The 2012 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 offers no significant fuel economy or acceleration benefit versus a 535i and costs significantly more. You'd be better off gluing a "Hybrid" badge onto a regular 5 Series.

- Clean interior design with high-quality materials
- Ample standard feature content
- Excellent front seats.
- No significant fuel economy or acceleration benefit versus cheaper 535i
