BMW 5 Series

Best Used BMWs

If you're interested in a bigger sedan with the same spunky spirit, a midsize used BMW 5 Series may interest you. It can fit up to five people and their belongings comfortably inside the cabin. It also boasts first-rate power and handling, making it an exciting vehicle to drive.

A pre-owned 5 Series can come with Active Steering. It adjusts the steering ratio as your drive and allows the rear wheels to turn with the front at high speeds and opposite them at lower speeds. This results in:

  • More precise steering at lower speeds for tight cornering.
  • More direct steering at highway speeds for increased stability

This isn’t a sedan that hides in the garage when rain and snow come out to play. It can also come with xDrive, BMW's intelligent all-wheel-drive system. It automatically redistributes power to the wheels with the most grip. This action is done instantly, giving you peace of mind as you take on those slicker roads.

You’ll find a ton of helpful driver-assistance features in a used 5 Series. One of the most impressive is Park Assist. It can take charge and park the vehicle automatically in either parallel or perpendicular spots.


If you opt for a used BMW X3, you'd have a luxury compact SUV that provides a reliable performance for you and your family. It all starts with the standard TwinPower Turbo Inline 4-cylinder engine, which generates around 240 horsepower.

A BMW X3 is also an efficient option if you need a used SUV that’s going to help you skip the gas station. Its compact size and 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission help it achieve around an EPA-estimated 21 city/28 highway MPG with most configurations.1

There’s a ton of comfort inside the BMW X3, too. The available heated front and rear seats are there so everyone can stay cozy on those chillier days. You’ll also be able to prepare for a nice road trip with some of the following comfort amenities:

  • Nevada Leather upholstery
  • Panoramic moonroof
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Automatic climate control
  • 8-way power adjustable front sport seats

Speaking of road trips, you have plenty of packing options in a pre-owned BMW X3. Most models offer over 63 cubic feet of storage space. Additionally, the rear seatbacks fold down in a 40/20/40 split, allowing you to customize the space to your needs. You can even add an available cargo net and roof rails to further organize your tagalongs during your next summer trip to the campground.

You’ll find room inside a used BMW X5 for all your friends, family, and even coworkers. There’s seating for five, along with over 40 inches of front headroom and over 38 inches of headroom in the back, so everyone will have space to stretch out.

Premium comfort and technology are the names of the game for any used BMW X5. The iDrive system—available with most model years—puts the world right at your fingertips. You’ll have control over the system with the 10.2-inch touchscreen or the iDrive Controller. They’ll give you access to available features, including:

  • iPhone® connectivity
  • BMW Apps
  • BMW Assist eCall
  • Concierge Services
  • Bang & Olufsen® High-End Surround Sound System

BMW i3

Do you want to go all-electric? You can with a used BMW i3. It comes as a purely electric vehicle but can be equipped with a range extender. This small gas-powered generator is not connected to the drivetrain. Instead, it will work to recharge the battery during those long road trips.

A used BMW i3 will come powered by eDrive: A BMW innovation. This model is fun to drive and efficient. You can look forward to even more perks, including:

  • One Pedal driving
  • Brake Energy Recuperation
  • 0 to 60 MPH acceleration time of seven seconds

It’s easy to charge a pre-owned BMW i3. You can use the Home Charging Station when you get back from work. It’ll give you a full charge in about 3.5 hours. If you choose a public DC Charging port, you’ll get an 80% charge in 20 to 30 minutes.
