Ownership cost

What used BMW 5 Series estate will I get for my budget?

Prices start at £18,000 for a 2017 model with a higher than average mileage. Increase your spend to £19,000 to £21,000 or more for a car with a below average mileage from 2018 or 2019, while £22,000 to £25,000 should find you a nice post-facelift 2019 example. Spend between £25,000 and £30,000 on 2021 cars, a little more in the higher specs. The starting price for 2022 models is around £41,000.

Road tax (VED)

You’ll need to be mindful of the original retail price of the car, because most 5 Series Touring would have cost more than £40,000 when new, therefore breaching the luxury car tax bracket. This means you'll have to pay the standard flat rate fee, plus an additional surcharge until the car is more than six years old. Current costs for cars registered after April 2017 and before April 2022 are £165 per year for the road tax and £335 per year for the luxury tax.

Servicing costs

BMW's servicing is marginally cheaper than Mercedes’s and generally on a par with other rivals'. However, your car's previous owner might have bought a service pack when the car was new; this covers all the routine maintenance of the car for the first three years or 36,000 miles. You can check BMW’s website to see if your 5 Series Touring is covered by one of these.
