New BMW 5 Series

The 5 Series is evidently built to last, with it still being one of BMW’s most popular go-to models. 5 years after its release it stands strong amongst many of its competitors, being supremely well-built and having fantastic dynamics.

Appearance

The sloping roofline and creases lining the 5 Series are classic touches seen in the previous version, and accentuate the saloon’s bulky dimensions in an imposing, dominant way. The M Sport 5 Series has an even more aggressive looking bodykit, with a chrome grille sitting at the nose and chrome finish on the exhaust pipes. The 5 Series interior is very spacious, with ample leg and headroom for all passengers, as well as storage in the form of door bins and a cubby hole located between the front seats, as well as the huge 520-litre boot. All materials and panels are high-quality, with leather seats and a sweeping dash that houses the signature iDrive screen, operated with multiple steering wheel-mounted controls.

Performance

The manual gearbox is actually one of the strongest features of the 5 series, with an exceedingly smooth transmission that actually makes the driving experience more engaging. The weighted steering provides a nice level of feedback, and as a result, the 5 series has extraordinary handling, especially in spite of its bulky stance. Optional adaptive drive is available on certain models, as well as variable damper control, which makes the ride even more supple. Engine-wise, all of the options impress, with the petrol engines having as keen an acceleration as you would expect, and the diesels offering plenty of power and in some cases, a fuel economy far better than this class of vehicle should be able to achieve. The 520d will hit 0-62 in just under eight seconds, whilst reaching just over 60mpg. For the more specialised owners, there are also a choice of V8 engines, and a single hybrid to choose from. Being such a high-end model in the range, the 5 Series comes with plenty of kit as standard, such as sat-nav, xenon headlights, cruise control, parking sensors, bluetooth and climate control. Additional options, such as a high-tech, windscreen mounted display and lane departure can be added for a premium.

Safety & Economy

Safety features, as you would expect, are well taken care of, with six airbags and stability control, with the choice to add a night-vision package. Professionals and company owners alike can benefit from the low road tax and fantastic fuel economy on hand.

Conclusion

Perfect for Families and Executives The 5 Series is meticulously crafted to offer a balance of style, performance, and luxury, whilst the level of comfort makes this car suitable for both the business-minded and the focused family man.
