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. And of course by being a BMW. Choose from seven 5 Series sedans starting with the 530i and moving through the M550i xDrive.

And for those who care about the world the 530e brings plug-in hybrid performance to a new level. With up to 523 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.
