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.
