2019 BMW 530

2019 530 Photos
The 2019 BMW 5-Series sedan follows on a long line of sport sedans that have set the benchmark for handling prowess.

BMW last redesigned the 5-Series in 2017. For 2019 it gains automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitors, and lane-departure warnings. The diesel edition has been dropped.

That still leaves four engines, counting the hybrid. The 530i uses a turbo-4 with 248 horsepower; the 530e hybrid adds an electric motor and 9.2-kwh battery. The 540i uses a turbo-6 making 335 horsepower. And the M550i xDrive uses a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 making 450 horsepower with all-wheel drive. All of these engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The 530i is EPA-rated at 24 mpg city, 34 highway, 27 combined, with the same combined mileage for available all-wheel drive. The 530e hybrid gets 29 mpg combined, and can travel for 16 miles on battery power alone. With all-wheel drive it goes one less mile on the batteries and gets one less mile per gallon. The 540i with its turbo-6 gets 21/29/24 mpg, same with all-wheel drive. M550i xDrive gets 18/25/20 mpg, while the high-performance M5 drops to 15/21/17 mpg. All the engines need premium fuel.

The 2019 5-Series hasn't been fully tested for safety, but in 2018 it earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. It comes with automatic emergency braking; a Driving Assistance Plus package for $1,700 tags on adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and cross-traffic alerts. Other safety options include a surround-view camera system with parking sensors, as well as a night-vision system. .
