I test drove the car at a local BMW dealer. The salesman who was new to BMW, told me it was a 6 cylinder. I corrected him and told him it's a 4 cylinder. he was shocked, since it was so smooth! Where do I sign? very smooth and power when you hit the sport mode!

2016 BMW 528 Overview


The 2016 BMW 528 carries over sans major changes for the new model year, but does add enhanced USB and Bluetooth as standard equipment.

From the outside, the 528 offers traditional BMW styling with its kidney grille up front, which is flanked by round, xenon headlights with dynamic auto-leveling on either side. LED fog lights and taillights come standard, as do heated, power folding side mirrors and a power moonroof which lets more light and air into the cabin. 17-inch alloy wheels come standard, while the optional 18-inch alloys sport a new design for 2016.

Under the hood, the 528 shares an engine with its 2-, 3-, and 4-Series counterparts, a 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 260 pounds feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic is the only transmission option; rear-wheel drive comes standard, with a 528 xDrive model also available that comes with all-wheel drive for added traction in inclement weather or poor road conditions. The 528 also offers auto start-stop, which will shut down the engine at stop lights to conserve fuel and restart it again when you release the brake pedal. Fuel economy is estimated at 23/34 mpg city/highway for rear-wheel models.

Inside, the 528 offers a comfortable, luxurious cabin that doesn’t skimp on the features. Enhanced USB and Bluetooth now allows a second phone to be paired, adds another microphone for better call clarity, and includes mobile office functionality which allows the system to read texts, emails, calendar reminders, etc. Also standard are power front seats, HD radio, navigation with a 10.2-inch high-res screen, iDrive infotainment with a touchpad controller, and leatherette upholstery. Heated/ventilated front seats are available as an option, as is a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system.

Standard safety features include six airbags, active front head restraints, antilock brakes, and electronic stability control. The 528 also offers lots of available safety technology, including adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, blind spot warnings, lane departure warnings, and a rearview camera.
