A 5 is a great mix is style luxury and performance, all tied into one package. No car is the best at everything, everything will have a downside. A 5 has a good mix. Its an excellent cruiser, but it has handling and power, for when you need it
So what is the purpose of the 5 series? It is not exceptional at anything. Yes, I know it has a good mix of everything... but so does an Audi A4 or a BMW 330i. What does a 5 series do that either an A4 or 330i can't do?
