘M’ designation, as well as M Aerodynamics
components in the body colour, front and rear aprons and sill covers at the side make for
the athletic appearance of the all-new BMW 5 Series. Internally, the all-new BMW 5
Series is fitted with sports seats for the driver and front passenger, illuminated M door sill
finishers, new M specific pedals, and M leather steering wheel.
The interior refinement of the new premium executive sedan from BMW also sets a new
benchmark for comfort and workmanship. The all-new BMW 5 Series has the best-in-
class dimensions of 4,936 mm (+29mm) in length, 1,868 mm (+8mm) in width, and 1,479
mm (+2mm) in height – dimensions that promise increased space and comfort inside the
car with more room for all occupants and a larger luggage compartment of 530 litres in
the boot space.
Powertrain: driving dynamics and efficient driving pleasure.
With improved athleticism, the all-new BMW 530i M Sport is a car not to be trifled with. Its
engine is based off the newly developed, modular BMW EfficientDynamics family of
power units. BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology which comes with a Twin Scroll
turbocharger, High Precision Direct Injection, VALVETRONIC fully variable valve control
and a Double-VANOS variable camshaft timing works in tandem to deliver outstanding
performance combined with exceptional efficiency.
With the latest-generation inline 4-cylinder 2-litre petrol engine mated with an equally
optimised eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, the all-new BMW 530i M Sport
generates a maximum output of 252 hp, torque of 350 Nm and accelerates from 0 to 100
km/h in just 6.2 seconds at a top speed of 250 km/h. The average fuel consumption of the
all-new BMW 530i M Sport stands at 5.8 litres per 100 km with C02 emissions of 132
grams per kilometre.
Meanwhile, the Driving Experience Control system now provides access to a fourth mode
– ADAPTIVE – in addition to the COMFORT, SPORT and ECO PRO driving modes. The
ADAPTIVE mode works alongside Dynamic Damper Control (DDC) and Navigation
System Professional wherein the steering, DDC and Steptronic systems automatically
adapts to the current driving style and route ahead.
A new breed of success through technology.
Triumphing in every situation calls for one thing above all: first class equipment. The all-
new BMW 5 Series guarantees seamless connectivity with the outer world while its
intuitive operation ensures maximum comfort and safety with maximum productivity.
The intuitive controls in the all-new BMW 5 Series too have received much praise.
Equipped with the latest-generation iDrive system, it displays navigation and
entertainment features, including vehicle functions on a high-resolution 10.25-inch touch
screen. The system can be operated using the iDrive controller, by voice command or
gestures, or by touching the display controls directly, as the driver wishes. The large, tile-
style panels can be arranged as desired to show the content of the underlying menus in
constantly updated form.
User experience is further improved with the BMW Gesture Control. This simple and
intuitive operation works through distinguishable gestures for accurate recognition. Not
only does it add a modern operating mode to the car, but it also acts as a safety feature
by allowing the driver to keep his eyes on the road without any distractions.
Further maximising the levels of on-board comfort are the automatic air conditioning with
4-zone control and electrically adjustable sport seats with Memory function for the driver
as well as heat and sun protection glazing.
The all-new BMW 5 Series also now widens its lead with the latest innovations in driver
assistance systems. The Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function adjusts pre-set
speed to the traffic situation based on radar and camera data. Operating at speeds of up
to 210 km/h, it slows or even stops the vehicle when the car encounters congestion and
automatically starts up again as soon as the radar sensors detect that the car in front is
moving again. This system now also recognizes roundabouts and motorway exits and
controls acceleration accordingly.
Another new driver assistance system in the all-new BMW 5 Series is the Speed Limit
Info with Intelligent Speed Limit Assist which detects speed limits and feed them into the
Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function. The driver can adapt the permitted
maximum speed in the cruise control system from 15 to +15 km/h.
What’s more is the additional safety and comfort functions that provide highly intelligent
support to the driver in everyday travel. In addition to the Lane Departure Warning and
Lane Change Warning, the all-new BMW 5 Series also features the Approach Control
Warning & Person Warning with City Brake function, a function which warns and brakes
within a speed range from approximately 10 km/h to 60 km/h for persons and up to 80
km/h for vehicles. In case an accident is unavoidable, the city braking function helps
reduce the impact speed and hence, the severity of the accident. Approach Control
Warning also warns the potential collision with a vehicle ahead at higher speeds, with
preconditioning of the brakes for faster brake response and shorter braking distances.
The Crossing-Traffic Warning Rear meanwhile, supports the driver when reversing out of
parking spaces and warns of potential collisions with intersecting traffic in situations
where it is difficult to see everything around them. In combination with the Rear View
camera, the Crossing-Traffic Warning Rear is extended by and additional real-image
display. The Prevention of Rear Collision function also detects threat of rear collisions via
rear sensors and warns the traffic behind via the hazard warning lights.
In addition to the advanced driver assistance systems with innovative digital services, the
all-new BMW 5 Series also offers the best in class connectivity. A key feature is the self-
learning BMW Connected mobility assistant which supports individual mobility planning
inside and outside the vehicle, especially on busy working days with endless meetings
and appointments. This enables users to manage their time more efficiently, for stress-
free journeys. Along with time-to- leave recommendations and remote access to vehicle
functions, it now also offers additional services which the driver can access upon
downloading the BMW Connected app.
Additionally, the on-board computer in the all-new sBMW 5 Series has a standard LCD
display and a high-resolution wide-screen colour display which also shows Check Control
warnings and information from the Driver Assistant. For example, Speed Limit Info allows
the on-board computer to keep the driver informed about current speed limits as well as
the status of the Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go functionalities and Lane Departure
Warning. It also displays messages and status updates from the Entertainment and
Communication functions as well as Navigation and Service information directly in the
The BMW Display Key with LCD colour display and touch control panel for example,
shows various information about the vehicle’s status and allows selected functions to be
controlled via the integrated touch display. Other pioneering BMW ConnectedDrive
features in the All-New BMW 5 Series include Intelligent Emergency Call, BMW
Teleservices, Concierge Services and Remote Services.
