TCC’s Bottom Line
Whether as a sedan or wagon, the 2010 BMW 5-Series is a distinctly sportier, tech-savvy alternative to luxury rivals-without giving up any comfort. The 2010 Infiniti M sedans reward drivers with Germanic handling and acceleration, though it's hard to pick them out from a crowd. The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan swings to the masculine side of the pendulum and sharpens its driving appeal in the process.
