Review

The BMW 5 Series is a brilliant, classy and wonderfully refined luxury saloon, with surprisingly low running costs if you go for the 530e plug-in hybrid or 520d mild hybrid. It's a more complete package than its chief rivals, such as the Audi A6, Mercedes E-Class and Jaguar XF.

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: 520d

This may be the entry point to the 5 Series range, but with mild-hybrid tech it has the best balance of performance (0-62mph takes 7.3sec) and running costs (108 g/km CO2 and 56.5mpg). It's also pretty refined and comes with BMW's excellent automatic gearbox as standard. Four-wheel drive is an optional extra.
