2019 BMW 5 Series vs. 2020 Ford Mustang


You do not have to be a BMW enthusiast to appreciate the beauty that the 2019 BMW 5 Series exudes. One look at it and you’re in love. Drive it and you immediately want to own it. Think of it as the perfect make that redefined BMW’s mid-size sedans. It now boasts of lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring and most importantly, an engine performance that will blow your mind. Meanwhile, the 2020 Ford Mustang comes close as a competitor because of its aesthetic features. Performance-wise and speed-wise though, it trails behind the 2019 BMW 5 Series.

Design & Style

Think of the 5 Series’ cockpit as a civilized space. Everything here oozes elegance. You get to choose from a 20-way multi contour front seats which are designed to adjust in every way imaginable. It does not end there. Many elements that are designed to improve the car’s interior comfort and ambience are optional. These include the faux leather dashboard upgrade as well as real cow sourced BMW leather upholstery.

2020 Ford Mustang does not give you much of a choice when it comes to design and style. Instead, it offers the usual faux leather seats. You may also have to sometimes stretch out to reach out essential adjustment knobs, courtesy of the interior design that is wanting. This is not the case at all with 2019 BMW 5 Series where everything is within reach.

Technology & Safety

Expect a sizeable 10.2 inch high resolution central display which is standard on all 5 series models. The display can be controlled by the touchscreen, BMW’s iDrive Rotary Knob or through voice commands. There’s more of course.  Automatic lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert and pedestrian detection are examples of the technological and safety extras that the 2019 BMW 5 series comes along with.

2020 Ford Mustang tries to play catch up as far as technology is concerned, but it doesn’t quit measure up to what 2019 BMW Series is all about. Apart from forward collision warning and lane departure warning, there isn’t much the model offers in terms of technology and safety.


Efficient, smooth, and powerful. That is how to describe the four cylinder engine in the 530i engine as well as its six cylinder engine in the 540i. By these two features alone, it is safe to conclude the 2019 BMW 5 Series commands power and authority on the road. Couple this up with the model’s intuitive eight speed transmission and you have a beast on the road raking in 248 horsepower. Now apart from speed, 2020 Ford Mustang does not really come close as far as performance is concerned.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 BMW 5-Series does not struggle to impress. It just does. It is pretty much all you need if you’re looking for a high performance sedan complete with comfort, class and speed. Its engine performance is remarkable pretty much the same way its fuel efficiency is.
