The Legendary BMW 5 Series Gets a Few New Updates for 2021 and The Automaster BMW has Your Inside Scoop

With its signature sleek profile and unbeatable BMW performance, it's easy to see why generations of drivers have long gravitated to the BMW 5 Series sedan. It's been nearly five decades since this graceful car first appeared on Burlington and Hanover, NH roads, and The Automaster BMW in Shelburne is proud to be your local destination for purchasing or leasing one of your own.

What's New for the 2021 BMW 5 Series?

A continuation of its seventh remarkable generation, the 2021 model doesn't introduce any major overhauls or redesigns. But it does have a handful of nice updates that we think our customers here in the greater Stowe and Williston area will appreciate. Highlights include:

  • Updated design for the front grille
  • 48-volt mild hybrid power boost added to the BMW 540i and 540i xDrive
