2023 BMW M550I PRICE
The 2023 BMW m5501 price is comfortable and, depending on the trim, a very fast midsize luxury saloon with several great driver aids and technological features. We expect a completely redesigned 5 Series to go on sale next year, so this year’s model is the same as last year’s, barring a few minors but (to some) potentially significant changes. The good news is that wireless phone charging is back as an option after it wares canceled in 2022 due to supply chain issues.
The 2023 BMW M550i 4dr Sedan AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A) can be purchased for less than the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (aka MSRP) of $80,895.
- The Parking Assist Package is now only available on the M550i trim
- Gesture controls are no longer available
- The wireless phone charging standard is back up after being dropped for 2022
- Part of the seventh generation of the 5 Series introduced for 2017
Onto the bad news We usually accomplish mentions that seem minor changes to package availability, but it is worth noting that the Parking Assist plan is no longer available on the 530i, 530e, or 540i — another likely offering from the supply chain.
That means no automatic parking and no automatic low-speed braking when manually parking. But that also means no built-in dash-cam function (BMW Drive Recorder) means no surround-view 3D camera system. We love that system. In our initial ranking of 2017, we called the 3D display “the most impressive feature of the Series 5”.
The 530i, 530e, and 540i still get a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors as standard equipment. But if you want a look at the front-facing camera and the features it enables, you’ll have to jump into the performance-focused trim of the M550i.
That may not seem like much, but even small changes can make all the difference if you’re spoiled for choice. The midsize luxury sedan segment is packed with extraordinary, options: There’s the luxury master class that is the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the fun and sophisticated Audi A6, the spacious and impeccably designed Volvo S90, and many more. While there’s a lot to like about the 2023 BMW 5 Series, it’s a bit lost in the segment the 5 Series used to define. Check out our test team’s Expert Rating for all the details.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Rich designation and nice design make the cockpit of the five series a civilized space. there is a marked improvement from the rather drab cabin of its predecessor. It’s also spacious for rear-seat passengers and features an impressive amount of technology. We experience the optional 20-way multi-contour front seats, which adjust in every way imaginable and provide hours of comfort. Standard seats may not be as indulgent, but you can still customize them in 16 ways. BMW’s large trunk space is on par with what it’s competitors offer, loading six pieces of luggage in the back. That said, the cabin lacks cubes and storage compartments. To accommodate the battery pack, the plug-in-hybrid 530e has four cubic feet less luggage space than the non-hybrid model and swallows two fewer carry-on bags, but at least retains its folding rear seats, unlike many other hybrids.
How about the BMW m550i? If driving experience matters to a five Series is the sedan to consider. Most of the models were well-rounded performers. In our test, the four-cylinder 530i managed 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds, a fine showing for a base machine. We also tested the 540i xDrive and recorded an impressive sprint of just 4.6 seconds.
Our 530i test had surprisingly smooth M Sport brakes, which stopped the car from 60 mph in just 108 feet, an impressive result for a mid-size luxury sedan. The steering wheel is well weighted but a little numb. Fortunately, the chassis is balanced and communicative.
How comfortable is the BMW M550i? The BMW m550i is a very comfortable car, especially with the optional multi-contour front seats. We were also impressed with the quality of the ride — it’s comfortable and relatively soft but well damped so it doesn’t feel like floating. And while there is a bit of incoming road noise, there’s no wind noise and the engine is barely audible while cruising.
Our only problem with the climate system is its capability to keep us cool. While the dual fan speed and dual temperature controls offer a lot of variety, the fan speed is never strong enough to deal with extreme temperatures.
