Québec is getting hit with the Arctic Blast, and we're seeing how well the 2020 BMW M550i xDrive Sedan handles this winter storm.
This week we're looking at the G30 BMW 5 Series M Performance version, known as the M550i xDrive. For 2020 this executive car receives a performance boost with it's 4.4L twin-turbo V8 producing 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Our full tour and review of this $97,000.00 luxury sedan goes over what you need to know about the 2020 BMW M550i xDrive if you plan on daily driving it throughout the winter.
Our full tour and review of the G30 M550i goes over the exterior design and features found on this car, along with the interior design and layout. We discuss how this vehicle compares to the recent 2020 BMW 750Li xDrive sedan we featured and how it translates from the E39 BMW 5 Series. We discuss the different options and packages selected on this press vehicle, and what kind of testing we're going to be doing with this executive car.
We then take the 2020 BMW M550i xDrive on a winter storm road-test during the 'Arctic Blast' that hit the eastern regions of Canada & The United States, to see how the M550i performs in the snow, along with the xDrive all-wheel drive system, and the Pirelli SottoZero 3 winter tires. We do some real-world testing to see what drivers can expect with this vehicle, and how the tires work in snow.
We then do a second real-world driving segment with a more performance angle doing some 0-100km (0-60mph) testing along with launch control.
We wrap up our episode of TestDrive Spotlight on the 2020 BMW M550i xDrive Sedan with our real-world fuel economy testing, what we liked about this vehicle, and some of the things we hope to see improved.
