Performance in all 2015 5 Series models is good with strong acceleration even in the turbo-four-powered 528i; V-8 powered models rival some sports cars when it comes to straight-line speed. Driving dynamics are good for a car this size, with good steering and sporty handling that doesn't come at the cost of ride quality. The car's weight, however, means that its limits aren't as high as the previous generation. Refinement, on the other hand, is top-notch with little NVH, a quiet cabin, and a chassis that does an excellent job at keeping the passenger compartment isolated from outside noise.
Interior space is generous in both variants with a relatively roomy rear seat and a decent 14-cubic foot trunk with split folding seatbacks. Its shared underpinnings with the larger 7 Series gives the car a solid and refined feel with supportive seats that make it an excellent long distance cruiser. There are many available tech features in the 2015 5 Series including a head-up display, night vision, and a navigation system featuring a large screen with excellent graphics, and an available Bang & Olufsen sound system.
The Driver Assistance Plus Package adds blind spot warning, 360-degree view camera, and the Active Driving Assistant, which bundles together a number of safety aids including lane departure warning, automatic front emergency braking, and forward collision warning.The NHTSA gave the 2015 BMW 5 Series a five-star overall safety rating (out of a possible five stars; hybrid and M5 variants haven't been crash tested yet). In IIHS evaluations, the 2015 BMW 5 Series earned a Good score in three categories, Marginal in the small overlap front crash test (Good is the highest possible score), and Superior frontal crash prevention (front crash prevention designations include Basic, Advanced and Superior).
Since its 2011 redesign, the BMW 5 Series has lost quite a bit of its handling prowess due to it sharing its underpinnings with the larger 7 Series, making the car less sporty and more comfort-oriented. In a comparison test against six other midsize luxury sedans, the 535i placed second due to its driving dynamics not coming up to par with competitors like the Lexus GS 350 F Sport. We also noted in another comparison test between the high-performance M5 and the Porsche Panamera GTS that even the sportiest model in the 5 Series range falls short due to the car "driving too big," its inability to flow through corners, and artificial steering feel, which compromised the car's driving dynamics.
While it no longer excels at being a sharp-handling sports sedan, the 5 Series remains a competent luxury car with high levels of refinement and a quiet interior. In a 2012 First Test review of the 535i, we said that the car is more comfort-oriented with driving manners similar to how an old Mercedes-Benz drove. However, in 2012 First Drive review of a turbo-four-equipped 528i, we noted that the engine start-stop system's abruptness detracted from the car's overall refinement, sending vibrations into the cabin when turning off the engine as it came to a stop.
BMW 5 Series 2015 Review
The chance to sample a Professional Package-equipped 520d, as well as the Exclusive-equipped 535i, was offered at the local unveiling of the cut-price M5 Pure and limited-edition M5 Nighthawk and White Shadow variants.
The drive before us is relatively compact, but offers a range of surfaces and road types ranging from traffic-infested intersections through to some curves and driving at the state speed limit.
Given these packages do nothing to alter power, torque, efficiency or dynamics, the on-road feel is less of a priority; this is more a chance to sample the added comforts of either package.
First up is the smooth-yet-sporty 535i Sedan with the Exclusive package. For a $3800 outlay on this model, Exclusive adds auto soft-close door function, auto boot operation, leather-trimmed instrument panel from BMW Individual, comfort seats for front-row occupants with seat heaters, driving assistant plus, nappa leather trim, lane change warning, ConnectedDrive Freedom and electric rear window sunblinds, which are initially up for full display effect.
This particular car also has the $4700 M Sport package, $2000 metallic paint finish, $3200 glass sunroof, $1000 roller sunblind and $800(!) lumber support for the front-row occupants.
For years now the 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine in the 535i has been well-known for smoothness and a sonorous sound; in this reporter’s view it sounds nicer than the new M4.
What hasn’t happened, however, is an increase in output, remaining at 225kW/400Nm. In the 3 Series it remains brisk, but with the added weight of the 535i it now feels slow in the context of its competition. It’s also not especially efficient at 7.9L/100km (claimed) on the combined cycle; though expect returns in the 9.0L/100km range in regular driving.
On the M Sport suspension the 535i doesn’t like bumps, and instead transfers the vertical movement into the cabin. Other aspects of the 535i experience remain as before, a nice natural rear-drive balance and a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission.
As for the Exclusive package, the addition of soft-close doors is curiously uplifting. Simply, it makes the 535i feel even more premium, a feeling continued by the smell of nappa leather seats with their smooth electric adjustment, as well as the leather dash trim.
Combined with the added safety of the lane departure warning and the driving assistant plus, and it’s a far more valuable proposition than the more expensive and ineffective (from a dynamic standpoint, at least) M Sport pack.
Swapping for the 520d Professional, you lose some 85kW, but torque remains the same at an even 400Nm. You also save $33,100 and gain 3.6 litres of saved fuel for every 100km of driving.
Once again this particular vehicle houses the M Sport package, which at $6400 for the 520d is a large chunk of additional outlay. The $2000 metallic paint and $3200 glass sunroof are also present.
Plumping for the $3400 Professional package gains you an additional $12,700 of value and adds a head-up display, comfort access, auto-dipping mirrors, lane change warning, ConnectedDrive Freedom, driving assistant, surround camera view, digital radio capability and multi-functional instrument display.
Taken as an overall package, the 520d makes more sense, and the Professional kit adds convenience and safety, and that starts with the comfort access system which enables keyless entry and start. It’s something we take for granted today, and you could argue it should be standard on an $80,000 car anyway, but its addition is nevertheless welcome.
Convenience continues with the head-up display filtering key information and the auto-dimming mirrors adjusting for dazzle without you thinking about it. The surround view is a nice step, and even the digital radio addition is welcome.
On the road the diesel impresses with its smoothness and relatively unobtrusive engine note. There is also strong torque delivery on-tap and economy which settles in the 5.5L/100km vicinity. Of course, the eight-speed auto remains lovely to use.
There’s some turn-in reluctance but this isn’t supposed to be racy, even on M Sport suspension and large alloys. It does suffer from a similar lack of vertical movement control as its 535i big brother, however.
In essence, both Professional and Exclusive packages make a lot of sense for 5 Series customers. The value is clearly unlocked with either option, enhancing the usability of whichever model the package is added to.
Given the high cost of specifying stand-alone options – and the unconvincing M Sport package’s cost – we’d urge potential purchasers to make specifying these packages a priority.

2015 BMW 5 Series
Like a versatile actor, the BMW 5 Series is capable of playing many roles. It’s a comfortable commuter, a roomy family car, and a capable sports sedan. It offers dynamic performance and handling, and can carry four passengers easily without feeling too cavernous.
Changes for 2015 are minor, and include a few new standard features that previously cost extra like Bluetooth audio streaming, a leather sport steering wheel and LED foglights. Luxury and M Sport trim lines continue, the Modern Line is discontinued. The current-generation 5 Series was launched for 2011 and updated for 2014.
The BMW 528i is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder; the BMW 535i uses a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder. Line-topping 550i models use a 4.4-liter V8, good for 445 hp, and 480 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s the fastest of the bunch, and BMW says the 550i can speed from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
Perhaps our favorite variant is the diesel-powered 535d, which uses a turbocharged, 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that makes 255 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. Not only does it get an EPA-rated 26/38 mpg City/Highway, but diesel’s well-known range helped our 535d test car go more than 500 miles on a single tank, and that’s with spirited driving. Although it has a $1,500 price premium over the gasoline-powered 535i, those who travel long distances, especially at highway speeds, could be very satisfied with their return on the money.
The odd duck of the bunch is the Gran Turismo, which has more space for people and cargo, but whose high, boxy rear might not appeal to everyone. The GT’s wheelbase is four inches longer than other 5 Series models, with a long hood and a low, coupe-like roofline. The Gran Turismo comes in two versions: the 535i GT with the turbocharged inline-6, and the 550i GT with the V8. Each is available with xDrive all-wheel drive.
All 5 Series models come standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, materials and quality as are expected from a BMW, whose interior designs are often more interesting, with a variety of textures and colors, than the more austere Audi, yet not as daring as the swoopy, angular lines employed by Cadillac. Navigation comes standard on all models, as well as the iDrive interface, which uses a touchpad on top of the rotary controller that lets users draw letters and numbers with a fingertip, instead of scrolling through characters on the screen.
The performance-oriented M5 sedan is equipped with a 560-horsepower V8, available with a 6-speed manual 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters. Although it has the same amount of space as its more practical counterparts, the M5 feels tight and compact on the track, the sign of a well-engineered car. On an autocross course at BMW’s new Performance Center in Thermal, California, near Palm Springs, we turned the fastest lap of the bunch thanks to the M5’s powerful engine and lightning-quick dual-clutch gearbox. While others preferred to manually shift with paddles, we put it in Drive and let it do its thing. In Sport + mode, we had the perfect balance between slip and control, sliding around corners without knocking down cones.
Competitors to the 2015 BMW 5 Series are formidable, including the Audi A6, the Cadillac CTS, Lexus GS and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Those considering the 5 Series Gran Turismo might also consider the elegant Audi A7, with its superior looks and ample cargo space. Although in our book nothing matches the M5 on the track, those interested in a high-powered midsize luxury sedan could also consider the Jaguar XF-R and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.
The 2015 BMW 5 Series comes in two body styles: a four-door sedan and a stretched Gran Turismo, or GT. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel-drive xDrive versions are available. Five different engines are available.
BMW 528i ($49,950) and 528i xDrive ($52,250) sedans come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine; BMW 535i ($55,600) and 535i xDrive ($57,900) sedans use with a 3.0-liter inline-6; 550i ($64,900) and 550i xDrive ($67,200) sedans boast a 4.4-liter V8. BMW 535d ($57,100) and 535d xDrive ($59,400) models use a diesel-powered 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine. (Prices do not include $950 destination and handling.)
Gran Turismo body styles add four inches to the wheelbase and feature a sleek, coupe-like roof. Models include the 535i GT ($60,700), 535i xDrive GT ($63,000), 550i GT ($69,100) and 550i xDrive GT ($71,400).
All 5 Series models can be equipped with Luxury or M Sport lines, each of which feature distinct exterior and interior trim and features.
Standard equipment on the BMW 528i includes dual-zone automatic climate control, vinyl upholstery, 10-way power front seats with four-way power lumbar, power tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, driver memory function, pushbutton start, cruise control, split-folding rear seats, the iDrive infotainment interface with smartphone app integration, navigation, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 10-speaker sound system with CD player, HD radio, auxiliary jack and iPod/USB connectivity, power sunroof, automatic wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, heated exterior mirrors, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, LED foglights and 17-inch wheels.
BMW 535i and 535d models are equipped similarly, adding leather upholstery and 18-inch alloy wheels to the above features.
BMW 550i upgrades further with 20-way power front seats with four-way power lumbar, sport steering wheel with paddle shifters (along with a sport-tuned version of the automatic transmission), front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera.
The BMW M5 sedan ($93,600) makes 560 horsepower from its 4.4-liter V8, and comes standard with a choice of 7-speed dual clutch automatic manual gearbox or 6-speed automatic. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, 16-way power sport front seats, heated front seats with memory settings, and split-folding rear seats, the iDrive infotainment interface, a navigation, with voice activation, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system with a six-CD changer, HD radio, an auxiliary audio jack and iPod/USB connection, power sunroof, driver-adjustable adaptive suspension, adaptive xenon headlights, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, auto-dimming mirrors and19-inch alloy wheels with summer performance tires. The M5 Competition Package bumps horsepower up by 15 thanks to a specialized exhaust system and adds a rear M differential, more aggressive steering and suspension tuning, black chrome tailpipes and unique 20-inch wheels.
Safety equipment that comes standard on all 2015 5 Series includes front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, active front head restraints, stability control, traction control, antilock disc brakes, and the BMW Assist emergency telematics system with a 10-year subscription, which includes automatic crash notification. Optional safety features include the Driver Assistance Plus package, which adds an upgraded camera that shows a full picture of vehicle surroundings, blind-spot warning, a lane-departure warning and forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection. The optional night-vision system can display possible hazards in the road the driver might not see otherwise.
After a mid-cycle refresh last year, the lines of the 2015 BMW 5 Series are more sculptured than in the past, though the design is still unmistakably BMW. The signature twin kidney grille juts out ahead of the wraparound headlights, which are lower profile and more slanted than in past generations. Lower air intakes now house standard round LED foglights, which were previously optional.
The 5 Series sedan cabin is set considerably to the rear, giving its profile a slightly wedged, coupe-like forward-thrust shape. A strong, sharply creased character line runs from behind the from wheel arch and into the upper corner of the wraparound tail light housing. The signature Hofmeister kink in the rear side window’s aft edge is, of course, ever-present. Wheel sizes and choices depend on the model; the Luxury and M Sport Lines use their own unique wheels, and other styles can be ordered a la carte.
Gran Turismo models are longer and have a curvier, more coupe-like roof shape. Its most noticeable difference from the standard 5 Series is its big, high boxy rear end.
The M5 is distinguished by a more aggressive aerodynamic treatment, including wide lower front air intakes, chrome-trimmed side outlets, more flared rocker panels and a decklid spoiler. Quad exhaust tips sit beneath the lower bumper. Standard wheels are 19-inch M-style alloys.
The interior of the BMW 5 Series doesn’t disappoint. In typical BMW style, the center stack, gauges and controls are oriented toward the driver. Controls are well placed, with the driver-only functions situated to the left of the steering column or on the wheel itself. Climate controls and ventilation are easy to reach. And unlike some of the less expensive BMWs, trim pieces are well integrated, of quality materials, and don’t look stuck-on like in some configurations of 3 Series and 4 Series.
Standard front seats in 5 Series sedans have 10-way power adjustment. Larger adults will feel comfortable in the spacious seats, although those of smaller stature may have a tough time getting comfortable, and could feel like they’re sloshing around on twisty roads.
The standard upholstery on 528i models is vinyl, but it looks good and doesn’t appear cheap. The Dakota leather found on more expensive models is nice, though we prefer the optional (yet more expensive) Nappa leather. In sedans and GT models, there isn’t much bolstering to hold you in during hard cornering, even with the optional Sport seats, but that’s nicely taken care of in the M5, which will cradle your every move.
Instrumentation includes four classic circular gauges set against a black panel. We think the BMW’s gauges are beautiful.
Navigation standard on all models. Paired with BMW’s iDrive interface, the nav is easy to use, once you get the hang of it. With the optional head-up display, navigation guidance can be read on the windshield just above the steering wheel. We especially like the touchpad that sits on top of the iDrive rotaty controller, which allows users to draw letters and numbers instead of scrolling through characters on the display screen. It’s faster and less frustrating.
Rear-seat passengers have adequate space; the 5 Series sedan offers 38.3 inches of read headroom, about on par with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan, and more than the Cadillac CTS or Lexus GS. Rear legroom measures 36.1 inches, more than the Cadillac CTS or Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan, but slightly less than the Lexus GS.
Cargo space in BMW 5 Series sedans is 14.0 cubic feet, slightly less than the Lexus GS and Mercedes Benz E-Class sedan, but more than the Cadillac CTS’s 13.7 cubic feet.
Gran Turismo models are better for hauling people and cargo, with 39.9 inches of rear headroom and a plentiful 40.6 inches of rear legroom. Trunk space measures 15.5 cubic feet with all seats in place, up to 60 cubes with the rear seats folded down.
All BMW 5 Series sedans are chic, crisp and balanced. Though they are perhaps too big and heavy to use as a weekend track car, their excellent dynamics and agility make them assertively proactive and manageable when faced with the necessity of an emergency avoidance maneuver, making them excellent family sedans.
The BMW 528i, 535i and 550i models are all highly competent and balanced, with exceptional poise and pace. Though BMW touts all its cars as having near-50/50 weight distribution, there is some wiggle room between the models. The BMW 550i, with its V8 engine, is the most nose-heavy, with a 52.5/47.5 percent front-rear weight distribution; the 535i with its I6 comes in at 50.9/49.1 percent; and the 528i scores 49.4/50.6 percent with its lighter engine. So it’s no surprise that the 528i handles the best. The others make up for the difference with more power.
We found the BMW 535i and 550i to be controllable at high levels of acceleration, stopping and cornering on the racetrack. But the BMW 528i displayed exemplary quickness and agility, which was also noticeable on the street. Optional adaptive suspension improves handling further, as it constantly manages ride and handling based on the current road surfaces.
The 535d is powerful, smooth and capable. As expected from a diesel engine, it provides plenty of low-end thrust. We took our 535d on a road trip from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and tackled the hills between the Inland Empire and the desert with ease, passing scores of other vehicles slogging up the steep inclines. Compared to old diesel vehicles, noise and vibration from the 535i is much reduced, though we did notice its distinctive rumble around town at low speeds, and recognized its unmistakable sound from around the block when it was delivered by the valet.
Another advantage to the 535d is its marvelous range. We got about 500 miles on a single tank, and that was mostly while driving with a heavy foot in Sport mode. EPA fuel economy estimates for the 2015 BMW 535d rear-wheel-drive model are 26/38 mpg City/Highway and 30 mpg Combined. During our excursion, our mileage, according to the trip computer, ranged from 27 mpg to 31 mpg, averaging 30.0 mpg for our 500-mile trek.
All 5 Series models, with the exception of the M5, use an 8-speed automatic transmission. Shifts are smooth and comfortable, and hold higher revs in Sport mode for more spirited driving. The two highest gears are considered overdrive, so cruising in high gear in Comfort or EcoPlus mode on the freeway can help with fuel economy.
Steering on the 5 Series cars is electronic and uses variable ratio tuning, which makes it comfortable and stable on highways and straightaways, yet more precise and responsive around corners and for low-speed maneuvering.
Like most BMWs, the 5 Series use BMW’s automatic Stop/Start technology, which stops the engine when the car is not in motion to conserve fuel, and starts the engine again when the driver takes her foot off the brake. While earlier versions of the system were abrupt and uncomfortable, we find the system has improved, even though it’s still noticeable.
The M5 is totally different than the other 5 Series models. It starts with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine tuned for a hearty 560 hp and 500 lb.-ft. of torque available over an amazingly wide power band, from 1500 to 5750 rpm. It can go from 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. Electronically controlled dampers, M-specific Servotronic steering, a stability control system with M Dynamic Mode, active limited-slip differential, high-performance compound brakes, suspension structure and sub-frame mods, and more.
Transmission choices include a 7-speed, dual-clutch automated manual or a traditional 6-speed manual gearbox. While old-school purists swear by the stick shift, BMW’s dual-clutch box is not only faster, but more fuel-efficient.
Although it has the same amount of space as its more practical counterparts, the M5 feels tight and compact on the track, the sign of a well-engineered car. On an autocross course at BMW’s new Performance Center in Thermal, CA (near Palm Springs), we turned the fastest lap of the bunch thanks to the M5’s powerful engine and lightning-quick 7-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. While others preferred to manually shift with paddles, we put it in Drive and let it do its thing. In Sport + mode, we had the perfect balance between slip and control, sliding around corners without knocking down cones.
Summary, Prices, Specs
The 2015 BMW 5 Series remains one of the best midsize luxury sedans on the market. The diesel-powered BMW 535d offers maximum range, while the odd but practical GT offers the most passenger and cargo space. The M5 serves up power and track-ready handling.

Review 2015 5 bmw series
Sweaty bodies. Wet and shiny member of Artyom, flying into the girl. Everything merged in the ecstasy of two bodies.BMW 5 Series review (2010 to 2016) - What Car?
Marinka obeyed in surprise, spreading her thighs and arms, revealing unprotected intimate charms. Uncle Lesha turned the shower head into massage mode, maximized the pressure and directed it directly to the open pussy. Marinka screamed, jerked and tried to bring her legs together. Uncle Lesha jerked her by the hair and slapped her lightly: - Listen, you. Fool, and bear with me.

We burst into tears about the love of all the girls of the course, Serega A.who died in Chechnya. In general, the usual idle talk of women who have not seen for many years. At the end - somewhere around 11 o'clock in the morning Lenka's acquaintance came and began to send us out.
