Chassis.

Rigid and soft, light and hard, dynamic and safe – these are the contradictory requirements placed on the chassis of a BMW 5 Series Sedan. The double-arm front axle and the aluminium integral rear axle meet these requirements with ease.

More

Delivering unrivalled driving dynamics with unparalleled comfort, the patented integral V rear axle ensures that dynamic and drive forces acting on the wheel suspension are taken up by the wheel mounts, the rear axle subframe, the swinging arm and three track control arms. The BMW 5 Series Sedan also boasts self-levelling air suspension at the rear to ensure that the vehicle offers a consistent ride height and maximum comfort.

The double-arm front axle ensures wheels grip the road tightly. The suspension reacts quickly to absorb any uneven surfaces while the wheels follow every steering movement exactly. The aluminium structure eliminates unnecessary weight while increasing rigidity, and in the case of a collision, it absorbs the forces of the impact to provide maximum passenger protection. Sporty manoeuvres can be carried out smoothly in every driving situation without any unnecessary jolting of passengers.
