Test drove 2024 G60 540i versus 2023 G30 540i



Yesterday I had the chance to check drive the 2024 G60 540i xDrive for a couple of good hour and having the ability to evaluate it to my 2023 G30 540i.

The 2024 540i mannequin was a regular sport trim with the bottom 19” all season none runflat tires and my 2023 540i is a regular sport trim with 18” OEM wheels I had put in about 6 months in the past so I might have 45” aspect profile Michelin none runflat tires as an alternative of the 19” runflats the automobile got here with.

I’d say that is an Apples to Apples comparability so I might decide the trip high quality and refinement the newer G60 offers.

The G60 540i undoubtedly has a barely extra refined trip over imperfections within the rode with much less of a linked feeling over Irregularities. The burden achieve wasn’t noticeable, it felt agile and responsive, most likely largely as a result of variable sport steering now normal within the G60’s. Steering felt lighter than the consolation setting within the G30 but it was very exact and correct. The G60 now comes with the identical tech that was launched on the 2019 3-series with the hydraulic-stop dampers and I imagine that is what makes the largest distinction within the enchancment over the G30. The brand new B58 engine has extra low finish energy and responds sooner.

The G30 continues to be an important automobile in areas that the G60 took a step again, resembling general inside supplies and high quality. Nonetheless, the G30 has extra of a standard BMW feel and look to it. Steering on the G30 has extra heft to it however is slower to react and doesn’t really feel as exact on the street. Suspension continues to be very comfy however not as absorbent whenever you encounter sure breaks within the pavement.

I’ve a sense that when my lease is over in 2 years that my subsequent transfer shall be into a brand new 540i.
