The 2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo is a unique vehicle with few clear competitors.
Chief among them is BMW's own X6 crossover, which rides higher and has a more athletic and, conversely, a more rugged stance.
The MKT is a seven-seater, but like the BMW GT, it offers a stellar level of second-row comfort and adds a third-row seat and supercharged V-6 performance to its compelling style.
The Audi A6 Avant is one of the more, well, avant-garde wagons on the market, with a sleeker silhouette than the norm, a standard bench for its second-row of seats, and options for all-wheel drive and V-8 power.
The Gran Turismo's most direct rival might be the slow-selling Mercedes-Benz R-Class, based on second-row comfort, but the R-Class offers a third-row seat that stretches its proportions to ungainly lengths.
