This isn't your average BMW 5 Series review. We've taken a brand new BMW 530d and decided to pitch it against its toughest rival in the executive car class - the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Which is the best to drive? Which has the best infotainment and connectivity? Which is the most comfortable?

And, less objectively, which, er, does the best drifts when you turn off the stability control?

Matt Prior and Mauro Calo are your judges, as we test the two best executive cars head-to-head.

Excellent video

This video was a real treat to watch, so much better than Top Gear.

They touched on something

They touched on something which has always concerned me and that is the distraction that these new 'infotainment' systems offer. Just another thing that some people will prioritise over the task of actually driving.

welcome Mauro!

Delighted Mauro has finally been allowed out of the shadows, better chemistry here than on TG.
