While Consumer Reports says that the 2017 BMW 5 Series has moved away from its performance roots in favor of luxury, that’s not entirely true. While the latest model comes with more tech and luxury touches than ever before, it hasn’t lost the one thing that helped it achieve its status—its driving experience.

Whether you choose a 530i with 248 hp, or a 540i with 335, a rigid chassis and stellar steering feel enable a driving experience that’s engaging and satisfying like nothing else on the road. Driving enjoyment is a hallmark of the Ultimate Driving Machine, and in this, the 5 Series continues to shine while offering more state-of-the-art tech than ever—some of which breaching into semi-autonomous territory. You can also get a Bowers & Wilkins sound system with diamond speakers, and other bits borrowed from the 7 Series, like Gesture Control and Remote Control Parking.

To see the ways you can spec your 5 Series into your perfect luxury car, consult the experts at our BMW dealership in Santa Clara, CA. We’d be happy to schedule you for a test drive and go over our options sheet with you.
