BMW 5 SERIES Car Review
My favourite big executive car
The BMW 5 Series has been Car magazine's favourite big executive car for the last decade, and deservedly so.
In a nutshell it does everything a bit better than all of its rivals, especially when it comes to how good it is to drive. The BMW 5 really live up to BMW’s ’Ultimate Driving machine’ slogan. Whether you are on long motorway drives or driving fast on twisty A roads, it’s a pleasure to be behind the wheel.
You also get a cosseting cabin, high on quality fit and finish with all the executive gadgets and luxuries you would expect, and plenty of space for five and their luggage.
Like every model in the BMW range there really is a version to suit every taste and budget, if anything there is too much choice. But for me the stand out is the BMW 520d, for the ideal package of performance and economy - just over 60 mpg from a big family car is excellent.And it’s a diesel that is so refined and smooth you’ll frequently think you are in a petrol.
* Great all round performer * Excellent diesel engine * Good fuel economy * Expert road handling *
