The Seventh-Generation BMW 5 Series Delivers on Premium Expectations in South Austin

The BMW 5 Series first stepped out under its iconic nameplate in the early 1970s--but BMW had been laying the groundwork for its earthshattering midsize sedan as early as the '60s. The brand debuted a profile and a personality, and has been refining it ever since; some claim that the BMW 5 Series marked the beginning of an entirely new era for BMW's entire design language. The newest 2019 BMW 5 Series is another crucial step in the brand's long history of setting standards and busting conventions. The seventh generation introduces enhanced designs, stronger and more efficient performance, larger and more comfortable interiors, and the classic look and feel of BMW. For 2019 trim levels include the BMW 530i, 530e iPerformance, 540i, and M550i.

Premium Style, Heritage Design

From its large windows, to sharp Adaptive LED headlights, to a low waistline that complements sweeping lines and soft curves, the design of the 2019 BMW 5 Series is unmistakable and unmatchable. Exterior treatments like the Sport Package, Luxury Package, and M Sport Package add subtle finishes and accents. After 2018, the BMW 5 Series is available exclusively in sedan configuration--the Gran Turismo style was retired.
