BMW M5 CS Has Individual Rear Seats

Selling price of the M5 CS is from RM885,000 before added taxes and delivery.

This is a feature we love to see in performance sedans. This new version of the BMW M5 most striking feature if you happen to see this car in the showroom (apart from its performance sheet) will be its interior where there is a seating-for-four configuration in black Merino leather with Mugello red accents and contrasting red stitching.

Equally important is that the two rear passengers have their own torso hugging individual seats.

No Lounging In The Rear

Not only super luxury cars like the Mercedes Maybach, Bentley Continental, Lexus LS and Rolls Royce models have individual rear seats as standard, but they are more like captain seats or full lounge chairs for some. With this M5 CS, it is an even better torso hugging seat against what you will find in the Porsche Taycan Turbo.

All Lightweight

The driver and front seat passenger as well are treated to new lightweight and electrically adjustable M carbon bucket seats with aggressive side-bolstering, integrated head rests and illuminated M5 logos. The rear passenger seats are individual seats which look very much like the front seats.

The headrests of all four seating positions are imprinted with a map of the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife which was integral to the M5 CS’s development.

The ‘M’ Alcantara steering wheel includes a perforated section with red background in the 12 o’clock position and lightweight carbon-fiber shift paddles with matching red trim in the cut-outs and on the back panels. Alcantara is also used for the headliner.

A lightweight black merino leather center console cover with red double stitching replaces the traditional armrest and together with the absence of the armrest area tray helps to further reduce weight. Red “CS” badging can be seen on the instrument panel and between the rear bucket seats.

The M seat belts feature BMW M tri-color stitching and the “M5” badge also appears on the velour M floor mats with bespoke piping and in the illuminated “M5 CS” badge on the door sill finishers.

Weight Loss

This CS has had a 70kg total weight loss over its stock M5 sibling. This allows its driver to experience a much nimbler handling.


Then there is the abbreviation ‘CS’ which is NOT ‘Comfort Sport’. CS is the symbol for “Competition Sport”, the designation for exclusive BMW M GmbH models with absolute racetrack suitability. So, this version of the M5 joins the ranks of the BMW M2 CS, the M3 CS and M4 CS are a part of this tradition. 

The market launch of the new BMW M5 CS will get underway in the third quarter of 2021 and in Germany it will be priced at 180,400 euros.
