No test of this segment would be complete without a BMW 5-series.

Redone for 2017, the seventh-gen 5-series now goes by the internal code G30 and, in 540i guise, features the latest BMW inline-six, the 335-hp single-turbo B58. The 540i’s starting price is the lowest of the group at $57,445, but piling on the packages and individual options inflates the price to an as-tested $82,610. As with the Mercedes, it’s fairly easy to bring down the Bimmer’s sticker by skipping extras such as the $4200 Bowers & Wilkins audio system, $750 remote-control parking, $650 ceramic controls, and $600 soft-close doors. And we’d happily save the $190 it costs to make it possible to wave your hand at the instrument panel to adjust the volume.
