The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo hatch-wagon may puzzle some shoppers, but it knows how to entertain on the road and doesn't mind if you bring company. If you seek a supremely comfortable people hauler but eschew traditional station wagons, minivans, and SUVs, the 2008 Mercedes-Benz R-Class may be for you.
