Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2020 BMW M5 Overview

Matthew Pilgrim
Automotive Editor

The 2020 BMW M5 is an all-out sports sedan that continues to solidify its performance heritage and doesn't sacrifice the luxury expected from a six-figure BMW.

This year, a limited production model dubbed the M5 Edition 35 Years enters the fold. Only 350 units of this special edition will be produced globally, with just 35 of those allotted for the U.S. market.

Choosing Your BMW M5

BMW offers the M5 sedan in two trim levels: M5 and M5 Competition. The base model starts at $104,695 including destination and a gas guzzler tax, while the Competition is priced from $111,995.

Engine Choices

The M5 and M5 Competition utilize the same engine, though revised tuning for the latter makes for a wider power band and a faster sprint to 60 mph.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorque0-60 mph TimeFuel Economy (Combined)
4.4L Turbo V8600 hp553 lb-ft3.2 secondsNot Yet Rated
Competition 4.4L Turbo V8617 hp553 lb-ft3.1 secondsNot Yet Rated

All M5 models are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system that can send power to the front wheels as needed and works in tandem with the variable locking rear differential. For full-on shenanigans, the all-wheel-drive system can be directed to send 100% of the power to the rear axle only.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The M5 is suited for five passengers and 18.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity. Its relatively long wheelbase helps accommodate 40.7 inches of head room, 41.4 inches of front leg room, and 36.5 inches of rear leg room.

Safety Features

The M5 comes standard with blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors. Adaptive cruise control is available through the $1,700 Driving Assistance Plus Package.


The M5 features a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen that incorporates navigation, HD radio, SiriusXM, ione year of Apple CarPlay, and a wi-fi hot spot that can be operated via a center-console mounted iDrive controller, natural voice commands, and even hand gestures. The driver will also appreciate the 12.3-inch instrument cluster. Charging duties fall to the two USB ports and the wireless charging pad.

M5 - From $104,695

Notable exterior features on an M5 include a high-performance steering system, adaptive dampers, 20-inch wheels, adaptive LED headlights, and parking sensors. Inside, luxurious appointments include heated 20-way power driver and passenger seats, a heated steering wheel, ambient lighting, and a 16-speaker audio system.

The Executive Package is $3,650 and includes a surround-view camera, heated and ventilated front seats with massage functionality, heated rear seats, soft-close doors, and power rear window shades. A 16-speaker Bowers and Wilkins audio system is $3,400, while M carbon ceramic brakes add $8,500 to the bottom line and get the car ready for track duty.

M5 Competition - From $111,995

The M5 Competition trim receives notable chassis performance improvements like a lower ride height, stiffer suspension spring rates, directly mounted suspension components, and stiffer engine mounts. Unique 20-inch wheels, added high-gloss black trim, and Competition badges placed about the exterior and interior enhance the sense of exclusivity.

CarsDirect Tip

With the 2020 BMW M5’s selectable all-wheel-drive system, the sedan can easily serve year-round duty even if that includes heading to the slopes and the race-track. Ordering the Executive Package furthers its luxury car status, and there's no questioning the sports-sedan heritage engrained in every M5.
