BMW 5 Series: Turning Heads For Over 30 Years
You could argue that the BMW 5 Series lineup truly represents the perfect sedan. A thoughtfully engineered combination of performance and luxury has given the 5 Series an unquestionable edge since its official debut back in 1972. Several things have changed over the past thirty years, but one thing remains the same: The BMW 5 Series lineup continues to be the luxurious and high performance vehicle of choice for consumers seeking the best of both worlds.
As stated previously, we know over time the BMW 5 Series has gone through quite a few changes, as most vehicles do. From 1994 and ’95 when a V8 power source was offered, to 1999 when the wagon became available, the lineup has introduced many features and styles. BMW continues to attract more loyal fans than ever with the 5 Series lineup. In fact, one of the most popular pre-owned BMW 5 Series generations is the fourth generation offered from 1997-2003. Many enthusiasts consider this to be one of the best eras for the 5 Series. Whether new or pre-owned, the BMW 5 series offers exceptional options for those who are looking for quality.
Today, there is a plethora of features offered on every 5 Series model in our showroom. BMW 5 Series drivers feel completely surrounded by sound when they crank up the 10-speaker sound system. Drivers can also navigate with ease using the iDrive electronic interface. If that’s not enough, BMW 5 Series also offers a sunroof and advanced Bluetooth technology. Other features offer added convenience to drivers such as parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, night-vision camera, adaptive xenon headlights, heavenly 20-way adjustable front seats, and an automatic parallel parking system.
Of the seven BMW 5 Series vehicles currently offered, all come standard with rear-wheel drive, and an optional all-wheel drive. Performance is primary with an eight-speed automatic transmission occupying all 5 Series models. The 528i houses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder that produces 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
