Review

The BMW 5 Series is a brilliant, classy and wonderfully refined luxury saloon, with surprisingly low running costs

get the best price

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, too – it's where our money would go.,

Engine: 520d xDrive

This may be the entry point to the 5 Series range, but it has the best balance of performance, price and running costs. It's also refined and comes with BMW's excellent automatic gearbox as standard. Four-wheel drive is an optional extra.
