Let’s start with the several different engine options available in the 2018 5 Series.

BMW 5 Series: (Almost) Endless Engine Options

We’ve mentioned this word options a few times already, and that’s because the BMW 5 Series has just that. With four different choices of engines, you’ll get the exact speed and power you’re looking for.

In the 2018 5 Series, you’ll find these different trims and engines:

  • 530i. The standard engine of the series, this turbocharged four-cylinder produces 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Not too shabby for the base model.
  • 540i. Move up a trim, and you’re looking at a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that achieves 335 horsepower, 332 lb-ft of torque, and goes from 0-60 MPH in just 4.7 seconds.
  • 530e iPerformance. The first of the two additional engines for the model year, this plug-in hybrid comes with a twin-turbocharged four-cylinder engine that has a total power output of 248 horsepower.
  • M550i xDrive. This powerhouse comes equipped with a 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8, which produces 456 horsepower.

The 5 Series also offers excellent fuel economy. With an EPA-estimated 24/34 MPG city/highway in the base engine, you’ll get to your furthest destination faster and with less stops to refuel.

Interior Design and Comfort in the 5 Series

When you’re looking for a luxury sedan, you’ll want an interior that’s both stylish, modern, and classic all at the same time. You’ll find exactly that and more inside the 2018 BMW 5 Series.

The first aspect you’ll notice about the 5 Series is the interior space. You can opt for the 20-way multicontour and massaging seats to give you and your front seat passenger the ultimate luxury experience.

Plus, we didn’t forget about the backseat riders. Even your tallest passengers will find roominess with about 36.5 inches of legroom. Feel free to load up the trunk with the whole family’s luggage with its impressive 18.7 cubic feet of space.

Technology in the 5 Series

Of course, you’ll want to know about the technology features offered in your luxury sedan. In the 2018 BMW 5 Series, you’ll find both entertainment technology features and safety features.

With a standard 10.2-inch touchscreen powered by BMW’s iDrive infotainment system, you’ll enjoy entertainment features along with a standard navigation system. Apple CarPlay™ is also available for convenient smartphone integration.

As for advanced safety features, you’ll find plenty of available driving assistance options. Such features include an available rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Monitoring. It’ll be like having an extra set of eyes while on the road.
