The best luxury car BMW makes

by michael from cary, nc | May 12, 2020

I actually traded a 750i on this car. The 5 is a little smaller, less powerful, and has fewer features. It's also a lot less expensive, it drives better, and in my case it is quieter and has as good of a ride as the 7 did. It comfortably seats 4, 5 can fit, plenty of space in the trunk and it gets excellent mileage for the size of car that it is with a very powerful and smooth engine. I have no complaints. I've had no issues with the car.

Best car I've owned.

I own a 2018 540D Drive M sport. Currently have 6,000 miles on her. Absolutely amazing car. The ride is incredibly smooth and great handling. I opted for the dynamic handling package (adaptive drive) along with a long list of options. I've owned 10 previous BMW's and this without a doubt has raised the bar considerably. Watch others try and catch up over the years ahead.

Great overall driving experience

handling, acceleration, creature features great. My 5th purchase of a BMW product. They just keep getting better. It makes my driving experience pleasurable. Love the heads-up display.
