2014 BMW 5-Series Touring Review

You can adjust the backrest angle and height of the seat, with an electric controller, though you have slide to forth and back manually. Dashboard is well designed. Functions available can be viewed on a widescreen monitor located in the center, though you find it a bit tricky initially, but it will be quite easier to operate, once you will get familiar to it.
There is enough room inside but, 5 people cannot sit with sheer comfort, because there is a transmission sap run through the center of the car. It has 560 liters of boot space, which can be expanded by folding the seats, the self levering suspension also assist in carrying heavier loads swiftly.
Music player, wheel mounted controls, climate control, cruise control and four electric windows are the standard features. Features are endless almost; some of them are head-up display, adaptive drive, active steering etc.
All the engines are highly powered, if you look at the petrol version, then you can get three 3.0 liter units, which are highly powerful and efficient performers on roads. In the diesel engine you will get 2.0 liter 181bhp at starting, for more power you can pick from 525d, 530d and 535d, all these diesel engines perform exceedingly well on roads.
Standard suspension is no way near the good, but you can get it better by opting Variable Damper Control to 4-cylinder models and Adaptive drive to 6-cylinder models, though you have to spent more for these features, but they are quite essential, for a smooth ride all in all.
In 520d you can get suffered a bit by engine noise, and wind noise through door mirrors, they should get refined for the better performance of the car.
This car is expensive to buy, but it is extremely desirable, therefore its resale value is equally tempting. The 520d engine gives the average of 55.4mpg and very less CO2 emission. Cabin is designed, giving class the uttermost significance; this is why the interior is exquisite and astonishing. It comes with stability control and 6 airbags. You will also get alarm, wheel-nuts locking and deadlocks, to make your cart completely secured from theft.
