The BMW 5 Series is the German firm’s mid-size saloon that is full to the brim with technology. The 5 Series features an interior heavily borrowed form the 7 Series, but scaled down to fit. Buyers have a whole host of technological options but, the award winning iDrive comes as standard. However, can the 5 Series match the desirable look and interior of the Mercedes E-Class? It may be able to beat the Mercedes for ride quality, but is it as fun to drive as the Jaguar XF?

We can finally confirm that Nissan is building a new SUV, and it's called the Terra. The Japanese carmaker made the announcement earlier this morning. The Terra is set to make its global debut in China (which will also be the first market to get it) later this year, and will be the first vehicle from Nissan's frame and light commercial vehicle (LCV) division. Division vice president Ashwani Gupta describes the Terra as a rugged, practical and 'authentic' SUV designed to get anywhere. "Nissan's frame and LCV business is seeing steady growth, and with our ambitious midterm plan and growing product lineup, we're confident that this growth will continue. It is an exciting time for Nissan. We have the Nissan Terra arriving soon, the award-winning Nissan Navara is now in 133 markets worldwide, and more drivers are purchasing our LCVs around the world," Gupta added. Official photos reveal a front endowed with large fenders and a muscular fascia, typical midsize SUV proportions, and an overall aesthetic similar to that of the Nissan Navara. The same goes for the interior. Actually, if we're being honest this thing looks a lot like Nissan's popular pickup truck offering--not a bad thing. The company also released a short teaser video on YouTube (see below) showing off the Terra taking on some dirt, mountain twisties, and snow. Nice. Frankly, the Terra has been an open secret since last year. Photographs of the vehicle have been circulating online for quite some time already, including alleged photos of a Terra unit being tested right here in the Philippines. Considering our market's strong passion for the midsize SUV segment, we wouldn't be surprised at all if Nissan Philippines brought it over to compete with the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Montero Sport, Isuzu MU-X and Ford Everest. So, is a new contender joining the battle? We hope so.
THE LAST WORD IN LUXURY Luxuriously appointed, innovatively advanced, and imbued with legendary performance. The 740i and 750i earned their prestigious place in the BMW lineup. HORSEPOWER 320 / 445 0–60 MPH 5.1s / 4.3s 2018 BMW 7 Series: New Car Review For a luxurious sedan, the 2018 BMW 7 Series is a heck of driver's car. If there's any such thing as a bargain at this giddily expensive level, the 7 Series might be it, because it's like two cars in one. To recline in the back is to be pampered, stretch out and enjoy more rear legroom than the regular Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Or you could sit in the driver's seat and have a surprising amount of fun. And as well as a full-size flagship, it's a technological masterpiece. This is the most spacious sedan BMW has ever made, yet it's around 190 pounds lighter than the previous generation. Much of that is because of the frame's radical construction. High-strength steel, die-cast aluminum and carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) are all placed in optimum locations. The relatively thin A-pillars (for modern cars) have tubes of CFRP inside them that run from the top of the hood, over the doors and down to the trunk. An aluminum hood, trunk lid and door panels are then hung on this frame. There are computers, cameras and sensors to make the car safer and more convenient than a 7 Series has ever been before, along with a standard-issue air suspension for total comfort and fine-tuned composure. What's New for 2018? Some renaming and restructuring of active driver aid packages. What We Like Cutting-edge construction; fabulous engines; high-class appointments; remarkable suspension What We Don't Nothing beyond the amount of dollars required to buy one How Much? $84,095-$157,695 Fuel Economy The 740i has a 3.0-liter inline-6 engine turbocharged to produce 320 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates fuel consumption at 21 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined when using the default rear-wheel-drive setup, or 20 mpg city/29 mpg hwy/23 mpg combined with optional all-wheel drive. The 750i uses a turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 developing 445 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. Again, rear-wheel drive is the basic setup. Fuel consumption is rated at 17 mpg city/25 mpg hwy/20 mpg combined, or 16 mpg city/25 mpg hwy/19 mpg combined with the all-wheel drive system. Both versions have active grille shutters contributing to aerodynamic efficiency. The 740e xDrive iPerformance plug-in hybrid version combines a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack (located under the rear seat) for a system total of 322 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque driving all four wheels. EPA ratings are 64 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) on the combined cycle. Electric-only range is 14 miles. When using just the combustion engine, it's estimated to achieve 27 mpg combined. The M760i xDrive has a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V12 generating 601 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Fuel consumption is 13 mpg city/20 mpg hwy/16 mpg combined. The Alpina B7 xDrive makes a similar amount power -- 608 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque -- from a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8. All-wheel drive is standard and fuel consumption is quoted as 16 mpg city/25 mpg hwy/19 mpg combined. Standard Features & Options Although not badged as such, the 2018 BMW 7 Series is the long-wheelbase version, offering maximum rear passenger space. BMW doesn't bring the shorter version into the United States. The 740i ($84,095) comes with a comprehensive list of standard equipment. This includes 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED lighting inside and out, adaptive air suspension, quad-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, selectable drive modes, keyless entry/ignition, hands-free trunk operation, twin-panel panoramic sunroof, soft-closing doors, 10-way power-adjustable/heated front seats with driver's-side memory settings, parking sensors front and rear, rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 10.2-in display and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system with satellite/HD radio and a pair of USB ports. The 750i ($97,395) has 19-in alloys, upgraded leather, power sunshade for the rear window, and 20-way multi-contour front seats. This model can also come with all-wheel drive, badged as the 750i xDrive. Both versions are eligible for the Autobahn package, which uses cameras to read the road surface and then prompts the computer-controlled suspension to react accordingly. It also includes variable-ratio steering and rear-wheel steering (known as Integral Active Steering).

A fleet of 200 #BMW Series 7 limousines for the wedding of HSH Prince Albert II of #Monaco. These limousines are used on an exclusive basis to shuttle the High personalities invited by the Principality during the festivities of Saturday the 2nd of July - with the exception of the members of the Royal family.
The BMW 5 Series has been on sale in the US since 1975. A complete redesign for 2017 brought it into its seventh generation. For 2019, not much is new except for the loss of the diesel-powered 540d, which is in step with BMW's recent announcement that it would not offer a diesel in its lineup this model year.
The 5 Series offers a choice of four powertrains that can power the rear wheels or all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. For starters, in the 530i and 530i xDrive (all-wheel drive), there's a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which is competitive with other midsize luxury sedans.
Next up, the 530e iPerformance and 530e xDrive iPerformance plug-in hybrids are also powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, but in addition, are augmented with an electric motor that brings total system output to 248 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. That's stout, but the Volvo S90 T8 plug-in hybrid packs more huff and puff with 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque.
The turbocharged 3.0-liter, straight-six-cylinder 540i and 540i xDrive are good for 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, while the M550i xDrive with its 4.4-liter, turbocharged V8 makes 455 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.
The base 530i gets an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon in the city and 34 mpg highway. All-wheel drive reduces those figures by 1 mpg. The 530e gets 72 MPGe, 29 mpg combined and has a 16-mile all-electric range while the xDrive version achieves 67 MPGe, 28 mpg combined and can go 14 miles on electric power alone. For reference, the aforementioned gas-only models return 27 mpg combined.
According to EPA estimates, all-wheel drive does not affect the 540i's fuel economy, so all six-cylinder 5 Series sedans are rated at 21/29 mpg. The V8 M550i xDrive has yet to receive official fuel economy figures.
The least expensive 5 Series' fuel economy is about the same as other 2.0-liter, turbocharged midsize luxury sedans. The Audi A6 achieves 25/34, while the Jaguar XF has identical figures. The Mercedes-Benz E300 is less efficient at 22/30, but the the 2.0-liter version of the Volvo S90 has fuel economy that's identical to the 530i.
Inside the 5 Series, there's enough room for up to five passengers. At 18.7 cubic feet of trunk space, the 5 Series sits on the upper end of the class, while plug-in hybrid versions make do with 14.5 cubic feet. That's still better than many competitors except the Jaguar XF with up to 19.1 cubic feet. The Audi A6, meanwhile, offers only 14.1 cubic feet. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Volvo S90 have even less trunk space at 13.1 and 13.5 cubic feet.
Most players in this class offer limited standard interior and driver safety tech, but the 5 Series bucks that tendency with standard Apple CarPlay (although Android Auto is absent) on a 10.2-inch touchscreen that can also be operated via BMW's iDrive rotary-dial interface.
Also standard are natural-language voice recognition, real-time traffic/parking monitoring, a 12-speaker, 205-watt audio system with HD radio, and embedded navigation with a 200GB hard drive. Standard driver assistance systems include pedestrian-detecting collision-mitigation braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and driver fatigue monitoring.
