The increased wheelbase of 20 mm enhances rear passenger comfort. The 2024 BMW 5 Series promises both sporty performance and refined elegance on the road.
The new 2024 BMW 5 Series is a perfect blend of driving pleasure and travel comfort, exuding a captivating innovative flair. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the interior boasts a clear and modern design, effortlessly combining sporty flair with innovative equipment features that are specifically designed to optimize travelling comfort.

This system enables attentive hands-free driving up to 130 km/h, continuously monitoring the driver's attention via an interior camera. Another ground-breaking feature is the eye-activated Active Lane Change.
