Outstanding. Stylish.The design of the BMW 5 Series Sedan.


With its dynamic proportions and modern shape, is impressive at first glance, the BMW 5 Series Sedan is built to meet the highest requirements. This look is consistently implemented from the front, over the striking silhouette, to the rear.

The new optional LED headlights are slightly bevelled at the top and stand out in its charismatic face. A bold double kidney grille slants forward more prominently, indicating the power that lies dormant behind it, and allows the BMW 5 Series Sedan to take centre stage.

The theme started by the front is carried through in the self-confident elegance of the side lines. In addition to the classic forms of a BMW Sedan with lengthened bonnet, short overhangs and a large wheel base, the BMW 5 Series Sedan also shows off its sportiness. It confidently presents its new rear lights with their optical depth and L-shaped design. They integrate perfectly into the rear end with its newly-designed bumpers, and round off the entire look in an aesthetically pleasurable way.

The interior of the BMW 5 Series Sedan is like a made-to-measure suit, perfectly tailored. Everything is just right, from the harmonious look-and-feel to the high-quality materials. In typical BMW fashion, the logically-structured cockpit is driver-orientated and appears to surround the driver. All instruments are ergonomically arranged and the comfort functions are also within the passenger's reach.

The elegant interdependency of horizontal surfaces and taut lines mean that all passengers enjoy a generous sense of space, whether they're seated in the front or the rear. The optical centre is always inclined towards the road and the self-confident, modern look of the interior clearly communicates a feeling of comfort and security. The BMW Luxury Line gives you the option of adding refined and luxurious material and design elements to the BMW 5 Series Sedan, giving it a particularly independent character.


The optional Adaptive LED Headlight includes Adaptive Headlight with variable urban and highway light distribution, cornering light and anti-dazzle high-beam assist featuring automatic high-beam and low-beam headlight function. The system thus provides optimum road illumination in all conditions.

The moving headlamps allow you to see deep into corners in the dark as soon as you start turning the steering wheel. To improve short-range visibility, the cornering lights are automatically activated as soon as the turn indicator is switched on or the steering wheel is turned – even when the vehicle is at a standstill. The Adaptive Headlights ensure optimum illumination in every situation on the road, significantly increasing active safety.

The anti-dazzle high-beam assist automatically turns the high-beam headlights on and off depending on the ambient light conditions and traffic situation, ensuring excellent visibility when driving at night. The system monitors the presence of vehicles driving ahead or oncoming traffic and continuously adjusts the high-beam headlights to avoid dazzling or distracting other road users.


The unique atmosphere of the BMW 5 Series Sedan highlights absolute comfort in surroundings in which you can feel at home wherever you happen to be seated. The centre console is aligned towards the driver.

All instruments and displays are exactly where one would intuitively look for them. With the optional BMW Head-Up Display, the driver even sees the most important information projected on the windscreen in his line of sight. A range of equipment is available to customise and refine the unmistakeable overall experience that is the interior of the BMW 5 Series Sedan.

  • Light design

    The special ambient lighting equipment provides gentle, stylish illumination. This underscores the luxurious ambience and also serves as a functional source of light, e.g. in the storage compartment of the centre console as well as in the door pockets and side lining. The colour switch function lets you create your preferred mood by giving you the choice between a bright white or muted orange light.

  • Multifunctional instrument display

    The optional multifunctional instrument display stages the different driving experience modes with customised instrument displays. It creates worlds of colour and mood for more safety, efficiency and exemplary driver orientation. Navigation instructions and information from the drive assist systems can now be registered even more easily at a glance. With these features, the new digital presentation distinctly increases the comfort, experience and safety of driving.

  • Bang & Olufsen high-end surround sound system

    The BMW 5 Series Sedan can be equipped with the innovative Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system. Supreme listening pleasure and a magnificent driving sensation merge into one unique experience. Sixteen active speakers with a total of 1,200 watts produce music in brilliant quality. Acoustic options can be selected: in 'Studio' mode, a clear sound emerges, while in 'Expanded' mode, the acoustic space appears enlarged, creating an incomparable surround sound experience.
