The BMW 5 Series wagon is no more, but look what you get in its place: a hatchback sedan with more passenger room and enough cargo space to match some crossovers. Although it’s part of the midsize 5 Series, the Gran Turismo offers the same rear legroom as the full-size 7 Series sedan and just as much headroom as the X5 crossover.

What's New for 2014

The 2014 Gran Turismo receives freshened front and rear fascias with restyled lights and bumpers. Inside, the center console gets larger storage compartments and cupholders, and the iDrive control system adds a touchpad. Navigation is now standard on all models.

Choosing Your BMW 535i Gran Turismo

The sole powertrain is a turbocharged 3-liter V6 with 300 horsepower, matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The rear-drive Gran Turismo can hit 60 mph in about 6 seconds while delivering 20 mpg in town and 28 mpg on the highway. Opting for all-wheel drive reduces mileage by 1–2 mpg.

Its unique body gives the Gran Turismo more rear legroom and headroom than the standard 5 Series sedan. The liftgate features a trunk lid that can open independently of the glass portion. Cargo space tops out at 60 cubic feet with the rear seat folded, about what you would get in compact crossover.

All models are lavishly equipped with leather seating and door trim, dark wood interior accents, parking sensors front and rear, a driver memory system and a panoramic sunroof. Buyers seeking more distinction can select from three optional trims:

  • Luxury: Adds a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, exclusive seat stitching, a choice of 19- or 20-inch multispoke wheels, LED foglamps and a choice of anthracite or dark wood trim.
  • Modern: Includes the sport steering wheel and LED foglamps, as above, plus 19- or 20-inch turbine-style wheels and specific seat stitching.
  • M Sport: Equips the Gran Turismo with an aerodynamic body kit, 19-inch V-spoke wheels, an M Sport steering wheel, an anthracite headliner, an increased top speed limiter and black exterior trim in place of chrome.

Individual options abound on all trim levels, but most can be grouped into packages such as:

  • Dynamic Handling: Adds more aggressive suspension and steering systems.
  • Premium: Gives you automatic soft-close doors, keyless access and satellite radio.
  • Luxury Seating: Equips the Gran Turismo with ventilated front seats with 20-way power and massage function.
  • Driver Assistance: Includes a rearview camera and head-up display. An expanded version adds side- and top-view cameras, speed limit info and active safety controls.

CarsDirect Tip

Adding options to any BMW—even one that costs $60,000 in base form—is an expensive activity. We recommend caution, especially since a base 535i Gran Turismo has so many standard features.
