THE M PERFROMANCE DESIGN OF THE BMW M550d xDRIVE SEDAN.

In addition to selected features from the standard M Sport package, the dynamic appearance of the BMW M550d xDrive Sedan is further intensified by a range of distinct design characteristics. The combination of M Performance and the self-assured elegance of the BMW 5 Series flow into a car that has been designed for especially intensive driving experiences with a high degree of everyday utility. On the outside, details such as the modified air inlets in the front apron, the model designations in accent colour or the exclusive light-alloy wheels turn heads, while the unique atmosphere in the cockpit will inspire drivers with sporting ambitions.

EXCLUSIVE FEATURES OF THE BMW M550d xDRIVE SEDAN.

Even from afar, the BMW M550d xDrive Sedan can be recognised by the specially developed styling of the optional 20'' Double-spoke 434 M light-alloy wheels. Sporty external mirror caps in Ferric Grey contrast with the paint finish. At the powerful rear, the model designation in Dark Chrome and the unique optics of the tailpipe in high-gloss black underline the dynamic presence. Aluminium inserts with the model  designation arouse joyous anticipation of the driving experience to come as driver and passengers enter. The M leather steering wheel always lies firmly in the driver’s hands. The 8-speed Steptronic Sport  transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel is an aid to a comfortable and especially sporty style of gear changing. Providing optical accents in the  driver’s field of vision are the digital model designation below the tachometer and the exclusive M logo on the gear change lever.

M PERFORMANCE TWIN POWER TURBO INLINE 6-CYLINDER DIESEL ENGINE.

The engine in the BMW M550d xDrive Sedan inspires with its impressive power development and unique sound. It furnishes this M Performance model with remarkable thrust from the word go. This is due in no small part to the three-stage turbocharging process with variable turbine geometry. The M genes are borne out by performance figures: 740 Nm effortlessly catapult the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds. This impressive acceleration is accompanied by equally impressive efficiency: average fuel consumption is a mere 6.2 l/100 km, with CO2 emissions of 162 g/km. This combination of dynamic ability and fuel efficiency is unique in the BMW 5 Series.

THE M PERFORMANCE DRIVING DYNAMICS OF THE BMW M550d xDRIVE SEDAN.

The driving dynamics concept of the BMW M550d xDrive Sedan is designed with performance in mind. Increased driving pleasure with unlimited everyday utility is the objective. The high level of agility and precision in the handling and the balanced tuning of all components can be felt when coming out of every bend. With their extensive modifications, the engineers of BMW M GmbH have optimised the suspension and steering characteristics of this exclusive saloon down to the finest detail.

  • More dynamism: the lowered M sport chassis

    In order to translate the outstanding engine performance into impressive and authoritative driving dynamics, springs and stabilisers have been precisely adjusted to the high-torque 6-cylinder engine. Specific elasto-kinematics for the front axle guarantee impressive driving moments. Even more agility is achieved by the specially tuned M sport suspension lowered by 10 millimetres and the variable sport steering including Servotronic. 

  • More traction: BMW xDrive

    The BMW M550d Sedan has the intelligent all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive with Performance Control as standard. It regulates the variable drive distribution between the two rear wheels, thus achieving a unique level of dynamics, agility and traction. Whatever the road surface, the saloon follows every change in direction precisely with noticeably fewer steering corrections. To achieve the driving dynamics typical of M Performance vehicles, the system has also been designed with the emphasis on the rear wheels.

8-SPEED STEPTRONIC SPORT TRANSMISSION.

Transferring the power in the BMW M550d xDrive Sedan is an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission supplied as a standard feature. The specific M Performance tuning of the shift programmes has been specially adapted to the particular performance potential of the engine. Shift paddles on the steering wheel allow gear changing in sporty style. The transmission also features a Launch Control, ensuring optimum acceleration under all conditions. The compact build, low weight and the perfect interplay with the Auto Start Stop Function are also instrumental in significantly lowering fuel consumption and reducing exhaust emissions.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

  • Figures for the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected. Consumtion data is determined in accordance to the ECE driving cycle.

    The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.

    Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.
