What We Like

The impressive tech; the exquisite balance between comfort and control

What We Don't

Electric-assisted power steering imparts a somewhat artificial feel, but that's the case with almost every manufacturer's EPS system

Overview

What's New in the 2019 BMW 530i?

Advanced driver aids like forward-collision mitigation with automatic braking, blind spot monitoring and lane-departure alerts are now standard throughout the range. Previously a $300 option, Apple CarPlay is available through a free 12-month subscription. Front and rear parking sensors are also standard, while options bundles receive a shake-up. For example, the LED fog lamps have been removed from the standard equipment list and are now part of the M Sport package.

Which 530i is the Best?

Ideally (and people with a BMW 5 Series on their list of possibles can probably afford to make many things ideal), the 540i with the extra driver-assistance features and the Bowers & Wilkins audio system would make a great choice. However, we also commend BMW for not charging extra for the 530e plug-in hybrid, whose fuel economy and power output bring a best-of-both-worlds proposition. Find a BMW 5 Series for sale

Competition

2019 BMW 530i vs the competition

2019 Audi A6 -- All-new for this year. Comes with a gorgeous cabin that offers state-of-the-art technology.

2019 Cadillac CTS -- Home-grown luxury and handling; world-class car.

2019 Jaguar XF -- Winner of a "best sedan" award from Germany.

2019 Lexus GS -- Even Lexus has upped its sportiness with the GS, but it's being overtaken by younger rivals.

2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- Offers an array of semi-autonomous technology as well as many other autobahn-worthy talents.

Used Porsche Panamera -- Even greater prestige and driving abilities than a 5 Series. A certified pre-owned (CPO) example of a first-generation model (a new generation debuted for 2017) could be about the same as a well-stocked 5 Series.
