The driving dynamics of the BMW 5 Series Sedan.

All BMW vehicles share one trait: incomparable driving dynamics. This characteristic is exemplified by the BMW 5 Series Sedan, in which every journey delivers pure driving pleasure.

BMW M550d xDrive.

The BMW M550d xDrive benefits from the unique expertise of BMW M engineers, with a special, fine-tuned powertrain, suspension and steering system. The end result is an automobile that offers an exhilarating combination of sheer dynamism, comfort and everyday usability.

Striking details underline the sporty character and set the vehicle apart, both inside and out, from other BMW 5 Series Sedan models − M genes included.

The M genes of the BMW M550d xDrive create an air of dynamic superiority at the very first glance. The sporty design stands out thanks to a number of distinct and exclusive details.

Even when viewed from a distance, the BMW M550d xDrive stands out from the rest. The specially developed styling of the optional 20" light-alloy wheels makes it easy to pick out in a crowd. Specific air inlets in the wide front air dam make not only for a cooler appearance, but also for an enhanced cooling function for the drive system and the brakes. Eye-catchingly sport exterior mirror caps in Ferric Grey metallic are more than equal to any headwind. Outstanding features at the powerful rear include the prominent ‘M550d’ model designation and the unique optics of the tailpipe surrounds in high-gloss black, which further emphasize the dynamic presence.

The M genes create a unique atmosphere in the BMW 5 Series Sedan: the symbiosis between sportiness and elegance ensures an exclusive interior ambience for the BMW M550d xDrive.

As soon as you’ve opened the driver’s door, the ‘M550d’ lettering on the door sill finishers catches your eye immediately. This feature underlines the exclusiveness of the BMW M GmbH, which is reflected by the high-quality materials in the interior − and by the sheer joy experienced by the driver. The M leather steering wheel provides a gripping sensation in more ways than one, allowing the BMW M550d xDrive to be under precise control at all times. Integrated shift paddles enable quicker, more comfortable gear changes for even more driving pleasure. For adrenalin-rich cornering, the made-to-measure ergonomics of the M sport seats guarantee stability, with the soft cloth-Alcantara upholstery offering both elegance and comfort in one. More sporty touches are provided by the M logos on the instrument panel and the gear lever. Elegance exudes from the Aluminium Hexagon interior trim, topped off by the exclusive flair of the BMW Individual headliner in high-class Anthracite.

BMW xDrive.

The intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel drive system adapts perfectly to even the most challenging road surface conditions, always offering outstanding traction. With xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) your car remains directionally stable and on track.

Responding in a fraction of a second, xDrive distributes the drive power flexibly between the two axles for optimum grip. In this way, xDrive combines the advantages of all-wheel drive – traction, directional stability and safety – with classic BMW agility.
