One the market for a European car? If so you need to set your sights on the BMW series. This company known worldwide has developed some of the best cars currently on the market. Let’s take a little time and find out something about the BMW 5 series.
When they say that the BMW 5 series has set the standards for premium sport sedans, do not take it as an overstatement. Many of the BMW models until now have been built with rear wheel drive, but after some upgrades, versions with four wheel drive have been available in recent years.
When people are asked about their preferences in luxury cars the BMW’s 5 series are very very high up the list. If you have some extra cash that you want to spend on your car than you may want to head for a newer model which is fully electronically equipped, but know that older series are just as satisfying to drive as well. It’s an incredibly balanced car.
There are an impressive amount of models to the 5 series all of them equipped with the latest technology of its age. For example the 2004-2005 series were offered in sedan and with a read wheel drive. There were two six-cylinder models, the 184-hp 525i and 225-hp 530i, along with a top-line V8 version, the 325-hp 545i which usually rocked the house when started. This generation came with two types of transmissions one manual other automatic, both six-speed. Top of the line cars that hit the sales record in 2005. A model from 2004 is somewhere near 12.600$ used of course, as for the 2005 series, that’s only a little more expensive 15.300$.
The 2006 series came with some improvements. The entire engine and body model has been upgraded. The six-cylinders both displaced 3.0 liters, resulting in a more capable 215-hp 525i and a 255-hp 530i. The leader sedan became the 550i and featured a 360-hp 4.8-liter V8, enough to power a car more than twice its size at optimal performance parameters.
Additional standard features and upgrades came in 2007, technological enhances like an auxiliary input jack and the BMW Assist program which came with an outstanding set of drive-aid improvements making the BMW more enhanced than ever. The Night Vision system and 20-way-adjustable front seats made it even more comfortable to drive. The price for one of these ingenious cars is considerably higher, a model from 2006 heightening to 17.700$, as for the 2007 model has a starting price of 25.000$. It may be a little steep but it’s worth it.
All the recent models of BMW are equipped with an iDrive system in which all the automatic car systems became embedded into one central LCD screen. Think about it, controlling the audio system, climate control, navigation add-ons and communication through only one screen. Now that’s what I call engineering efficiency.
All in all the BMW 5 series are extremely well balanced. Equipped for aggressive driving, these cars will keep you on the road no matter the terrain or weather. An adept for control, luxury and handling prowess makes the BMW an internationally known car that can be found on all the continents of the world.
