Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, or Mercedes-Benz E-Class – which would you buy?
Before I get into telling you about the new 5-Series – are you still mad at BMW for not offering Android Auto? Well, you no longer have to be because the 2021 BMW 5 Series gets standard Live Cockpit Professional with iDrive 7,
a 12.3-inch digital instrument display and a 12.3-inch digital central touchscreen control display. You also get standard navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Besides offering you all that good tech as standard, the 2021 BMW 5-Series gets a new look, a very slightly updated interior,
improvements to its aerodynamics, and the introduction of a new 48-volt mild hybrid system for the 540i and 540i xDrive.
Design wise, the new 2021 BMW 5 Series gets the larger BMW Kidney Grille with redesigned headlamps that we’ve seen on the new 3 Series.
The rear is highlighter by trapezoidal tailpipes and L-shaped 3D taillights. My personal favorite design upgrade is the new Verde Ermes color on the M550i xDrive. The M550i xDrive also gets a new Aerodynamic kit from the M Sport Package.
BMW is taking orders now with deliveries to start in July 2020. Prices start at $54,200 for the 2021 BMW 530i and top out at $76,800 for the M550i xDrive Sedan.
