Autocar was impressed with the F10 M5 (no surprise there) and it shows in their review. We particularly like their verdict that the new M5 is a landmark car in many respects. Read on for the crucials details.
The first drive reviews of the F10 M5 have begun rolling in. Insideline has just posted their first impressions of BMW’s newest M5. Their verdict? They call the F10 M5 a better overall sport sedan compared to the E60.
The more interesting comments are posted inside, but head over to Insideline for the full review.
It’s always a fun exercise to compare a just announced BMW model against its predecessor. It puts into perspective how much technology, engineering, and design has progressed in the 6-7 years since the last model. Here, we compare the F10 M5 (full official info) against the E60 M5 in the styling and performance departments.
We’ve stacked the F10 M5 up against the E63 AMG and CTS-V, but there are other cars in the segment which warrant further comparison, namely the Porsche Panamera Turbo/S and the Jaguar XF-R.
This comparison covers cars from a wide range of prices – from $80,000 to $173,000, but on paper the performance specs and owner demographics are close enough to compare. Again, the real tests will come from test drives, reviews, and direct comparos of the M5 against its rivals.
