Whenever consumers see a BMW cruising down the block, it's hard not to stare. With unmatched styling and incredible performance, it's no wonder why the car company is so popular among new and used vehicle shoppers.
Now consumers will have another model to drool over: the 2012 BMW 550i. Everyone here at Fields BMW Lakeland is more than excited to have the revamped 5 Series lineup in our inventory. We are confident that shoppers will not be able to take their eyes off of the model once they see it on our showroom floor.
2012 BMW 550i Details
The 2012 BMW 550i comes available as a sedan, xDrive sedan, Gran Turismo hatchback or xDrive Gran Turismo hatchback. All of these models are equipped with a 4.4L engine that produces 400 horsepower. If you're having trouble deciding which model version is the best for you, you're going to have to research further into other features besides powertrain.
If you're wondering what the "xDrive" means, it's BMW's way of distinguishing the models that offer a all-wheel-drive system. Once you've decided if you want that feature, you have to decide if you want the sedan or the hatchback. The biggest difference, besides body style, of course, is cargo space. Parents may prefer the hatchback, which offers a few more inches all around.
If you're still not sure what trim level you want, then leave it up to our knowledgeable and helpful sales staff. We will help you take a test drive and answer any questions you may have about the 2012 BMW 550i trim levels.

When it comes to safety, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash test results that will appease skeptical consumers who think that they have to sacrifice safety for style. The IIHS named the 2012 5 Series an IIHS "Top Safety Pick," which means it earned the highest possible score of "Good" in all crash tests and offers standard electronic stability control.
