The BMW 5 Series has often been regarded as the sport sedan of sport sedans. It's just-right size, effortless power delivery, European driving dynamics and luxury accoutrements make the midsize overachiever a great car for road trips. Now, those miles can be gobbled up while using less fuel with the ActiveHybrid 5, which delivers an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway.

The inline six-cylinder engine features a twin-scroll turbocharger and an electric motor -- the ActiveHybrid 5 can accelerate to 37 mph on the electric motor alone. A head-up display keeps a driver's eyes on the road by projecting current speed and nav system directions. The available night vision camera helps to identify pedestrians or animals while driving in the dark. When the ActiveHybrid 5 is parked in the hot sun, you can even cool it down remotely before entering.

Major changes included:

For the 2012 model year, BMW added a hybrid variant to its 5 Series lineup and dubbed it the ActiveHybrid 5. On the outside, the first-gen ActiveHybrid 5 retained the same design language as the base 5 Series, and had no distinguishing details except for badges. Under the hood, the ActiveHybrid 5 carried a 3-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder with an electric motor. This system produced a total of 335 horsepower through an eight-speed automatic transmission, and it could travel up to up to 2.5 miles at 25 mph on electric power alone.
