2021 BMW 5 Series

What's New For the 2021 BMW 5 Series?

With its predecessors as a basis for comparison, the 2021 BMW 5 Series has several significant components that make it quite distinct. The 5 Series features a 12.3-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system, which comes with Android Auto capability.

Beneath all the rather noticeable visual upgrades, there are significant upgrades within the car's power unit setup. For improvements on acceleration and fuel efficiency, the 2021 5 Series model has an electric motor. The six-cylinder model features 48-volt, mild-hybrid tech. An added feature of the 48-volt system is to provide the car with a seamless start-stop feature that allows the car to cruise with its engine entirely off.

2021 BMW 5 Series Is Impressive No Matter Which Trim You Choose

BMW offers three main trims on the 5 Series: 530i, 540i, and M550i. While the 530i is the base, it doesn't make any sacrifices in terms of luxuriousness. Perforated SensaTec upholstery with contrast stitching now comes standard. This trim has a lot of technology features, such as BMW's iDrive seven infotainment system, featuring a 12.3-inch HD touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. BMW's newly standard Live Cockpit Professional gauge cluster also uses a 12.3-inch display. Another nice perk is the 530i's standard Wi-Fi hotspot. For drivers who desire a more aggressive look, BMW offers a sleek M Sport appearance package.

Driving enthusiasts can step up to the BMW 540i. Aside from a more powerful engine, this trim also includes leather upholstery. Drivers seeking the maximum driving excitement will favor the high-performance M550i model. It has a bigger engine and handling enhancements.

The 2021 5 Series starts with the 530i, which has a 2.0-liter turbo engine that produces 248 horsepower. There are standard rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive on the models. Next is the 530e of the 2021 5 Series. It has a more robust 40 horsepower engine and a 33% bigger battery than its predecessor. The next step up is the 2021 540i.
