The BMW 5-Series has a long history that stretches back to 1972, when the 520 hit the market with its 115-horsepower, 2-liter powerplant. Throughout the years, the 5-Series has become one of the most advanced and performance-packed mid-size sedans on the market. This trend continued in 2012 with BMW's introduction of a hybrid variant dubbed the ActiveHybrid 5.
Coming into the 2013 model year, the ActiveHybrid 5 carries over essentially unchanged from its debut. The only addition of note is a standard universal garage door opener.
The 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 has only a single trim level, but there's nothing spartan about it. Standard features include: four-wheel antilock brakes; stability control; speed-sensitive steering; 18-inch wheels; fog lights; xenon headlights; rain-sensing wipers; 10-way power front seats wrapped in Dakota leather; dark wood trim; a moonroof with one-touch operation; four-zone climate control; an auto-dimming rearview mirror; ambiance lighting; an AM/FM/CD/MP3/HD Radio audio system with 180 watts and 10 speakers; Bluetooth connectivity; and a three-spoke steering wheel wrapped in leather with controls for the audio system, cruise control and Bluetooth.
29 mpg city and 34 mpg highway, powerful V6 powertrain and a lower price, but lacks the BMW pedigree
Great fuel economy, low price tag and faster to 60 mph, but stiff ride and polarizing styling
Better highway mpg, nearly $10,000 cheaper and outstanding ride, but uses pricey diesel fuel
Loads of power, good highway mpg and fully loaded, but almost $100,000 and only seats four
