The 2018 BMW 5 Series Sedan is a midsize sedan offered in 2 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $52,650. For that price, it mainly competes with the Audi A6, Jaguar XF and the Cadillac CTS. Between 2 trims, the 2018 BMW 5 Series sedan offers two powertrain options. The base engine is a 2.0L turbocharged Inline-4 capable of making 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 335 horsepower-making 3.0L turbocharged Inline-6 engine. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The BMW 5 Series sedan reaches 60 mph from zero in 6.2 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 5 seconds with the Inline-6 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the BMW 5 Series sedan can manage a combined fuel economy between 27 and 24 mpg. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 17 striking colors the BMW 5 Series sedan comes in really pull you towards itself.
