November 15, 2011 – Irvine, Calif. – Irvine BMW is excited to confirm, J.D. Power and Associates, best known for its customer satisfaction research on new-car quality and long-term dependability, names the new BMW 5 Series the “Most Appealing Midsize Premium Car.”
The 5 Series Sedan scored its highest points in Overall Performance and Design, Performance, Comfort, Features and Instrument Panel and Style.
“With a new, fresh and safe design, the F10 5 Series has already exceeded the company’s sales expectations and remains a strong product around the world,” said Darren Richie, General Manager.
In the United States, BMW offers three models, the entry-level 528i with a four-cylinder engine that just went on sale, the more powerful 535i with a twin-scroll turbocharged six-cylinder engine and the top model 550i with its V8 twin-turbo powerplant.
The 2.0-liter produces 240 hp at 5000 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque from 1250 rpm. That matches the horsepower figure for the old six and surpasses it in the torque department with 30 additional lb-ft, peaking 1350 rpm earlier. A ZF eight-speed automatic will be the only transmission available, although the 2012 528i will see the addition of xDrive all-wheel drive as an option. BMW estimates a fuel consumption of 24/34-mpg city/highway.
