2011 model year changes

For 2011, BMW's 5-series has been given a complete redesign. Now in its sixth generation, the car is slightly longer and wider, up by 2.3 inches and a half inch, respectively, while the car's styling is much more conservative than the previous generation. The engine lineup has been changed as well; the 535i's 3.0L 6-cylinder dropped to a single turbo but now makes 306 horsepower, and the 550i receives the 7-series' twin-turbo V8, which produces 407 horsepower. A 528i model, with a non-turbocharged version of the 3.0L six making 240 horsepower is expected later in the 2011 model year. All three can be had with a 6-speed manual, but an 8-speed automatic is also available.
