2011 BMW 5 Series


Following an earlier image leak, BMW has officially taken the wraps off the all-new 2011 5-Series Sedan. The 2011 model marks the sixth-generation of the venerable sports sedan. The 2011 BMW 5-Series Sedan will make its public debut at next month’s LA Show.


Developed under the codename “F10,” the 2011 BMW 5-Series softens the harder lines of the current E60 with more conventional-looking headlights and a cleaner front-end design. New European pedestrian safety standards are expected to drastically alter the design of many European cars for the worse, but BMW has managed to maintain its classic twin-kidney grille design with the new 5-Series while simultaneously reducing the length of the front overhang.


As is typical of most recent BMW redesigns, this 5-Series adds some space between the wheels by extending the wheelbase nearly 10 centimeters and widening the track. The car’s overall length has grown by less than 2 centimeters, while its height is slightly reduced and its width increased by a fraction. A set of 17-inch wheels are the smallest available with 18- and 19-inch wheels optional.


From launch the 2011 5-Series will offer one eight-cylinder and three six-cylinder gas engine options. Two diesel six-cylinder models will also be available.

The range-topping 550i model comes packing a 407 horsepower version of BMW’s turbocharged V8. As expected, BMW’s 306 horsepower turbocharged inline-six will be available in the 535i model. A 530d model is also be available — featuring a 245 horsepower diesel engine — should BMW decide to bring it to the U.S. The 258 horsepower 528i will be the entry-level model in the U.S.

Additionally, BMW will launch two four-cylinder diesel 5-Series models in Europe, with the most fuel efficient version being the 47 mpg (U.S.) 520d.

The next-generation 5-Series features an eight-speed automatic transmission with an all-wheel drive optional. The new 5 will also have Park Distance Control and an around view monitor system, similar to Infiniti’s Around View Monitor
