What's the used BMW 5 Series saloon like?
The BMW 5 Series is, in a word, brilliant. It outshone every rival during its lifetime and continues to do better than many of today's more up-to-date options.
Whether you're looking to cruise from Cornwall to Caithness or blast down some country lanes, the 5 Series delivers a really stunning drive. Great weight distribution and well-weighted steering mean it's great to be behind the wheel.
The 5 Series is smooth and quiet. It's generally very comfortable, too, although larger passengers might find it a bit of a squeeze in the back.
There's no such complaint with the boot, however, which is easily big enough to swallow a good few sets of golf clubs or a family's luggage for a week away.
Equipment levels are better than you might think, and the car has a strong safety record, too, with a creditable four-star rating in Euro NCAP crash tests.
