BMW 5series

In cars, as in comedy, timing is everything. If you happen to be at the end of your 36-month lease on a BMW 5 series -- or the one you own is a couple of years old and you're ready for something new -- boy, are you in luck! And the same could be said to anyone currently considering a Mercedes E-Class, Audi A6, Lexus GS, Volvo S90 or Cadillac CTS.

Why, you ask? Because the all-new, 7th-generation BMW 5 Series has just hit the Braman BMW showroom early instead of it's schedule of mid-February… and you absolutely have to see and drive this car.

The 5 Series was introduced in 1972 and is BMW's best-selling car behind the 3 Series. Code-named G30, the newest 5-series features styling sporty new styling that 3 Series owners will find familiar, along with an array of new tech features formerly reserved for the 7 Series.

At launch, there will be just two models, the 530i and 540i, either of which can be had with rear- or all-wheel drive. The former diesel, hybrid, and V-8 variants are all absent from our market-at least for now. The 530i replaces the 528i and is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged motor that puts out 248 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic with standard shift paddles is the sole transmission choice and helps produce 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 6.0 seconds. The new 540i is home to a turbocharged, in-line six-cylinder displacing 4.0-liter and producing 335 horsepower. 0 to 60 takes just 4.9 seconds.

Initially, the 2017 BMW 530i will be available for $52,195, the 530i xDrive (all-wheel drive) for $54,495, the BMW 540i for $57,445 and the BMW 540i xDrive model for $59,745. Three additional models, including the M550i xDrive high performance model and 530e and 530e xDrive iPerformance hybrids will be available later in the spring.

2017 models come with a higher level of standard equipment, including active LED headlights and 18-inch wheels. The four-cylinder model gets an all-new engine with 8 additional horsepower and the inline-six gains 35 horsepower.

Dimensions are all within an inch of the previous car, except for overall length, which grows by 1.2 inches, and weight-saving measures -- such as an aluminum trunk lid, roof, and doors -- have reduced curb weight by 137 pounds. Thanks to its larger size, the 2017 5 Series has a sizable 18.7-cubic-foot trunk that can be expanded via split-folding rear seats.

Performance options include BMW's Integral Active Steering (four-wheel steering), Dynamic Damper Control (adaptive dampers) and a choice of 18-, 19-, or 20-inche alloy wheel with standard run-flat tires are standard (although conventional 18-inch tires with a space-saver spare are available as a no-cost alternative). The M Sport package includes M Sport suspension, 19-inch alloy wheels with high-performance radials, an body aero kit, M Sport steering wheel, aluminum pedals, unique floor mats, and black leather with blue contrast stitching.

High-tech driver assistance options include BMW's new iDrive multimedia system with a reconfigurable 10.3-inch touchscreen and gesture control. A head-up display, two optional premium audio systems from Harman Kardon or Bowers & Wilkins, Apple CarPlay integration, a rear seat entertainment system, navigation, a 360-degree view camera system, automated parking assist, and wireless mobile phone charging are also available along with 20-way adjustable multi-contour seats that offer optional ventilation and massage.
