Based on BMW’s midsize 5 Series, the 550 Gran Turismo is a four-door hatchback with a tall body that stops just short of crossover height. The unique design offers significantly more utility and cargo space than even the largest luxury sedans.

What's New for 2014

The front and rear fascias receive a fresh look, and the liftgate has been reshaped for slightly more room in back. Navigation is now standard and comes with a new touchpad controller. BMW has also added two optional trim lines: Modern and Luxury.

Choosing Your 550 Gran Turismo

The sole powertrain is a 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 with 445 horsepower and an eight-speed automatic transmission. BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive setup is optional.

As expected, the Gran Turismo is lavishly equipped from the start with features like leather seating with driver memory and 20-way power in front, Bluetooth phone and audio, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors, navigation, HD radio and adaptive xenon headlamps.

You can enhance the character of the Gran Turismo with three available trim lines:

  • Luxury: Comes with multi-spoke 19- or 20-inch wheels, a sport steering wheel, your choice of wood interior trim, LED foglamps and specific seat stitching.
  • Modern: Similar to above, but with turbine-style wheels and different interior trim choices.
  • M Sport: Features an aerodynamic body kit, V-spoke wheels, black exterior trim, an M Sport steering wheel and a high top-speed limiter.

The Gran Turismo can be further customized with several option packages:

CarsDirect Tip

Most available options are a matter of personal taste. That said, the Dynamic Handling Package effectively compensates for the Gran Turismo’s size and weight, which exceed that of the 5 Series sedan.
