Reliability: An All-Time High

According to J.D. Power’s annual 2021 U.S. Vehicle Dependability StudySM, vehicle dependability is at an all-time high. Across the industry, manufacturers are placing a priority on making reliable vehicles, which is good news for drivers who are looking for a new ride.

The study ranks manufacturers based on the metric of problems per 100 vehicles (PP100). BMW was listed in the eleventh spot with 108 PP100—ranking well below the industry average of 121 PP100.*

With a solid ranking in this study, BMW is proving their worth as a dependable luxury brand. This rings especially true for the 2022 BMW 5 Series, given that the 2021 version ranked in the top three most reliable models in the study’s Midsize Premium Car segment.*


Safety Features

The industry standard for automotive safety has risen with most modern models, including a vast array of driver-assistance technologies. The BMW 5 Series comes with its own suite of safety features and driver-assistance technology that will surely help give you peace of mind on your commutes.

The 2022 5 Series includes a 360° shield of sensors and cameras built to help you drive as safely as possible. The standard rear-view camera allows you to back out of parking spaces with ease, while Park Distance Control includes front and rear sensors to help you avoid getting too close to other vehicles or objects.

Plus, there is an additional suite of features included with the available Driving Assistance Professional Package to cover the rest of the vehicle. These include:

  • Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation
  • Active Lane Keeping Assistant
  • Extended Traffic Jam Assistant

For added coverage, the available Active Protection System can use sensors to detect imminent accidents—and help prepare your BMW 5 Series for impact by automatically pre-tensioning safety belts, closing windows, and activating post-crash braking.
