BMW 5 Series Overview
No matter your tastes, the 5 Series has 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. For the frugal-minded, hybrid and diesel models are available; Autobahn-stormers can opt for the top-level M5 and its 560-hp 4.4-liter turbo V8. The ride is elegant and composed, but the car's vague steering and pronounced understeer at its limits take it down a peg in the fun-to-drive quotient. Interior fit and finish is excellent, but some controls are overcomplicated. Reliability of most versions has been average or better.
