A well-balanced blend of sheer power, innovative technology and quality craftsmanship ensure the 5 Series Sedans and Sports Wagon continue to garner legions of loyal fans -- and awards. Its graceful beauty and athletic contours command attention, while handsome new wheel designs for 2010 hint at its sportier side.
Two inline six-cylinder engine options deliver muscular performance with excellent fuel efficiency. The 528i and 528i xDrive are smoothly propelled by a 230-hp engine with 200 lb-ft of torque,while an awe-inspiring 300-hp twin-turbo with 300 lb-ft of torque rockets the 535i and 535i xDrive. The 550i offers both a360-hp V-8 and an optional Sport Package designed to thrill driving enthusiasts. All offer a choice of two smooth-shifting manual or STEPTRONIC automatic 6-speed transmissions. The 535i and 550i also offeran optional Sport Automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
In the 5 Series, aluminum construction in the front end and suspension contributesto its near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, for crisp, responsive handling. Optional Active Steering improves handling dynamics based on vehicle speed. And the 528i xDrive and 535i xDrive come equipped with BMW's intelligent xDrive all-wheel drive for optimum traction in virtually any condition.
Five adults sit comfortably in the luxurious and inviting interior, personalized in your choice of beautiful upholstery and wood trim colors. The Sedan offers abundant trunk space; in the Sports Wagon, the wheel wells do not intrude into the cabin,creating a wide, flat floor that easily accommodates oversize items. Under the cargo floor is a hidden storage area with interlocking dividers that allow safe and convenient transport of small items.
Inside and out, the performance, luxury, comfort and convenience features of the 2010 BMW 5 Series add up in a big way.
