Introduced in 2017, the BMW 530i M Sport Saloon continues to stand out as one of the best luxury vehicles in the market. Its Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform and enhanced chassis ensure an optimal balance of lightness, rigidity, and strength.
This car utilizes the new Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform, which was first seen in the 7 Series (G11) saloon. The chassis is made of a mixture of various steel and aluminium (for most of the body panels, including the bonnet, door, and roof) to ensure an optimal balance of lightness, rigidity, and strength.
With the kidney grille and headlights directly linked, the 5 Series looks powerful, even when stationary. The low roofline, which slopes gently towards the rear, delivers an almost coupe-like silhouette.
The center console is slightly angled at the driver, thus allowing for a driver-oriented experience. The almost 2975 mm wheelbase translates to ample legroom for five adults. For its suspension, the 5 Series uses a double-wishbone front and 5-link rear setup, while the electric power steering is of the rack and pinion type.

Our BMW 530i M Sport Saloon is propelled by a turbocharged BMW TwinPower Turbo 2-litre engine. It produces 252 hp and 350 Nm. Equipped with 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, the century sprint is dispatched in 6.1 seconds. This is an excellent performance from a car that weighs more than 1.6 tonnes and is equipped with many features.
