BMW 5 Series

About BMW 5 Series

The BMW 5 Series enters its seventh generation for 2017, evolving the driving dynamics, premium amenities and stately style that have made it the benchmark among midsize-luxury-sports sedans for over 40 years. As is the norm, this all-new model has more power, less weight and has grown slightly. Just as relevant as the physical is the digital in BMW's executive sedan. Gee-whiz technology such as gesture control that recently debuted in the 7 Series flagship is now in the new 5 Series, and this model introduces cutting-edge features like the ability to park itself, no driver needed. If you still relish the act of driving, take comfort: The 5 Series offers more involvement than a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Lexus GS and Audi A6.

2015 BMW 5 Series

For 2015 the 5 Series gains more standard features, including a sport leather steering wheel, LED fog lights, and enhanced Bluetooth and USB/smartphone connectivity. Higher-trim 550i models now include Comfort Access, which enables keyless entry and starting, plus a hands-free trunk-opening system. The Modern Line has been dropped.

2014 BMW 5 Series

A diesel sedan is added, while new standard features include xenon adaptive headlights, navigation and BMW Apps. New options include adaptive LED headlights, a rear-seat entertainment system and two new packages: Luxury and Modern. The 550i gains 45 horsepower, but loses its manual transmission.

2013 BMW 5 Series
What's new for 2013?
2013 BMW 5 Series

For 2013, the new 560-horsepower M5 joins the 5 Series lineup along with a number of minor performance and cosmetic enhancements. Leading the list of changes is a next-generation navigation system with weather forecasts and crowd-sourced traffic information, newly available bespoke features from BMW Individual and a 45-horsepower bump for Gran Turismo variants sporting the twin turbo V8.

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.

2011 BMW 5 Series
What's new for 2011?
2011 BMW 5 Series

The BMW 2011 5 Series Sedan has been updated with revised styling that's stretched over a longer body. Engineers have added electrically assisted power steering and planted more power under the hood. Lastly,, the 528i xDrive Sedan and 535i Wagon have been scratched from the lineup this year.

2010 BMW 5 Series
What's new for 2010?
2010 BMW 5 Series

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.
