    • New car launches are often about more and less — more features and power; less emissions and weight. BMW’s seventh-generation 5 Series, which was launched at the MES Theatre at Mediacorp on Friday (March 3), ticks all those boxes in spades.

      For instance, depending on the model and specs, BMW says the 5 series is up to 100kg lighter than sixth -generation models. 

      Two models were available at launch: The 530i and 540i. The former is equipped with a 2-litre, 4 cylinder engine producing 252hp, CO2 emissions of 141g/km and a 0-100kmh time of 6.2 seconds.

      The 540i is powered by a 3-litre, 6-cylinder engine producing 340hp, CO2 emissions of 164g/km and a 0-100kmh time of 5.1 seconds.

      Speaking at the launch, Mr. Horst Herdtle, managing director of Performance Motors Limited said that BMW sold 2.1 million units of its sixth-generation 5 Series. 

      “The seventh-generation 5 Series ... represents a technological leap forward and exemplifies our quest for modern mobility,” he said.
