Why Lease A BMW 5 Series?
How Does Leasing With Vanarama Work?Leasing a BMW means you’ll have access to a brand-new car for a fixed monthly cost. Fixed monthly payments will continue for the agreed length of your contract. Often lease deals will last between 2 to 5 years, but you can choose a contract length to suit you.You can choose your annual mileage and decide how much you’d like to pay at the start of the contract. The cost of car maintenance and servicing can also be included in your lease deal as an optional extra. Once your lease deal ends, you simply return the car.If you choose a BMW 5 Series business lease, you can reclaim 100% of the VAT on your lease deal, providing your company is eligible.To find out more about how contract hire works, take a look at our easy-to-understand guide to car leasing.
BMW 5 Series Interior
BMW 5 Series Driving Experience
Depending on how practical you need your 5 Series to be, you can choose to lease either the 5-door Saloon or 5-door Touring estate. The latter is ideal for those who need a lot of space, but the saloon will take a couple of big suitcases in the boot with ease, while remaining slightly more refined at speed than the estate.
Even the entry-level petrol-engined version (the 520i) returns a respectable 44mpg fuel economy, while the 520d diesel can easily exceed 50mpg with gentle driving. For the very lowest running costs, however, you’ll want the 530e plug-in hybrid. An electric motor and battery give it the ability to cover more than 30 miles without using any fuel at all – although keep in mind you will need to have a charging wallbox installed at home in order to reap the full benefit of this.
BMW 5 Series Models Available To Lease
BMW 5 Series SaloonThis is the classic 5 Series body shape – a sharp and sporty-looking 4-door saloon that offers plenty of interior space, a reasonably large boot and the desirable BMW image, all in one package.
BMW 5 Series TouringEstates aren’t as popular as SUVs, but looking at the 5 Series Touring will make you wonder why – this model offers a huge boot and loads of room for occupants, while retaining the classy looks and excellent handling of the 4-door model.
High-Performance ModelsEnthusiasts know that any BMW with the letter ‘M’ in front of its name is something special, and the M5 high-performance model has been around almost as long as the regular 5 Series. It's of course more expensive to lease and can be expensive to run, but it's explosively fast and offers unrivalled performance. The petrol M550i and diesel M550d are slightly more sober choices, but still extremely quick.
5 Series Trim Levels
The BMW 5 Series vs Competitors
BMW in general, and the 5 Series specifically, has tended towards the middle and sometimes the bottom half of respected industry customer satisfaction surveys, so reliability is pretty good if not class-leading.
It varies. The saloon can hold 530 litres, dropping to 410 litres if you choose the plug-in hybrid model. With all seats in place, the Touring estate manages 560 litres, again with a reduction to 430 litres in the case of the plug-in.
If you’re looking to lease a BMW 5 Series, you’ll be picking between SE, M Sport and M Sport Edition trim levels with the standard petrol, diesel and hybrid engines, while the range is topped off by the high-performance M550i, M550d and M5 versions.
Yes, every 5 Series from the base SE model up comes with BMW’s Parking Assistant parking sensors.
The 4-door 5 Series has the same practicality limitations as any saloon car, in that its boot opening is tight, so it can’t take very big boxes or awkwardly shaped items on board. The 5-door Touring estate solves these issues, however, offering a similar amount of luggage space to many medium-sized SUVs.
People are always keen to get a good lease deal on a 5 Series as it offers so much car for your money. It offers fantastic handling, and your passengers will marvel at the comfort and interior technology.
