General info

1.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
2.Has fully independent suspension
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
3.basic warranty (km)

80 000km

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
4.drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
5.Is a hybrid car
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.
6.basic warranty (years)

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

Dimensions

1.cargo volume

283l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
2.maximum headroom (front)

1.03m

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
3.height

1.46m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.maximum headroom (rear)

972mm

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
5.interior volume

3171l

A larger interior volume makes for a more comfortable driving experience, giving more space for you and your passengers.
6.width

1.86m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.27Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

5.7s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

10.2l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
2.maximum torque

330Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
3.fuel economy (highway)

7.8l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.horsepower

335hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has Stop-Start system
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.
6.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
2.Has in-car system
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
3.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
4.Has smart key as standard
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
5.Has regenerative braking
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.
6.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
