The M5 is one of BMW’s flagship models and can easily seat five passengers, all while delivering plenty of power and speed from its V8. For 2021, the twin-turbo engine’s output remains at 600 HP and 553 lb-ft of torque, while the top-spec Competition iteration packs 617 HP and the same amount of torque.
Elsewhere we see adjustable suspension tuning and new shocks in the M5 Competition, making for a more fine-tuned ride. The Competition model also gets a “Track” mode, which turns off all driver aids and interior distractions such as music and the infotainment system for a more focused drive.
On the outside, the new M5 models have been given a more angular body that is most noticeable on the front and rear bumper, as well as a new set of LED headlights, a new kidney-shaped grille, and a rear apron that’s now offered in black.
All M5s now get a 12.3-inch infotainment display, which is over two inches bigger than the previous model’s screen, as well as wireless Android Auto functionality, natural speech recognition, and BMW’s cloud-based navigation system that makes for faster route calculation and live traffic information.
The base M5 starts at $104,495 USD, while the M5 Competition starts at $112,095 USD. Take a closer look at the cars above.
