2018 BMW 5 Series Technology Review

If you're looking for a full-size sedan to cruise around the streets of Manhattan, the Bronx, and   Queens, you deserve only the highest quality vehicle. Plenty of sedans look great and perform fairly well, but the real attraction of the modern vehicle is its technology. Touchscreen interfaces on the center console are just the beginning. You deserve a vehicle that offers much more.

The technology of the 2018 BMW 5 Series is state of the art, designed to give you the premier driving experience that few other cars can rival. Learn more about the incredible technology of the 2018 BMW 5 Series, and how its safety, performance, and entertainment tech can deliver you a driving experience like never before. Test drive a 5 Series today!


Technology can do a lot to make a car fun, but the most important aspect of any vehicle is safety. A great deal goes into the construction of cars to make them redirect kinetic energy from any sudden accident around you, but with modern technology, your car can go to impressive lengths to prevent collisions altogether. The 5 Series includes this tech with features like an impact sensor that automatically disconnects the battery from the alternator, fuel pump, and starter in the event of a collision.

Arguably, the most significant piece of safety tech is the Active Protection System. This system can detect imminent collisions and prepares the car automatically by pre-tensioning safety belts, closing all the windows, and even activating post-crash braking. If the worst does come to pass when you're driving, you can be confident that the 5 Series will keep you safe.


BMW masterfully engineered the 5 Series to respond to your every command. The Integral Active Steering feature drastically improves your maneuverability. When you're traveling at high speeds, the rear wheels turn alongside the front wheels. This stabilizes the car, and you and your passengers will feel the difference.

You can also enjoy Dynamic Damper Control, putting full control of the shock absorbers in your hands. Whether you want a smooth ride or a sporty cruise, the 5 Series can oblige, and you can switch back and forth as often as you like.


The most obvious example of tech in any modern car is in the center console. The 5 Series doesn't have your typical infotainment system, however. It comes with the iDrive 6.0. This innovative infotainment system features natural language understanding for superior voice recognition. If you don't like talking to your car, you can use the Optional Gesture Control to navigate your system.

Don't think your rear passengers are left out, though. The 5 Series features an available rear seat entertainment professional system. This includes high resolution screens on the backs of the driver and passenger seats. You can also get a Harman Kardon©, or Bowers and Wilkins Surround Sound system to deliver studio quality sounds every time you drive.
