The BMW 525i is a midsize automobile manufactured by Bavarian Motor Works since 1972. BMW sells the executive car, now in its sixth generation, in touring and sedan body styles.
BMW’s “5” Series started the tradition of three-digit numbered names. The first digit signifies the model, while the following digits normally correspond to the size of the engine in deciliters. BMW adds letters as a suffix to define the fuel type, transmission or engine details and the body style. The “i” in 525i denotes (fuel) “injection” in the car’s engine.
The BMW 525i was Motor Trend magazine’s Import Car of the Year in 1997. BMW “5” series automobiles, including the 525i, appeared on Car and Driver magazine’s annual Ten Best list from 1997 to 2002. It was also the Executive Car of the Year between 1997 and 2002.
A 215-horsepower, 3.0-liter, six-cylinder, 24-valve engine powers the BMW 525i. A six-speed manual or six-speed “steptronic” automatic transmission with sport and manual modes controls the 525i’s power plant. BMW also offers a 525xi model that includes an all-wheel drive system.
