BMW has a reputation for equipping all of its models, like the 5-Series, as luxury cars, yet saving lots of appearance and tech upgrades for the options list.
All models have dual-zone climate control, power features, heated sideview mirrors, and rain-sensing wipers, as well as cruise control and wood trim. Base cars wear synthetic leather but most models upgrade that to real leather. Options range from navigation to dynamic multi-contour front seats to heated rear seats, HD radio, and a rear sunshade.
Safety add-ons include a rearview camera, parking sensors, and adaptive cruise control, as well as night vision with the ability to "see" pedestrians.
Audiophiles will stretch budgets for the amazing sound of the available Bang & Olufsen 16-speaker sound system.
With either the Sport Package or M Sport Package provide a sport suspension, upgraded wheels and tires, and an M Sport steering wheel, plus other dress-ups and additional features.
A new multifunction instrument display, with multiple gauge layouts depending on which Driving Dynamics mode you're in, is now included in all models.
