The new 5 Series transitions to a version of BMW’s CLAR platform that lets the sedan lose 137 pounds versus the previous generation. The 530i uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horsepower (185 kilowatts) and 258 pound-feet (349.8 Newton-meters) of torque. The engine takes the sedan to 60 miles per hour in 6.0 seconds or in 5.8 seconds with xDrive. The 540i boasts a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six that produces 335 hp (250 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm). The powerplant can reach 60 mph in 4.9 seconds with rear-wheel drive or in 4.7 seconds with all-wheel drive. Regardless of powertrain, this pair uses an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Even versions will come with amenities like adaptive LED headlights, iDrive version 6.0, and BMW’s Active Protection, Fatigue, and Focus Alert.
