Considering the acceleration figures, the 2018 BMW 5 Series isn't the best performer amongst the competitors and takes its time to reach 60MPH from naught. Even in the quarter-mile run, the car is an average performer and won't pin any excitement meter around. The fastest car of the lot is 2018 Audi RS 3 which is just a tad bit quicker than the 2018 BMW 5 Series and does the 0-60 MPH run in 3.7 seconds. It also reaches the quarter-mile mark faster than the 2018 BMW 5 Series.
The 2018 BMW 5 Series doesn't play around when it comes to the braking prowess. The car comes to a standstill from 60MPH in 80 feet during the emergency braking test, which is the best in its class. The car stops in a composed manner and instills confidence in the driver.
