Look, I know cars. I have driven many many cars and trucks of all kinds. I have anSL500 in the garage which I thought was pretty much the perfect driving machine.Hah, !!! Short version is that if you want to arrive and be seen buy a Mercedes, if youactually care about the driving experience, and the trip is more important than thearrival, do yourself a favor and get the BMW!. I now understand why its the ultimatedriving machine, thats not an ad campaign, its the After thiswears out there is nowhere to go except into a newer BMW. If you have the means Ihighly recommend it….
INTERIOR’SThe 5s interior space has grown slightly, while the overall impression has grownalmost exponentially. Already a strong suit, BMW paid special attention toergonomics in the new 5 Series, with all displays, knobs and buttons located inthe central portion of the cabin. And the choice of interior materials reflects anew maturity on the part of BMW management; this, of course, is whereconsumers spend most of their time, and the new upgrades are fully appropriateto that. Wed take issue, however, with the standard-spec upholstery; black orbeige leatherette, on a car with a base price of over $45K, stretches – we think –credibility.DRIVING EXPERIENCE Driving ImpressionsRegardless of drivetrain, the 2012 BMW 5 Series family provides a balanced approach to over- the-road performance. And when equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD), BMWs midsize sedan is blessed with "all- road"...
YOU WILL…Youll Like This Car If...If you desire a balanced approach toperformance, comfort and practicality – and want all three in a reasonably sizedsedan – few cars can match the menu provided by BMWs 5 Series. Andif, perchance, youre one of the few capable of coordinating your left foot withyour right hand, BMW is one of the very few automakers providing the abovewith a manual transmission – in the 535i and 550i. YOU WILL NOT….(awww…!!)You May Not Like This Car If...With the advent of sporty crossovers, andthe growing popularity of sport coupes, the sport sedan is at aninteresting point in the automotive paradigm. The 5 Series remainspractical and sporting, but its practicality is limited by its architecture,and its "sportiness" is limited by its 3-box profile. Also, its sensiblestarting point – mid-$40Ks – can quickly become nonsensical with theaddition of but a few options.
RECCOMENDATIONS: To focus on long-term strategy objectives rather than push aparticular model or series: To avoid a future sales dip in a trend/fashion-driven sales cycle. This involves achieving aspirational mindshare among the elusive youngdriver segment, even if only in market short-term for a luxury car. To avoid alienating or offending older luxury customers while engaged inthis campaign to aggresively pursue the youth target market. To reinforce BMW’s prestige/performance brand cache in the context of aproduct line that is rapidly expanding. To expand & develop the marketing competencies necessary. to competeeffectively against players with bigger marketing budgets.
