Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW 5 Series estate?

There are many rivals to the BMW 5 Series Touring, but few manage to blend its depth of talents quite so well.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate gets close, mind you, and thanks to steeper depreciation, it works out to be slightly cheaper to buy. It may not be quite as accommodating in the rear for tall passengers, but its boot is massive and you can even add extra fold-up seats in there, turning this posh estate into a genuine seven-seater.

Overview

Big, practical and refined, the BMW 5 Series Touring is one of the finest luxury estate cars

  • Quiet ride
  • Interior quality
  • User-friendly infotainment
