Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The BMW M5 Competition may be capable of out-accelerating supercars, but that doesn’t mean BMW has compromised on practicality.

Here, the only real difference from a standard 5 Series is the wider front sports seats. They give the driver and passenger more lateral support yet still offer ample head and leg room for six-footers.

If you’re looking for the most practical super saloon, we’d recommend taking a look at the Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate – it has more head and leg room and feels quite a bit airier thanks to its tall side windows. 

As for the boot, both the Competition and CS have enough space for a couple of large suitcases and some smaller bags. Rather than being a simple square shape, the load bay is full of contours that can be restrictive when trying to load large, bulky objects. The E63 Estate’s boot is larger, and can fit a whopping 10 cases below the tonneau cover.
