5 Series

5 Series

The 5 Series was redesigned and introduced midway through 1996 as a 1997 model. The new 5 Series models were available as a six-cylinder 528i or a V8 540i. Both models featured new engines, all-aluminum suspensions, improved brakes and available side impact airbag protection.

  • Style changes included a lengthening of the hood, a shortening of the trunk and covered headlights. The 5 Series got a new front-end, with the twin-kidney grille integrated into the hood.
  • The all-aluminum suspension reduced the unsprung weight by 46 pounds, providing better handling.
  • Borrowed from the M3, variable-ratio, variable-assist rack-and-pinion steering, was used in the 528i, while the 540i continued with recirculating ball, variable-assist power steering.
  • The 528i got a new inline six-cylinder engine with improved midrange torque. The 540i got a more powerful 4.4-liter V8 that offers zero to 60 times in the low-sixes.
  • The 528i was available with a five-speed manual transmission or the new four-speed automatic with Adaptive Transmission Control (ATC). ATC tracks the driver's driving style and road conditions, allowing the shift-timing to adjust accordingly.
  • The 540i models were available with a five-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.
  • Safety equipment included: four-wheel antilock disc brakes, traction control, nine-mph bumpers, dual airbags, standard side-impact airbags, three-point seatbelts at all seating positions, impact sensors that unlock the doors and activate the hazard lights in the event of a serious accident, remote keyless entry, two-step unlocking, coded driveaway protection, and a vehicle security system.
  • The 5 Series luxury features included automatic climate controls, power moonroof, 200-watt stereo, 10-way power front seats with power headrests, heated outside mirrors, heated steering wheel, and a right-hand outside mirror that tilts down when the car is in reverse to help drivers see curbs when parallel parking.
