The all-new 2012 BMW 5 Series is now available at local Oâ€™Fallon dealer, Newbold BMW.
Online PR News – 06-June-2012 – O'Fallon, IL – Newbold BMW is pleased to announce the arrival of the 2012 BMW 5 Series. For the 2012 model year, BMW has added a new base engine into the 5 Series to increase the performance of one the most luxurious sports sedans on the market.
The 2012 BMW 5 Series is available in three trim levels: 528i, 535i and 550i. The very fuel efficient 528i utilizes a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine to return 34 mpg highway, and still generate 240 horsepower. For the driver seeking more power but not wanting to skimp on fuel economy, there is the 535i. The 5 Series 535i is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 with TwinPower Turbo technology that produces 300 horsepower while still returning 30 mpg highway. The 5 Seriesâ€™ top trim, the 550i, delivers unrivaled power for its class with a 4.4-liter V8 generating 400 horsepower.
A hybrid model of the 2012 BMW 5 Series is also available, but this 5 Series redefines what it means to be called a hybrid. The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is powered by a Hybrid V6 and is capable of producing 335 horsepower and returning 30 mpg highway.
The 2012 BMW 5 Series features both auto start-stop technology and regenerative braking to increase fuel efficiency. The auto start-stop technology works by shutting off the engine when the vehicle is stopped, and as soon as the brake pedal is released the vehicle will re-start by the time the driver places their foot on the accelerator. The innovative regenerative braking system converts energy used during braking into power to help run the engine.
Safety continues to be a priority of BMWâ€™s and the 2012 5 Series is no exception. In fact, the 2012 BMW 5 Series was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Many innovative safety features ensure drivers have peace of mind while driving the 2012 5 Series. The 5 Series can be equipped with up to five cameras to provide drivers with a clear view of any situation. The available Head-Up Display puts important information like speed and turns directly in front of the driver. Other safety features include: active cruise control, active blind spot detection and BMW Night Vision.
The 2012 BMW 5 Series also delivers the technology drivers crave. The available navigation system guarantees drivers always know where they are going, and the available rear entertainment system makes sure all passengers are focused on something other than distracting the driver.
