A steady stream of improvements and innovations, plus an admirable blend of comfort, craftsmanship and performance, has set this midsize BMW apart from the middle-of-the-road cars. The 2013 BMW 5 Series proudly carries on this tradition, although its core message of performance has been obscured by luxury.

If the 5 Series Gran Turismo’s sport sedan/SUV cross-pollination seems like a neat idea, this BMW will no doubt work out well for you. We’re just not sure who asked for it.

The 2012 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 offers no significant fuel economy or acceleration benefit versus a 535i and costs significantly more. You’d be better off gluing a “Hybrid” badge onto a regular 5 Series.
