Powerful engine: The M5's turbocharged V8 engine produces up to 617 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to vault to 60 mph in only 3.2 seconds. That's an impressive feat for a 4,400-pound midsize luxury sedan. Just as notable is how easy it is to achieve that kind of acceleration, thanks to the traction that comes from all-wheel drive and launch control.
Rear- or all-wheel drive: All-wheel drive is a welcome addition to this generation of M5s that debuted in 2018. It delivers plenty of reassuring traction and stability in any driving condition, though enthusiasts will likely prefer the challenge and theatrics of rear-wheel drive. The good thing is, you can switch between either with the touch of a button (if you pre-program one of the red M buttons to control this function).
Comfort and convenience: Just because the M5 is famous for its potent engine and sharp handling doesn't mean you have to sacrifice comfort. The M5's ride quality is firmer than the regular 5 Series, but not at all harsh. It's a good balance of compliance to soak up bumps in the road and stiffness to keep body roll in check when cornering. Adding to the experience are front seats that remain agreeable after many hours.
Not as luxurious as rivals: While the M5 is relatively comfortable and spacious inside, there's little to differentiate it from less expensive models in the BMW lineup. Aside from some aesthetic flourishes, the M5's cockpit could easily be mistaken for the smaller 3 Series, which has a similar dash and center console. The quality of materials is good, but for a car that cost more than $100,000 when new in 2021, we expect greatness.
