This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The BMW 530 puts an emphasis on the driving. This mid-size luxury sedan remains a true sports sedan in any of its variations, including the 530ix wagon and other models equipped with all-wheel drive. Regardless of engine size or equipment level, the BMW 530 delivers lively acceleration, precise handling and outstanding brakes. The 530i gets a 255-hp version of the 3.0-liter six and xenon adaptive headlights. The 530i comes standard with the six-speed manual. The six-speed Steptronic automatic and the six-speed sequential manual gearbox, or SMG, are optional. The 530xi Sport Wagon comes standard with the all-wheel-drive system. For 2006, the BMW 530 gets a power upgrade and all-wheel drive is available.
