The BMW 5-Series is completely new for 2017, with a new platform that is longer and taller and stuffed with technology. None of that changes the excellent drive dynamics and performance of the 5 Series and with the 2017 BMW 530e iPerformance, that’s further augmented by the powerful efficiency of a plug-in hybrid.
When we think of hybrids, we usually think of something like a Toyota Prius or a Chevrolet Volt. Neither of which are particularly well-known for their performance. For the Germans, though, that’s not good enough and BMW’s iPerformance line has been shaking up the standard perception of plug-in vehicles by offering efficient designs in driver-centric packages.
