The different trim levels available for the 5 Series are linked to powertrains, and moving up adds power and a few extra available options. Trims start with the four-cylinder 530i, followed by the hybrid 530e iPerformance and the six-cylinder 540i. At the top of the range is the M550i xDrive, an all-wheel-drive-only performance variant with extra standard equipment. All have an eight-speed automatic transmission as standard. All-wheel drive (called xDrive) is available for the 530i, 530e and 540i.
The base 530i is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine (248 hp, 258 lb-ft of torque), and comes relatively well equipped. Standard equipment highlights include LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, automatic wipers, a sunroof, power-adjustable front seats, BMW's SensaTec simulated leather upholstery, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, front-seat memory settings and dual-zone automatic climate control. The iDrive infotainment system has a 10.2-inch display, navigation, voice and gesture controls, and comes standard with a 12-speaker sound system.
A number of packages are available for the 5 Series. Among the most important are three active safety feature and driver aid upgrade packages. The Driving Assistance package adds a rearview camera, a head-up display, and front and rear parking sensors. The Driving Assistance Plus package adds a top-down parking camera system and some important features such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and frontal collision warning with pedestrian detection. Finally, the Driver Assistance Plus II package includes adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, and uses the features added in the Driving Assistance Plus package to provide a semiautonomous experience.
Other notable packages include the Dynamic Handling package (adds an adaptive suspension that works to improve ride quality and stability when cornering), the Luxury Seating package (upgrades the front seats to multicontour seats with heating, ventilation and massage), and the Premium package (includes leather upholstery, Wi-Fi, a wireless charging pad, satellite radio, automatic high beams, and keyless entry with a power trunklid). Two largely aesthetic packages, the M Sport package and the Luxury package, are available to add special wheels, colors, trim pieces and exterior design cues. Both have the options of 20-inch sport wheels with performance tires.
Stand-alone options include a power rear sunshade, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon stereo system or a super-premium 16-speaker Bowers & Wilkins system, Apple CarPlay compatibility, rear-seat entertainment with two 10.2-inch screens, soft-close automatic doors, ceramic controls, and a night-vision system. There's also BMW's trick Display Key — a key fob with a built-in LCD screen — that can be used as a remote control to park the car in tight spaces. Elements of the option packages, such as an adaptive suspension, a power trunklid, parking sensors and more, can be added individually.
Moving up to the 540i gets you the same starting equipment (aside from some unique design cues) as the 530i but upgrades the powertrain. The 540i is equipped with a turbocharged six-cylinder engine (335 hp, 332 lb-ft of torque) that BMW says will make the run from zero to 60 mph in a respectable 4.7 seconds.
The 530e iPerformance adds a standard rearview camera and a handful of items related to the electric powertrain — such as a charging-station finder. The plug-in hybrid is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine paired with an electric motor (combined output is 248 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque) that provides 16 miles of all-electric range and returns an EPA-estimated 29 mpg combined when running on gas.
At the top of the range is the M550i xDrive, which uses a twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine (456 hp, 480 lb-ft of torque) and exclusively comes with all-wheel drive. It also comes standard with the M Sport package, Premium package, multicontour seats with leather upholstery, rearview camera, adaptive suspension, the Harman Kardon stereo system, and unique styling cues both inside and out.
