  • 530i: The standard setup for this luxury sedan gives you the 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine. With its 248 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque, you can rule the city roads with ease. This is also paired with an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. However, you can opt for the xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) system.
