The new BMW 5 Series Touring is the German brand’s latest estate car.

The saloon version was named ‘Car of the Year’ by our colleagues on What Car?, and we’ve been keen to get behind the wheel ever since.

With a list price of more than £52,000, this is an expensive car.

It’ll need to be multi-talented to justify its cost.
