Used Bmw 5 Series
About the used BMW 5 Series
Designed with luxury in mind, the BMW 5 Series boasts style, class and comes with power to match. With its elegance and driving dynamics, a used BMW 5 Series stands in a class of its own.
A used 5 Series is a mid-executive saloon that’s been perfectly designed to keep the businessmen of the UK happy as they travel up and down the country. Since its birth, it has become the yardstick for the saloon market. It’s the car that every manufacturer aspires to due to its unrivalled shape and design.
What most people think about when they think 5 Series is the M5. Since the first one arrived in the 1980s, everyone wants one. It’s an expensive top-of-the-range fire breather with a vast amount of power and more performance than you could ever imagine.
What you get with a used BMW 5 Series
Cruise control, climate control, traction control; there’s a lot of control with any 5 Series. Whichever model you pick, you’re guaranteed to be up to the neck in gadgets and tech. Whether you chose the M5 which has about a trillion different options for gearbox ratios and power, or you get a basic diesel, the 5 Series will stun you with its technology.
Most of the BMW 5 Series models are designed to be powerful and economical. So even a small-engined 520d will keep you entertained on long journeys. The best diesels come with the 530d and 535d. These beautiful engines are unbelievably torquey and very, very impressive on the open road.
Like any used BMW, quality is of paramount importance. They are well-built cars, so in theory, there shouldn’t be too many problems when you buy one second hand.
How a used BMW 5 Series drives
Putting it simply, a second-hand BMW 5 Series drives brilliantly. It is not a small car by any means, and although some of the models do drive a bit harshly – thanks to the suspension – they are just awe-inspiringly superb.
There’s little body roll, lots of power and plenty of composure through the bends. The M5 takes power to a whole other level with a 500bhp V10, but even the diesels are a hoot to drive. You won’t be disappointed!
An award-winning BMW
No matter the used BMW 5 Series you pick up, you can be sure that you’ll be getting a car that comes with comfort, style and easy driveability. And this is why the 5 Series was named as “Best Car of the Year” at the 2017 What Car? Car of the Year awards.
