The 5 Series gains two significant changes for 2010. First is the addition of the newest iDrive system on cars equipped with the available navigation system, and second is the creation of a new M Sport Package that adds an Anthracite headliner, an exterior aerodynamic package with Shadowline trim, and M-specific wheels, door sills, footrest, gearshift lever, and steering wheel.
The 5 Series carries over largely unchanged for 2009. New 17-inch wheels are made standard on 528 and 535 trims, while the latest version of BMW's MyInfo allows subscribers to upload street addresses and phone numbers from Google Maps directly to their car.
The 525i and 530i sedans are two of BMW's most successful vehicles. Their powerful styling is matched by two new six-cylinder engines introduced last year. With more interior room than a 3 Series but less exterior bulk than the pricey 7 Series, the 525i and 530i comfortably fill the dual roles of being both performance and family sedans. Beyond their trademark styling and obvious social status, the BMW 5 Series sedans offer a number of genuine advantages, such as a six-speed manual transmission, the availability of all-wheel drive (525xi and 530xi) and the latest advances in electronically assisted suspension, steering and engine operation.
