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.

2021 BMW M5 Overview

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor

What's New

The 2021 BMW M5 has been updated and now features fresh exterior and interior styling. Remote start, Android Auto smartphone compatibility, four-zone climate control, satellite radio, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster are now standard. Finally, the Competition trim level has been removed, but a Competition Package is now an option.

Choosing Your BMW M5

The BMW M5 sedan is available in one trim of the same name. It's priced from $105,495 including destination and a gas guzzler tax.

Engine Choices

The BMW M5 gives us all the feels with its 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that generates 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. Choose the Competition Package ($7,600) and performance reaches 617 hp.

Power routes to all four wheels by means of an eight-speed automatic transmission. This rear-biased model comes with paddles shifters and has a 0-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds, but that’s a conservative number – we think you’ll push sub-3 seconds with the Competition.

The M5 earns 15 miles per gallon city, 21 mpg highway, and 17 mpg combined, according to the EPA.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

True to its billing, the BMW 5 Series in every guise, including the M5, seats up to five. The front seats are thickly padded and bolstered with high-end hides. The rear bench seat is best for two, but three adults can sit back there without drama.

The trunk measures 14 cubic feet, which is below average for this segment.

Safety Features

The M5 comes with automatic high beams, adaptive LED headlights, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors.

A Driver Assistance Plus Package ($1,700) brings in such semi-autonomous features as adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and traffic jam assist.


This year, BMW replaces the previous 10.25-inch display with a 12.3-inch touchscreen display. Android Auto joins Apple CarPlay for the first time, and both systems are wireless.

The M5 sedan doesn't stop there. A head-up display, wireless charging pad, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, Bluetooth, four USB ports, wi-fi capability, HD and satellite radio, a cloud-based navigation system, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system are also included.

There's one spend-up option worth considering – the exquisitely wonderful Bowers and Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System ($3,400). This 16-speaker audio system supplies peerless sound management throughout the cabin.

M5 - From $105,495

When you offer one trim, the shopping is easy for the consumer. The M5 comes loaded, but that’s expected for a six-figure, high-performance sedan.

The exterior features 19-inch wheels, adaptive LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-folding and heated side mirrors, a rear spoiler, a hands-free power trunk, and an adaptive M suspension.

The cabin is roomy, bright, and laid out in exceptional materials, including high-end leather, metallic trim, and Alcantara. The upholstery and headliner are leather, the dashboard is leatherette. Fine woods or carbon-fiber trim are visually pleasing.

A long list of cabin amenities includes 20-way power front seats with lumbar support, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, four-zone automatic climate control, and ambient lighting.

The Executive Package ($3,350) adds massagers to the front seats, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a surround-view camera, a drive recorder system, and soft-close automatic doors..

CarsDirect Tip

Buying a 2021 BMW M5 means customizing one as you see fit. The Executive Package is the most sensible of the bundled options choices, though we think the Driver Assistance Plus Package warrants consideration as well.
