With a history stretching all the way back to 1972, the BMW 5 Series has a rich heritage and is one of the manufacturer's flagship models, accounting for as much as 50 percent of the company's profits in recent years. Available both as a saloon and a tourer, this model has consistently impressed over the decades thanks to its combination of elegant driving dynamics, interior comfort and raw power.
Now in its sixth generation, the latest 5 Series boasts numerous tweaks and upgrades to performance, as well as some of the most sophisticated driving technology yet seen in a road car.
The interior of the 5 Series represents the purity of the driving experience. With elegant upholstery and ergonomically-placed instruments, nothing gets in between the driver and control of the vehicle. However, it would be a mistake to assume that no assistance is provided – far from it. The BMW ConnectedDrive system, for example, allows integration with various services and apps, while the iDrive Touch Controller provides easy control of navigation and other systems with one hand, leaving you free to enjoy the ride.
The exterior of the 5 Series exudes confidence and quiet authority, thanks to its refined grille and elegant side lines. A protruding front end hints at the power contained within, while L-shaped lights at the rear offer a pleasing visual effect. Optional LED headlights also help to increase visibility.
In terms of performance, the 5 Series goes above and beyond what is required, with a truly impressive engine range. Offering up to 459bhp, the petrol range is one of the most powerful BMW has to offer, while diesel variants provide significant fuel savings with consumption of up to 60.1mpg combined.
