2019 BMW 5 Series vs. 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost


The 2019 BMW 5 Series is a one of a kind mid-sized sedan. What was once a driver’s delight in other models is now more of a pronounced and bold boulevard cruiser – one that is complete with posh interior, ample cargo space and most importantly, a fiercely strong engine.

Enter the new and upgraded four cylinder 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost and without a doubt the 2019 BMW 5 Series has a worth competitor, at least on paper. The Ford model features a somewhat feisty turbocharged 2.3 liter inline engine. Note that much of the engine’s concept and model was heavily borrowed from the now defunct Ford Focus RS. Still, one cannot help but notice how the 2019 BMW 5 Series reigns supreme where engine performance, safety and suspension issues are concerned.

Design & Style

Luxurious extras and a scintillating design make the cockpit of the 2019 BMW 5 Series a modern civilized space. It appeals to anyone with a rich style and a deep taste of all things luxurious, as far as cars are concerned. It is by all means a noticeable upgrade compared to the somewhat average drab cabin of its popular predecessor. You’ll notice a design so deliberate in comfort that it makes it easy for rear seat passengers to get in and out of the car with minimum ease. You get to enjoy a one of a kind 20 way multi contour front seats that can adjust in 16 different ways. You also get to choose quite a number of elements that improve the 5 Series interior ambience, such as faux leather dashboard upgrade, real leather upholstery and LED lights.

The new 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost is well known for its design. Rightfully so, it features an evolutionary design that ploughs back to old Mustangs all while managing to be fully functional, livable and aesthetically appealing. It is not a blend of the old and new but rather a meeting point. You get to enjoy leather seats, ambient lighting and reachable extras such as the stereo and other adjustment knobs. One vital thing though, it just isn’t as spacious as the 2019 BMW 5 Series.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 BMW 5 Series makes a bold statement when it comes to technology and safety. It boasts of adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring complete with rear cross traffic alert and automated emergency braking complete with pedestrian detection. It is fact safe to say the car safety features are not just meant for the driver alone but for other road users as well.

Not much can be said of 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost. Other than its standard emergency braking, it features average safety features. Its lane departure and lane keeping assist appear to be the models main highlights.


The six cylinder in the 540i as well as the four cylinder in the 530i motivate the 2019 BMW 5 Series with authority.  They two cylinder systems pair with a powerful 8 speed automatic transmission designed to shift quickly and intuitively. It responds within seconds, making the model an extra ordinary sedan on the road.

With a modern engine capable of churning 280 horsepower, the 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost is like already mentioned, 2019 BMW 5 Series’ worthy opponent.  It also features a standard six speed manual transmission. But like they say, it all boils down to the details. That’s where BMW beats Ford here. While formers engine is both fast and intuitive in response, the latter’s engine isn’t.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 BMW 5 Series seems to have everything you would need in a luxury sedan. From speed and comfort all the way to safety and performance, it has it all. 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost on the other hand has style and quite a number of aesthetic extras to show off. When it comes to what matters though, which is all about performance and safety, 2019 BMW 5 Series steals the show.
