2004 BMW 525 i 4dr Sedan Overview

BMW's 5 Series delivers just about everything you could ask for in a luxury sedan.It offers the features, comfort and convenience of full-size luxury sedans, the sporting character of smaller ones, and a better compromise between interior space and physical bulk.The BMW 5 Series has long been a big seller in the most popular, most competitive class of luxury cars.It's the benchmark for critics and auto industry engineers alike.

For 2004, the 5 Series is redesigned down to its aluminum wheels for the first time in eight years.BMW's premise for the all-new 5 Series seems to be more: more room, more equipment and more sophisticated technology, including BMW's controversial iDrive computer interface.Unfortunately, the new 5 costs more, too, and it follows the contentious styling theme introduced on BMW's full-size 7 Series.

BMW's smaller 3 Series may be the bigger seller, but the 5 is the company's original sports sedan and the oldest nameplate in its line-up.Since the 5 Series nomenclature was introduced in 1975, BMW has completely overhauled its mid-line sedan five times.The redo for 2004 is as extensive as any the company has undertaken.Because this sedan generates a quarter of BMW's profits worldwide, the engineers in Munich spared no expense in the redesign.

In a sense, the most important things haven't changed.BMW's 5 Series remains a true sports sedan in any of its three variations, the 525i, 530i, and 545i.All three boast precise handling, impressive power and outstanding brakes.Its appeal to luxury car buyers may ultimately come down to that new look.
