BMW is a German automobile manufacturing company founded in the year 1917. The company is known for its luxury cars all round the globe. It is one among the most successful manufactures of automobiles in the world with its BMW, MINI and Rolls Royce brands. The company's success has always been built on long term thinking and responsible action, due to which it has been able to establish ecological and social sustainability with comprehensive and clear commitment to conserving resources as a basic part of its strategy. BMW entered the Indian market as a brand in the d+ segment luxury cars. It has 11 car models available in India including BMW X1, BMW 3 Series, BMW 5 Series, BMW X3, BMW X5, BMW Z4, BMW Gran Turismo, BMW M Series, BMW X6, BMW 6 Series and BMW 7 Series.

BMW 5 series lies in the sedan segment and has 5 different variants out of which BMW 5 Series 525d is the mid range version. It is powered by a 3.0-litre 6-cylinder In-Line diesel engine, which produces a top 218bhp at the rate of 4400rpm and a torque of 450Nm for a range of 1750-2500rpm. It delivers a mileage of 10kmpl and has a fuel tank capacity of 70 litres . When it comes to the appearance, the exterior features of this car are very aggressive with a high belt line that makes the car look tougher and meaner. The interior design is also decent and complements the overall aura of the car. The 6-speed Steptronic automation in this luxury sedan offers three driving modes, one for each of particular driving style, traffic and weather conditions. The suspension and steering characteristics of the BMW 5 Series are meant for luxury and performance in both all wheel drive (like XDrive) and rear-wheel drive options. As this is a luxury sedan, it comes equipped with all the highly advanced comfort and safety features as well.


The exterior looking of this car is aggressive mainly because of the high belt-line on the bonnet. The front has a dual part grille with chromed horizontal plates. The grille is positioned between two rectangular halogen headlamps. The lower black honeycomb grille has two clear lens fog lamps to provide better visibility on road at night. Just like the front, the side profile of the car also gives it a luxurious appeal. The main beauty is the cant rail, which runs seamlessly from the A pillar back to find support at the rear cheater and the C pillar producing a sweeping curve. The car is available in the market in 8 amazing colours, namely, Deep Sea Blue, Alpine White, Space Grey, Cashmere Silver, Havana, Milano Beige, Imperial Blue Brilliant Effect and Sophisto Grey Brilliant Effect. BMW 5 Series has an overall length of 4841mm, width of 1846mm, height of 1,468mm and wheelbase of 2888mm. The front tread, in other words, the distance between the front left and the front right wheel, is 1484mm. Similarly, the rear tread of the car is 1496mm. The kerb weight of the car is around 1705kg while its gross weight is 2315kg.


BMW 5 series has plush interior features, which are simply awe-inspiring.

Wooden furnishing in the car further enriches its internal beauty. It comes with all high class accessories to match up with the sleek wooden trims that adorn the dash and the centre console.
