Long-wheelbase saloon (G38)

The BMW 5 Series (G30) is a mid-size executive car produced by German automotive manufacturer BMW, and is the seventh and current generation of the 5 Series. It was officially announced on October 2016 and sales began in February 2017.[10] The body styles of the range are:

  • 4-door sedan/saloon (G30)
  • 5-door estate/wagon (G31, marketed as the 5 Series Touring)
  • 4-door long-wheelbase sedan (G38, only sold in China)

The fastback 5 Series Gran Turismo model from the previous generation is no longer part of the 5 Series model range, and was replaced by the 6 Series Gran Turismo.[11]

Launch[edit]

The 5 Series saloon was unveiled on October 12, 2016[12] before making its public debut in January 2017 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.[13]

BMW created The Escape, a short action film featuring a 540i M Sport, to promote the G30 5 Series.[14] The Escape was released online on October 23, 2016.[15][16]

The 5 Series Touring was unveiled in February 2017[17] before making its public debut in March at the Geneva Motor Show.[18]

The 5 Series long-wheelbase model debuted in April 2017 at the Shanghai Motor Show.[19] Its wheelbase is 133 millimetres (5.2 in) longer than that of the normal 5 Series saloon[19] and is exclusively sold in China.[19]

Specifications[edit]

Platform[edit]

The G30 5 Series utilises BMW's modular Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform[20] first introduced in the 7 Series (G11).[21] The 5 Series' chassis is made from a mixture of different grades of steel and aluminium.[22]

Much of the 5 Series' body panels are constructed of aluminium, including the bonnet, boot lid, roof and doors.[23]

Suspension and steering[edit]

The 5 Series uses double-wishbone front suspension and 5-link rear suspension[20] while Touring models feature self-levelling rear air suspension.[17] Active anti-roll bars (named "Dynamic Drive") are optional equipment.[24]

All versions of the 5 Series use rack and pinion steering with electric power assistance.[25] "Integral Active Steering" is an option on some models; and combines electromechanical four-wheel steering and a variable-ratio steering rack.[24][26]

Powertrain[edit]

The 5 Series is offered with a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. It is also offered as a plug-in hybrid.[27]

Up until 2018, 520d models were fitted as standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, while ZF's 8HP the 8-speed automatic transmission is optional.[24] All other models, including the 520d xDrive, are exclusively available with the ZF automatic transmission.[28][29]

BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system is optional on some base models and is standard fitment on top-of-the-line models.

Equipment[edit]

Interior

Compared with its F10 predecessor, the G30 includes an updated BMW iDrive system with a higher resolution 10.25-inch display, a new heads-up display that covers 70% more area as well as selective anti-dazzle high beam headlights with a range of up to 500 metres.[30] The 5 Series is also available with gesture control, new multi-contour massage seats, and a Driving Assistant Plus package that features lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and a collison warning system.[31]
