The BMW 5-series puts an emphasis on the driving experience. Now in its seventh generation, this mid-size luxury car remains a true sports sedan by delivering aggressive styling, precise handling and outstanding safety. The 530e iPerformance is available in either rear- or xDrive all-wheel drive and features a 180-hp 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic combined with an 95-hp electric motor sandwiched between them. The electric motor is powered by a 9.2 kWh lithium-ion battery that together with the gas engine generate a combined output of 248-hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The plug-in hybrid system allows emissions-free electric driving around town. Standard features include leatherette upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control with active micro-filtration, power sunroof, a 12-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, 18-inch alloy wheels with run-flat tires, and a 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system with iDrive 6.0 and live traffic data.
