Model Highlights

The 2015 BMW 5-Series is available with 4-cylinder 528i, 6-cylinder 535i or V8 550i models, as well as with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. 528i models include a 2.0L 4-cylinder making 241 hp and 258 ft-lb of torque, with that peak torque achieved at just 1,250 rpm. The 3.0L 6-cylinder in 535i models makes 300 hp and 300 ft-lb, while a diesel option in the new 535d produces 256 hp and 413 ft-lb. The 4.4L V8 in the 550i generates 445 hp and 480 ft-lb.

Each of these engines is twin-turbocharged, with direct injection and BMW's Valvetronic system, which can vary intake valve lift to both save fuel and aid responsiveness, and each is paired with an 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission. Engine Auto Start/Stop also helps save fuel in stop-and-go driving by stopping the engine momentarily, then starting it smartly when you begin to ease off the brake pedal. An "Eco Pro" mode allows for more mindful driving, while a single Driving Dynamics Control selector lets the driver click between Comfort, Normal, Sport and Sport+ modes that coordinate throttle and transmission response, steering boost, stability-control intervention and in equipped cars, the Dynamic Damping Control suspension (which helps combine a soft ride with crisp response when you need it) and Active Roll Stabilization (which reduces lean in cornering). Additionally, a system called Integral Active Steering is available and gives the 5-Series sedan a more nimble feel by steering -- slightly -- with the rear wheels.

While BMW claims 36 mpg from the new 535d, those looking for even greener performance will want to look at the ActiveHybrid5, which pairs the 300-hp turbocharged 6-cylinder engine with a 54-hp electric-motor system and 1.3-kWh lithium-ion battery pack; the hybrid system delivers its power through the 8-speed automatic and it accelerates to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds. In other words, it's just as quick as the 535i, only more fuel-efficient.

The 5-Series lineup includes great seats in all variants; in front they're widely adjustable and especially good for taller drivers. BMW's iDrive screen-driven interface comes in all 5-Series models and it's been improved in recent years with more intuitive, streamlined menus and controls.

BMW's 5-Series models have traditionally touted some of the most advanced safety-technology features in the business, and in this respect the latest models don't at all disappoint. Options on the lineup include active cruise control, a night vision system, a head-up display, a parking assistant and Driver Assistance packages bring lane departure warning with collision mitigation plus active blind-spot detection and multiple camera views.

Either through the Sport Package or through the M Sport Package, sport suspension is available as well as larger wheels, an M Sport steering wheel and an aero kit. A 15-speaker sound system is available as an a-la-carte option, but those willing to splurge will appreciate the awesome sound of the 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium system.

All 5-Series models include dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing wipers, power heated mirrors, xenon adaptive headlamps, dynamic cruise control, navigation and other extras. All but the base 528i get a few additional upgrades, to Dakota leather plus power multi-contour front seats, a rear-view camera and park distance control. A 10.25-inch multifunction instrument display allows multiple gauge layouts depending on which Driving Dynamics mode is engaged.

There's no 5-Series wagon for 2015, but there is a 5-Series Gran Turismo (GT), which is a unique body style that is part wagon and part hatchback, with a somewhat taller seating position more like that of a utility vehicle. Back-seat space in the Gran Turismo is superior to that in the 5-Series sedan, with a better view outward and a unique 2-piece tailgate and folding rear seats add more cargo versatility and convenience.

Available packages on the 5-Series include a Cold Weather option that includes a heated steering wheel and seats, a Dynamic Handling Package and an Executive Package and Luxury Package, which both add ultra-premium touches like exclusive leather surfaces, ceramic controls, a power tailgate, upgraded wood trim and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Model News

The BMW 5-series returns for 2015 mostly unchanged other than a few new standard features. These include a sportier, leather wrapped steering wheel, LED foglamps and improved Bluetooth integration.

Value Writeup

The BMW 5-Series stands out as a traditional luxury sport sedan that not only offers strong, uncompromised performance but also some leading-edge safety and connectivity technology. Increasingly, the 5-Series has an advantage over most of its rivals in that it offers more fuel-saving measures than most other sport sedans, with items such as Auto Start/Stop, turbocharging, direct injection and a special "Eco Pro" driving mode combining to provide significant gains in gas mileage. A diesel model, the 535d, offers yet another fuel-saving powertrain option.

Otherwise, the 5-Series sedans offer more comfortable, refined cabins than other sport sedans, and the 5-Series Gran Turismo body style is a good pick for those who want a little more cargo flexibility.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.

The driver's air bag may unexpectedly deploy due to insufficient grounding of the steering components if an electrostatic discharge occurs and the air bag clockspring is broken.

Consequence:
If the driver air bag inadvertently deploys, it can increase the risk of injury and a crash.

Remedy:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will add sufficient grounding to the steering components, free of charge. The recall began in December 6, 2017. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-877-496-3691.
