BMW 5 Series Review
First, a brief overview of the BMW 5 Series: This is a sedan that’s effortlessly comfortable and in control.
It makes a great first impression with its three different body styles: Sport, Luxury, and M Sport. With these three options, you can choose whether you want to dress your sedan to the nines or adopt an aggressive stance to stare down the competition.
It gives you a choice between three different engines, as well, to get the kind of drive you want:
- - 248-horsepower 2.0L turbo I4
- - 335-horsepower 3.0L turbo I6
- - 456-horsepower 4.4L turbo V8
With its V8 engine, it can take off from 0-60 MPH in as little as 3.9 seconds under ideal conditions. Plus, you get all this power with an impressive BMW 5 Series MPG rating.
You’ll also have the aid of the Active Drive Assistant system as you cruise around town, which comes with the following smart safety technologies:
- - Daytime Pedestrian Protection
- - Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation
- - Lane Departure Warning
- - Active Blind Spot Detection
Inside the cabin, you’ll find even more luxury and technology, including the iDrive 6.0 infotainment system with gesture commands. This lets you change the radio station with a wave of your hand, as if by magic.
The BMW 5 Series is a truly customizable experience, as you can see in its array of trim levels and configurations. In addition to its three different body styles, you’ll also get your pick of five different trim levels:
- - 530i Sedan
- - 530i xDrive Sedan
- - 540i Sedan
- - 540i xDrive Sedan
- - M550i xDrive Sedan
Every trim level corresponds to a different engine option: The 530 models come with the 2.0L engine, the 540 models come with the 3.0L engine, and the M550 models come with the 4.4L engine.
You’ll also see a differentiation in trim levels with xDrive and trim levels without. xDrive is the all-wheel drive (AWD) system that can boost your handling and vehicle stability when taking on tough terrain or tight corners.
The interior of the BMW 5 Series features a luxurious design with upholstery in Sensatec, Dakota Leather, or Nappa Leather. These come in colors like:
- - Night Blue
- - Black with Blue contrast stitching
- - Mocha with Cognac contrast stitching
- - Canberra Beige
- - Ivory White with Dark Coffee contrast stitching
You can also decorate your BMW 5 Series interior with a variety of trims, including Gray Poplar Wood, Burl Walnut, and Fineline Cove. This gives your cabin an extra level of depth and luxury.
To really make those colors and trims pop, go for the 2-way power glass moonroof and let in even more natural light.
