Luxury and MPG

I love the 5 series and this is the best because it has all the comfort and power of the regular one but the hybrid makes it have great mpg

4.7

BMW Brilliance

The incredibly stylish and fuel efficient BMW 530e brings a ton of class to the roads. This is by far the most comfortable and good looking BMW I have owned to date.

4.9

Best vehicle I ever purchased

I bought the 530e to replace my Honda Civic hybrid and I love everything about it. It accelerates and shifts very smoothly and handles beautifully.
