BMW Serie 5

BMW Serie 5

Generation 5

The development programme for the E60 began in 1997, concluding in 2003. The final design, penned by David Arcangeli under the director Chris Bangle, was approved in 2000 and German design patents filed on April 16, 2002.

BMW Serie 5

While the predecessor was similar to 7 series, E60 was different from any other BMW ever made. E60 is longer, wider, heavier and higher than previous model, that translates into more space and 520 litre boot. New car came with completely different design language, body is much rounder while the interior isn't driver-oriented like in E39, new interior is flat like in E65 7 series with LCD display, basic buttons and iDrive system.

BMW Serie 5

The E60 received much acclaim from the automotive community, prompting aftermarket companies that specialized in BMW modifications, to produce aftermarket parts for the E60. Companies produced copies of the M-Sport parts for the E60. Harmann, AC Schnitzer, Hartge, Dinan parts also started to flood the market as these companies realized the parts were in high demand. Soon enough, many companies started to make replica parts that were being produced, again due to the high demand for inexpensive quality parts. Furthermore, many performance companies also started to produce parts to increase the power of the already swift E60.

BMW Serie 5

During its lifetime E60/61 used 24 different engines in 13 models. 528i and 535i were available only in North America with rear-wheel drive or xDrive system. First straight-4 engine used in this five series was the 2-litre M47 diesel engine introduced in 2005 520d model. Fuel capacity of E60/61 is 70 litres.

The basic model was available from the start of production. It used M54B22 engine from BMW E39, it was replaced by 523i in 2005. Two years later 520i badge returns with four-cylinder N43 engine which was more efficient while producing same amount of power.

A derivative of the E60 is the E63/E64 which forms the iteration of the 6 Series coupe. A factory-stretched long-wheelbase version of the E60 5-Series was offered in China, as a response to the Audi A6 L. It offered much of the rear legroom of a large executive saloon (e.g. BMW 7-Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class), but in a cheaper, simpler model. As of 2009, trim levels included the 520Li, 523Li, 525Li, and 530Li.

E60 body was made using aluminium for the front of the car, and steel for the passenger cabin and rear thus making 50:50 weight balance. E60 was available with BMW's xDrive system in 525xi, 528xi, 530xi, 535xi, 525xd and 530xd models.

Initially the 5-series received a three-star rating for adult occupants. However changes were made to the steering column, footrest, door trims, door latch, airbags and electronic software and the car was retested achieving its four-star rating. BMW claims the modifications improved the car's EuroNCAP score, not the vehicle's safety; consequently BMW chose not to recall the earlier-built cars.

BMW Serie 5 Gran Turismo

The American Insurance Institute of Highways Safety (IIHS) gives the 5-series a "Good" overall rating in frontal collisions but a "Marginal" overall rating for side impact collisions. The IIHS reported their side impact test would likely cause driver related rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries. The IIHS tests were conducted on models built after May 2007; these models had modifications to improve side impact safety.
