Read Time:2 Minute, 23 Second

The recently unveiled 2017 G30 BMW 5 Series Sedan is considered the latest high-end model to be released on the market, the model coming with exceptional driving dynamics and efficiency. Once it will be unveiled in February and March, next year, the model will be offered in a wide array of versions, each one coming with extraordinary features and performance under the hood; not to mention the latest technology onboard.

Once arriving on the market on the 1st of February, the G30 5 Series will be available in the BMW 530i/BMW 530i xDrive, BMW 540i/BMW 540i xDrive, BMW 520d/BMW 520d xDrive, and BMW 530d/BMW 530d xDrive. There are also other high-end versions to follow starting March 2017, these ones also coming with impressive performance specifications: the BMW 530e iPerformance, BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Edition, as well as the BMW M550i xDrive.


The Efficient Dynamics package adds more exceptional features to the 5 Series, with the main highlight on the car`s kidney grille, which comes with advanced cooling air system, air valve inside the Active Air Stream, automatically leading to reduced cd values and increased performance.

The package comes with reduced fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions, increasing the car`s dynamics and driving capabilities. BMW EfficientDynamics package is a complex system which covers the car`s styling, drive system and energy management. They all work hand-in-hand, along with the car`s advanced and lightweight architecture, improving the 5 Series` aerodynamics and engine efficiency. The package also comprises the latest drivetrain technology – the BMW eDrive technology – making the 530e iPerformance, for instance, one of the most fuel-efficient BMW models ever built.

As for the technology that lies underneath the sedan`s skin, this is also an integral part of BMW EfficientDynamics. We are looking here at the latest generation of petrol burners and diesels, all fitted with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, comprising the latest injection system and turbochargers as well as fully variable performance control.

All engines, including the three- and four-cylinders petrol, along with the much more potent six-cylinder mills, prove to be more powerful and fuel-efficient yet lower on CO2 emissions than the previous generation. And that thanks to the BMW EfficientDynamics package, which comprises the latest injection technology and Valvetronic fully variable valve control with double-VANOS and latest turbocharger technology.

Besides the impressive performance figures, reduced fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions, the package also comes with advanced mechanics, such as the Integral Active Steering with the Driving Experience Control, which offers a choice of driving modes – Comfort, Eco Pro and Sport mode – adding the Adaptive Mode which adjusts the car`s Dynamic Damper Control, steering and the Steptronic transmission, increasing thus its driving dynamics and efficiency.
