Welcome to the Future: The 2017 BMW 5-Series

January 30th, 2017 by

The BMW 5-Series has long been considered one of the most dominant and dynamic players in the midsize luxury sedan segment. However, in the ever-changing landscape of today’s luxury auto market, adaptation is key. Luckily, with its 2017 model year, the BMW 5-Series has been fully redesigned, making design and engineering refinements that BMW enthusiasts are sure to love, while adding a whole host of new features that make it a great model for those looking to get behind the wheel of a BMW for the first time.

For fans of the BMW 5-Series, BMW has focused its efforts on refining the features that best resonated with drivers, most notably its light yet sturdy architecture and competitive performance credentials. The 2017 BMW 5-Series is built on a new platform, which is markedly lighter than that of the outgoing model, yet still supports the models’ increased length and height, making it great for those in the Long Island area who’re looking for a roomier, more comfortable cabin in their luxury sedan. What’s more, the 2017 5-Series comes available with two new engines: a base turbocharged 248-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an available twin-turbo 335-horsepower 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine. Both powertrains can be had in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, and output considerable power while still boasting respectable fuel economy figures that’ll delight many Long Island drivers. However, perhaps the best thing about the new 2017 BMW 5-Series is its host of new technology features, including forward collision mitigation with automatic braking, semi-automated steering, and even a remote parking functions that can be operated from outside the vehicle.

The times are changing in the industry, and once again, it seems that the 2017 BMW 5-Series will set the standard to which all of the midsize luxury sedans will aspire.
