Long Island City BMW 5 Series | Queens Preowned Car Dealer
Since it was introduced, the BMW 5 Series is widely regarded as having set the bar for premium sport sedans and wagons. It arrived in the United States for the 1972 model year, and since that time the midsize 5 Series has offered a near-perfect fusion of performance, elegance and interior comfort due to the roomy cabin. Most BMW 5 Series cars you’ll find are rear-wheel drive; however, an optional all-wheel drive has arrived in recent years. Traditionally, the 5 Series featured an inline six-cylinder gasoline engine, but BMW has offered V8 versions since 1994, and the current generation now offers both a turbocharged four-cylinder and a diesel-powered inline-6. When experts are asked to rate their top picks for cars in its class, the BMW’s 5 Series, new or pre-owned, is perpetually high on the list. Although newer models will always draw those looking for the newest innovations, an older 5 Series cars is just as satisfying to drive.

The best years of this generation were 1994 and ’95 when BMW offered V8 power in the 530i sedan and wagon (215 horsepower) and the 540i sedan (282 horsepower). But when it comes to the golden era for the 5 Series, many purists and car enthusiasts will point to vehicles produced between 1997-2003. Superb on-road dynamics, exquisite furnishings, and unmatched sophistication came together in one finely styled package.
