As part of the 5 Series, the new 2016 BMW 535i 0-60 is quite reasonable as it can sprint only in 5.6 seconds for its 2009 model. This car features only a slew of changes in feature availability. While it is true that all models are enhanced with Bluetooth and USB functionality, there is not much to call as game changer. And if you do not mind spending money for not having the hottest and newest wheels on the black, the 2016 BMW 5 Series will already please and satisfy you with the remarkably well-rounded luxury sedan.
Even so, the current-generation of BMW 5 Series has become a little different from the models that were released to debut for the 2011 model year. The current generation features a lineup of impeccably refined sedan that is comfortable and big, with an emphasis on luxury instead of sport. Therefore, it is reasonable for you to not to expect the handling engagement and precision any driving enthusiasts may wish to die for, but it doesn’t mean the 5 Series are lack of amenities. They have a spacious cabin inside, fitted with top-quality materials and a large number of high-tech features, comfort, and convenience.
The 5-pasenger 4-door luxury sedan is available in four trim levels. The BMW 535i aside, there is the lower 528i, the 535d for diesel powered version, and the higher 550i. If you spot the term “xDrive” following the names, it means the car is also equipped with all-wheel drive system. Other than that, this means the sedans are only with the base rear-wheel drive system pairing the powertrain. The 2016 BMW 535i is powered with a turbo inline-6 engine with 3.0 liters of displacement, rated at 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque.
Smoothness is what the engine wants to offer to you as you drive the 2016 BMW 535i. However, it goes without saying the diesel-powered 535d can also benefit you from better fuel economy with similar driving impression. Even so, there is the unlikely vibration that is caused by the automatic stop-and-start system, which is more obvious to feel in the 528i and 535d.
How the sedan never feels as precise or nimble as drivers will expect as they go around turns, even with the Sport settings engaged, may become another drawback to consider. The acceleration, however, is not that bad. It’s even considerably impressive with BMW 535i 0-60 in rear-wheel drive option can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, which is competitive in its class.
