The M’s dashboard is all but identical to that of a standard 5 Series, but there are two M buttons located on its fat-rimmed sports steering wheel, which can be programmed to provide separate comfort or performance settings at the press of a button. Additionally, a horseshoe arrangement of switches clustered around the gearstick provides access to gearshift speed selection, suspension and steering weight settings.
BMW M5 Saloon space & practicality
The beauty of the M5 lies in its ability to deliver crushing performance one moment and in the next breath carry four adults in sublime comfort. There’s plenty of leg-, head- and elbow room, while a 520-litre boot provides plenty of space for luggage.
BMW M5 Saloon equipment
The M5 comes with four electric windows, climate control, steering wheel-mounted controls for the stereo, cruise control, a multi CD player and BMW’s i-Drive controller. Full leather sports seats and a head-up display, that projects vital information on to the windscreen in the driver's line of sight is also standard.
