The Borgward BX5 brings a breath of fresh air to the more compact SUV segment with its
youthful design and embodies classic SUV qualities, such as versatility, spaciousness,
comfort and off-road capability at the same time.
Dynamic elegance, sporty aesthetics and a strong character – these attributes characterise the BX5’s superior and confident appearance. The design originates from the Borgward Design Centre in Stuttgart. A committed team of designers works on consistently ensuring the high design quality and uniqueness of the young as well as traditional Borgward brand when developing new models. Typical brand design elements are the OCTAGON grille with the brand diamond and the side wing lines.

The design originates from the Borgward Design Centre in Renningen near the corporate head office in Stuttgart.

As with its big brother the BX7 model, the BX5 also impresses with one of the most spacious interiors in its class. The body’s wing line design is also transferred to the interior thanks to the dashboard being visually integrated into the door panels.
All the elements for the driver can be operated ergonomically and confidently in the centre console. The start/stop button (with keyless entry feature), gear selector with Tiptronic channel, buttons for the handbrake and auto hold and control panel with central turn and press controllers and direct access buttons for infotainment are all located here.

Smartphones can be extensively networked with the vehicle using the Borgward Connect Intelligent Connectivity System. The driver therefore has unhindered access to all smartphone functions. Conversely, smartphone apps give the authorised user specific access to the vehicle at any time and anywhere. Thanks to WiFi hotspots integrated into the vehicle, occupants can also log into the internet with end devices such as smartphones, tablets or netbooks.
Smartphone apps give the authorised user specific access to the vehicle at any time and anywhere. The fuel level, tyre pressure and oil or next service date can be accessed
remotely. The vehicle can also be located, opened or closed remotely. A tracking function and the vehicle immobiliser help in the event of theft.
Depending on their preferences, the driver has the choice whether they want to access and operate the infotainment menus using the direct access buttons, turn and press controls positioned in the centre console or the 12.3 inch touchscreen positioned centrally in the dashboard. The buttons and rollers on the ergonomic three-spoke steering wheel allow you to access various vehicle functions in the central cockpit display.
The central touchscreen can be operated like a smartphone display using different finger gestures and some of it can be freely programmed. The driver can arrange the panels to suit their preferences.
The body with its highly stable passenger cell and defined deformable barriers at the front and rear is the reliable foundation for superb occupant protection. Crucial body sections are reinforced with high-strength, ultra high-strength or hot-rolled steel. Should, however, the worst come to the worst, several load paths distribute the impact energy in the event of a head-on, side or rear crash and therefore ensure that the deceleration values that are configured exactly to the passive safety equipment are as balanced as possible.
The passive safety equipment unfolds its maximum protection potential. For the different kinds of crashes, such as head-on, side or rear collisions, alongside the belt systems there are also up to six air bags provided, which are activated as required depending on the severity of the accident and can dramatically mitigate the consequences of an accident on the occupants. These include two-stage hybrid air bags for the driver and front passenger, side air bags for the driver and front passenger and curtain air bags over both rows of seats.
With its comprehensive “B-Safe” safety concept the Borgward BX5 meets all the requirements with regards to maximum safety for its occupants, as is typical of the brand. Active safety features can preventively identify potential hazards and therefore help avoid accidents. The vehicle structure and restraint systems also give the SUV the potential to pass international crash tests and safety ratings with flying colours.
