Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series went through a little bit of a model shakeup, as Bimmer presented the 530e iPerformance and the M550i xDrive to the lineup. With the dust still settling from this motion, we anticipate no noteworthy changes when the 2019 5-Series strikes display rooms.
At this time, we anticipate no changes to the BMW 5-Series’ looks. This should not come as much of a shock, as the midsize sedan simply went through a big redesign– big in BMW terms, a minimum of– in 2017. This generated a bigger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior likewise went through a huge change, acquiring make overs and 1.2 inches of additional rear leg space.
With the appearances continuing, we likewise anticipate no changes to the 5er’s basic features. If this shows to be the case, search for it to consist of 17-inch wheels, a moonroof, dual-zone environment control, an 8.8-inch digital instrument cluster, LED headlights leatherette upholstery, a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and loads more.
We anticipate the 2019 5-Series to coming in with the very same wide variety of powertrain alternatives as in the past. For referral, the base 530 includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horse power and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Security abilities are strong in the present 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ ranking from the IIHS. Keep in mind, however, the greatest score comes just with the optional Frontal Collision Warning with Extended Collision Mitigation that’s part of the Driver Assistance Plus II bundle. We anticipate this to all stay the exact same in 2019.
