2021 BMW 5 Series Review

For decades the BMW 5 Series has been setting the standard for sports-sedan performance. How? By being elegant and exhilarating at the same time. By being fast yet sophisticated. And of course by being a BMW. Choose from seven models starting with the 530i and moving through the M550i xDrive. Integral Active Steering and Adaptive M Suspension are available for those who enjoy driving to black-tie affairs more than actually attending them. And for those who care about the world the 530e brings plug-in hybrid performance to a whole new level of elegance. There’s no question every 5 Series is a driver’s car. But make no mistake—every 5 Series is also a luxury car. So go ahead and indulge yourself. Watch the stars pass over the moonroof. Feel the embrace of the available Dakota Leather seats—while you’re in the heat of a cornering experience you’ll only get from a car this well balanced. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a 5 Series that’s all yours. The BMW 5 Series. It’s turbocharged sophistication.
The BMW 5 Series has the connections. BMW Live Cockpit Professional features a 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster and BMW iDrive with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto brings your compatible smartphone to a 12.3-inch Central Information Display. And with Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information you’ll always arrive on time. The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant is always ready to help. Just say “Hey BMW take me home ” or “I’m cold.” Or even “Is the oil level OK?” or “Where’s the closest gas station?” The BMW 5 Series. Totally connected.
Your BMW 5 Series comes with a full complement of airbags traction control and skid-preventing electronic stability-control systems. Plus every 5 Series comes with the Active Driving Assistant. Lane Departure Warning Frontal Collision Warning and Active Blind Spot Detection mean you can always drive with confidence. Add available Active Cruise Control with Stop and Go and your 5 Series will automatically move along with traffic—speeding up slowing down and even coming to a full stop if necessary. The BMW 5 Series. Sophisticated safety.
BMW 5 Series sedans come with a choice of four powerplants ranging from 248 to 523 BMW Twin-Power Turbocharged horsepower. There’s even a plug-in hybrid. All come with an eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission with Sport and Manual shift modes. BMW xDrive Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is available. And it gets better. Available Integral Active Steering enhances driving dynamics. It even engages four-wheel steering at high speeds. Available Adaptive M Suspension adds Active Roll Stabilization for less lean around corners. The BMW 5 Series. Sophisticated driving pleasure.
