A Guide to the 2024 BMW 5 Series Lineup

BMW’s iconic 5 Series has undergone a major transformation with the introduction of the G60 model. This latest iteration is the largest 5 Series to date and marks the brand’s foray into a more electrified future. The size of the G60 nearly matches that of the 7 Series, offering potential buyers a luxurious alternative without the need to step up to a bigger sedan. However, with the introduction of mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and the all-electric i5 EV variants, the decision-making process for potential buyers has become more intricate.

For those transitioning from an older 7 Series, the G60’s size and luxury may negate the need to upgrade to a newer 7 Series. To aid potential buyers in making an informed decision, this article breaks down the available options within the G60 lineup.

In the United States, the G60 lineup kicks off with the 530i, featuring a revised B48 four-cylinder turbo engine with 255 hp. For those seeking more power, the 540i, equipped with a B58 six-cylinder engine, offers 375 horsepower and a sprint time of 4.4 seconds to 60 mph. Efficiency-minded buyers can opt for the rear-wheel-drive 530i, boasting a combined fuel consumption rating of 30 mpg.

BMW also introduces a plug-in hybrid option, the 550e xDrive, combining the B58 six-cylinder engine with an electric motor for a total output of 489 horsepower and an electric range of approximately 40 miles. On the all-electric front, the i5 eDrive40 and i5 M60 provide varying power outputs and impressive electric ranges, catering to diverse preferences.
