Tons of power: If there's one thing the BMW M5 has plenty of, it's power. With 600 horsepower from the turbocharged V8, this midsize luxury sedan is a rocket compared to the supporting 5 Series. This year's new Competition package ups the ante even more, with 617 hp. That's as impressive as the 3.2 seconds it takes for the M5 to accelerate to 60 mph.
Stable and sporty: If you're worried that the M5 is too powerful and raucous, fear not: It's actually just as easy to drive as the supporting 5 Series. Thanks to all-wheel drive, there's an abundance of traction to inspire confidence in a variety of conditions. That's not to say it's boring, because you can also switch to rear-wheel drive at the touch of a button if you're the type of driver who enjoys tail-happy plumes of white tire smoke.
Everyday usability: While the M5 delivers the kind of performance expected from smaller powerhouse sports cars, it avoids their notorious lack of practicality. You have enough room in the rear seats for adult passengers and it has plenty of trunk space for everyone's luggage. On top of that, the M5 is fairly comfortable, both in terms of ride quality and seating.
Should feel more special: The M5's cockpit distinguishes itself from supporting BMW models with some badging and red buttons, but otherwise, it shares a lot in common with more affordable vehicles. For a vehicle that costs double what a 3 Series runs, we expect a more noticeable difference. The materials quality is still good, we just wish the interior was as special as the M5's performance.
