BMW 7 Series Recognized on the 2016 Wards 10 Best UX List
Those familiar with the BMW brand know that the 7 Series sedan is a staple in the overall lineup. It is the go-to full-size sedan that often welcomes new technology and enhancements before the rest of the models. The attention to detail that’s put into this vehicle definitely shows because it recently earned a winning spot on Wards 10 Best “user experiences” list during the User Experience Conference.
Refined 5 Series Chassis Design
By using more aluminum and high-strength steel in the chassis, the 2017 BMW 5 Series has dropped a significant amount of weight (up to more than 200 pounds) while also offering exceptional torsional stiffness. It also features an exceptionally low center of gravity. All of these contribute to an even more satisfying driving experience, combined with the long-distance comfort that drivers expect from a BMW sedan. The 2017 BMW 5 Series also offers some of the lowest wind resistance in its class.
Available features like Integral Active Steering and xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive can also make the refined chassis of the BMW 5 Series even more appealing.
Advanced BMW Safety Features
While past models of the BMW 5 Series have come well-equipped with advanced driver assistance features, the 2017 model offers even more autonomous driving and crash prevention advantages. New safety features available on the 2017 BMW 5 Series include:
- Lane Change Assistance
- Lane Keeping Assistant with active side collision protection
