With more than two million vehicles sold, the current BMW 5 Series sets new benchmarks in the premium business segment. Since its market launch in 2010, the sixth generation of the BMW 5 Series has been best in class in terms of design, driving dynamics and efficiency. As a result, it has become the most successful BMW 5 Series generation to date, also clearly leading the world’s bestseller lists in the segment for the last six years. Compared with the previous generation, sales of the current BMW 5 Series have even risen by more than 42 percent.

The BMW 5 Series is in demand worldwide.

Since the start of production in 1972, a total of more than 7.5 million vehicles of the sixth-generation BMW 5 Series have been sold. Therefore, this series is one of the decisive factors in BMW’s success story. Moreover, for six years now, the current generation of the BMW 5 Series has been the market leader in the premium business car segment. Last year alone, more than 347,000 customers worldwide opted for a BMW 5 Series Sedan, a BMW 5 Series Touring or a BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo.


The series owes its extraordinary popularity partly to the wide range of engines. A broad spectrum of powerful and efficient four, six and eight-cylinder petrol and diesel engines are available for the BMW 5 Series. It ranges from the BMW 518d (combined fuel consumption: 4.7- 4.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 124–114 g/km)* to the extremely dynamic M5 Sedan delivering 412 kW/560 hp (423 kW/575 hp with Competition Package, combined fuel consumption: 9.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 231 g/km)*. Furthermore, the BMW 5 Series is optionally available either with rear-wheel drive or with BMW xDrive intelligent four-wheel drive. With the comprehensive range of BMW ConnectedDrive features and unique services such as Intelligent Emergency Call with Accident Severity Recognition, the BMW 5 Series also sets standards in terms of vehicle networking.
