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: M Sport

Hugely popular thanks to its sportier looks – inside and out – and bigger alloy wheels. However, you also get stiffer suspension that does nothing for ride comfort. SE trim is better value and is where our money would go.

Engine: 540i xDrive

This six-cylinder petrol is smooth, fast (0-62mph takes 5.1sec) and really lovely if you don't mind paying for petrol. In the real-world the 530d diesel feels just as quick and is much more economical. Comes with four-wheel drive as standard.
