2020 BMW 540i Sedan Specs

BMW 5 Series Sedan

Matching the 530i and 530i xDrive in terms of equipment, the 540i ups the ante in the power stakes with its 335-hp six-cylinder powerplant. Inside, Dakota leather upholstery is standard for a more luxurious feel, while the front sport seats have the same range of adjustment, including two-way power side bolsters and four-way lumbar support. BMW’s Connected Package Professional offers real-time traffic updates and on-street parking availability. Worth noting is that the popular M Sport Package costs $3,550 on the 540i, significantly less than the $5,000 if specified on the 530i.
