Spacious, practical, desirable, dynamic; all words we’d use to describe the BMW 5 Series Touring. But cheap? Surely not. Well when you take into account the cost of depreciation, the BMW has plenty going for it, because the 520d Touring will maintain its value more effectively than any of its executive car rivals.
Its slow depreciation is easy to understand once you’ve spent some quality time with the big 5 Series, as its combination of sportscar pace, hot-hatch handling and top-notch car-park kudos make it a car with huge talents and broad appeal. With a 560-litre boot this could be the ultimate family holdall and SE trim include items such as Bluetooth connectivity, rear parking sensors and climate control, so you won’t even have to resort to the vast options list.
For such a big and powerful car (181bhp) the 520d Touring promises claimed economy of 57.6mpg and an official CO2 output only 134g/km. If you want to family car running costs in an executive car package, look no further.
