surprising to find such features as auto soft-close doors and power headrests as standard equipment
Autoblog

A look at the 5-Series GT's spec sheet reveals a long list of standard features and some no-brainer options.

MSN Autos reports standard equipment on the new BMW GT includes leather upholstery, the split-folding rear seat, 10-way power front seats, an AM/FM/CD stereo, a panoramic sunroof, adaptive headlights, and 18-inch alloy wheels on run-flat tires. Autoblog says it's "surprising to find such features as auto soft-close doors and power headrests as standard equipment."

A navigation system is offered, as are a music hard drive and satellite radio. A rear-seat entertainment system with twin LCD screens is an option, as is a luxury rear-seat package with massaging functions built in; there's also heating and ventilation. Other options include a premium audio package with USB connectivity; soft-closing doors and a power liftgate; and a cold-weather package. Satellite radio will be offered, along with integration kits for smartphones like the iPhone to control audio and phone functions via the GT's iDrive controller and voice-activation interface.

Among the 5-Series GT's new features is a revamped iDrive system, which TheCarConnection.com's editors experienced in the 2009 BMW 7-Series. It's improved and far easier to navigate, and redundant buttons make the cabin more pleasant to operate. Edmunds says "it's really good, especially with the optional 10.2-inch screen." MSN Autos agrees it "has become easier to use, incorporating several buttons around the main rotating controller to access various functions quickly." They also report "a USB port in the glove box allows for loading drive routes and the like."

Conclusion

With a big sunroof, entertainment galore, and leather and wood trim, the 2010 5-Series Gran Turismo won't disappoint many BMW shoppers.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
