For 2013, the new 560-horsepower M5 joins the 5 Series lineup along with a number of minor performance and cosmetic enhancements.

2012 BMW 5 Series What's new for 2012? 
2012 BMW 5 Series

BMW created an all-new 5 Series for the 2011 model year, but the hits just keep on coming. For 2012, BMW dumps the 3.0-liter six in the base 528i and substitutes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four. With a bump in horsepower, torque and efficiency, this would seem to be a win/win/win for the consumer. However, Americans have been historically reluctant to spend big bucks on small powerplants. Hopefully, the dynamic has changed with escalating gasoline prices and growing awareness of global warming. The larger Gran Turismo uses 6-cylinder and 8-cylinder engines.

About BMW 5 Series

The 2016 BMW 5 Series remains the benchmark sedan for the midsize luxury- performance market. Earning its performance credentials over many years, the 5 Series continues to grow both its model range and its fan base. With models ranging from a $51,000 4-cylinder turbo to a tire-smoking M5 costing twice as much, the 5 Series offers a dizzying number of choices. Need something with more versatility? There’s the 5-door Gran Turismo. Looking for power and fuel economy? Try a 5 Series diesel or hybrid trim. You can find similar levels of luxury in a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6 or Lexus GS, but not the same performance. Conversely, the Cadillac CTS-V can challenge the M5 at the track, but not quite yet at the country club.

"I traded in my Dodge Charger R/T 5.7 liter Hemi Anniversary edition for this 528i X-Drive,M Sport. I am absolutely amazed by the power of the Twin Turbo. The switch from American muscle car to German technology was not easy, but it is also without regret. The sure-footed X-drive holds the road at all speeds. The craftsmanship and technological features are without peer. My only issue it the voice-activated controls for navigation and functions other than telephone are a little quirky. It may be I have a learning curve to master, but those things are items that worked a lot better in my Charger."

"For what this car cost it is not in my top ten. It rattles, has been in the shop 3 times and BMW still has not fixed the problem. I don't think they will ever fix the problem. My advice stay away and get something else."

Pros: "performance, comfort, interior/exterior design"

Cons: "none so far at 7,000 miles"

"I was looking to complement my Boxster with a sedan that offered comfort and performance. After test driving the 2013 528i model, I decided I don't need to look any further. Acceleration-wise, its about the same or perhaps even faster than my Boxster; the BMW engineers have performed a minor miracle with this 2.0 twin-turbo engine linked to a 8-speed trans. And the 528i is extremely comfortable (added the optional lux seats and some other convenience options) and way more fuel efficient (29mpg combined city/highway so far with 7,000 miles) Granted, the Boxster engine sound is pure joy to hear vs the diesel-like sound coming from the 2.0 engine. But the sound-proofing keeps all engine and other noises out. As for handling and cornering, the Boxster of course is in a different class, but the 528i handling is not bad for a 5-seater sedan . My other favorite aspect is the interior: elegant, functional and well finished. Overall, a great car experience."
