The BMW 5 Series Saloon delivers excellence on all fronts: not only is it one of the most stylish and luxurious executive Saloons on the market, out-classing even the Mercedes E-Class in terms of comfort and standard specifications, but it also delivers high performance and remarkable efficiency thanks to the latest Mild Hybrid Technology which has just been added to this latest facelift version (hence the letters MHT in the description). It incorporates a 48 volt combined starter-motor generator and a battery to store electrical power which can then be used to boost the cars performance at low revs when pulling away in traffic, saving between 5 and 10% of fuel compared to a non-hybrid version. It also provides an 11 bhp temporary boost to the engine’s power reserves as well as a number of new fuel-saving features. These include a coast function that shuts down the engine for periods of trailing throttle, improved brake-energy recuperation and the ability for the engine to be automatically switched off at speeds below 9mph.
The exterior of the 2021 BMW 5 Series Saloon is as streamlined and powerful as you might expect from the leading German manufacturer. The standard SE specification includes 18 inch light alloy wheels, automatic two-zone air conditioning and high-tech iDrive controller, among many other premium features, while the optional or M Sport trims offer larger alloys, upgraded interior upholstery and a range of attractive body styling additions. There are also two plug-in hybrid version of the Saloon with the 530e and 545e, which give even greater efficiency and lower emissions thanks to the combination of a turbocharged 2 or 3 litre petrol engine and electric motor.
There are a selection of diesel and petrol engines to choose from in the new 2021 5 Series Saloon range, all of which include Turbo technology, and either 4 or 6 cylinders, with the latest high pressure injection systems. An eight-speed gearbox is included as optional in the entire range, which also improves efficiency, while the standard six-speed manual transmission offers a more affordable option.
