BMW 5-Series Sales Statistics

Sales statistics of BMW 5-Series for last month:
0 Cars
5-Series & competitors statistics
  • Overview BMW 5-Series Overview

    It has almost become a norm to launch a vehicle in both petrol and diesel variants. At least when it comes to the Indian automobile market, one cannot think of launching a high priced car without enough fuel economy to please the customers. Not just India, most of the global developing nations face the concern of fuel. And it has gone beyond mere fuel economy, it is now a matter of accessibility too.
    BMW 5-Series Overview
    One cannot find enough fuel around the world hence the additional avenues such as electric and hybrid car technologies are at an all time high. So when a big manufacturer like BMW enters Indian market, they take note of it too. The BMW 5 Series is one such class that is offered in both petrol and diesel variants in India. The vehicle is impressive due to the unending list of offerings that have been offered in terms of exterior specifications, interior features, a range of engine performances and most importantly different fuel options. However India has only diesel variants at the moment. So this can be seen as an expansion strategy by BMW where it is specifically targeting fuel economy vehicles.
  • Exterior BMW 5-Series Exterior

    BMW took a bold step with BMW 5 Series with a rather sleek design compared to the other cars in the series. The BMW 5 Series comes with the signature kidney grille and the headlamps are positioned like squint eyes on either side of the front grille. The front grille is visually a tad smaller than the usual BMW designs.
    BMW 5-Series Exterior
    The side profile of the vehicle is elegant and offers a peak at the versatility of BMW designs. The rear design of the vehicle is rather simple with no flamboyance.
  • Interior BMW 5-Series Interior

    The interiors of BMW 5 Series are new yet familiar. Though the interiors seem new with the differed positioning of the stick, leather steering wheel, Radio and an impressive music system. However BMW seems to not take any risk in terms of what is being offered.
    BMW 5-Series Interior
    There is a sense of monotony in the vehicle design across all the series. The car is extremely spacious and has a decent leg room and head room large enough to fit an average adult. The impressive feature however is the ergonomically well designed seating arrangement and the air vents which spread the cooling to not just the front row but to the rear one too. Plush seats, well aligned instrument panel, sporty appeal and the well lit ambience of the vehicle as a whole make the vehicle a sheer beauty.
  • Engine & Transmission BMW 5-Series Engine & Transmission

    All the variants are interestingly of a 2.0 litre capacity with only the BMW 5 Series 530d M Sport and BMW 5 Series GT 530d LE offered as a 3.0 litre engines. The engine performance of the BMW 5 Series 525d Luxury+ is slightly tweaked to offer higher power compared to the usual engine variant. The three key variants however are BMW 520d, BMW 525d and BMW 530d. The BMW 530d produces a maximum output of 258 bhp and the torque reaches a peak of 540 Nm at 1500 rpm. The BMW 525d however offers 218 bhp out maximum output. The third variant BMW 520d does not fall short in terms of performance and generates a maximum output of 184 bhp decent 380 Nm or torque at mere 1750 rpm which shows the effective power distribution inside the vehicle. Following Common Rail Direct Injection in combination with a turbocharger, the BMW 520d offers a top speed of a remarkable 231 kmph.
  • Mileage BMW 5-Series Mileage

    Since all the variants are predominantly diesel oriented, they come with impressive mileage. BMW 530d offers an impressive mileage of 14.69 kmpl while the BMW 525d offers a slightly higher 17.09 kmpl. However most impressive of the lot is the BMW 520d which generates 18.48 kmpl mileage. The emission figures of all the vehicles comply the national regulations and are noted to be at 154.75 gms per kilometre and 114.47 gms per kilometre for BMW 525d and BMW 520d respectively.
  • Braking and Safety BMW 5-Series Braking and Safety

    BMW 5 Series packs the best of features from the BMW factory. With airbags strategically placed to offer safety to the passengers despite their seat position. This removes the possibility of the passengers getting hurt by the airbags instead of being protected by them during the collision impact. With ABS, Brake Assist, Child safety locks, engine immobilizer, door ajar warning, crash sensor and power door locks, the car offers the handpicked essential features from all of the BMW Series. The car also offers seatbelts to the front and the rear seat passengers. Brake Energy Regeneration allows the vehicle to convert its kinetic energy into electric energy so as to reduce the fuel consumption at start, halt and other areas where the engine functioning is not necessary initially.
  • Performance and Handling BMW 5-Series Performance and Handling

    One might argue that it is solely the innovative chassis that offers the unique driving experience to BMW that it has. The aluminium structure of the chassis manages to create a perfect mix or strength, agility and light weight characteristics enabling an aerodynamic ride. The chassis is sporty enough to allow the car to be ridden with ease on any terrain without anything to hamper the experience. Driving Experience Control is another key feature in the vehicle which allows the driver to choose between a Comfort Mode or ECO PRO mode or the Sport Mode. Among these, the ECO PRO mode creates an optimum solution to the accelerator, air conditioner or heater and transmission channel so as to create a perfect mix of all the resources available in the car that might hamper the fuel efficiency. The eight speed automatic transmission too helps in offering a fluidic riding experience despite the diesel roots of the engine.
  • What we think What do we think about BMW 5-Series?

    BMW 5 Series is a good car to have but purely in terms of internal luxury, Mercedes Benz does have an edge over BMW.
  • Competitors BMW 5-Series Competitors

    BMW 5 Series competes directly with Mercedes E Class . In terms of style, target market, etc. both these cars have a lot in common and a lot to differentiate at the same time.
