If you desire a balanced approach to performance, comfort and practicality – and want all three in a reasonably sized sedan – few cars can match the menu provided by BMW's 5 Series. And if
With the advent of sporty crossovers, and the growing popularity of sport coupes, the sport sedan is at an interesting point in the automotive paradigm. The 5 Series remains practical and sporting, bu
Regardless of drivetrain, the 2012 BMW 5 Series family provides a balanced approach to over-the-road performance. And when equipped with all-wheel drive, BMW's mid-size sedan and Gran Turismo are blessed with "all-road" performance, going tough when the going gets tough. With your choice of a turbocharged four, in-line six or V8, you can truly tailor a BMW 5 Series to your performance requirements and, of course, budget.

The best feature is just how perfect it balances luxury and sportiness."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 49,000overall rating 5 of 10rating details
Pros: "I believe the safety features are good."
Cons: "Run flat, front bumper too fragile"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7
"I almost hit someone in the REAR because I gently hit gas pedal and nothing happens. I press a little harder and the car takes off like a rocket. I am willing to bet that some day I will hit someone in the rear. Fo this reason, I would not recommend this car. By the way, I owned one (5 series) for 14 years and this was the reason I did not buy lexus. I wanted to stick with the evil I know. Hopefully, this wont be a little too much evillag, lag, lag"
