Styling

The 2009 BMW 5-Series features styling that may not appeal to everyone, but it's still elegant.

Edmunds calls the 5er a "wolf", just one that wears "flamboyant sheep's clothing."Car and Driver finds the look "somewhat controversial,"while Cars.com says the dramatic look "blends fairly well"into traffic.

Reviewers are ambivalent about the 2009 BMW 5-Series sedan's styling, but the wagon's elongated silhouette is widely appreciated.

Motor Trend punts on the interior, and says it's "dark and cold."Kelley Blue Book comments on "the overall air of firm luxury,"but Edmunds says the 5er's rivals have "more stylish and less austere environments."Automobile feels the interior is "handsome,"if not "as elegantly turned out"as that in vehicles like the Mercedes E-Class.
