2018 BMW 530i

BMW 530i

Calling the 2018 BMW 530i a "base model" is a gross understatement of what this car has to offer. Available with either standard rear-wheel drive or BMW's xDrive All-Wheel-Drive system, the 2018 530i is powered by a very capable, yet relatively unassuming, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder good for 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Gas mileage is impressive for a sedan of this size: the 530i is rated at up to 24 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.

BMW 530e iPerformance

The new BMW 530e iPerformance was recently added to the lineup just last year. This plug-in hybrid 5 Series sedan pairs a 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder to a 111-horsepower electric motor and a high-voltage lithium-ion battery, for a total combined output of 248 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of low-end torque. Fuel-economy ratings for the 2018 BMW 530e are impressive, at up to 117 mpg-e and 28 miles of pure electric range.

BMW 540i

The BMW 540i significantly ups the ante for performance. The standard 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 delivers a notable improvement to 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. BMW says that its 2018 540i model will vault from 0-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds; a cabin richly decked with premium options and tons of standard features nicely rounds out this popular option.

BMW M550i

The only 5 Series model with standard xDrive All-Wheel Drive, this stunning sedan is a standout from the start. If you have real need for speed, or at least a lot more passing power, consider the top-end, sport-tuned 2018 M550i xDrive. It features a robust 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that pumps out 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, and rockets from 0-60 mph in a breath-taking 3.9 seconds. The suspension, transmission, wheels and brakes have all been optimized to enable the M550i xDrive to deliver optimal results, whether opening it up on the highway or piloting the sedan around winding, backcountry roads.

Whether you plan to rely on your new 2018 BMW 5 Series for your daily commute from Overland Park or Olathe to downtown Kansas City--or for longer road-trips east to St. Louis, or even out west to Colorado, the new 5 Series will get you there in style and comfort. In fact, the 5 Series is such a pleasure to drive you may even find yourself hunting for the long way home.
