2021 BMW 5 Series Review

  • Wide range of powerful and relatively efficient engines
  • A host of innovative features and leading-edge tech
  • Interior is quiet and comfortable
  • Generous trunk capacity
  • Evolutionary styling doesn't stand out in a crowded class
  • Some interior materials are a bit below segment standards
  • Updated grille design
  • Larger touchscreen and improved voice controls
  • 540i gains 48-volt mild hybrid system
  • More power for the 530e plug-in hybrid
  • Part of the seventh 5 Series generation introduced for 2017

For much of the 1990s and 2000s, the BMW 5 Series was the quintessential midsize luxury sport sedan. With a keen mix of strong power, engaging handling and refined comfort, it fit in perfectly between BMW's smaller 3 Series and larger 7 Series. To the disappointment of some, more recent versions of the 5 Series have focused more on luxury. But it's still one of the preeminent midsize sedans on the market.

For 2021, BMW has updated the 5 Series with a restyled front end, a larger infotainment touchscreen and improved voice controls. There's also a new 48-volt mild hybrid system for the 540i that slightly improves fuel efficiency and smooths out the operation of the engine's stop-start system at stoplights. How does it compare against the likes of Audi's tech-forward A6  and Mercedes-Benz's impressive E-Class? Across individual categories, the BMW doesn't always come out on top. But on the whole, the 5 Series is a satisfying luxury sedan that deserves a close look. Check out our Expert Rating for our in-depth evaluation.

What's it like to live with?

To find out what life is like with the current-generation BMW 5 Series, check out our Long Term blog of our time with a 2018 540i xDrive. Some (minor) changes have been made to the 5 Series since then but our findings and impressions are still very relevant.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
The BMW 5 Series lives up to the expectations set by its forebears. There's an engine for nearly every taste, and the car's handling capabilities are fundamentally sound. Factor in the 5 Series' top-shelf tech and safety features and you've got a prime pick for a midsize luxury sedan.
If the driving experience is truly important to you, then the 5 Series is a sedan to consider. Most of the models are well-rounded performers. In our testing, the four-cylinder 530i managed to cover 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds, a good showing for a base engine. We also tested a 540i xDrive and recorded an impressive sprint of just 4.6 seconds.

Our test 530i had ultra-smooth M Sport brakes that stopped the car from 60 mph in just 108 feet, an admirable result for a midsize luxury sedan. The steering is nicely weighted but somewhat numb. Thankfully, the chassis is both balanced and communicative.
The 5 Series is a supremely comfortable car, especially with the optional multi-contour front seats. We are also impressed with the ride quality — it's comfortable and relatively plush yet well damped so it doesn't feel floaty. And while there's a mild amount of road noise that creeps in, there's no wind noise and the engine is barely audible when cruising.

Our only issue with the climate system was its capacity to keep us properly chilled. While the dual-temp, dual-fan speed controls offer a lot of variabilities, the fan speed was never quite strong enough to deal with temperature extremes.
The 530i's cabin is an excellent place to spend time. Front passengers have ample room. And thanks to the highly adjustable seat and steering wheel, drivers of just about all sizes should be able to find a comfortable position. Climbing in or out is a breeze thanks to generous door openings with plenty of head clearance. Rear legroom is spacious, and rear headroom is sufficient but not exceptional.

BMW is great at minimizing button count, but that leaves a lot for iDrive to control. The iDrive menus are pretty straightforward and easy to navigate, but it takes time to wrap your head around all the options and customizations available. It can be a little intimidating. We do like the clear views the 5 Series provides. The windows are nicely sized, especially in the rear. The optional surround-view camera system helps a lot too.
BMW is one of the more aggressive manufacturers when it comes to innovative features. Most of them are useful, while some are cool parlor tricks, but we appreciate them all. The stereo provides high-quality sound and responds well to gesture controls. BMW's voice assistant works as expected with natural language commands to control many vehicle functions.

The 5 Series' driver safety aids work extremely well. The adaptive cruise, for instance, maintains a tight gap behind the car ahead, and the actuating brakes stop hard yet smoothly when needed. The most impressive feature of the 5 Series is its parking cameras that help render an amazing 3D image of the outside of the car.
The 530i has a fairly generous trunk with flexible cargo configurations. The 530i's trunk is larger than most in the segment. The trunk has a wide opening and a low liftover, but it narrows a fair amount toward the back of the rear seats. The folding rear seats are split 40/20/40, which provides some nice flexibility.

BMW has done a decent job with in-cabin storage: water bottle pockets on all the doors, a retractable cover that houses a bin for wireless phone charging up front, and a decent-size glovebox and center armrest space. It's still not a lot of storage, but it's sufficient for a European luxury sedan.
The 530i is rated at 28 mpg combined. We achieved 27 mpg on our 115-mile evaluation route, but we usually exceed combined mpg on this route. And our overall test average of 23.1 mpg fell below the city rating. Both are disappointing but unsurprising for a modern downsized turbocharged engine such as the four-cylinder in the 530i. Our test of the 540i was more favorable in matching EPA estimates.
The quality of BMW's electronics is top-notch, from the central touchscreen to the driver's gauge cluster. Interior panel fit is also nice, but the materials used for the wood trim and leather can come across as slightly fake. You'll pay for every option you add, but prices are fair for the segment and worth it considering the quality of the upgrades.

BMW's four-year/50,000-mile warranty coverage is on par for a German brand, though some American and Asian brands offer more. But the three-year/36,000-mile free maintenance coverage is uncommon in the luxury segment.
We're relieved to see BMW focusing on driving dynamics again, which is what ultimately defines the personality of its cars. But we do wish BMW would take a little more risk on the exterior design. There's very little that differentiates this latest generation from the previous 5 Series.

Which 5 Series does Edmunds recommend?

For the best experience, we recommend starting with the 540i. The turbocharged six-cylinder engine's balance of power and efficiency is laudable for a car of this size. We'd also spring for the Driving Assistant Plus package for its adaptive cruise control and other useful driver aids and the Parking Assistance package for its surround-view camera and parking sensors. If you'd like a little extra performance, you should definitely opt for the M Sport package, which includes a sport suspension, grippy tires and unique exterior styling.

BMW 5 Series models

The 2021 BMW 5 Series is available in four trim levels, all with different powertrains. The 530i (248 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque) and the 530e plug-in hybrid (288 hp, 310 lb-ft) are powered by variants of BMW's turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The EPA estimates you can go about 21 miles on electric power in the 530e before switching to regular hybrid operation.

The 540i gets a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder (335 hp, 331 lb-ft). At the top of the range is the M550i with its turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 (523 hp, 553 lb-ft). BMW's all-wheel drive, called xDrive, is an option on the 530i, the 530e and the 540i. It's standard on the M550i. An eight-speed automatic is standard across the board. The ultra high-performance M5 is reviewed separately.

5/5 stars, Best automobile I've driven
James ,
M550i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)
I have a 2021 M550i. Extraordinary car. The comfort factor in this car is the very best I've experienced. The variability of seat adjustments is incredible. I have had 13 herniated discs and never have I found a more variable adjustable seat, nor massage modes. The power (523hp) is insane for a car in this sector. Acceleration is phenomenal and curves are super smooth. I don't have the driving skills for an M5, or a Porsche, due to spine issues, but this car is perfect for me. I ordered every extra except the 'use the key fob to park the car'. Driving this car is a sublime experience - power, acceleration, solid stance cornering, comfort (the seat adjustability is endless), audio (the Bowers and Wilkens audio is the best I have heard in a car), and pure luxurious fun of driving is incredible. It's far better than the Audi S6 or MB AMG E53 that I also test drove. I love idrive version 7, although miss Google Skyview that I had in my 2018 Audi S5 that I traded. I had a '20 Audi S6 ordered, and canceled due to terrible sales communication. So glad the Audi deal fell apart - the M550i is a superior driving experience, and the rotary dial user interface in the Beem is far better than the multiple touchscreens in the Audi. MB user interface in the E series is terrible
5/5 stars, My Dub!
Jason ,
530i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Car is smooth and sexy! Rides like a dream! Love the color trim package could have been a little better no seat warmers I was shocked! The rest is top notch though
5/5 stars, Amazing Quality and Powertrain
Jeff,
540i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 8A)
Definitely not a sporty car. If you want that, get a 3-series. That's not to say you can't have fun it it, it has a lot of power and has a great engine. But it is first and foremost a luxury cruiser geared towards comfort. If that is what you are looking for, this is the best in the business.
5/5 stars, DREAM CAR

I love the car its the best car i ever had

BMW 5 Series vs. the competition

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

BMW 5 Series vs. Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The E-Class is our top-rated luxury sedan, and for good reason. Its interior is rich in both luxury and technology, and any one of the available engines wows with power, efficiency or both. But the 5 Series isn't far behind, offering its own mix of performance, comfort and practicality, especially in the lower trim levels.

BMW 5 Series vs. Audi A6

Balancing technology with impressive driving dynamics is a thread that runs through Audi's products, and this is especially true of the A6. What it lacks in traditional luxury it more than makes up for with its bold, tech-forward interior. But its dual-touchscreen infotainment setup can be distracting to use, and the A6 lacks the range of engines and personalities offered by the 5 Series.

BMW 5 Series vs. Volvo S90

Just because the S90 flies under most buyers' radar doesn't mean it's not worth a look. Volvo has outfitted its luxury sedan with some of the most comfortable seats in the class, and the S90 holds true to the company's dedication to safety with many of the best advanced driver aids. The 5 Series, however, still has an edge on performance.

2021 BMW 5 Series First Impressions

What is the 5 Series?

The 2021 BMW 5 Series is the latest version of BMW's venerable midsize luxury sedan. The 5 Series was last fully redesigned in 2017, and this year's model introduces a number of interesting twists and tweaks to improve upon a winning formula. While the current 5 Series is notable for its range of quick, efficient engines and comfortable ride, its styling didn't exactly jump off the page. For 2021, the front grille, headlights, taillights and tailpipe finishers are redesigned to give BMW's popular sedan a little extra flair.

What's under the 5 Series' hood?

The 2021 BMW 5 Series offers buyers the choice between four powertrains. The 248-horsepower four-cylinder engine in the 530i and 530i xDrive and the 523-horsepower eight-cylinder in the M550i xDrive carry the same power ratings as last year. The 530e and 530e xDrive plug-in hybrids now feature a new XtraBoost system that can temporarily increase maximum muscle from 248 horsepower to 288 hp in the Sport driving and transmission modes.

However, the 540i and the 540i xDrive, previously using a conventional six-cylinder engine, add a 48-volt mild hybrid starter-generator for 2021. This setup is gaining traction among luxury automakers and essentially incorporates hybrid technology into a non-hybrid vehicle. For the 540i, this means regenerative brakes store energy harvested from the braking process in a separate battery. This energy can be used to supply the 12-volt electrical system that powers the windows, locks and other functions. It can also be used to assist the engine, providing up to an additional 11 horsepower when needed. BMW says this makes the 540i more efficient while providing quicker responsiveness when asked.

How's the 5 Series' interior?

Inside, the 2021 5 Series is largely unchanged from the previous model year, carrying over the spacious and statesman-like cabin we rated highly in our testing. However, there are a few updates. The sedan's central touchscreen is bumped up from 10.25 inches to 12.3 inches and features improved navigation maps. The standard Sensatec imitation leather upholstery is also perforated this year, so look for seat ventilation to pop up on the options list with this upholstery.

How's the 5 Series' tech?

As with the 2020 model, the 2021 5 Series comes with an impressive number of safety features such as lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, front collision warning with brake assist, and others. A handful of additional driving aids are available in the Driving Assistance Plus package, and we've enjoyed the smooth operation of its adaptive cruise control in the past.

The Live Cockpit Professional system, released on last year's 5 Series, ties together the digital instrument panel and central touchscreen. For 2021, it adds a few new functions, including displaying information about surrounding vehicles and motorists on the information screen in front of the driver. The voice activation system is upgraded to its newest generation, and the Drive Recorder makes its 5 Series debut. This optional system can save recorded video footage taken by exterior cameras to be watched on the central screen or exported to a USB drive later.

EdmundsEdmunds says

Electrification keeps creeping further into the BMW lineup, and we don't expect it to stop with the 5 Series. The mild hybrid system in the 540i and 540i xDrive should make this transition a smooth one. However, we wonder if buyers will notice the almost-too-subtle design updates. If not, the 5 Series risks fading further into the background against its German rivals and the plucky Genesis.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 BMW 5 Series?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
