2016 BMW 5 Series Guide
Get the best online car shopping experience with expert reviews of the 2016 BMW 5 Series. Read more to learn about the most important features and important factors to consider when researching the 2016 BMW 5 Series.
Overview2016 BMW 5 SERIES
For a luxury midsize sedan that is both technologically advanced as well as comfortable, look no further than the 2016 BMW 5 Series. A sport steering wheel now comes standard on all 2016 5 Series models along with LED foglights, a Harman Kardon sound system, satellite radio and Bluetooth functionality. The company has done away with the Modern line package for 2016, instead offering an Executive package that includes a slick leather dashboard.
Safety TechnologyTake comfort in the safety of your BMW with standard safety features like antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, active front head restraints, side curtain airbags and front-seat side airbags. The 5 Series won a four-star rating for frontal impacts and a five-star rating for side impacts in government crash testing, earning an overall top-rated five stars. The BMW Assist emergency communications system is a welcome addition to each model, offering automatic crash notification, remote door unlocks, stolen vehicle recovery and an SOS button.
Engine and Fuel EconomyFuel economy on 2016 5 Series vehicles ranges from 23 mpg for rear-drive 535i models to 27 mpg in the base 528i model with a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. The 535d offers an outstanding 30 mpg with its turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel inline-6 engine. The impressive 550i comes complete with a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 that offers an EPA-estimated rating of 20 mpg.
InteriorAs BMW often does, designers have created a sleek, stylish interior for the 5 Series, featuring a high-quality trim, retro instrument panel with analog gauges and a simple, classic dashboard center stack. The iDrive interface offers a substantial 10.2-inch high-resolution dashboard display and a center console rotary controller. The optional 20-way multicontour seats are an added benefit in this spacious interior, offering a range of adjustments and fits for every driving scenario.
HandlingBMW has exchanged the sportier handling of previous 5 Series models with a focus on interior space and comfort. The 5 Series cabin is accentuated by a spacious, luxurious design. If a sportier luxury midsize sedan is more for you, consider some lighter options with advanced handlings such as the Audi A6, the Cadillac CTS or the Lexus GS 350.
Trunk SpaceFor a luxury midsize sedan, trunk space is rather limited in the 2016 BMW 5 Series. Measuring only 14 cubic feet, you'll struggle to fit anything more than a medium-size grocery run in the trunk. Although you will be able to open your trunk in style with the power open function, the trunk opening size is small as well. If you are a golfer or require considerable cargo space during your journeys, this car may be small for you.
Automatic Stop-Start SystemWhile the BMW's automatic stop-start system is in place to increase fuel economy, the feature can come across as intrusive rather than helpful. You might not notice it much during long trips on the interstate. The feature kicks in at stoplights, stop signs and anywhere your car idles for more than a few seconds. It starts to get frustrating, however, in thick traffic or in downtown areas where you approach stop after stop.
