  • BMW M5: Old vs New
    The seventh-gen BMW M5 debuted for the 2018 model year with fresh exterior looks, an updated interior, competitive technology, more power, and a serious driveline update!
  • Exterior - Front End
    Up front, the M5 sees a more aggressive bumper, angular headlight LEDs, thicker grille surrounds, dual grille louvers, a CFRP roof, and an aluminum hood for less weight.
  • Exterior - Side View
    The side profile sees stronger body lines, thinner mirrors, revised M-specific wheels, and revised M-specific wheels. 20-inch double-spoke wheels are optional.
  • Exterior - Rear End
    Around back, the new M5 gets sleeker taillights with rounded corners, a revised fascia with more commanding overhangs above the exhaust, and a revised rear diffuser with four fins.
  • Dimensions
    As far as dimensions go, the new M5 has grown by 2.16-inches in length, 0.86-inches in height, and 0.47-inches in width.
  • Interior - Front
    The interior has been heavily revised with a new M-style instrument cluster, 10.25-inch floating infotainment screen, revised center stack, redesigned gear shifter w/ rocker switch, and a revised steering wheel with thinner spokes and a smaller central hub.
  • Drivetrain vs Competition
    The M5 gets a revised 4.4-liter V-8 that’s good for 591 ponies and 552 lb-ft, 38 horses and 51 lb-ft more than the outgoing model. More importantly, the M5 now gets AWD, a first for this nameplate.
