First drive reviews for the 2017 BMW 5 Series Sedan have been raving over the vehicle’s revolutionary technology features.

Though the new 2017 BMW 5 Series Sedan will not offer much change in style or size from its predecessors, it will be loaded with state of the art technology. The 2017 5 Series is everything you’d expect from a modern vehicle update and more. It is lighter, faster, more efficient, and equipped with proto-autonomous technology yet to be seen in the public market. BMW Santa Barbara is excited for the release of the new 5 Series because it is just another demonstration of BMW’s ability to fuel the progression of the auto industry. The 2017 model is set to release in February, so be sure to contact BMW Santa Barbara where we will answer all of your questions and ensure that you are at the front of the line when this vehicle debuts for public purchase.

Leading the Technology Race

Multiple first drive reviews of the 2017 BMW 5 Series have made a point of praising the luxurious technology features added to this model. The infotainment system is more interactive than any previous system in a BMW. The 10.3-inch touchscreen display offers the unique capability of managing the system in more than one way. Through a futuristic concept, some commands of the infotainment system can be activated through physical gestures in front of the screen. For instance, when you twirl your finger, the radio volume increases. Though the language for gesture control is still quite limited, it is a really exciting concept that will continue to advance in further models of the 5 Series.

Another feature in the technosphere of the new 5 Series is Apple CarPlay available wirelessly for the first time. This offers a Wi-Fi hotspot, an optional wireless charging capability, and the latest BMW Connected services. One feature of BMW Connected is the ability to stream the 3D-view camera to your smartphone.

Though the concept of autonomous parking is not new to the industry, the BMW 5 Series definitely offers the most polished version. In addition to being able to park in perpendicular and parallel parking spaces, the 5 Series can also brake, accelerate, and shift on its own. So if you’re a technology nut who still values style, comfort, and efficiency, there is no better fit than the 2017 BMW 5 Series. At BMW Santa Barbara, our brand-trained sales experts are eager to tell you more about this model and any other BMW model you may be interested in.
