The new BMW 5 Series has arrived at Douglas Park, and it’s giving you more options than ever.
Not only are there the new BMW 5 Series Saloon and BMW 5 Series Touring, but both options are now also available as a
plug-in hybrid.

So with so much choice, how do you know which car is the best for you? Let’s take a look at what makes each car unique.


This iconic car has been leading its class since the 1970s, and continues to win awards year after year for its innovation, performance and style – most recently winning the luxury segment at the WhatCar? Car of the Year 2020 awards.

And our latest model is no different. Pushing its lead over its competitors – from the Audi A6 to the Mercedes E-Class – even further, the new BMW 5 Series Saloon sets today’s standard on space, practicality, efficiency and performance.

It’s perfect for business customers too, with the technology, entertainment and comfort to turn commuter miles into journeys of joy.

How does technology enhance the BMW 5 Series Saloon?

While every BMW has technology at its heart, the BMW 5 Series Saloon boasts some of our most impressive innovations as standard – including the award-winning Intelligent Personal Assistant.

Ever been on a long journey and wondered what the weather is going to be like when you get to your destination? Well, with Intelligent Personal Assistant you can simply say ‘Hey BMW’ and ask your car.


The new BMW 5 Series boasts all the attributes of the Saloon but adds elevated functionality and practicality

And just like the Saloon, the Touring stands ahead of its competition as a total package that delivers on performance, comfort and technology.

It’s the perfect car for those who live an active lifestyle as the increased space can fit in everything you need for your adventures – with room for all the family.  

How does technology enhance the BMW 5 Series Touring?

When you do head out, not only can you benefit from up to 1,700 litres of boot space, you’ll also have a suite of technology to help you reach your destination with ease.

Pack up your bags, set adventure in your sights, and let BMW Navigation with Real-Time Traffic Information show you the quickest way to your destination as it adjusts to live traffic updates.


Plug-in hybrids, along with all-electric cars, are the future of driving.

And BMW have been at the forefront of this automotive technology for years ­­– which is why the new BMW 5 Series Saloon and Touring Plug-in Hybrid deliver such an exceptional combined performance.

These powerful yet efficient class-leading cars can travel up to 37 miles in all-electric mode, switching to petrol for longer journeys while using regenerative braking to recharge.

And since the average commute is only 26 miles, these cars are also fantastic options for business use – not to mention the low running costs and 9% benefit-in-kind tax bracket.

How does technology enhance the BMW 5 Series Plug-in Hybrid?

While a plug-in hybrid is a little bit different (a vehicle which has both a combustion engine and an electric motor and each one is capable of powering the vehicle on its own.), it’s still a BMW. And that means it features our latest innovations as standard.

And as the BMW 5 Series Plug-in Hybrid is all about efficiency, we’ve added a few exciting bits of tech to enhance that even further – including the new Anticipatory Hybrid mode, which uses Real-Time Traffic Information to optimise fuel efficiencies.
