The 528i sedan gets a 3.0-liter N52 inline-6 engine that makes 230 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 200 pound-feet of torque at 2,750 rpm. That is an increase of 15 hp and 15 lb-ft of torque over the outgoing 525i. The 535i sedan has a new optional sport automatic transmission that includes steering-wheel paddle shifters plus a sport button for quicker, more dynamic shifting. A sport package on the 535i includes 18-inch wheels and tires in staggered width, marking the first time such a feature has been offered on six-cylinder models, the automaker said.
