First Drive: 2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo Page 2

2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo

It's a puzzle to some shoppers, but the 5-Series Gran Turismo's very specific mission is a mission accomplished. It's utilitarian in the highest sense. And it's unique: only the Mercedes-Benz R-Class and Lincoln MKT approach its second-row seat comfort and neither performs as capably, though both have a third-row seat in exchange. Without tarring the GT by comparison, the old Chevy Malibu Maxx had the same idea, only minus the execution part.

We're giving the 2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo a preliminary rating of 8.2 out of 10 in TheCarConnection.com's rankings of new cars and trucks. We'll revisit those numbers when pricing and safety information are updated, and when we get behind the wheel of the V-8-powered 550i GT later this year. In the meantime, get a more detailed road test, photos, and related news here:

  3. I like that trunk opening feature. Reminds me of having an SUV and you could either open the window portion or the whole back.

  4. This is one unique car! I like the special rear seats arrangement and dual opening options for the cargo trunk. Also has a slick look...

  5. Why does seem to me like the bastard child of a 5-Series and a Chevy Avalanche (complete with "midgate") that had a one-night stand, resulting in a child that one side or another had to raise?
    It's not bad looking, frankly, but that only applies with the trunk CLOSED. Open ... yeeesh.

  9. Still seems pointless next to the wagon AND the X6. Why, why, why? Nevertheless, it's a really good-looking car.
    More interior/detail shots please!

  10. I think this is an utterly useless vehicle considering the 5-series Touring wagon is even more practical and IMO looks a lot better.
