Like all BMW models, the 2012 BMW 5 Series provides solid performance to its drivers. Its BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine gives the 2012 5 Series incredible acceleration. The vehicle can shoot up to 60 mph in just five seconds. The 2012 5 Series’ Integral Active Steering makes maneuvering easier when parking or driving around tight bends. Whether travelling at speeds of less than 30 mph or speeds of above 50 mph, the Integral Active Steering ensures that the vehicle makes all turns with extreme precision.
In addition to solid performance, the 2012 BMW 5 Series provides drivers with innovative high-tech goodies. The iDrive controller on the 2012 5 Series gives easy access to all functions in the vehicle including the navigational system, phone, music, and 7-inch display screen. The Parking Assistant on the 2012 BMW 5 Series uses sensors around the vehicle that search for the perfect size and place to parallel park. When a sport is found, it alerts drivers by illuminating a light on the side-view mirror and the Parking Assistant then proceeds to steer and park. Drivers are only responsible for the acceleration and braking.
The 2012 BMW 5 Series is also built with safety in mind. The Active Blind Spot Detection uses sensors to check for any blind spots. If a car is quickly approaching or is in a blind spot, the system will shine a signal in the side-view mirror. A five-camera system is also included in the 2012 5 Series. Two Side View cameras are located on the bumper and are displayed on the Control Display for more secure driving. A Rear View camera informs drivers of objects or people behind the vehicle and provides a bird’s eye image of the vehicle when paired with the two Top View cameras on the outside mirrors.
