The 5 Series is BMW's second-largest sedan, next to the 7 Series, and the wagon adds even more bulk. The rather large rump reminds me of more traditional wagons from the past, while competitors often try to make their wagons look as un-wagon-like as possible. Sure, the 535i xDrive may be frumpy in some regards, but it has elegant lines and a striking profile.
