Introduction


The BMW 5 Series is one of those standard-setters; the kind that people used to benchmark other full-size sedans and for a good reason too. The 5 has been well loved the world over by BMW loyalists and jaded journalists. It has gone through triple-digit speeds from its home on the German Autobahn to weaving through crowded streets of third-world nations where it chauffeurs government officials and dignitaries, for decades the 5 has been a mainstay. BMW has debuted an all-new 5 series for 2017 which are complete with an updated design, an architecture which is shared by the large 7 series, and driver technology than ever. The 5 series’ new seventh-generation boasts of a new M Performance model for 2018 – the BMW M550i xDrive.


0-60 and Engine

The 2018 BMW M550i xDrive can be understood if you think about it like this: its similar to the 550i but with its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8, suspension, steering, and brakes reworked by the go-fast gurus at BMW’s M Performance division. And of the seventh-generation 5 Series (G30) M5 isn’t available till March of 2019, out of the M550i can be considered as the baddest 5. The M550i xDrive and upcoming M5 have a lot in common is something worth pointing out.

The two will have the same V-8; however, the M5’s will have more power attributed to the presence of large turbos and higher-flow fuel injection system, among other advancements. The M5’s have sticker tires, this means their suspensions will have to use bushings to match the tires. The M5 will be allocated more driver control over the xDrive system and drive modes. The M5 has a track-focused performance that will go with an aggressive appearance. The M550i will still be a 456-horsepower beast which is capable of reaching 60 mph in roughly 3.9 seconds and nevertheless treats its passengers to opulent luxury fitting a more dedicated cruiser.
 

Exterior and Interior

This vehicle has a default comfort mode setting where the suspension is softer, the engine quieter, and the steering lighter. In comfort mode, the eight-speed delivers a pretty creamy shift, and the M550i becomes relaxed and takes on a luxurious vibe, even though the engine is no less potent. It basically feels like a 7-series. The all-wheel-drive system has been tuned for this application just like the transmission. BMW will not offer any specific torque splits, and they said that the system as an effect of the situation demand would distribute torques intelligently and with a rear-wheel bias. And that is what the wet secondary roads between Salzburg and Munich feel like.

Even up front, the traction seems endless. Not only is there no telltale sign through the steering wheel but the front tires also drive this sedan, this gives you an organic feeling. It also gives you the sense of as if it is a rear-wheel drive. This vehicle will make you think you’re better than you thought and it encourages the use of a little left-foot trail-braking.
This model also has a specification of the Adaptive M suspension with 0.4-inch-lower ride height and automatically adjusting anti-roll bars. This sedan has a minimal body roll, but there is just enough to inform you of what is going on at the tires as they load up and the vehicle starts to move. The ride is luxurious, especially on polished roads. It’s tuned well for daily use, even in Sport+ mode.

Even though some might consider the steering to be unnecessary heavy in Sports+ mode, the ratio is right; in BMW’s modern fashion, though, there could be more feel. The M Sport brakes use blue-painted calipers which feature M badging and offer a strong and enough feel as well as a firm pedal. Other exterior modes of the 5 are subtle. The vehicle has a small rear spoiler, high-gloss black trim around the greenhouse, and a titanium finish on the front fender vents, mirrors, and grille surround. The M Sport tailpipes are of course black chrome. The interior comprises it’s mostly standard-issue 5-series, including the 20- way-adjustable power multi-contour seats. The blue contrast stitching (when optioned with black leather), an M Sport steering wheel, unique aluminum trim and pedals, and illuminated doorsills dials up things a bit for the M Sport. And before we forget, the M floor mats.
 

Verdict

When the M5 roars onto our shores in a few months, the moniker ''fastest 5-series ever made’’ will be a quickly fading memory. The M5 is likely going to sell for around six figures – to start – and its ultimate-performance-above-all persona will not be everyone’s style. This is where the M550i xDrive will naturally step in. The vehicle is monumentally fast, delivers handling grins without beating up your backside hence doing a deft job, has all luxurious appointment or convenience features, and the price tag on it begins slightly over $73k. Call it ‘’M5 Lite’’ if you must – but, really, this is a sports sedan of its own.
