CHASSIS.

You can feel the sporty driving pleasure that the chassis of the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo transmits from the road directly to your steering wheel, while guaranteeing safety and the highest possible comfort. In addition, it confidently meets a variety of requirements: as taut as it is comfortable, dynamic and safe. 50:50 weight distribution between the axles and perfect coordination of the components makes this possible.
The aluminium integral rear axle isolates the road vibrations from the engine and allows more power transmission and comfort. This characteristic can be further refined with the optional integral active steering. The double-arm front axle ensures wheels grip the road tightly. The aluminium structure eliminates unnecessary weight while increasing rigidity, and in the case of a collision, it absorbs the forces of the impact to provide maximum passenger protection. Sporty manoeuvres can be carried out smoothly in every driving situation without any unnecessary jolting of passengers.

8-SPEED STEPTRONIC TRANSMISSION.

The 8-speed Steptronic transmission makes changing gears and driving significantly more convenient, thanks to fast engine speed transitions and shorter shift times. It unites outstanding comfort with palpable dynamics and increased fuel-efficiency. Gears can also be changed manually using the selector lever.

INTEGRAL ACTIVE STEERING.

The integral active steering for automobiles with rear-wheel drive combines passively steering rear wheels with variable steering ratio at the front axle. At speeds of up to approx. 60 km/h the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to the front wheels. This subjectively shortens the wheelbase, improving manoeuvrability and agility. At speeds of up to approx. 60 km/h the rear wheels turn in the same direction as the front wheels. This subjectively extends the wheelbase, increasing stability and comfort – especially when changing lane quickly and abruptly.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE CONTROL.

The Driving Experience Control gives you the choice: you use the button in the centre console to activate the desired mode. Change from Comfort mode, with the standard engine and transmission settings, to ECO PRO Mode, geared towards efficiency, or Sport mode, which enables more dynamic driving. You can see underneath the rev counter which setting is currently activated.

BMW xDRIVE.

The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system adapts perfectly to even the most challenging road surface conditions, ensuring optimal traction at all times. xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) ensure that the BMW remains safe and stable. Controlled via the DSC sensor system, xDrive flexibly and quickly distributes drive power between the axles in order to prevent oversteer or understeer on bends, thereby ensuring outstanding directional stability. Moreover, it guarantees a rapid, safe acceleration even on slippery or steep stretches. In critical road conditions, the DSC doesn't need to intervene as much. Thus, BMW xDrive combines all the advantages of an all-wheel drive system – traction, directional stability and driving safety – with classic BMW agility.
