On the technology front, BMW continues to push the envelope. The 5-series BMW offers eight-row automatic transmissions for you to choose between four-wheel drive rear or four-wheel drive. First, in the 530i and 530i xDrive (four-wheel drive), there is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower and 258 pounds of torque, making it a competitor to other midsize luxury cars.
Next, the hybrid components 530i iPerformance and 530e xDrive iPerformance can also work with 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines with turbochargers, but they have also been upgraded with electric motors to increase the system’s total output to 248 hp. The torque is 310 lb-ft. However, the additional hybrid in the Volvo S90 T8 has more power at 400 HP and 472 lbs of torque.
