This Year's Model Updates:

The 2014 BMW 5 Series lineup expands to include the diesel-fueled 535d sedan, which features a turbocharged, 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the V8-powered 550i now makes 443 horsepower, up from 400 last year. BMW has also added Luxury and Modern equipment lines to give shoppers more opportunity to customize their cars. You'll also notice minor exterior styling revisions, and inside you'll find slightly more storage space along with new options like a personal concierge service and a rear entertainment system. Finally, a navigation system is standard across the board this year, and the iDrive controller now supports freehand text entry.

Pros:
  • Wide variety of powertrain options
  • 535d's outstanding fuel economy.
  • Elegant interior is well built and packed with high-tech features
  • Supportive front seats
  • Spacious backseat
Cons:
  • Not as sporty or engaging to drive as some rivals
  • Small trunk
  • Automatic stop-start system is intrusive.

    Love this car. Its a 2014 535d M sport with several extras. Engine is amazing. Everything is designed right. First car i would label as perfect, and i am critical. Fuel economy is excellent (doing 28.3 mpg in mostly city driving) and with diesel here between midgrade and premium it is nice to spend liitle on fuel every month. The exterior is beautiful. Have the M sprt version in carbon black. Interior also beautiful and i drive now working really well. Navigation display is big showing traffic and will propose alternate routes. I drive button now allows to write destination. Works very good. Dashboard, steering wheel and instrument panel are just beautiful. Heads up display works great and shows nav instructions very clearly. My wife has a 2014 Audi Q7, looks nice outside but is inside nowhere near the 535d. Recommend you drive this car, in specific the diesel, when you are in the market for a luxury sport sedan. Would highly recommend buying one. Everyday this car puts a smile on my face, like driving a new car from the lot daily.
