BMW 5 Series Driving Poise and Performance

Look under the hood of the 2020 BMW 5 Series and you'll find the standard 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo engine. It generates 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It works with an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission and an Auto Start-Stop function to achieve an EPA-estimated 25 city/33 highway MPG.

Is more exhilaration what you're after? The M550i xDrive trim level comes with a 4.4L M Performance TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that kicks out 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. It can take you from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.6 seconds. Its xDrive all-wheel drive system-available on other trim levels-will give you confidence on slick roads.

One unique feature that comes with the 5 Series is Integral Active Steering. This available system lets the rear wheels turn independently from the front wheels. It will give you more maneuverability around tight turns and provide swift handling out on the open road.
