What it is: The BMW 5 Series is a mid-size luxury sedan that was redesigned last year. It competes with cars such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6.
Plug-in hybrid and M Performance models have arrived. The M550i has a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 that makes 456 horsepower, while the 530e iPerformance has a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that combines a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor. The rest of the lineup sees minor trim and packaging changes, including a newly available Dynamic Handling Package for the 530i and 530e.
BMW has redesigned the middle child of its sedan lineup, the 5 Series. This storied nameplate has an evolutionary redesign, typical of BMWs of late. We got up close to the 2018 5 Series at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
