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 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.
