At The Track In Testing
BMW 5 Series 2017 sedan
Trim Shown: 535 Gran Turismo
BMW focused on adding technology and on sharpening the handling of the 2017 5 Series redesign. The midsized luxury sedan is essentially the same size as the outgoing model, but BMW says it's lighter by 220 pounds and the rear seat and the trunk are marginally roomier. Engines include a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with 248 hp in the 530i and a 335-hp, 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder in the 540i, both mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is optional but standard on the V8-powered 550i. A 530e plug-in hybrid goes on sale in April and commands a price premium of just $200 over the 530i. BMW's gesture control, which lets occupants wave their hands to operate certain control functions, is optional. Available active safety systems include forward-collision warning and lane-keep assist.
