The 5-Series hasn't changed much since two years ago, when BMW redesigned this model at the heart of its lineup and moved it closer to its sport-sedan roots. The new 5-Series also led a new design direction, moving on from the era of controversial design and to a new kind of straightforward, more upright classic-sport sedan designs.

With more window area and a lower beltline, the 5-Series follows tradition in its profile yet keeps with modern detailing. Perhaps most notable is the strong lower beltline crease that extends all the way to the back. The BMW kidney grille now sits a little lower and more up-front than before, flanked by beautiful new jeweled LED headlamps. There's a good deal of additional expression in other details; the hood is a little curvier, a new taillight design swoops upward at the sides, and the hood itself includes outwardly flowing contour lines.

The 5-Series is packed with enough performance-related technologies to make any serious enthusiast wary; but rest assured, the driving experience feels remarkably connected and direct, and the turbocharged engines that BMW has introduced to the lineup the past several model years are every bit as responsive as their predecessors, if not more so.

Last year BMW put a new turbocharged 4-cylinder in base 5-Series four-doors. In the 528i the unit turns in 240 hp as well as 260 lb-ft, with peak torque arriving at an early 1,250 rpm, and the well-sorted 8-speed automatic transmission makes the most of it, responding quickly when needed. Start/stop on this version cuts off the engine when the car pauses or stops at lights. Combined with a brake-energy capture and other tech that saves fuel, this 5er gets EPA ratings of 23 mpg city, 34 highway. It doesn't sound as good as an inline-6, but the 528i is an eager performer, one that's more frugal than the old 6-cylinder base model.

With the 2013 BMW 5-Series, what you see really is what you get. If you've owned other sport sedans, you can pretty effectively guess how much space there is in this mid-sizer from the outside; on the other hand, if you compare it to the mainstream models like a Honda Accord, back-seat space is clearly tighter.

In virtually every other way, the 5-Series serves its purpose well, as a comfortable, quiet luxury sedan that's fitted with some of the best materials in the business--in some cases, every bit as good as what you'd find in the 7-Series flagship.

Front seats in the 5-Series are supportive and comfortable, as we've come to expect from BMW. The seats have extendable lower cushion supports for taller drivers. Even on base models, they're the kind that you could rack hundreds of miles per day in--even with a problematic back.
