Review

The BMW 5 Series Touring is quiet, smooth, classy, comfortable and well equipped. It’s also very practical, although it can't quite match the enormous boot that you get with a Mercedes E-Class Estate.

Trim: SE

This entry-level trim comes with all the essentials and quite a lot more on top. You get part-electrically operated and heated front seats, leather trim, a powered tailgate, a 12.3in infotainment screen, digital instruments, concierge service, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, ambient interior lighting, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, and 17in alloy wheels (18in with the more powerful engines). You only really need to fork out for adjustable lumbar support and adjustable dampers (Variable Damping Control).

Engine: 520d

This may be the entry point to the 5 Series range, but with mild-hybrid tech it has the best balance of performance (0-62mph takes 7.5sec) and running costs (114 g/km CO2 and 53.3mpg). It's also pretty refined and comes with BMW's excellent automatic gearbox as standard. Four-wheel drive is an optional extra.
