For those executives seeking more practicality than the saloon can offer, the BMW 5 Series Touring (or estate in everyday speak) is BMW’s answer. It takes on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class estate and the Audi A6 Avant, and each of these estates aren’t simply a bigger, boxy version of the saloons they are based on.

Running costs

BMW 5 Series Touring running costs are excellent if you choose the right version - the 520d offers the best running costs thanks to its low emissions of 135g/km CO2 (for the six-speed manual) and claimed average of 55.4mpg. This is also thanks to BMW’s simple but effective Efficient Dynamics that includes stop/start, optimum gear shift indicator and electric power steering.

It all adds up to make the 5-Series Touring extremely competitive against its rivals.
