Trim Level Performance

When choosing a BMW 5 Series, first, you will have to know which trim you're choosing. The BMW 5 Series essentially comprises three major trims: the BMW 530i, BMW 540i, and BMW 550i xDrive. Each trim has different attributes that make their performance different, but their quality unique amongst other models. Here are some of the things you can expect from each trim.


Although an all-wheel drive trim exists as the BMW 530i xDrive, the standard BMW 530i is a rear-wheel drive sedan that holds a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine. This powerful engine gives up to 248 horsepower for drivers who like to step on the gas more than others. It also gives 357 pound-feet of torque to increase steering power as you venture through Lake Forest, CA.

There's also an all-electric rear-wheel and all-wheel drive trim for the BMW 530i called the BMW 530e (rear-wheel drive) and BMW 530e xDrive (all-wheel drive). These electric sedans come with 2.0-liter BMW Twin Power engines with integrated electric motors that give up to 288 horsepower and 257 pound-feet of torque.

BMW 550i xDrive

The BMW 550i xDrive is the most powerful out of each trim within the BMW 5 Series. It has a 4.4-liter BMW TwinTurbo V8 engine that gives up to 523 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. It comes standard as an intelligent all-wheel drive running on performance run-flat tires for better terrain traction.
