You can feel the sporty driving pleasure that the chassis of the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 transmits from the road directly to your steering wheel, while guaranteeing safety and the highest possible comfort. In addition, it confidently meets a variety of requirements: as taut as it is comfortable, dynamic and safe. 50:50 weight distribution between the axles and perfect coordination of the components makes this possible.
The aluminium integral rear axle isolates the road vibrations from the engine and allows more power transmission and comfort. This characteristic can be further refined with the optional integral active steering. The double-arm front axle ensures wheels grip the road tightly. The aluminium structure eliminates unnecessary weight while increasing rigidity, and in the case of a collision, it absorbs the forces of the impact to provide maximum passenger protection. Sporty manoeuvres can be carried out smoothly in every driving situation without any unnecessary jolting of passengers.
