No matter your tastes, the 5 Series offers an engine to satisfy your appetite. In our tests, the turbo six-cylinder in the 535i delivered strong, smooth acceleration, and the eight-speed automatic shifted imperceptibly. At 23 mpg overall, fuel economy is commendable for such a quick and substantial sedan. Frugal-minded buyers can get a hybrid or diesel model; autobahn-stormers can opt for the M5 and its 560-hp 4.4-liter turbo V8. The ride is elegant and composed. But while handling is taut, the car's vague steering hurts its fun-to-drive quotient. Interior fit and finish is excellent, but the controls take some getting used to and rear-seat room isn't very generous. A redesigned 5 Series goes on sale in February 2017 with pricing starting in the low $50,000.
