What's the used BMW 5 Series like?
The BMW 5 Series has always been a popular choice for company car drivers and fleet managers, so there's plenty on the used market. It also has a reputation for reliability and reasonable running costs, and is great to drive.
The 5 Series has a sporty feel, yet the ride is compliant and composed. The optional sports suspension is noticeably firmer, however, so take a thorough test drive before you buy.
The interior is a pleasant and stylish place to be, with excellent build quality, while a wide range of steering wheel and seat positions ensure most drives can get comfortable.
There's room for three in the back, but the large transmission tunnel reduces legroom from the middle seat.
Similarly, the boot is big, but the shape of the opening means loading can be tricky.
