BMW 530i

BMW 530i is part of BMW 5 Series cars. Powered by a 3.0-liter, 255-hp inline-six engine with Double VANOS valve timing, the 530i sets a benchmark for performance and agility.

BMW 530i is loaded with several innovative features

Active Cruise Control: It allows you to maintain a pre-set distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead in highway driving.

Active Roll Stabilization System: It is designed to reduce body-roll, or lean, while cornering. It improves the vehicle's suspension geometry (the degree of wheel angle relative to vertical).

All Season Traction: It provides better stability and control in slippery road conditions. The system continually processes data from the anti-lock braking wheelspeed sensors. Any time a rear "drive" wheel begins to lose traction, the system modifies the engine's electronic throttle and ignition timing to reduce torque. Dynamic Traction Control aids driving in deep snow or sand.

Dynamic Brake Control: Dynamic Brake Control is crucial in extreme braking situations and aids in providing the shortest possible stopping distance.
