BMW 5 Series v Hyundai Genesis : Comparison review

Some might argue this is a pointless test. They’d say there’s not a chance in a fiery underworld that luxury car buyers entranced by the German badges could be swayed by one wearing the Hyundai ‘H’. Yet if it were accepted that unexpected upstarts couldn’t challenge the Germans, then everyone might have ignored a car that in 1989 spooked Audi, BMW and Mercedes with its remarkable build quality and regal levels of refinement...

2013 BMW 520d GT Review

The styling is as awkward as the fact this 5 Series is actually a 7 Series hatchback. The surprise is, it's a good car...

BMW 5 Series Owner Reviews

We bought this baby approximately 2 years ago. It was an impulse buy which my partner thought was a good idea as he has always dreamed about owning a 5 series. At the time I had high doubts about buying a European car with 120,000kms that was 9 years old. But, (touch wood) there was little wrong with her...

2014 BMW 5 20d GT Luxury Line Review

The 5 series GT is a unique car. I've read all the reviews of people not liking the styling but I like it although I admit the standard 5 series is a sleeker sportier looking car. My reason for purchase comes down to having three teenage children all approaching or at 6 ft tall. Try and find other sedans that will fit 5adults...

2005 BMW 545i SPORT Review

When it comes rear-wheel drive mid-sized sport sedans, the BMW 5 series is undoubtedly one of the best in the world.  The top of the line (at the time of release) BMW 545i M Sport can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 5.8seconds. Quite impressive even by today's standards. Powered by a 325hp 4.5L V8, it's fast and surprisingly agile around corners when considering its size and weight...
