Over the past year, the BMW 5-Series underwent a little bit of a model shakeup, as Bimmer presented the 530e iPerformance and the M550i xDrive to the lineup. With the dust still settling from this movement, we anticipate no significant changes when the 2019 5-Series hits showrooms.
2019 BMW 5-Series Design
At this time, we expect no changes to the BMW 5-Series’ looks. This should not come as much of a shock, as the midsize sedan just went through a substantial redesign– substantial in BMW terms, a minimum of– in 2017. This generated a larger body, sharper styling, and a brand-new platform. The interior also went through a big change, gaining make overs and 1.2 inches of additional rear leg room.
With the appearances continuing, we likewise expect no changes to the 5er’s standard features. If this shows to be the case, try to find it to consist of 17-inch wheels, a moonroof, dual-zone environment control, an 8.8-inch digital instrument cluster, LED headlights leatherette upholstery, a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and tons more.
2019 BMW 5-Series Engine
We expect the 2019 5-Series to roll in with the very same wide variety of powertrain choices as before. For recommendation, the base 530 comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horse power and 258 pound-feet of torque.
Moving into the 530e adds an electrical motor to a slightly de-tuned 2.0-liter engine for a total output of 248 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Next up is the 540 with its 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder that produces 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Diesel lovers can snag the 540d xDrive and its turbocharged six-cylinder that produces 261 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. And finally, there’s the big-daddy 550 with its 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 that injects 456 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque.
2019 BMW 5-Series Safety
Safety capabilities are strong in the current 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ ranking from the IIHS. Remember, though, the highest ranking comes only with the optional Frontal Collision Warning with Extended Collision Mitigation that’s part of the Driver Assistance Plus II bundle. We expect this to all stay the exact same in 2019.
2019 BMW 5-Series Pricing & Release Date
There is no main word on the 2019 5-Series’ arrival on display room floorings, however we anticipate to see it in the late summertime of 2018. Given there are no changes in store, we anticipate pricing to stay similar to the 2018 5-Series, which starts from $53,645 and tops out at $74,895 (destination charges included). The 2019 5-Series’ competitors will consist of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
