The best executive saloon on the market in 2010. Refined and high quality interior. Great to drive with a forgiving ride. Remarkably efficient 520d. Five-star NCAP crash rating.

Steering doesn't have the feel or weight you'd expect from a BMW. N47 2.0 diesel engines could still have timing chain problems up to 2011.
