Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The weapons-grade M5 is a powerful piece of German artillery from BMW’s iconic M division. It sports a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 with 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The M5 faithful will lament the lost manual gearbox and unfamiliar all-wheel-drive system, but this Bimmer has a high-tech drivetrain that can disconnect the front wheels for pure rear-drive personality.

Pros
Astounding acceleration,
rediscovered involvement that doesn’t negatively affect refinement and luxury.

Cons
Stiff ride in Sport mode,
fake engine soundtrack remains,
the stick shift is dead.

The 2018 BMW M5 is a four-door, five-seat sedan. It comes in only one primary configuration, and is equipped with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to all four wheels.

PROS
Sharper handling from revised suspension
Boffo V8's prodigious thrust
All-wheel drive increases performance capability
Premium cabin packed with features

CONS
Daunting number of powertrain and suspension settings
Stiff on bumpy roads, even in Comfort mode
