There’s never been a better time to drive away in an award-winning BMW 5 Series. Dick Lovett BMW in Bristol, Bath, Swindon and Hungerford has a great range of new BMW 5 Series models for sale and ready to take home today.
With a long list of accolades - the BMW 5 Series has been named as What Car’s Best Luxury Car for the third consecutive year and Fleet News’ Best Executive Car for the second year running - why wouldn’t you want to drive away in this top-spec, premium BMW?
Taking much of its inspiration from its larger and supremely luxurious BMW 7 Series cousin, the BMW 5 Series effortlessly blends superior comfort, performance, handling and fuel economy all in one classy package.
The BMW 5 Series is offered with SE and M Sport trims, plus a wide range of engines, with a selection of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid variants to choose from.
BMW’s legendary diesel models offer peak performance and excellent mpg - the BMW 5 Series 520d SE 4dr Saloon has a 187bhp 2.0-litre engine, a combined fuel cycle of 68.80mpg and a 0-62mph time of 7.50 seconds.
If you’re looking for an even punchier drive, then look no further than the BMW 5 Series 530d xDrive M Sport 4dr Auto. With a top speed of 155mph, this BMW 5 Series M Sport gets from 0-62mph in just 5.40 seconds yet still manages to return a combined fuel figure of 50.40mpg.
All BMW 5 Series models, whether it’s a BMW 520d, BMW 530d or a BMW M Sport, come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, while xDrive four-wheel drive is available as an option on 520d and 530d models. It’s fitted as standard on the BMW 540i.
Petrol models may not have quite the same mpg figures as their diesel counterparts but the BMW 520i, 530i and 540i models still have more than respectable figures under the bonnet. The 520i and 530i use 2.0-litre turbo petrol engines with either 183bhp or 249bhp, while the 540i has a 335bhp 3.0-litre straight-six. The BMW 5 Series 530i SE 4dr Saloon Auto still manages to return 48mpg on the combined cycle and hit 0-62mph in just 6.10 seconds.
No Compromise in Comfort, Dynamics or Luxury in the New BMW Series 5
Inside, no expense has been spared and the BMW 5 Series has one of the best cabins in the range. There’s a floating 10.25in touchscreen, a redesigned instrument cluster and the latest head-up display if you opt for the Technology Pack. This also includes Gesture Control functions.
Entry level models come with 17 inch alloy wheels, while the more powerful models come with 18 inch alloys, cruise control, LED head and brake lights, auto lights and wipers, chrome exhaust trim and parking sensors on the outside as standard.
There’s also dual-zone climate control, velour floor mats, heated front seats, aluminium interior trim and BMW's iDrive infotainment system complete with DAB radio, sat nav, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, BMW's online services and a 20GB hard drive.
The BMW 5 Series M Sport gets quadrilateral exhausts, LED fog lights, an M Sport bodykit and a bespoke braking system for all models except the 520i and 520d
It’s not without good reason that the previous generation of BMW 5 Series cars clocked up more than 2.1 million sales. The BMW 5 series is everything a large luxurious car should be, offering supreme ride comfort, with precise handling, exciting dynamics and superb fuel economy and performance.
It’s the perfect choice for those looking for either an executive saloon for work or a superior family car - or maybe a combination of both.
