The available Dynamic Handling package adds some technology to enhance
the 2011 5 Series' inherent competence. It includes Dynamic Damping
Control, which electronically adjusts the shock absorbers, and Active
Roll Stabilization, which firms up the anti-roll bars to keep the car
flat in turns. BMW's Integral Active Steering is available as well. It
quickens the steering ratio at low speeds to make the car easier to
maneuver and slows the ratio at high speeds for increased stability.
This year, the system adds active rear steering, which turns the rear
wheels up to three degrees in the opposite direction of the fronts at
low speeds to shorten the turning circle and turns them in the same
direction as the fronts at highway speeds to further increase
stability. A Sport package also offers staggered 19-inch tires.
