Used Car: 2010 BMW 5-Series Wagon Review

Review Last Updated: 4/12/13

The 2010 BMW 5-Series Sports Wagon has a low safety and reliability score for the class, which makes the 5-Series wagon rank low among its competitors.

The 2010 BMW 5-Series Wagon is ranked:

The all-wheel drive 2010 BMW 5-Series Sports Wagon has a standard turbocharged six-cylinder engine mated to a manual transmission. An automatic transmission is also available. Test drivers liked the peppy turbocharged engine and smooth-shifting manual transmission. The 5-Series Sports Wagon with the manual gets 16/23 mpg city/highway, while the automatic gets 16/24 mpg, which is low for the class. Test drivers said the steering is very responsive.

Test drivers liked the leatherette upholstery and other high-quality materials in the 2010 BMW 5-Series Sports Wagon. Some reviewers said the back seat is comfortable enough for three adults. The BMW 5-Series Sports Wagon has 58.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the second row folded, and 17 cubic feet with the second row in use. Standard features for the 5-Series Wagon include a panoramic sunroof, power tailgate, 10-speaker stereo system, leatherette upholstery, multi-media interface and automatic windshield wipers. Available equipment includes a lane departure warning system, front and rear park assist, heated front and rear seating, a heated steering wheel, navigation and satellite radio. Many test drivers were displeased with the BMW’s complex multi-media system. 

The 5-Series Sports Wagon has a low safety score and low reliability score for the class.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2010 Audi A6 Avant is a great choice for those who want a stellar safety score and high reliability score. Test drivers liked the responsiveness of the transmission and powerful six-cylinder engine.

Another good choice is the 2010 Volvo XC70 because of its available safety features. The cargo space behind the second row is comparable to the 5-Series Sports Wagon’s.
