The BMW 5 Series is a brilliant, classy and wonderfully refined luxury saloon, with surprisingly low running costsread the full model review
This entry-level trim comes with all the essentials and quite a lot more on top. You get heated leather seats, a 10.2in sat-nav, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, and 17in alloy wheels, so only really need to fork out for adjustable lumbar support and split-folding rear seats.,
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.
