In the right specification, 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.get the best price

M Sport Edition adds even more visual garnish, including 20in wheels, black rather than chrome exterior trim, blue M Sport brake calipers, adaptive LED headlights and it has adaptive suspension, which improves the ride greatly. It's costly, though.

If you want more grunt than you get in the entry-level 520d, then the brawnier six-cylinder 530d Touring has it in spades; it’s effortlessly quick (0-62mph in 5.6sec) and, in everyday driving, just as rapid as the more powerful 540i petrol while still offering excellent fuel economy. It's not as quiet as the E400d but it still sounds good.
