Review

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

get the best price

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.,

This six-cylinder petrol is the fastest 5 Series on paper, but in the real-world the 530d diesel feels just as quick and is much more economical. Comes with four-wheel drive as standard.
