The iconic BMW sedan conserves the power to strangulate many of the distractions that come its way. The BMW M5 is an experience that takes thrill to the next level. Being an infamous sedan, this gives rise to 600 horsepower from the turbocharged V8 engine. With the competition package, an extra 17 horses add up the line making a total of 617 horsepower on the BMW M5 Competition. A large body design conveys tons of passenger space when they fly with its all-wheel drivetrain bolted with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Ahead of the premium feel, the sports bucket seat stratifies a proper sports car made to charge the track with its performance. The latest 12.3 inch running on the latest BMW Idrive infotainment system performs all features correctly.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

Coming to the end of an era of limited edition BMW M5 CS sedan, the 2023 M5 brings some subtle changes in equipment offerings. Instead of presenting the M5 Competition as a separate model, the manufacturer now brings it as an upgrade over the regular M5. Exterior paint options now include San Remo Green metallic and Skyscraper Grey metallic. There are no longer any Brand's Hatch Grey Metallic, Snapper Rocks Blue Metallic, Motegi Red Metallic, Donington Grey Metallic, Bluestone Metallic, or Frozen Bluestone Metallic colors available. There are now two interior leather options available, Individual Smoke White/Black Full Merino leather and Tartufo Full Merino leather, but Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System is no longer available. It competes against the Audi RS7, the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, and the Maserati Ghibli.


Features

The manufacturer has now refined the M5 into a single trim. It includes a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that vomits 600 horsepower. It gains a heated steering wheel, heated front sports bucket seats, wireless charging pad, wifi hotspot, 16-speakers Harman Kardon surround sound system, and head-up display.

We Recommend 

Standard M5 is not a truly blank sedan that needs tons of upgrades. Though the optional upgrades work as an ornament. A competition package is a must thing to do when it adds special 20-inch wheels, front sport seats, and premium leather upholstery with dark exterior accents that makes it look more aggressive than a regular sedan. A sunroof is a preferential thing, but carbon-ceramic brake calipers are the must-have components that respect the performance of this rocket. Enthusiasts care more about safety, then, the driver-assistive plus package might work for them.

Release Date

The 2023 BMW M5 is released into the market and is available for sale in your nearest dealerships.

Engine and Performance

Without even touching any upgrades, a 4.4L twin-turbocharged engine sends energy to the M5 with the help of 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque production capacity. Melted with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the sedan roars when running in all-wheel drive (AWD) architecture. It burst a 0-60 mph mark in just 3.2 seconds. When opening the competition package, the horses become 617 and bring an enormous record of completing the 0-60 mark in just 2.8 seconds. Despite the heavy luxury sedan, it feels running like light. The first gear ratio is 5:1 which reduces to 1.31 :1 up to the fifth gear and 0.60:1 till the final eighth gear. That shows how powerful and effective the gears are and creamy to shift. It returns to reverse in just 3.48:1. As a luxury vehicle it is good to drive in cities, but taking it not to the highways will degrade the true attitude it is manufactured for. The steering response is gentle, but sometimes it does not listen to commands precisely and lacks feedback.

Audi RS7 is the fastest sedan under $130k. The Cadillac CT-V is the most affordable sedan with the highest power and torque production. The 2023 BMW M5 price is lesser than the Maserati Ghibli and Audi RS7. Maserati Ghibli lies on the same price tag as Audi RS7 but brings the least output in the comparison. The 2023 BMW M5's top speed resembles the Audi RS7. Cadillac CT-V and the Maserati are the vehicles with an RWD drivetrain by default, the rest are offered with an all-wheel drive (AWD) structure. Except for the CT-V, all cars carry the same 8-speed automatic transmission.

2023 BMW M5 Ride and Handling 

No doubt, the M5 sedan ride is phenomenal. Its comfortable seats hook you with respect when you have fought with the torquier V8 engine. Seats are reliable and one can make plans to take them over long distances. Ahead of an exceptional driving experience, it does not fade away its tag to be called a luxury sedan. The all-wheel drive structure maintains the athletic behavior of the car with all due respect. Speed bumps are barely noticeable. Adaptive suspension dampers do not let the driver know if the car is running on altered or not-so-even road conditions. Standard head-up display exhibits important information in your sight line onto the windshield. Being a heavy vehicle, cornering around the turns is more pleasing than some, but still lacks behind many of them. It draws a turning diameter of 41.4 ft. This mighty sedan sends four drive modes. Eco is the fuel-saving mode that mitigates engine performance and helps run the vehicle on the optimum power required. On selecting the Sport mode, all suspension and gear wear a sporty style outfit. Comfort mode confronts the driver with a pleasing driving feel. It also devises an option to personalize things according to their will. Adaptive mode adjusts dynamic damper controls, transmission, and the steering wheel with real-time navigation. Standard 19-inch wheels evolve around performance tires of dimensions P275/45YR19 in the front and P85/45YR19 in the rear.

2023 BMW M5 Braking System 

The braking distance is astonishing for a sedan weighing over 4300 pounds. Brakes are very talkative and respond to even a small action applied. This sometimes creates complexity, if the brakes are applied mistakenly. Optional carbon-ceramic brake calipers function prosperously. The anti-lock braking system on all wheels helps prevent locking under critical or harsh braking conditions. When an emergency braking assist notices the driver slamming the brake pedal, it applies maxim force to the brake to help make sure the car stops as soon as possible.

N/A

Audi RS7 brings the largest brake calipers on the front wheels. It enables the vehicle to stop competitively despite having the highest curb weight in the comparison. Out of the counted cars and rotors, the 2023 BMW M5 stops the fastest. Maserati Ghibli's curb weight is four pounds lesser than the BMW M5's curb weight. Being the most affordable vehicle, the Cadillac CT-V shows the lowes weight and has a braking distance almost on the same line as its competitors. Taking the curb weight and brake caliper sizes of the Maserati Ghibli, an educated guess tells us it will take the exact distance to come to a standstill as the newest BMW M5 takes.

Fuel Economy

The car sucks more fuel in exchange for delivering a thrilling rendition. Some of its key competitors are better choices with extra mpg. It secures an estimated combined mileage of 17 mpg, giving 15 in the city and 21 on the highways. Holds a fuel tank of 20.1 gallons and confers a combined 281.4 miles. ( 301.5 city miles and 422.1 highway miles of range).

Surprisingly the BMW M5 is the performance sedan with the best mileage numbers. Though the gap is not wide, still it sits atop the comparison table. Audi RS7 mpg ad BMW M5 mp numbers are identical on the highway and combined basis. BMW M5 range numbers show that it is the best BMW to drive across the city streets. Maserati Ghibli and Cadillac CT-V also carry equal mpg with extra mpg more or less. Maserati's fuel capacity is the highest.

Interior

A high-quality leather interior welcomes the passenger and driver. The doors open adequately wide to felicitate people. Surfing in and out of easy peasy. Seats are gently comfortable retaining the luxury notion of the vehicle. Door panels compose soft touching material. Rear door panels serve hundreds with storage bins and power controls for windows. Front door panels carry the same caprice with additional controls to bring the front seats in motion. Front seats are heated by default and get toasty easily when turning the feature on. Optional packages bring upgraded ventilation mechanisms for front seats and heating for the rear-seated passengers. Interior full Marino Leather upholstery can be tossed into nine separate shades. We prefer electing the black. The dashboard picture remains unchanged for a couple of years. It induces the same subtle layout. A center 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen sits just above the two AC vents making a count of four with two on either pole. Power tilt and the telescopic steering wheel are grippy enough and show sound and other controls embedded within. Chrome elements surround it. The Center console gains two separate armrests working as open and close for the storage compartment. The rotary knob, gear selector, and wireless charging pad make the sense of a console dipped in traces of chrome.

Front-row seats on the Cadillac CT-V bring the highest amount of legroom. The rear seats on the Audi RS7 confer an equal amount of space to that of Cadillac for extending legs. BMW M5's cargo capacity is better than that of CT-V. Audi RS7 is an all-around vehicle with the highest cargo-carrying capacity.

How Intuitive is the 2023 BMW M5 Infotainment System?

A 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen mounted at the center of the dash–supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The rotary knob situated on the center console is also a tool to interact with the display. The screen is fairly bright and refreshing. Standard 600W 12-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system sounds crazy. A wireless charging pad ggaveon the dash. BMW assists you with the app by which the basic functions of the car can be operated.

Exterior

The exterior feels a bit refined when looking with scrutiny. The hood has become slimmer with updates and it benefits the car by gaining more aerodynamic efficiency. It covers the twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Sparking lines on the hood brings the car towards a muscular personality. The front kidney-shaped typical BMW grille is painted black and also mounts black bordering. BMW logo on the top of that. Front LED headlights go with an adaptability function. Parking sensors prepared on the front bumpers let the air inside cool down the engine. More air intakes below front lights. The side profile is decent and the same as usual. Doors and windows panels are themed in black accents. The door handles show the same clearcoat paint as the car. Black outside rearview mirror with heating function. Standard 19-inch wheels move around the tires of measurement P275/45YR19 in the front and P85/45YR19 in the rear. Similar to the interior, the exterior can also be themed into nine pallets. We prefer going for the Competition package that brings Motera Red clearcoat paint. The rear end is simple holding four visible exhaust tips, a BMW logo, an M5 badging, and a rearview camera mounted under the cargo access area.

Safety

The manufacturer shoots its intention to charge for more advanced safety features. Standard blindspot monitoring alerts that a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot. Front and rear parking sensors alert to obstacles that may not be visible in front of or behind the vehicle when parking. Optional adaptive cruise control by controlling the speed of M5 maintains a significant gap with the vehicle moving in front of it.

Competition

  • 2023 BMW M5 vs. 2023 Audi RS7

Audi costs further and brings better acceleration with the same top speed. BMW M5 brings extra mpg and its bigger fuel tank helps score more miles of range. Both are all-wheel driven vehicles on the standard. Both carry admirable interiors, but Audi covers more spacious seats. With more cargo capacity, Audi deems to be a better option. BMW offers more power output. 

  • 2023 BMW M5 vs. 2023 Cadillac CT-V Blackwing

Blackwing is the closest competitor. It brings extra power with a suitable price gap (costs lesser). M5 is an all-wheel drive vehicle, while Cadillac CT-V is only rear-wheel driven with six-speed manual transmission. M5 offers an eight-speed automatic. CT-V runs with more top speed, but BMW wins the race with a better speed catch. Elegant looking interior of the BMW feels like leaving the Cadillac a way behind.

  • 2023 BMW M5 vs. 2023 Maserati Ghibli

Ghibli is a more stylish-looking vehicle with an amazing curvaceous design. BMW M5 brings standard 19-inch wheels, on the other hand, Maserati looks to send 21-inch without extra charge. Maserati costs less and provides less power. With less money, BMW M5 is a preferable option that sends a bursting acceleration despite the low top speed.

Final Verdict

With the price, the manufacturer sends a strong set of performance numbers is truly exciting. A lightning acceleration, ample amount of room, generous cargo capacity, number of optional packages, and the overall styling it possesses are genuinely applauding. It makes it a tough competitor in the segment. However, it's a bit laggy steering, and the low safety feature offered on the standard are also aspects to look upon. Audi is the fastest and costs more than BMW. Dreams of a car with manual transmission and more output than the M5?, the CT-V Blackwing is for them. Maserati might be a good option when one is a huge fan of its exterior appearance.
