Great smooth ride

by Stephenj619 from Temecula, ca on Tue Nov 14 2017

The BMW 530 was a smooth ride nice interior plenty of leg room in front and in the back. Has plenty of power and shifts amazingly through the gears. The only downside is the exterior styling I feel has not been updated in several years for most BMW models and lacking. Overall great car.

Coolest looking with lots of technology

by rose307 from Riverview, FL on Sat Nov 25 2017

This is a huge upgrade from the F10 528i. There is plenty of room for 5 people and the M Sport package makes the exterior as well as the driving experience amazing.

Car is more comfortable than 3 series. The driving experience is what you expect from BMW. Comes with nice options to add. Will highly recommend.

Our Take on the 2017 BMW 530

The verdict:

The 2017 BMW 5 Series is comfortable, quick and loaded with tech, but its "Ultimate Driving Machine" moniker is no longer appropriate.

Versus the competition:

The focus on comfort and accessibility has dulled the 5 Series into average status among luxury sedans; it’s no longer focused on enthusiast buyers but will likely be more appealing to the general public.

It's sad when something isn't as good as you remember it to be. Like a familiar restaurant that no longer makes your favorite dish or a favorite musician who can't quite hit all their notes in concert anymore.

That's how I feel after spending a week with not one but two BMW 5 Series sedans, the 2017 BMW 540i and 530i xDrive. Make no mistake: These are fine automobiles, nicer inside than they've ever been and chock-full of amazing technology (some useful, some silly). They're powerful, efficient, quick and smooth. But they've most assuredly lost the mojo that used to make BMWs sing in the hands of enthusiast drivers. In a quest to chase sales, BMW has made its products... Read More
