2018 BMW 540i

BMW 530i

This entry-level model is well-equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder good for 248 horsepower, practical tech and connectivity options, ergonomic seating, and power everything. Available in RWD or AWD with xDrive system.

BMW 535i iPerformance

Available only in a Gran Turismo configuration, the new BMW 535i offers many similar features to the 530i, but is instead equipped with a standard 300-horsepower 3.0-liter Turbo six-cylinder engine. Available in RWD or AWD with xDrive system.

BMW 530e

This powertrain is one of the best hybrid-electric options on the market for a midsize luxury car, giving you the spirited performance of BMW's turbocharged inline-four paired to a sharp electric motor, combined with the legendary comforts of the 5 Series. Available in RWD or AWD with xDrive system.

BMW 540i

The mid-level BMW 540i offers an exceptional balance of value, practicality, and performance, and packs BMW's 3.0-liter inline-six turbo engine under the hood. It's one of the most powerful 5 Series sedans, and can sprint to 60 in just 4.7 seconds. Available in RWD or AWD with xDrive system.

BMW 550i

Want the very cream of the crop? The 550i xDrive boasts a standard 4.4-liter BMW turbo V-8 engine rated at 445 horsepower. It's the most-powerful 5 Series model, available only as a Gran Turismo (the way this engine was meant to be enjoyed--on long trips along open roads) and is flavored with the best of BMW features. Standard with xDrive AWD system.

Find the Perfect BMW 5 Series Model for Your Lifestyle

The new BMW 5 Series is available in two body styles for 2018--a sleek four-door sedan and a roomy five-door Gran Turismo; the former is more fuel-efficient and feels a bit lighter to drive, while the latter features a coupe-like design and impressive engineering, and offers slightly more cargo room. Raleigh-area drivers who must be able to pivot quickly to meet demands may prefer the flexible interior of the Gran Turismo model.

Regardless of body style, every new BMW 5 Series is built to meet the high standards of one of the world's best luxury brands. See why the midsize 5 Series line of cars has found its place in history.
