The BMW 5-Series is a mid-size premium sedan that slots in between the 3-Series, the automaker’s bread-and-butter model, and the flagship 7-Series. Now well into its sixth generation, the 5-Series blends a host of powerful gasoline, diesel and hybrid powertrains with a smooth ride and a luxurious interior.

The 5-Series stretches 193.1 inches long, 73.2 inches wide and 57.6 inches tall, dimensions that make it roughly the same size as a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, one of its closest rivals. Unlike the E-Class, the 5-Series is not offered as a station wagon in the United States.

As the quintessential mid-size premium sport sedan, the 5-Series once held special sort of iron grip on enthusiasts’ hearts and minds. While that slipped in the last decade, to some degree, as excellent models like the Cadillac CTS, Jaguar XF, and Audi A6 (and A7) eased in, BMW has smartly turned back the clock just a bit with the current 5-Series, cutting through some of the design clutter and all-things bloat that had crept in. And the 2015 5-Series remains quite in touch with its roots, with classic sport-sedan proportions and sharp, responsive driving dynamics in several flavors.

No matter which model you claim as yours there are sedans and more upright Gran Turismo hatches, with variants that span from economical turbo fours and sixes up to a turbo V-8, or to frugal hybrid and clean-diesel models. And while those models do vary greatly, they all deliver a nuanced ride-and-handling package that eludes lots of other luxury mid-size sedans, good performance, and some impressive driver-oriented technology.

With the 2015 5-Series lineup, BMW gives you the choice to get either a traditional sport sedan, a sporty luxury sedan, or a technology-rich powerhouse that will really appeal to those who appreciate innovation. It’s mostly a matter of checking the right option boxes and being okay with an additional $10k, or even $20k, tagged onto the bottom-line price.

That said, standard equipment is strong even on the base 528i. You’ll find rain-sensing wipers, power heated mirrors, xenon headlamps, dynamic cruise control, and a dual-zone climate control system all included. For 2015, BMW makes a sport leather steering wheel, LED fog lamps, and enhanced Bluetooth/USB/smartphone integration standard across the lineup. As well, the Comfort Access system is now included in 550i models.

In addition to serving as the center piece for the infotainment system, the dash-mounted screen also displays album covers and the images transmitted by the rear view camera.

All 5-Series come standard with Bluetooth connectivity, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, enhanced Bluetooth and smartphone integration, navigation, LED fog lights, automatic Xenon headlights, auto-dimming ambient lighting, 12-volt power outlets and an integrated garage door opener.

The look of the latest 5-Series models aren’t exactly an about-face, but they steered away from a controversial era in BMW design and brought back the more upright, classic-sport sedan designs that seemed to reach a couple of generations back. The 2014 BMW 5-Series gets some further improvements, with a more strongly outlined kidney grille, a sharper taillamp design, and LED headlights that are now optional across the range. Inside, the 5-Series isn’t quite cockpit-like, but it’s driver-centered, and we like the pushed-out corners and low, horizontal dash.

The 5-Series has been around in its current form for four years, although it signaled a change in look of BMW sedans a look that was mostly followed by the revamp of the 3-Series a couple of years later. So it still fits right into the lineup, with pulling away from the controversial BMW designs that preceded it and back into more upright classic-sport sedan designs.

The entry-level 528i is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder mill that makes 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. of torque. Only available with an eight-speed automatic transmission, it returns 23 mpg on the city and 34 mpg on the highway, making the 528i the most fuel-efficient 5-Series ever offered in North America.

The mid-range 535i uses a turbocharged straight-six that is rated at 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft. of torque. It logs 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway when bolted an eight-speed automatic transmission and it propels the 535i from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds.

The available six-speed manual transmission lowers city and highway fuel mileage to 19 and 29, respectively, without having an effect on performance.

M5 aside, the most powerful 5-Series is the 550i, which boasts a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 equipped with BMW’s Valvetronic variable valve timing and lift system. Mated to either an eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual unit, the eight-cylinder mill makes 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft. of torque, enough to send the car from zero to 60 mph in 5 seconds flat.

Last yea BMW gave the 5-Series what was effectively a light mid-cycle refresh, with a facelift that included some new lines around the familiar kidney grille, plus a more aggressive-looking lower air intake below. There’s also a more dramatic taillamp design, and xenon adaptive headlamps are standard with LED headlamps optional. Also, side indicator lights are now integrated into the exterior mirrors. Inside, there are better coordinated exterior trims, and a refreshed dash appearance with a new iDrive controller and touch pad. Luckily, in all of this, they didn’t mess with the 5er’s near-perfect silhouette and stance.

2015 BMW 5-Series Changes

2015 BMW 5-Series Engine

From steering and suspension, to turbocharged powertrains and even available hybrid hardware, the 2015 BMW 5-Series loads on the performance-related technologies. That might sound good to some, but it sounds like a cause for worry for some sport-sedan purists. Will all the driving enjoyment carry through?

Thankfully, it does. Even on some of the most curvy, dynamically demanding roads, the driving experience feels remarkably connected and direct, and the new-generation turbocharged engines are actually more responsive than their predecessors.

All of the 5-Series’ engine lineup is modern, turbocharged, and both stronger and more fuel-efficient than most rival models’ powertrains. Go with the base 528i and you get a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, making 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet. It does the job well, and the excellent eight-speed automatic transmission responds quickly when needed. In 535i models, the 3.0-liter turbocharged six makes 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft, while a new twin-turbocharged V-8 in the 550i makes 445 hp and 480 lb-ft. In the 550i, a new turbocharged V-8 now makes 445 horsepower 45 more than the outgoing model. The 0-60 mph sprint in this model is said to take just 4.5 seconds, which isn’t far off the pace of the M5. Manuals tend to be very limited in this class; but driving enthusiasts will find it noteworthy that most of the 5-Series models (except for the ActiveHybrid5, 535d, and xDrive all-wheel-drive versions) can be had with a manual gearbox.

There’s also a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel straight-six, offered in a 535d sedan only. This engine makes 255 horsepower and 433 pound-feet of torque, the latter of which is said to be available from just 1,500 revs. And as we’ve found in a long-weekend drive, it’s relaxed and confident, and doesn’t need to be driven in any particularly careful way to return great mileage.

The ActiveHybrid5, with a 300-hp turbocharged six-cylinder engine plus a 54-hp electric-motor system and 1.3-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, remains a strong-performing option for those who want to put give their conspicuous consumption a hall pass. It delivers its power through the eight-speed automatic transmission, and can get to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds (which is about as quick as the 535i).
