BMW 5 Series Saloon (2016 - )

The executive saloon class is extremely competitive and filled with truly excellent cars from all the premium players. Even with that caveat the BMW 5 Series is an exceptional piece of kit and a masterclass in style, technology, luxury, handling and comfort. While it may stick to a traditional format and look there’s nothing old-fashioned about the way it cossets its occupants and takes the stress out of even the most hectic schedule

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The 5 Series stacks up pretty evenly with key rivals like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6 and Jaguar XF when it comes to purchase price. Depending on the version you buy, the BMW could likely have the edge on fuel (the popular 520d is particularly impressive), but where the 5 Series shines is on its predicted resale value, which is considerably ahead of the other three. That should make it a really solid financial investment, and its relatively low CO2 emissions should make it popular among company car taxpayers too.
