A new exterior design, reduced weight and a nearly endless array of new technology features should make this 5 Series a formidable competitor in the midsize luxury sedan class.
- Wide range of new and innovative technology features
- Larger size didn't result in added weight
- Powerful engines are still relatively fuel-efficient.
- Evolutionary styling doesn't stand out in a crowded class
- V8 and plug-in hybrid powertrain options available three months after launch.
