The 5-Series Saloon has managed to beat off important competitors like Audi or Jaguar. The BMW was followed by the new A8 that took 14% of the votes and by the Jaguar KJ in the third place which won 11% of the votes. Considering this survey, strong residuals, solid performance and minimised emissions, the BMW 5-Series is expected to be a volume seller in the United Kingdom. The 5-Series has a range of diesels and petrols to choose from, is very spacious and can be used from long business trips to family duties.
Explains Richard Lawton, the website’s spokesperson: “The new 5-Series will be the first in its class to gain Auto Start/Stop and will benefit from a host of BMW’s EfficientDynamic technologies. In addition to that the new 5-Series is slightly larger than its predecessor yet it maintains strong performance and boosts fuel efficiency over the old model.
“With great driver aids including the introduction of Park Assist, along with Head-up Display, Night Vision, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Warning, Speed Limit Info and two rear entertainment packages available, the 5 Series is equipped to go too.
“We expect that by the time it launches in late March, the new 5-Series will become one the most popular for cars on the ContractHireAndLeasing.com website” he adds.
