2019 530i xDrive Performance Specs
As a luxury sedan, this vehicle gives you a smooth ride that absorbs road bumps with ease. However, since the 530i xDrive is a BMW, you’ll also get tons of power, agile handling, and sharp steering. It’s that optimal blend of comfort and athleticism that makes this vehicle so fun to drive.
The 2019 BMW 530i xDrive comes with a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that delivers 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission, giving you the best of both worlds—the feel of a manual with the ease of an automatic.
All in all, there are various features that contribute to this vehicle’s impressive performance. One of them is Driving Dynamics Control, which lets you choose between modes like ECO PRO, COMFORT, and SPORT to get your experience on the road just the way you want it.
Another beneficial feature is xDrive, the intelligent all-wheel-drive (AWD) system found in this luxury vehicle. It continuously monitors road conditions and can sense excess slip. The moment it does, it’ll send power to the wheels with the surest footing, giving you maximum grip on even the slickest surfaces.

Inside the 2019 530i xDrive, you’ll find premium materials that let you know this vehicle is a true luxury automobile. SensaTec upholstery, a type of leatherette, comes standard in the vehicle. Combine that with an Anthracite headliner and Fineline Ridge Wood interior trim, and you have quite the sophisticated cabin.
There are a lot of amenities available as well, which can keep everyone in the cabin happy. These include:
- Heated/ventilated front seats
- Heated rear seats
- Heated steering wheel
There are also 16-way power front sport seats with 4-way lumbar support, enabling you to quickly and easily get into that ideal seating position.
