The new BMW 5 Series is a better all-rounder than its direct rivals, combining a classy and user-friendly interior with impressive refinement and handling. Just bear in mind that some items of equipment that you’re likely to want are expensive options, and fully electric models (including BMW’s own i5) are cheaper to run as company cars.

M Sport trim is the cheapest available, and includes 19in alloy wheels, faux-leather upholstery, climate control, adaptive LED headlights, heated front seats and ambient interior lighting. It's our pick of the range, although we would be tempted to add the optional Comfort Plus Pack.

Thanks to an official pure electric range of 63 miles, the 530e plug-in hybrid is the cheapest BMW 5 Series – aside from the fully electric i5 – to run as a company car. And with a combined output of 295bhp from its petrol engine and electric motor, it provides all the performance you’re likely to want.
