Long Island BMW 5 Series Lease Deals
BMW fans know that the 5 series, like other BMW products, has been in continuous production since 1972. Unlike American cars, the Germans have a thing for staying true to family pedigree and design motifs. The newest iteration of the BMW 5 Series is everything you'd expect from a top-tier, mid-size luxury sedan. But it's also unmistakably a BMW 5 Series. The grill and fascia are slightly redesigned for the latest generation, giving the car an aggressive, serious look. There are also more ducts, air channels and curves than in previous generations, giving the newest 5 Series a more formidable look. From the first time you set eyes on it, you know this is a performance car. And the technology under the hood delivers what the aerodynamic styling promises. The standard 5 Series, such as the 530i, comes with a rather petite 122 cubic inch, turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with an aluminum block. While it's somewhat incredible, even in today's world of computer-driven mechanics, that the engine produces more than 2 horsepower per cubic inch, it's perhaps even more so that only 250 horses can propel such a heavy sedan from 0 to 60 in less than 6 seconds. This is thanks to BMW's 10 speed automatic transmission, which delivers power seamlessly, with apparently no shift interruptions at all. The interior is nothing short of spectacular. The 5 Series cabin shares a great deal in common with that of its larger 7 Series cousin. Meticulous attention to detail is in evidence throughout the passenger compartment. The seats, both front and rear, feature areas of extensive cross stitching. The knobs have a solid, heavy feel, like those found in Rolls Royces or Aston Martins. And the current generation of the iDrive infotainment system has worked out most of the kinks and is, overall, very user friendly. The 10" touchscreen display, located in the center console, is one of the largest in the business. Needless to say, being a BMW, the 5 Series is chalk full of too many techno-goodies to mention. But the car is capable of limited self-driving, self-parking and it even has a gesture recognition system that obviates the need for actually finding buttons while driving. The 5 Series starts at $52,000 and goes as high as $72,000, for the loaded version with the larger engine.
