Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The 5 Series Touring is a big car in the front. Leg room is on a par with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate and there's a touch more than you'll find in the Audi A6 Avant. There's plenty of head room, too, so even adding the space-zapping optional panoramic roof doesn't make it cramped for six-footers. And it's one of the widest estate cars in the front, which is why it feels airier and less 'fitted' than the more intimate interior of the E-Class. 

There's loads of storage space on top of the passenger space. The glovebox is a good size, there’s a lidded cubby behind the gear selector, two generously sized cup holders and big door pockets that'll accommodate a small water bottle each.

Seat folding and flexibility

Just like the driver’s seat, the front passenger seat has electrically adjustable height and backrest angle as standard, making it easy to fine-tune the perfect position. It gets electrically adjustable lumbar support, too, for fending off lower back pain on longer journeys.

With handy electric release buttons just inside the tailgate opening, you can flip down the 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats very easily. It's worth noting that V90 owners have to make do with less flexible 60/40 split-folding rear seats.
