Build quality and materials inside the 5 Series are still outstanding
Edmunds

Seating in either the sedan or Sports Wagon is commendable. The front seats in the 2010 BMW 5-Series are among the best in any mid-size luxury sedan. They're very firm and supportive yet comfortable; in back, they're also quite cozy, but there's a bit less space than most cars this size. The front seats are among the best in any luxury vehicle in this price range.

The Washington Post describes the 2010 BMW 5-Series wagon as "plush, the motorized equivalent of an exclusive condominium...prestigious." According to Autoblog, this BMW 2010 offers "10-way power front seats standard in all models" and "supportive seating is provided in both the front and rear," adding that "even adults won't mind sitting in the commodious backseat." Kelley Blue Book reports that the 2010 BMW 5-Series 10-way adjustable seats (20-way adjustment is an option) are "the most comfortable and supportive in the class," whether one is traveling on the open freeway or curving back roads.

The Auto Channel attests that the 5-Series 2010 BMW wagon has "all the positives of the 5-Series sedans with the added advantage of a cargo area that can carry all the family's presents to Grandma's house for Christmas." Edmunds points out the 5-Series sedan "has 14 cubic feet of trunk capacity."

There's little to complain about when it comes to the quality and finish 2010 BMW 5-Series' cabin. "Build quality and materials inside the 5 Series are still outstanding," Edmunds says. Anachronistically, the 5-Series' standard upholstery is vinyl, Automedia observes, probably a nod to its civil-service duties as a fleet machine in Germany.

Conclusion

Not everyone is happy about the layout of the 2010 BMW 5-Series interior, but it scores high for its almost absolute comfort and quiet.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
