Product Overview

The F90 BMW M5 is based on the G30 5 Series sedan. For its 2020 facelift, BMW has introduced a host of mechanical and aesthetic updates.
The new M5 features shock absorbers from the M8 Gran Coupe with a retuned chassis. The M5 Competition sits 7mm lower and includes further tweaks to the suspension setup. These updates ensure responsive and direct handling and allow the immense power from the S63 twin-turbo V8 to be put to the ground.
Like the facelifted 5 Series, the kidney grille now reaches lower, with a one-piece chrome surround. Bolder contouring and larger air intakes have been restyled in the front apron. Additionally, new L-shaped light tubes add a dynamic look to the updated LED headlights. Towards the back, the LED rear lights now have a 3D feel and provide a fresh take on the BMW L shape.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The new adaptive suspension setup, as fitted to our test car, seems to have calmed down the car’s formerly grabby, hardcore ride a little bit. BMW claims a worthwhile improvement to the way the car deals with small and medium-sized inputs, and reasonably so. The car retains a decidedly highly-strung, frisky handling feel, though.

Pros
  • Stylish looks
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Good handling
Cons
  • Fiddly infotainment system
  • Not the most comfortable to drive

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The M5 CS rides twice as well as the M5 Competition. It shines a real spotlight on the predictability and feel that have been missing from the F90 M5’s dynamic recipe thus far. It has the same versatility and adaptability of the regular M5, but it's capable of greater driver reward when you simplify its character.

Pros
  • Comfortable, stable ride
  • Impressive driver-configurable systems
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • More expensive than F90 M5

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The M5 CS lives up to its name and then some. Immediately you notice how calm the body is on the road. There's a tautness to the ride, but it doesn't come at the expense of comfort. It's when you call upon the CS's performance that the car's bespoke nature comes to the fore.

Pros
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Superb infotainment system
Cons
  • Lack of standard equipment

carmagazine[4]

Sentiment Score 86%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
In 4WD mode the M5 is still very rear-biased. On the road, in 4WD Sport mode with DSC switched off it still feels safe. This is the mode in which it would be fastest on track, too. Interior materials and quality are hard to criticise, and like the exterior it avoids being too gauche. Apple CarPlay preparation isn't standard, which seems a bit stingy on a near-£90k car.

Pros
  • Well-balanced, communicative handling
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Rivals are more rear-biased
  • No Apple CarPlay

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
BMW M5 is Competition-spec only from now in the UK. Max output climbs by 25bhp to an eye-popping 617bhp. Torque is unaffected, at a treestump-pulling 553lb ft from just 1800rpm. BMW says revised dampers makes the ride a little firmer for better body control when you're on it.

Pros
  • Punchy power
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Not as powerful as standard M5

Sentiment Score 87%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Even with the Competition's upsized 20-inch wheels and summer tires, the ride quality is so much better than before. The M5 Competition is still quick as hell, too, able to accelerate to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. The optional carbon-ceramic brakes are also kind of touchy, with hard-to-modulate characteristics.

Pros
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Comfortable ride
  • Good infotainment tech
Cons
  • Slightly stiff ride quality
