The new BMW 5 Series Saloon and Touring Sport models

BMW UK has announced the launch of Sport models for the 5 Series Saloon and Touring range.

Visually similar to the recently unveiled high-performance M5 saloon, Sport models feature a number of interior and exterior additions over the existing 5 Series SE variants, as well as a more ‘sporting’ ride thanks to M Sports suspension.

M Sports suspension features recalibrated dampers and stiffer springs as well as lowering the car by 15mm.

Externally, Sport models feature a new front bumper and a wider air intake for improved aerodynamics. The side profile has flared side sills, de-chromed window surrounds and 18-inch M Light alloy double spoke wheels. A new rear bumper and apron includes Park Distance Control.

Customers can also specify the optional M rear boot spoiler costing £135.

Internally, all Sport models come with a cloth/leather combination, plus aluminium interior trim on the dashboard, centre console and doors.

Historically, Sport models accounted for over 60% of the previous 5 Series variants, and the new 5 Series Sport models are expected to continue this trend, accounting for a similar ratio of new 5 Series sales.
