2020 BMW M5 vs. 2019 Chevy Camaro


The 2020 BMW M5 is a beast that evokes fear in the hearts of all the other sports sedans. With an amazing horsepower of 600 the M5 accelerates ferociously. It has the ability to send the power to the hind wheels for drivers who do not like the all-wheel drive system. It is a big luxury sedan that features high-end technology. On the other hand, the 2019 Chevy Camaro is a work of art. There’s only a handful of cars that can offer the joy of driving the way the Camaro does. Running on a powerful engine, this formidable machine features track-focused equipment and a unique appearance.

Design & Style

The 2020 BMW M5 has a classy interior made of leather and characterized by sporty seats. The driver’s seat positioning is strategic for performance driving.  Features such as ambient interior lights, power adjustable steering, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel are standard on the M5. Its back seats have enough legroom and it offers more trunk space than its competitors.

The 2019 Chevy Camaro has an improved interior in comparison to its predecessors. It is made up of better materials that give it a modern look. It also has very comfortable front seats and a straightforward layout. The Camaro beats its competitors for being fun to drive. However, the back seats have very little space and the visibility is limited. There is also very limited cargo space.

Technology & Safety

The M5 features the latest BMW’s iDrive infotainment system. It can be manipulated by use of a rotary knob. It offers Apple CarPlay and a Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless device charging as well as a 16 speaker audio system. Rear-seat entertainment is optional.  Some of its key standard safety features are forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, and lane keep assist. Adaptive cruise control is also available.

The Camaro on the other hand, comes with the Chevy’s Infotainment 3. It features a large touchscreen that has an awkward downward angle. Nevertheless, the setup is intuitive and responsive. It also offers a Wi-Fi hotspot and Android Auto in addition to the Apple CarPlay. It offers very few drive assists and available features such as blindspot monitoring, forward-collision warning and rear parking sensors come at a price.


The 2020 BMW M5 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine. With a horsepower of 600 and 553 pounds per foot of torque, the M5 is both powerful and swift. It only needs 2.8 seconds to complete the dash to 60mph. Furthermore, it can send all its power to the hind wheels in order to allow for pure rear-drive. Driving the M5 is a lot of fun with the direct steering and perfect grip for cornering. It also comes with the comfort mode that ensures the cabin is quiet while you cruise gracefully on this luxury Bimmer. It gets a rating of 15mpg in city driving and 24mpg on the highway.

The 2019 Chevy Camaro features a V-8 engine that yields a horsepower of 455 and 455 pounds per foot of torque.  However it is way slower than the 2020 BMW M5. The base 275hp 4-cylinder engine requires 5.1 seconds to get to 60mph. This is twice the amount of time the M5 takes. However, poor throttle response accompanied by unpleasant sounds pull the Camaro down.  It earns 16mpg in the city and 27mpg on the highway.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 BMW M5 is a masterpiece that impresses with its high performance engine, all-wheel drive/rear drive ability, whisper quiet cabin and generous legroom and trunk space. Add that to the array of high-end technology and safety features it offers and you get a winning combination that is the M5.
