BMW 5 Series Performance Features

  • Integral Active Steering: Adds rear-wheel active steering, so the rear wheels steer in the same direction as the front wheels at high speeds for better stability. At low speeds, the rear wheels steer in the opposite direction from the front wheels for a tighter turning radius.
  • Dynamic Damper Control: This optional feature can let you adjust the shock absorber settings to decide if you want a smoother or more sporty feel on Roslyn roads.
  • BMW xDrive: This feature is available on all 5 Series trim levels. It uses sensors to detect wheel slip and sends power to the wheel with the most traction to regain stability.
