The 2019 BMW M5 packs a 600-horsepower punch kept in check by an all-wheel-drive system that greatly improves vehicle stability. But the M engineers must be sentimental folks because they’ve given the M5 (and new M5 Competition) a special rear-drive mode that brings to mind all the classic power-sliding M5s of yesteryear.
New Features and Revisions
The BMW M5 Competition ($110,995) is a new model for 2019. In addition to its 617-horsepower V8, this hyper-sporty M5 benefits from a more aggressively tuned chassis, firmer engine mounts, and lightweight forged wheels. Also, Apple CarPlay has been made standard in all 2019 BMW M5s.
