This imperious saloon has found favour with high-powered professionals and style-conscious households alike, and one of the main reasons for this is down to the way it looks. A subtly muscular four-door body, smartly contoured bonnet and flanks and a swept back roofline are just three examples of why this car is held in such high esteem.
Inside, travellers are treated to a roomy environment, whether seated in the front or back. You’ll find that head, elbow and legroom are generous, to the extent that five full-size adults can be conveyed with absolute comfort, even during the longest of journeys. There’s also space for a 530-litre boot that features a low load sill and wide aperture, making usability as simple as can be.
The BMW 5 Series has an engine for all types of motorists. For instance, if you require extra potency, a 3.0-litre 340bhp petrol unit should be just the ticket. This six-cylinder engine puts out 450Nm of torque and delivers 0-60mph in roughly 4.5 seconds and a peak speed of 155mph. Providing a good blend of performance and efficiency is a standard-issue 2.0-litre 184bhp petrol unit, which manages 0-60mph in approximately 7.6 seconds and up to 49.6mpg. It also produces CO2 emissions from 127g/km. Optimal fuel-efficiency is offered by a 2.0-litre petrol/plug-in hybrid set-up, which returns as much as 156.9mpg and produces emissions from just 36g/km.
A six-speaker audio system is installed as standard, including DAB radio, which delivers an array of stations in super-clear sound quality. As well as AUX and USB ports, all models feature Bluetooth connectivity, making music streaming from compatible devices as simple as can be. Another standard inclusion is BMW Professional Navigation, offering, among other things, real-time traffic information. You’ll always have the option to upgrade your infotainment package to a 16-speaker Harman Kardon system, complete with 600W amplifier.
Rated a maximum five stars by Euro NCAP, the 5 Series is laden with safety tech. For instance, Park Distance Control uses ultrasonic sensors (located within front and rear bumpers) that will alert you to any unseen obstacles when parking.
