No lessthan  metal balls continually align and then realign themselves inever-shifting patterns – some abstract, some in the familiar contoursof a BMW vehicle. The sculpture serves as a perfect representationof our approach to design: it is this same fluid concept of beauty thatwe apply to our vehicles, even from the earliest stages. And like thesculpture, each component of our design concept must be in placein order to create a cohesive, unified whole.The BMW  Series Sedan – a winning combination of elegance,sportiness and luxury – captures this principle beautifully. With itstimeless profile with contours that impress, the gracefully chiseledbody of the BMW  Series expresses the essence of BMW design.But it is not simply a superficial attraction. You’ll find equal attention todetail has been paid to the entire vehicle. Under the hood are dynamic,fuel-efficient TwinPower Turbo engines, including the dynamic hybridpowerplant in the BMW ActiveHybrid . The cabin serves as a masterclass in functional comfort, from the Black Panel Display technologythat awakens to glowing life at the press of the Start button, to theParking Assistant feature that selects and then helps pilot you intoparking spaces. The  Series can also be lavished with the exquisitepaint finishes, sumptuous Extended Merino Leather upholstery andrich interior trims of BMW Individual Composition.Each of these aspects is compelling on its own. Incorporated intoa single, symphonic whole, the result is no less than class-leading.The BMW  Series Sedan resets the standards.

  6. 6. Driving experience12 13BMW EfficientDynamics has kept us moving toward one constant goal: our unwavering commitment to achievingmaximum power and efficiency with minimum emissions. This compels us to create the most efficient modelspossible – from powerful, lightweight engines to aerodynamic tail ends, and every part in between. For example,our Brake Energy Regeneration technology harnesses the kinetic energy normally wasted when coasting andstopping. This energy is stored in the vehicle’s battery, where it is available for running electrical components.As a result, the engine does less work, saving fuel and reducing emissions. It’s just one more way BMW is movingforward to make driving as enjoyable and efficient as possible.bmwusa.com/efficientdynamicsBMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS:THE LANGUAGE OF BMW ENGINEERING.BMW EfficientDynamicsLess emissions.

  9. 9. Driving experience18 19At BMW, bold artistic statements are reinforced in even the smallest details. In this case, numerous supporting technologies help you makethe most out of every ounce of this masterpiece’s power and grace. Take, for example, BMW’s Electric Power Steering (EPS). Enhancingboth precision and comfort, the EPS system relies on an electric motor, as opposed to conventional mechanical systems, to provideassistance during steering maneuvers on an as-needed basis only. Once steering wheel movement ceases, such as when cruising,energy consumption from this innovative system is reduced to zero. So you can drive exactly as you intend – with poise and precision.
  10. 10. A BMW SHOULDALWAYS RADIATEDYNAMISM.Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group Design, invitedus to join him on an exclusive test drive. An interview withthe expert about the design of the BMW  Series Sedan.Interview: Jan-Kirsten BienerCaptions: Brian FinallyAdrian van Hooydonk, what do you personally find so specialabout the BMW 5 Series Sedan? This BMW 5 Series reveals ata glance exactly what you can expect to experience inside. It’s theperfect fit, like a suit that’s made to order – and the BMW 5 Seriessuits any occasion. No matter if you’re on business, on vacation ordriving around town, you’re always dressed right, with a sure senseof style.At BMW, the 5 Series invariably has a special part to play.How do you see the role of this series in the current BMWportfolio? The 5 Series is the brand’s core product. The BMW5 Series Sedan has the longest pedigree in the range and, for thatreason alone, it holds a special place in our corporate history. Asalways, this BMW 5 Series demonstrates the perfect combinationof sportiness and elegance.Were these the two primary characteristics you were after inyour design? Let’s say that’s why the design of the BMW 5 Seriesfeatures very dynamic lines at the front and rear, while the side viewhas a stretched and timeless look to it.The way we see it, you’ve implemented three design conceptsin a single car. Would you agree? The observer always sees a caras a whole. Every BMW expresses a high degree of sportiness andelegance, with the mixture varying from one series to the next. Forme, the BMW 5 Series is the epitome of the sporty business sedan.While it clearly belongs to the large sedan class, at the same time ithas its own distinctive looks, based on the three primary characteris-tics that you referred to: the charismatic appeal of the front end, thestylish elegance of the side view, and the natural, authentic sportinessof the rear. Those were indeed the specifications for this model, andI’d say they’re all readily identifiable in the finished product.Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group Design,describes the BMW  Series Sedan.Exterior designer Jacek Fröhlichgets to work on his design model.You put great emphasis on the dynamism of this model. Buthow sporty can a BMW 5 Series Sedan be? A BMW must alwaysbe an expression of dynamics and motion! The 5 Series in particularappeals to customers who love driving, including long distances, andreally appreciate the typical driving dynamics of a BMW. The propor-tions are clearly defined by the heritage of BMW sedans: short over-hangs, long wheelbase, a long hood and the cockpit set well back.It seems you like working with lines. The door handles, forexample, meld into the seam lines. The primary measures ofBMW’s design language are proportion and volume. It’s only atsecond glance that the lines that delineate the spaces become visible.Inside, you’ve opted, in general, for clearly defined spaces,with clean lines and no unnecessary frills. What’s the reason-ing behind that? The interior, too, has to speak of dynamics andelegance. Our idea was to express this through smoothly flowinglines across the instrument panel and doors.How do you manage to create an interior with such a modernatmosphere? First and foremost, by ensuring that the exterior andinterior form a harmonious whole – and just like on the outside, thecloser you look inside the BMW 5 Series, the more innovations youdiscover. For example, there’s the momentum of the two lines onthe instrument panel that’s carried over onto the passenger side –something that only strikes you at second glance. Or the way thetrim panel transitions from the instrument panel to the door, with achrome-color highlight. It’s the sum of these detailed refinementsthat explains the appeal of the BMW 5 Series interior.The headlights are capped with a strip of frosted glass thatlooks like an eyebrow, while the taillights have a pronouncedL-shape. Why did you go for these visuals? Our “night design,”as we call it, ensures that the BMW 5 Series can be clearly identifiedas a BMW even in the dark. That’s why, at the front, we chose tohave the “eyebrows” lend a slightly angular look to the round twinheadlights. The L-shape of the taillights builds a bridge betweentradition and progress. The Corona headlight-rings are also availablewith state-of-the-art LED technology.Were there any areas where you deliberately wanted to set thismodel apart from its predecessor? This time around, we havedesigned a very upright kidney grille. In fact, we’ve gone back to givingit a slight forward angle. This shows, on the one hand, how firmly rootedwe are in our own design history. On the other hand, it underpins thesporty character of this model. Overall, the latest BMW 5 Series Sedanlooks a touch lower and wider than its predecessor – which means itlooks even more dynamic.The kidney grille is particularly wide and striking in this model.Why is that? Well, of course the kidney grille is not just a designelement, it’s also an important air inlet. But in the current BMW5 Series the design of the kidney grille has one primary purpose.It says, “This is one sporty sedan!”Thank you very much for this exclusive interview! It was apleasure talking to you.Interior designer Oliver Heilmer checking the lines anddimensions of the body on the clay model.Emotional sketch of the exteriorof the BMW  Series Sedan.

  15. 15. BMW EfficientDynamics30 31BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS:VEHICLES THAT REQUIRE LITTLE AND GIVE A LOT.BMW was one of the first automotive manufacturers to pursue efficientdriving technologies – one part of our award-winning sustainabilitystrategy. Our commitment to EfficientDynamics means we arecontinuously developing innovative systems that bring us closer to ourlong-term goal of emissions-free mobility. However, we remain equallycommitted to driving pleasure, which is being pursued in different ways.First, there is the continuing optimization of conventional diesel- andgasoline-powered models. Second, BMW hybrid vehicles are already onthe road. Third, the first  percent electrically powered BMW – theBMW ActiveE – is being distributed in a field trial to customers. Andfourth, the fleet of BMW Hydrogen  vehicles impressively demonstratedthe potential for combining hydrogen drive with a combustion engine.Since  BMW has been able to reduce the CO emissions of itsentire fleet by approximately  percent and intends to achieve afurther  percent reduction by . BMW EfficientDynamics representsthe most comprehensive package of innovative technologies currentlyin production, for reducing fuel consumption and emissions whilesimultaneously creating The Ultimate Driving Machine.®Different paths to the same destination: unmistakable BMWdriving pleasure.In early  BMW launched its first production models with hybrid drive.Today the BMW ActiveHybrid , ActiveHybrid  and ActiveHybrid  offeran unparalleled combination of thrilling performance, increased fuelefficiency and reduced emissions. The BMW ActiveE, with its innovative percent electric drive system, introduces an entirely new form ofdynamic performance, paving the way for the future of emissions-freemobility. Finally, a completely new vehicle concept targeted at meetingthe need for sustainable mobility in fast-growing metropolitan areas willsoon become reality: the BMW i.THE BMW  SERIES SEDAN’SEFFICIENT DYNAMICS INITIATIVE AT A GLANCE.High-Precision Direct Injection.In this latest-generation direct fuel injection system, the piezo injectorsare positioned very close to the spark plugs.

The systemhelps the engine “breathe” better by providing fully variable lift adjust-ment of the inlet valves.-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission.The close spacing of gear ratios in this -speed automatic transmissionmakes maximum use of the optimum rev range, reducing fuel consump-tion and allowing smoother shifts.Auto Start-Stop function and Hybrid Start-Stop function.Even when idling, such as at a stop sign, an engine burns fuel. BMW’sAuto Start-Stop function – or Hybrid Start-Stop function in theActiveHybrid  – enhances fuel efficiency by switching off the engine.(The intelligent electronics system first checks the battery charge leveland calculates if other electric systems, like the heated rear windshield,need more energy.) Once the brake pedal is released, the engine startsup again almost instantly. A Start-Stop signal in the display indicatesthe function is active.Brake Energy Regeneration.In vehicles with Brake Energy Regeneration, the alternator generateselectricity only when the driver takes his or her foot off the accelerator.Kinetic energy that was previously unharnessed is transformed intoelectrical energy, then fed into the battery. In this way, electricity isgenerated without consuming fuel.Electric Power Steering.Unlike conventional, hydraulic steering systems, Electric Power Steeringdraws power only during actual steering movements. When the steeringwheel position is constant, the electric motor is inactive.Not all BMW EfficientDynamics features are available on all models.Please see your authorized BMW center for details.

  21. 21. Six technical questions42 43Head-up Display.When I am in the middle of rush-hour traffic,I don’t want to take my eyes off the road, evenfor a second. Luckily, I don’t have to. The Head-up Display projects Navigation instructions andother important information on the windshield,directly in my field of vision. In fact, it looks as if itis floating above the hood. How does Head-upDisplay work?Inside the dashboard support structure, thereis a monitor – similar to the display in a mobilephone. LEDs generate an image on this display.Then, like a slide projector, four mirrors projectthe image onto the windshield, enlarging it sixtimes. Due to a clever optical arrangement, itappears to be about six feet away, so the driver’seyes don’t have to keep refocusing. With noneed to move the eyes back and forth betweenthe instrument cluster and the road, the driverstays less distracted and more relaxed.Integral Active Steering.My BMW  Series Sedan has Integral ActiveSteering. I love driving up in the mountains. Yeteven in the middle of tackling the tightest twistsand turns, I find I feel totally relaxed. Why is this?While Active Steering varies just front-wheelsteering efforts based on vehicle speed, IntegralActive Steering controls the steering angleof both the front and rear wheels. At lowerspeeds, the rear wheels turn counter to the frontwheels. This makes your vehicle feel as if it hada shorter wheelbase, for greater precision on,say, twisting mountain roads. At higher speeds,the rear wheels turn in the same direction asthe front wheels. It responds as if it had a longerwheelbase, with enhanced control during quickhighway lane changes. In other words, IntegralActive Steering handles a lot of the work for you.Active Ventilated Seats.I drive long distances on my job. My BMW clientadvisor said that getting Active Ventilated Seatsin my  Series Sedan would make a huge differ-ence in how I felt. What do they do?Active Ventilated Seats are constructed withtwo hollow cavities in the seat bottom. Theseare alternately filled and emptied with liquid.This slow, gentle process raises and lowers thecushion’s left and right halves by about half aninch. Although the movement is imperceptible,it acts to move your muscles, increasing bloodflow. During long trips, this helps relieve fatigue.With the ventilation feature, multiple fans insideeach front seat blow air upward through theperforated leather, helping to keep you feelingfresh and your clothes free of perspiration.Active Cruise Control.My friend has a  Series Sedan that is equippedwith Active Cruise Control. How is this differentfrom regular cruise control?Let’s say you’re on a congested highway –slow-moving traffic that’s more stop than go.It’s a situation no driver relishes. But with ActiveCruise Control, it’s a whole different story. Assoon as the vehicle ahead of you stops, yourBMW also comes to a smooth, controlled halt.Once traffic starts moving again, so does yourBMW, as if it had eyes of its own. And it does:a radar sensor monitors the area in front of thecar. Its visual range extends from just in front ofthe bumper to  feet ahead – more than oneand one-half football fields – because ActiveCruise Control is not just for slow traffic. It alsoworks at higher speeds, up to  mph. Thesystem also includes the Forward CollisionWarning feature, which uses two warning levelsto alert you to a potential collision. BMW urges you to obey all posted speed laws and always wearsafety belts.SIXTECHNICALQUESTIONS.iPhone® and Bluetooth® connectivity.After taking delivery of my BMW  SeriesSedan, I got in, pressed the Start button, andheard my favorite song playing through thespeakers. Was this luck – or BMW wizardry?Once they are connected, or “paired,” the Series Sedan communicates perfectly withyour iPhone or any other BMW-approved,Bluetooth capable mobile phone. Your addressbook and the music library are also automaticallyavailable. It’s all thanks to Bluetooth wirelesstechnology and the hands-free equipment inyour BMW. You can access phone numbersstored in your mobile phone via the iDriveController or the buttons on the steering wheel.To start a hands-free call, simply press a button.BMW Parking Assistant.Every evening it’s always the same: searchingfor a parking space. I waste so much time andenergy trying to squeeze into spots that aretoo short. My client advisor told me that the Series Sedan has a Parking Assistant featurethat can not only find parking spaces, it caneven help me park. How does it do that?When you press the “Parking Assistant”button, drive under  mph and keep withinfive feet of the row of parked cars – on theleft or the right – ultrasonic sensors integratedinto the side indicators measure the size of allparking spaces. If you pass a space that’s atleast four feet longer than your vehicle, a greenlight will come on, and it will appear on yourControl Display. Put your vehicle in reversegear, take your hands off the steering wheel,and press the accelerator or brake pedal.The  Series Sedan takes care of everythingelse. Park Distance Control or the Rear-viewCamera will always let you know how closeyou are to other parked vehicles.Get the latest information on BMW standard and optional features,packages and technical specifications.
