LCI BMW 5 Series GT Review by auto motor und sport

Alongside the revised 5 Series Sedan, BMW also took a long look at the 5 Series GT and decided there was room for improvement. The guys from auto motor und sport were quick to book a test drive of the new car and are now sharing their thoughts on it.

Unlike the Sedan, where little has changed, the GT is now sporting a different look, especially at the back. In the daring try to satisfy everyone out there, BMW listened to some of its critics and reshaped the tailgate. Now the car is closer to the 3 Series GT in looks and it's better this way.

The car they had was the 535i model with the famous N55 engine under the bonnet and its 306 HP. The power delivery is smooth and continuous, as you'd expect, especially when hooked up to the 8-speed automatic gearbox.

A lot of work went into the chassis too and the car is a bit more agile and has less roll in the corners, especially if you get the adaptive dampers. However, this is not a racing car so it will have some body roll in tight curves (just look at the size of the thing).No matter what though, the GT remains the most agile and dynamic car in its class.

That's not the point of this car though. This car is comfortable cruiser for you and your family to enjoy good music in (thanks to the Bang und Olufsen audio system) whilst in a holiday. And at that my friends, nothing is better that the 5 Series GT.
