10 of the greatest station wagons ever

It’s no secret SUVs of all shapes and sizes have become the go-to vehicles for families, continuing to sell in numbers that makers of large, four-door sedans can only dream about now.

2019 BMW M5 Competition review: track test

Less than 12 months after the launch of the all-new BMW M5 comes a more powerful version called the Competition, only you'll struggle to pick the differences, at least on track. It's also thirty-grand more expensive.

2018 BMW M5 v Mercedes-AMG E63 S comparison

It’s a great Did You Know factoid that AMG wasn’t involved in the first express-spec E-Class. When Mercedes decided five years was long enough for the original (1985) M5 to have had its own way in the mid-range sports sedan arena – longer if you count the M535i – the Stuttgart brand sought the help of close-neighbour Porsche to create a muscled-up, V8-powered version of the W124 sedan...
