What's the used BMW 5 Series estate like?

Put simply, the BMW 5 Series Touring is one of the finest estates around, and not just because of its boot.

It's a great choice for keen drivers who need a practical load-lugger, providing agile handling, incredible poise and a range of strong, smooth engines. Every 5 Series Touring also has self-levelling rear suspension to ensure that heavy loads don't affect its road manners.

Drivers will be comfortable behind the wheel, thanks to a wide range of adjustment, and there's plenty of space for three in the back.

The well shaped boot is big, although the rear seats don't fold completely flat when you want to extend the load bay. Some cars are fitted with the optional electrically operated tailgate, which is a useful touch.

The interior looks and feels classy, and every car is luxuriously equipped. Yes, there are cheaper estates out there, but the 5 Series oozes prestige and is a delight to drive.
