The fuel-efficient BMW 528i are more efficient than some bread-and-butter midsize sedans—yet they're a lot more exciting to drive.

Thanks to a new, more economical four-cylinder engine introduced to the lineup last year, the BMW 5-Series is now one of the greenest picks among mid-size sport sedans. Its EPA ratings, of up to 22 mpg city, 34 highway, with the eight-speed automatic, stand out and even compare to the ratings of some far less exciting models.

The 535i is a good compromise for those who want more performance but don't have much tolerance for a guzzler. ratings for the turbo six are 20 or 21 mpg in the city, and 30 or 31 on the highway.

And beginning with the introduction of a new-generation twin-turbo V-8 in the 550i, these models are much-improved for 2013, with the 550i gaining up to 5 mpg on the highway, for tatings that range up to 17/25 for the 550i and 16/24 for the 550i Gran Turismo.

In general, Gran Turismo models do lose some mileage, due to additional weight and less effective aerodynamics, but you might find the tradeoff in additional practicality worth it.

 

Conclusion

The fuel-efficient BMW 528i are more efficient than some bread-and-butter midsize sedans—yet they're a lot more exciting to drive.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
