Test it! The BMW 5-series GT | drive it
The BMW 5-series Gran Turismo was a real eye-catcher at the Frankfurt
International Motor Show in 2009, and it is still getting looks now.From a
technical standpoint, the luxury hatchback's design has been derived from
BMW's 5- and 7-series, but it still has distinguished looks that catch the
eye. The world had never seen a BMW 5-series like this one. It was the
first BMW model to have side windows without frames. A spacious interior
means that the car is very comfortable, and the back seats can even be
moved as much as 10 centimeters. The hatchback opens in two different ways,
depending on what must go into it. Drive it! took this little diesel, the
530d, out for a spin.

version. However, the engine sound is enhanced by audio speakers as in the
case of M550d, M135i etc. Full first review of facelifted 5-series F07 GT
