Seen as the driver’s choice of BMW, here is a car which lives up to its reputation thanks to a wide choice of engines, widely spaced ratios in the six-speed manual gearbox and responsiveness of its handling. The six-cylinder turbo petrols prove an excellent engine option as does the twin-turbo V8 M5. The 520d which has a 2.0-litre diesel unit and brings 181hp is capable of getting 0-62mph in 8.1 seconds which demonstrates the eagerness of the 5 Series.

Running Costs

All the engines on the 5 series offer decent fuel efficiency. The 520d is especially frugal with an average return of 57mpg which is all the more impressive when considering the engine provides 184bhp. CO2 emissions are also very low when taking into account the size of the vehicle, the same model gives off 119g/km of CO2 which provides plenty of peace of mind. If you prefer the hybrid you will get speed but with slightly less efficiency, with the ActiveHybrid returning 44.1mpg. The top of the range service pack from BMW provides five years or 50,000 miles of maintenance, which is another incentive along with the 5 Series strong residuals.

Equipment

The 5 Series comes with satellite navigation, xenon headlights, climate control, steering wheel-mounted controls for the stereo, cruise control, and a CD player as standard. There is also front fog lights, front and rear parking sensors, rain-sensitive wipers and leather upholstery. The 530d will cost more but adds metallic paint as standard while the 550i gets 18-inch wheels, four-zone climate control and an eight speed automatic gearbox. There are also plenty of optional extras to bring your 5 Series up to your personal specification. For full details, order a brochure through this website.
