What Car? Personal Shopper: BMW 5 Series Touring

Our choice: buy used

This was a hard choice, because both our new and used options would be perfect for Lucy – no matter where her job might take her. Ultimately, though, for the best all-round experience of space, comfort, performance and economy, the win has to go to the stunning BMW 5 Series Touring.

That's not to dim the light on Skoda's Superb Estate at all, mind. It's still an excellent car which won't cost you a lot to run, but it can't match the 5 Series for interior quality. Lucy can rest assured that the 5 Series Touring is all the car she's ever likely to need.

Our advice this time, then, is to buy used.
