The German King of Sports Sedan
European Car manufacturers have always been a tough competition to beat in any category of vehicles. Many European brands have been ruling the market in many segments of the car industry due to their high-quality production and innovation in vehicle design and features. Leading brands in these European manufacturers include the historically renowned BMW. Maintaining their position at the top has been a challenge, but BMW has remained consistent in providing great combinations of Power, Technology, and great Design. As always, this year, the BMW lineup has one of the best Sedan: The BMW 5-Series. The Combination of Performance and comfort brought by this sedan is absolutely amazing and extremely practical.
The BMW lineup has always been customer friendly in almost every category. We always get to see a lot of custom options and packages for the specific needs of the customers. The 5-series have been offered in different engine options to get the best performance according to your optimization. The 530i is offered with a 4-cylinder while the 540i is offered with a 6-cylinder engine. The top of the line M550i is the best in terms of speed and performance, which is thanks to the massive 4.4-liter V-8 under its hood. The new feature that is offered on the 5-series in 2020 is the 48-volt powertrain provided to increase the boost. All the power in each configuration is transferred to wheels through the Quick and efficient Eight-speed automatic transmission. The 5-series 2021 is geared more towards the comfort element than the beast performance that is expected of most of the BMW’s. The handling is a little light to give you a feel of comfort.
The Cabin of the 5-series gives the modern look of comfort and practicality. The front seats are an example of how BMW doesn’t compromise on comfort, as they are adjustable in 20 ways to make it suitable and comfortable to each individual’s liking.
The new 5-series include a very intuitive 12.3-inch infotainment system. The high-resolution display is complemented by the various options of connectivity: Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple Carplay. The infotainment system also works with gesture control and voice command.
With the new 5-series, we get to see some of the great safety techs included. The vehicle is equipped with automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection. To ensure that the safety standards are up to mark, BMW has included the Blind-spot monitoring and rear-cross traffic alert. The vehicle is also available with the adaptive cruise control, although this feature is optional, but with this year’s 5-series lineup, BMW is stepping into the world of semi-autonomous driving.
