The 2018 BMW 5 Series lives up to the expectations set by its forebears. There's an engine for nearly every taste, and the car's handling capabilities are fundamentally sound. Factor in the 5 Series' latest tech and safety features, and you've got a prime pick for a midsize luxury sedan.

A host of innovative features and leading-edge technology
Interior quarters are quiet and comfortable
Generous trunk capacity

Some interior materials are a bit below segment standards
Evolutionary styling doesn't stand out in a crowded class

designer interior,
fun-loving driving dynamics.

Gorgeous styling
Reasonable value
Many permutations available

Cons
Tight rear seat
Infotainment way behind
Rivals are more efficient
