The perfect ergonomic molding of the seats in the BMW M5 Sedan is indispensable for high-speed driving experiences at the top level. They fit the driver ideally and intensify the enjoyment of the journey.

The M seats with their contoured side supports and electric backrest width adjustment are a key component of the inimitable driving experience in the BMW M5 Sedan. They provide protection against lateral acceleration forces and support the driver on every bend. The upholstery, available in several colours including Black, Silverstone and Sakhir Orange, is captivatingly exclusive and robust. The Memory function saves settings for the driver such as the seat height, lateral position and angle of the backrest. Special shoulder cushions, used exclusively for M seats, grant even more side support.

The optionally available M multifunctional seats additionally offer the option of integrating active seat ventilation and the massage function for the active seat. This considerably reduces any risk of the driver tiring quickly.


The aim is to provide the maximum possible protection for the occupants of the BMW M5 Sedan and other road users. This is made possible through an effective combination of intelligent technology and a new generation of steels.

The optional protective concept Active Protection from BMW ConnectedDrive in the BMW M5 Sedan uses forward-thinking technology to safeguard the driver and passengers from injury in extreme circumstances. The seat belt tensioners built into the front seats actively enhance the function of the seat belts, while automatic sliding discs ensure the side airbags function optimally.

The BMW M5 Sedan also offers a high level of passive safety. Multi-phase and warm, restructured steels are intelligently combined to provide superior protection for passengers. They also absorb and divert the impact energy by selective deformation − which additionally protects the other party in the accident. If there is a collision with a pedestrian, an automatic system lifts the bonnet to cushion the impact.



The optional Comfort Access system is simple, safe and sophisticated. It lets you enter and start your BMW M5 Sedan without taking the key from your pocket.

As you approach the vehicle, the key transmits an identification signal. The doors unlock as soon as you make contact with the door handle and, for a safe entry, the surrounding lighting automatically illuminates the door sill for 20 seconds. The tailgate is also fitted with innovative technology for maximum comfort. It opens automatically when the built-in sensor detects a brief, deliberate movement of the foot under the bumper, not in connection with the tow bar and the trailer hitch. When everything is ready, a brief touch of the Start/Stop button is all it takes to start your journey.

Comfort Access also simplifies locking your BMW M5 Sedan. Briefly press the exterior door handle when you exit, and your vehicle locks automatically. The locking mechanism is disabled as long as your key remains in the cabin. So locking your keys in the car by accident becomes impossible.
