Generations

The 535i made its American debut in 1985 during the wildly successful second generation of the 5 Series, replacing the previous year's 533i. The 535i offered the largest engine BMW had ever offered in U.S. markets—a 3.4-liter six-cylinder with 182 horsepower—and set a precedent for the sportier 5 Series models that were to come.

The current 535i boasts advances like a 300-horsepower twin-turbocharged inline-six and an eight-speed automatic transmission. With a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.5 seconds, it will leave the original 535i in the dust.

Major changes included:

Increased fuel efficiency, an eight-speed automatic, and a beefed up design featuring a more pronounced BMW grille exemplified the sixth-generation BMW 535i. The new 535i released for the 2011 model year abandoned Macpherson struts to incorporate a newly developed multi-link suspension that improved handling.

Major changes included:

Considered to be controversial by long-time BMW enthusiasts, the fifth generation 535i introduced in 2004 made a radical departure from typical BMW design. According to the design team at BMW, flowing transitions were incorporated into the 535i's convex and concave surfaces creating a much more competitive and up-to-date exterior. BMW introduced Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with the fifth generation 535i.

Major changes included:

BMW debuted the fourth-generation 535i at the 1995 Frankfurt Auto Show and created much anticipation by not releasing the new model for sale until 1997. The 1997 535i inaugurated dual headlamps set under glass with light rings. The light rings would become part of BMW's marketing until 2000. The fourth generation 535i was the first worldwide production vehicle formed mostly from light alloy.
