BMW has been selling the 5-Series line since the start of the 1970s and brought the model in to replace the New Class model.
It's a mid-size executive car with a wide range of trims to help it appeal to different buyers in different regions around the world.
Smaller engine variants with fewer features help the car appeal to lower-end buyers whereas the long-established M5 trim puts a tremendous amount of power under the hood with modern safety and comfort features inside.
Bigger than the German automobile manufacturer's flagship 3-Series range this one appeals to those who want a bit more luxury and space inside.
Sals continue to rise for the 5-Series hitting new records almost every year with almost 250,000 units sold per year in the recent decade.
As the middle-class grows in China the demand will continue to grow as BMW has managed to maintain their brand through quality workmanship across 2 centuries.
A series of special editions also help sales including the GT and plug-in hybrid versions that appeal to buyers that may not have bought the 5-Series before.
M5 trims of the BMW sell for a much higher price but contain features and an engine that allow it to outperform some sports cars at double the price on the market.
