The M5 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. These give the driver and passenger more lateral support yet in no way impede taller people from finding enough head and leg room.
In the back, there’s room for two tall adults, but carrying a third person isn’t a comfortable experience on long journeys; shoulder room is tight and whoever is sitting in the middle has to straddle a hump in the floor.
As for the boot, there’s enough space for a couple of large suitcases and some smaller bags. However, rather than being a simple, square shape, the loadbay is full of various contours that can be restrictive when trying to load large, bulky objects. The Mercedes-AMG E63’s boot is that bit larger, too.
