2009 M5 Overview

The BMW 5 Series is the definition of a high-end sports sedan.Every version of the 5 Series puts an emphasis on driving and, in its market category, it is the target at which all competitors are aimed.This mid-size luxury sedan remains a true sports sedan in any of its variations.The same goes for the sport wagon and the all-wheel-drive models.Regardless of engine size or equipment level, the 5 Series delivers lively acceleration, precise handling and outstanding brakes.It's available with a conventional manual transmission, which is increasingly hard to find in this class.

The 5 Series line represents a wide range, from the BMW 528i to the 550i to the BMW M5.There's a wagon for those who want more room for cargo and BMW's x-Drive full-time all-wheel drive for drivers in the snow belt.

The BMW 528i boasts spirited performance, with decent fuel economy to lower operating costs.The BMW 535i matches some V8s with its 300-horsepower six-cylinder, while the V8-powered BMW 550i delivers true high performance by any definition.The limited-production M5 can out-accelerate, out-brake and out corner some expensive sports cars, with comfortable seating for five.

The 5 Series is loaded with the technology that's made it a benchmark for critics and auto industry engineers alike, and some of its systems and features have a dark side.The i-Drive point-and-click control system, for example, takes time and patience to learn, and drivers who aren't willing to take the time, or those who just prefer things simple, might want to look at another car.

However, those who put driving satisfaction first should put the 5 Series near the top of their test-drive list.

For 2009 there are only minimal changes.A new M Sport Package is available on all versions of the 5 Series, and includes package-specific wheels, seats, aluminum trim, steering wheel and a body kit.When ordered on sedans without the all-wheel-drive xDrive, it also includes Active Roll Stabilization and Sport Suspension.There are also seven new buttons arranged with the i-Drive, to allow quicker access to the radio, cd-multi-media function, phone, navigation and other features.The current-generation 5 Series was launched for the 2004 model year and received a major update for 2008.
