Dynamic Performance from the Start, Driving Pleasure in Perfection

Asian Carmakers Corporation, the official distributor of BMW cars in Philippines, recently marked the arrival of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan. Through its sporting and elegant looks, the new F10 5 Series Sedan is the epitome of aesthetic design and supreme driving pleasure in the upper midrange segment. This sixth generation of BMW's executive express convincingly reflects the supreme standard of the world's most successful manufacturer of premium cars throughout the entire process of development.

Asian Carmakers Corporation will be initially offering the BMW 523i, which will retail at P5.39M and the BMW 523i Executive at P5.59M.
With the longest wheelbase in the segment, a long and sleek engine compartment lid, short overhangs front and rear and a coupé-like, graceful roofline, the new BMW 5 Series Sedan stands out from the competition. Overall, the aesthetic looks of the car are clearly determined by perfectly balanced proportions. Design features typical of BMW are to be found both at the front with its BMW kidney grille inclined slightly forward and on the strikingly chiseled engine compartment lid, in the stylish and elegant side view of the car, and on the muscular rear end. Within the interior modern function and a superior ambience come together in perfect harmony, unmistakable style and clear orientation to the driver in the cockpit guaranteeing a truly unique driving and traveling experience.

The most advanced drivetrain and suspension technologies ensure supreme sportiness and an even higher standard of motoring comfort all in one. At the same time optional Dynamic Driving Control enables the driver to set the suspension individually to his personal requirements.

BMW EfficientDynamics technologies are naturally featured as standard in appropriate combinations on each model, with features such as Brake Energy Regeneration, a gearshift point indicator, and on-demand operation of ancillary units. Features made of aluminum; such as the doors, engine compartment lid, front side panels and suspension components ensure intelligent lightweight construction. The BMW 523i also has the lowest carbon emissions in its segment, combining performance and efficiency.

The new BMW 5 Series Sedan will be available at all BMW showrooms beginning 18 June 2010.
