When choosing a new car, it’s easy to overlook the benefits of a three or five-door hatchback. Their cornerstone is practicality, and in the case of the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, packaged into a size that is only 20cm longer, and in the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, only 9cm longer than the equivalent BMW Saloon.

BMW 1 Series 3-door and 5-door Sports Hatch.

The only car in its class with rear-wheel drive, the BMW 1 Series 3-door and 5-door models provide practical family motoring.
At one end of the range there’s outstanding economical efficiency with 78mpg, at the other a car with a turbocharged straight-six engine that will rocket to 62mph in 5.1 seconds. So whatever the priorities, there’s a BMW 1 Series to fit. Inside, both three and five-door models have seats that split 40:60, with a boot of 360 litres that expands to 1,200 litres. Seats up, there’s space for three in the back.
Around the cabin there are plenty of places to store odds and ends with fastening points too. Specify the Through-Loading system as an optional extra and the rear seats split 40:20:40 to maximise flexibility. ISOFIX points on the outer seats provide for the smallest members of the family.

BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo.

Based on the BMW 3 Series Saloon, the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo differs with a longer wheelbase and a raised roof line. This creates plenty of space for up to three rear seat passengers, while the raised seating position gives everyone a great view. The backrest angle of the rear seats can be individually adjusted in a 40:20:40 split with 15 different stages - from the Cargo setting at 8° (which increases the luggage compartment by 33 litres) to the Comfort position at an inclination of 27°. ISOFIX fittings on the outer two seats cater for child seats. 
Behind them the back shelf is split in two - the rear section automatically opens and closes in unison with the opening and closing of the tailgate, all as standard. The boot has a capacity of 560 litres, which expands to 1,600 litres with all the seats folded down, and the parcel shelf stored below the luggage compartment floor. A selection of lashing points, hooks and nets are fitted as standard to secure smaller items.

BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo.

Built on the same platform as the new BMW 7 Series, the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo offers space and luxury that few in its class can match. Add to this an enormous boot and you have a supremely practical, extremely luxurious drivers’ car.
The raised seating position makes the car easier to get in and out of, and provides excellent visibility for occupants – even the smallest, thanks to ISOFIX fittings on the two rear outer seats. The panoramic glass sunroof, fitted as standard, allows a great deal of light into the interior, but if it’s too bright there’s a roller sun blind. 
Behind the 40:20:40 split rear seats (which have 10cm of movement to prioritise either passenger legroom or boot space) there’s a 500 litre boot that expands to 1,700 with the seats folded almost flat. Access to the boot is helped by the way the tailgate opens – either completely, like a hatchback, or just the lower portion, like a saloon.
