Amplified up by several notches on the performance front with respect to the regular 5-series, the 2022 BMW M5 continues to dominate the segment. BMW, for 2022, however, adds an M5 Competition Sport (CS) variant to the lineup, which along with being 230 lbs lighter than the M5, also makes 627 hp from the twin-turbo V8. For sale across major BMW showrooms, the price of the 2022 M5 starts off from an MSRP of $103,700, while the M5 CS will set you back by an MSRP of $142,000.



The 2022 BMW M5 is the benchmark in the midsize performance segment. A 600 hp 4.4L twin-turbo V8 powers the regular M5 and the same engine produces 617 hp in the M5 Competition. Now, this pushes the M5 sedan from 0-60 MPH in 3.2 seconds, while the M5 CS with 627 hp in 2.6 seconds. Apart from its performance, the M5 also offers a luxurious and comfortable interior. The cabin is not the most tech-oriented but its infotainment system is one of the best in the business. Also with plenty of safety tech on offer, the M5 will go up against the Mercedes-AMG E63 S, the Audi RS 7, and the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2022 BMW M5 isn't a subdued sedan. It's an endless thrill ride on four wheels- CarAndDriver

Having received a major redesign last year, BMW didn't feel the need to update the M5 for this year for obvious reasons. However, having said that, the main talking point this year is the new M5 CS, the fastest street-legal M5 ever built. Not only is the exterior of the M5 CS the talk of the town, with its bronze-colored 20-inch wheels, the interior also houses bolstered M carbon-fiber front seats and rear bucket seats. This explains the $39,000 hike in its price, amongst other reasons. Even the regular M5 provides lots of power but with subtle looks. The M5 also fulfills the duties of a luxury sedan and therefore, possesses dual character.

The 2022 M5 can be leased at $1,369 per month for a term of 36 months. You may have to pay a downpayment amount of $7,999 at the time of purchase. There is also a finance option available at an APR rate of 0.9% for a term of 60 months. Owning an M5 can break your bank as it can cost up to $25,000 every year for its maintenance, repair, fuel, depreciation, etc.


Buying Advice

We'd settle for the 2022 BMW M5 base trim itself as it offers mind-blowing performance as well as ample comfort features, all for an MSRP of $103,700. We do recommend upgrading to the Driver Assistance Professional package for some essential driver aids. This compensates for a breath-taking yet safe driving experience.

Features
8.0/10

The iDrive infotainment interface in the M5 doesn't take much effort to operate the many available features- Edmunds

The 2022 BMW M5 carries forward without any changes, which means the line-up is the same. The base M5 is priced at an MSRP of $103,700 while the M5 Competition costs up to $111,300. Add to that a $995 destination charge. People looking for a bit more performance can opt for the all-new M5 CS variant that costs $142,000. It raises the bar for driving enthusiasts with its weight-saving measures and higher power output than the regular M5.

The M5 is a luxurious car but it is focused on performance. Hence, you get several optional performance gears to amp your driving experience. The M Driver's package includes a one-day high-performance driving class and raises the top speed to 190 MPH. The $3,350 Executive package adds heated rear seats, ventilated and massaging front seats, soft-close doors, and many more.

Engine and Performance
9.0/10

Astonishing acceleration, all-wheel drive allows rear-drive antics, expensively appointed cabin- CarAndDriver

One of the fastest sedans in the BMW M lineup, behind the M5 CS variant, the 2022 BMW M5 features the brand's flagship 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. In the base M5, it produces 600 hp and 553 lb-ft. of torque while in the M5 Competition, it makes 617 hp. The 8-speed M Sport automatic transmission is as good as it gets. It is not a dual-clutch, instead, it's a torque converter system. The M5 comes standard with an AWD system but pressing the Drift mode button can send 100% of the power to the rear wheels.

The suspension setup is stiffer than a usual BMW because it's an M car. Get ready to feel fidgety on bumpy roads. However, when you set it in Comfort mode, things soften up a little bit. The steering is razor-sharp and this large sedan handles like a sports car through the twisties. That is because the chassis was re-tuned by M-Sport Division. When you take those sharp turns at speed, body roll is well maintained. All in all, the M5 lives up to the driver's car.

The engine is so potent that even the base M5 trim will propel from 0-60 MPH in 3.2 seconds and it can tear up a drag strip in 11 seconds. The M5 Competition, with extra 17 horses, can do it in just 2.8 seconds. The top speed of the M5 can go up to 200 MPH with the M Driver's package. The standard ventilated disc braking can halt this beast from 60 MPH in 97 feet but they can be upgraded with carbon-ceramic brakes for better stopping power.

On coming to the new entrant on the block, the M5 CS is able to do the 0-60 MPH sprint in just 2.6 seconds, as it gets a retuned 627 hp V8. This blistering figure is achieved from a unique chassis tuning, Pirelli P Zero Corsa performance tires, and it being 230 lbs lighter than the M5 Competition. For those speed freaks, the M5 CS will definitely blow your minds off.

Fuel Economy
8.0/10

The M5 isn't going to win any eco-conscious awards in the USA, but it's at least on par within its segment- Carbuzz

Fuel economy isn't a big priority for customers looking for a car like the 2022 BMW M5. However, these cars do need to comply with the regulations. Thus, the M5 has achieved an EPA rating of 15 MPG in city driving and 21 MPG on highway cruising. Combined, you can expect up to 17 MPG, which is pretty decent for a performance sedan. Despite making 17 horses more, the M5 Competition's fuel ratings are identical to the M5 sedan, which is a good thing. The M5 is fitted with a large 20.1-gallon fuel tank so that the sedan can provide a driving range of 342 miles in mixed proportions. Thanks to its large tank, the M5's mileage is pretty competitive in the segment.

The larger engine does not do any favor in terms of fuel economy to all of these vehicles, But the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S edges out ahead of the M5 with slightly better fuel estimates. It also gets a larger fuel tank which helps boost overall range. The supercharged engine in the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing drinks more juice than its rivals and it's quite obvious.

Interior
9.0/10

Overall, the M5's cabin is very nice, with soft leather surfaces and tasteful metal accents- Cnet

The 2022 BMW M5 might perform like a fully-fledged supercar, but at the end of the day, it is a comfortable and luxurious sedan. The M5 has an elegant leather interior with plush seating that is next only to the flagship 7 series. The interior and dashboard layout has largely stayed the same. The M Competition model adds M Color seat belts to stand out from the crowd. The front bucket seats offer good cushioning and bolstering.

The seats can be power-adjusted in 20 ways and come standard with heated functionality. The three-spoke leather steering wheel is also power-adjustable but rather looks straightforward. Even the rear seats are spacious enough and can be upgraded with heated functionality. There is ample passenger space across both rows of seating. You can easily cram in five people due to the large legroom offered in the rear seats. BMW also introduces the M5 CS, which is the new entrant on the block and gets notable features on the interior front, such as M carbon-fiber front seats and rear bucket seats.

This Bimmer's dashboard is dominated by dual 12.3-inch displays that sit on top. It runs the BMW's latest iDrive infotainment system that is super smooth and one of the best in the business. This system includes nifty features like wireless Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi hotspot, voice recognition, etc. Using the gesture controls can be tacky but it performs basic functions neatly. The 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound's quality is mesmerizing.

When it comes to cargo capacity, the M5 offers 18.7 cu. ft of cargo space. You could store enough luggage for a family of four. The rear seats can be folded in a 40/20/40 split for carrying more items. However, the hatchback-like profile of the Audi RS 7 benefits from class-leading cargo capacity.

Some other interior highlights of the M5 are:

  • Power tilt & telescopic multi-function leather steering wheel

Exterior
8.0/10

The M5 super-sedan is about as BMW as BMWs get these days (at least, next to purer stuff such as the much smaller M2)- Motortrend

The exterior styling of the 2022 BMW M5 is definitely impressive, but some might argue that it lacks drama which other brands do offer. It looks so much more aggressive, particularly around the front bumper. It's a much more angular design with lots of black trim. The LED laser lights look really striking and sleek. The infamous kidney grille is still manageable on this car and does not look out of place.

The muscular lines and hood creases make it feel more muscly than its rivals. Coming to the side, there's a fin above the front wheel arch. From the rear end, the M5 has a seriously mean look. The 20-inch wheels keep this sedan 5.2 inches above the ground. The standard sports exhaust system and a super chunky diffuser really sound meatier. Just like the front ones, the LED taillights also boast an attractive look.

The Mercedes-AMG E63 S sits low to the ground which potentially helps to build pace on smooth pavements. The Audi RS 7's wheelbase is comparatively smaller than the M5 but its cabin is spacious. This aids in better handling around the corners. The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing's overall length measures 194.9 inches, the shortest here. So, you won't find any trouble while maneuvering at tight turns.

Some other exterior features are:

  • LED adaptive headlights
  • LED adaptive taillights
  • LED fog lamps
  • Puddle lamps
  • Power-folding, heated exterior mirrors
  • Quad exhaust chrome tips
  • Black grille with chrome surround
  • Rear lip spoiler

Safety
9.0/10

The M5's driver safety aids are successful in adding a layer of safety without getting in the way- Edmunds

Both NHTSA and IIHS have not rated the 2022 BMW M5. The M5 uses the same modular Cluster Architecture (CLAR) chassis as the regular 5 series, except that the chassis is tuned by M-Sport Division. Hence, it is acceptable to use 5 Series IIHS ratings. It performed incredibly well in all assessments and received 'Good' ratings. When it's about passenger safety in a BMW, there's nothing to worry about as it is globally known for its safety technologies. This Bimmer comes loaded with a plethora of standard driver-assist technologies. You can also equip this performance sedan with the Driver Assistance Professional package that costs an extra $1,700.

The safety features on offer include:

  • Rearview Camera
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Blind-Spot Assist
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Dynamic Cruise Control
  • City Collision Mitigation
  • Front Collision Warning w/ Pedestrian Detection
  • Park Distance Control
  • Speed Limit Information
  • Active Driving Assistant Pro
Competition
8.0/10

2022 BMW M5 vs 2022 Mercedes-AMG E63 S

The BMW M5 and the Mercedes-AMG E63 S couldn't be more evenly matched. They both deliver eye-melting performance as well as unmatched luxury. However, in some aspects like the infotainment system and eye-catching interior details, the E63 S seems to beat the M5. It does not offer some driver-assist features which the M5 does. Both offer similar warranty coverages, but BMW also offers complimentary maintenance and slightly better trunk space.

2022 BMW M5 vs 2022 Audi RS 7

The Audi RS 7 definitely looks stunning which helps it stand out but it is way more expensive than the M5. The M5 obliterates the RS7 in terms of performance, and raw power. It does offer an equally luxurious interior but the main highlight is its tech-forward cabin and its class-leading cargo volume. Audi also offers a complimentary maintenance warranty. That said, choosing either of these sedans comes down to personal preference.

Final Verdict

The 2022 BMW M5 is an excellent sedan that delivers exhilarating performance as well as the comfort levels of a limousine. As long as you don't find the urge to go for the fastest ever M5 ever in the form of the M5 CS, it is best that you stick with the regular M5 as it offers all the oomph and grunt that you expect from an M5 but with all the modern bells and whistles.
