Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series underwent a little bit of a model shakeup, as Bimmer introduced the 530e iPerformance and the M550i xDrive to the lineup. With the dust still settling from this motion, we expect no significant changes when the 2019 5-Series hits showrooms.
2019 BMW 5-Series Design
At this time, we expect no changes to the BMW 5-Series’ looks. This should not come as much of a shock, as the midsize sedan simply went through a substantial redesign– substantial in BMW terms, a minimum of– in 2017. This brought in a larger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior also went through a huge change, acquiring makeovers and 1.2 inches of extra rear leg space.
With the appearances carrying on, we likewise expect no changes to the 5er’s basic features. If this proves to be the case, look for it to consist of 17-inch wheels, a moonroof, dual-zone climate control, an 8.8-inch digital instrument cluster, LED headlights leatherette upholstery, a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and lots more.
2019 BMW 5-Series Engine
We anticipate the 2019 5-Series to roll in with the same myriad of powertrain choices as before. For referral, the base 530 includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horse power and 258 pound-feet of torque. Moving into the 530e includes an electric motor to a somewhat de-tuned 2.0-liter engine for a total output of 248 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque.

2019 BMW 5-Series Safety
Safety capabilities are strong in the present 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. Remember, however, the greatest ranking comes only with the optional Frontal Collision Warning with Extended Collision Mitigation that’s part of the Driver Assistance Plus II plan. We expect this to all remain the very same in 2019.
2019 BMW 5-Series Pricing & Release Date
There is no main word on the 2019 5-Series’ arrival on display room floorings, however we anticipate to see it in the late summertime of 2018.
