The 2021 BMW M5 is a high-performance variant of the BMW 5 Series sold under the BMW sub-brand. BMW is updating its 600 hp luxury sedan with more intake, more technology, and no more power. The new variant will receive the M5 CS designation, placing the M5 next to other M cars that have received CS treatment. BMW also offers the BMW M2 CS, and there were CS versions of the previous generation BMW M3 and BMW M4.
Prototypes for the M5 CS have been tested for months and now we have the first details thanks to Markus Flasch, head of the BMW M division. In the announcement video, he confirmed that the M5 CS will have a maximum power of 635 horsepower, although this will likely be the metric rating used in Germany and could therefore be reduced to 626 hp when rated in the United States. By comparison, the regular M5 produces 600 hp and the M5 Competition 617 hp.
The 2021 BMW M5 has been subtly updated, but all of these subtle changes bring a new face to the 2021 M5 BMW. The front grille is much larger due to the larger kidney grilles with one piece of a chrome frame and a redesigned front bumper. The side profile remains unchanged and we love it. It has a proportional 4-door sedan design with minimal volume. The new BMW M5 is still a wolf in sheepskin! The air intakes this time actually work unlike the artificial ones found in the competition.
2021 BMW M5 Interior
The BMW M5 and BMW M5 Competition in 2021 are adorned with luxurious and elegant interiors. Ambient lighting, breathable and comfortable leather, and seats are sewn with Alcantara, an optimized steering column will add a pleasant driving experience. The most obvious change is the larger screens that are now located on the control panel. Both the digital instrument panel and entertainment screen are getting bigger at 12.3 inches compared to the previous 10.5 inches. And long gone are the days when in every setting you should set the desired one for a day filled with performance.
BMW has also added the latest iDrive 7 interface for the most intuitive experience in the M5. There are interior mirrors with automatic anti-glare function, and the hugged sports seats with the finest leather let you know that the M5 is always with “back” comfort. A few other design signs such as piano black and wooden decorations can also be chosen for your M5.
2021 BMW M5 Engine
The AWD 2021 BMW M5 is powered by a 4.4L twin-turbo V8 with 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This cute revolving engine only applies to smiles, and you’ll have a wide one behind the wheels of this Bimmer. Further, the M5 Competition is tuned to deliver 617 hp at a wider torque range. Transmission tasks are taken care of by an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission that works best when on track with shorter shift times and fast responses, just the way it should be. BMW is known for offering speed, “god” speed! The top speed limited by the governor is 163 MPH for the Competition sedan.
The 2021 BMW M5 can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.2 seconds and a quarter-mile in just 10.9 seconds. The 2021 BMW M5 is powered by an S63 4.4-liter TwinPower turbocharged 600 hp V8 engine. The M5 sedan achieves an electronically limited top speed of 155 km / h and 190 km / h when equipped with the optional M driver package.
2021 BMW M5 Safety
The 2021 M5 is based on the seventh generation of the 5 Series, which has become much better in terms of safety over the years. Driver assistance features have given a boost to 2021, with better, improved, and newer technology joining the list, giving you ultimate peace no matter the scenario. Another impressive package is the BMW Active Protection System, which helps detect unavoidable accidents and accordingly prepares the car to prepare and protect its occupants with the least turns. The outstanding adaptive cruise control system sets it apart from the competition.
Various safety features in the 2021 BMW M5 include lane departure warning with steering assistance, traffic crossing warning, pedestrian detection with automatic emergency braking, automatic high beam assistance, professional driving assistance package. The optional features offered on the 2021 BMW M21 are expensive and will face competition from other sports cars with an aggressive price in the industry.
