Watch out for the updated new BMW 5 Series.
From July the car receives a refreshed appearance and there’s more fuel saving technology thanks to mild hybridisation (electrical assistance).
You’ll notice that the distinctive BMW kidney grille is now wider and higher and the headlights are slimmer.
There’s a Visibility pack you can order if you want Adaptive LED headlights with matrix technology or BMW Laserlights including High-beam Assistant.
At the back of the car, the LED tail lights also have a revised appearance with darkened lenses for a more high-tech style.
The M Sport versions are the most popular BMW 5 Series that we lease, and the latest upgrade package features new 19 inch and 20 inch Wheels. The new limited M Sport Edition comes with exclusive Individual metallic paint and unique 20 inch Air Performance wheels.
If you step inside the updated 5 Saloon, you will notice that the Central Information Display has increased in size from 10.25 inches to 12.3 inches. It’s also powered by BMW’s latest Operating System 7.0.
From November 2020, BMW's eDrive PHEV technology will be combined with a four-cylinder petrol engine on the new BMW 530e Saloon and - for the very first time – the BMW 530e Touring.
There will also be the opportunity to have plug-in technology for a six-cylinder BMW, with the 545e xDrive Saloon model becoming available.
The new BMW 5 Series comes in a choice of three trim levels: SE, M Sport and M Sport Edition.
Standard features of the SE include a choice of 17”, 18” and 19” alloy wheels and Steptronic or Steptronic Sport transmission. The interior benefits from Dakota leather upholstery, Oxide Silver dark matt trim, Sport leather steering wheel and heated front seats.
For the estate SE Touring model, specification includes split folding rear seats and matt silver roof rails, with all body styles also having an electronic tailgate.
New for the SE are folding mirrors, front electric lumbar support and Parking Assistant. Comfort, convenience and connectivity are heightened with automatic air conditioning, DAB radio, Connected Package Professional and BMW Live Cockpit Professional.
The M Sport trim level adds new alloy wheel designs in 18”, 19” and 20” sizes, the M aerodynamics package and high gloss shadowline exterior trim, which now extends to the roof rails on the Touring estate model.
Inside, there is an M leather steering wheel, front sports seats, a distinctive instrument panel finished in Sensatec, anthracite headliner and Aluminium Rhombicle Grey trim details. M Sport suspension is standard except on 530e and 530e xDrive models.
Step up a grade to the M Sport Edition and it features either Tanzanite Blue or exclusive Donington Grey paintwork, plus 20-inch alloy wheels fitted with runflat tyres, shadowline adaptive LED headlights, all-new red M brake callipers, extended high-gloss shadowline exterior trim and sun protection glass. The M Sport Edition specification also includes an M rear spoiler and M multifunction seats on the Saloon model.
