However, BMW thinks, that Turismo is appropriate for this, its large, car/crossover thingy. we first heard of the 5 Series GT, we a little skeptical. Here was yet vehicle in search of a market, one tries to make a connection to the GTs of old, but doesn’t quite fit the

But then we got to actually see it and drive it.


BMW 5-Series

In all honesty, it seems a little baffling at first, why BMW to call this car the 5 Series Turismo, because it’s got in common with the just 7-Series than the 5. It’s on the 7 Series chassis (albeit one three inches shorter). It the same 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and ZF transmission. It also adopts the 7’s suspension arrangement as well as an active steering system.

In the back however, is where the Turismo stands apart just about every car currently on the market. The standard row seating, consists of a three-place with rake adjustment as as fore and aft; much the front chairs on most passenger vehicles.
