For decades the BMW 5 Series has been setting the standard for sports-sedan performance. How? By being elegant and exhilarating at the same time. By being fast and sophisticated.

With up to 456 horsepower on tap and available xDrive Intelligent All-Wheel Drive putting it to the ground there’s no question every 5 Series is a driver’s car. But make no mistake—every 5 Series is also a luxury car. So go ahead and indulge yourself. Watch the stars pass over the moonroof. Feel the embrace of the available Dakota Leather seats in the heat of a cornering experience you’ll only get from a car this well balanced. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a 5 Series that’s all yours. The BMW 5 Series. It’s turbocharged sophistication.
