Competition has become a little steeper, over the past several years, in a segment of the market that used to be owned by BMW. As the quintessential mid-size premium sport sedan, the 5-Series once held special sort of iron grip on enthusiasts’ hearts and minds. While that slipped in the last decade, to some degree, as excellent models like the Cadillac CTS, Jaguar XF, and Audi A6 (and A7) eased in, BMW has smartly turned back the clock just a bit with the current 5-Series, cutting through some of the design clutter and all-things bloat that had crept in. And the 2015 5-Series remains quite in touch with its roots, with classic sport-sedan proportions and sharp, responsive driving dynamics in several flavors.
The BMW 5-Series is a mid-size premium sedan that slots in between the 3-Series, the automaker’s bread-and-butter model, and the flagship 7-Series. Now well into its sixth generation, the 5-Series blends a host of powerful gasoline, diesel and hybrid powertrains with a smooth ride and a luxurious interior.
The 5-Series stretches 193.1 inches long, 73.2 inches wide and 57.6 inches tall, dimensions that make it roughly the same size as a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, one of its closest rivals. Unlike the E-Class, the 5-Series is not offered as a station wagon in the United States.
No matter which model you claim as yours there are sedans and more upright Gran Turismo hatches, with variants that span from economical turbo fours and sixes up to a turbo V-8, or to frugal hybrid and clean-diesel models. And while those models do vary greatly, they all deliver a nuanced ride-and-handling package that eludes lots of other luxury mid-size sedans, good performance, and some impressive driver-oriented technology.

2015 BMW 5 Series Interior
That said, standard equipment is strong even on the base 528i. You’ll find rain-sensing wipers, power heated mirrors, xenon headlamps, dynamic cruise control, and a dual-zone climate control system all included. For 2015, BMW makes a sport leather steering wheel, LED fog lamps, and enhanced Bluetooth/USB/smartphone integration standard across the lineup. As well, the Comfort Access system is now included in 550i models.
Active Blind Spot Detection, a Lane Departure Warning system, Xenon Adaptive Headlights with automatic high beams, Active Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go (capable of bringing the vehicle to a complete stop for up to three seconds before driver input), and a new second-generation night-vision system with pedestrian detection (reduced in price for 2015) are all among the many tech options. An advanced backup camera and sonar parking assistant are also available, as is Harman Kardon premium audio.
As for the rest of the lineup, upgrades like softer Dakota leather, dynamic multi-contour front seats, and a hard-drive navigation system put the 5-Series in line with most rivals in terms of equipment, albeit a bit higher in pricing.
2015 BMW 5 Series Exterior
The look of the latest 5-Series models aren’t exactly an about-face, but they steered away from a controversial era in BMW design and brought back the more upright, classic-sport sedan designs that seemed to reach a couple of generations back. The 2014 BMW 5-Series gets some further improvements, with a more strongly outlined kidney grille, a sharper taillamp design, and LED headlights that are now optional across the range. Inside, the 5-Series isn’t quite cockpit-like, but it’s driver-centered, and we like the pushed-out corners and low, horizontal dash.
The 5-Series has been around in its current form for four years, although it signaled a change in look of BMW sedans a look that was mostly followed by the revamp of the 3-Series a couple of years later. So it still fits right into the lineup, with pulling away from the controversial BMW designs that preceded it and back into more upright classic-sport sedan designs.
Last yea BMW gave the 5-Series what was effectively a light mid-cycle refresh, with a facelift that included some new lines around the familiar kidney grille, plus a more aggressive-looking lower air intake below. There’s also a more dramatic taillamp design, and xenon adaptive headlamps are standard with LED headlamps optional. Also, side indicator lights are now integrated into the exterior mirrors. Inside, there are better coordinated exterior trims, and a refreshed dash appearance with a new iDrive controller and touch pad. Luckily, in all of this, they didn’t mess with the 5er’s near-perfect silhouette and stance.
All 5-Series come standard with Bluetooth connectivity, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, enhanced Bluetooth and smartphone integration, navigation, LED fog lights, automatic Xenon headlights, auto-dimming ambient lighting, 12-volt power outlets and an integrated garage door opener.
2015 BMW 5 Series Engine
The BMW M5, meanwhile, still makes 560 horsepower, though it’s now available with a Competition Package that lifts output to a heady 575 horsepower. It’s available with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed M-DCT dual-clutch transmission.
Those who want to invest a little more into being (and looking) green have a couple of additional options. The ActiveHybrid5, with a 300-hp turbocharged six-cylinder engine plus a 54-hp electric-motor system and 1.3-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, remains a strong-performing option. But for those who need to cover more highway miles, the indisputable pick for frugal types is the BMW 535d diesel model, with a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six making 255 horsepower and 433 pound-feet of torque.
The entry-level 528i is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder mill that makes 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. of torque. Only available with an eight-speed automatic transmission, it returns 23 mpg on the city and 34 mpg on the highway, making the 528i the most fuel-efficient 5-Series ever offered in North America.
The mid-range 535i uses a turbocharged straight-six that is rated at 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft. of torque. It logs 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway when bolted an eight-speed automatic transmission and it propels the 535i from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds.
Across the lineup, those engines are every bit as responsive as their predecessors, if not more so. And overall, the driving experience feels direct and connected. Manuals tend to be very limited in this class; but driving enthusiasts will find it noteworthy that most of the 5-Series models (except for the ActiveHybrid5, 535d, and xDrive all-wheel-drive versions) can be had with a manual gearbox. And with something called Driving Dynamics Control, you can select the right mode for your driving style and the conditions at the time from Eco Pro to Comfort, Normal, Sport, and Sport+ settings.
M5 aside, the most powerful 5-Series is the 550i, which boasts a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 equipped with BMW’s Valvetronic variable valve timing and lift system. Mated to either an eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual unit, the eight-cylinder mill makes 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft. of torque, enough to send the car from zero to 60 mph in 5 seconds flat.
