BMW 520d M Sport

From a global perspective, the BMW 5 Series is a pivotal car for the Bavarian-based brand, not only in terms of volumes but profitability. After the 7 Series won the First Class category in 2016/17, we predicted the 5 would be just as good and, based on its pricing and specification, it is clearly a frontrunner in the Executive Sedan class.
