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

SE is our pick. It's well equipped with 17in alloy wheels (18in on the more powerful versions), leather seat trim, heated front seats, front lumbar adjustment, dual-zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, cruise control, a powered tailgate and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. You also get 12.3in digital dials, a 12.3in infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, sat-nav, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera. The best bit is that you avoid the stiffer suspension that comes with M Sport trim.

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.
