BMW 5 SERIES SPORTS WAGON

Wagon, over $23,000

BMW 5 Series Sports Wagon

A first-time winner of Vincentric’s Best Value in America™, the BMW 5-Series showed consistent value in our measurements, regardless of whether annual mileage was on the low end or hitting the 20,000 mile per year mark. With cost-of-ownership that was over 6% lower than expected, it held off another BMW wagon with Excellent Value…the BMW 3-Series which ended up a close second.
