19 City / 27 Highway
Contributing Editor -

Serving as a stylish and practical variant of the midsize BMW 5 Series sedan (with a trunk), the 535 Gran Turismo wears a tall hatchback body. Measuring just below typical crossover SUV height, the GT edition becomes a spacious touring car, providing greater versatility and more cargo space than any conventional sedan could offer.

To some eyes, the hatchback body may appear unconventional, while others prefer its look. Beneath the surface, looks aside, the Gran Turismo is undiluted 5 Series. That means well-proven mechanical elements, combined with a sizable selection of luxuries and interior features.

What's New for 2016

Gearshift paddles now are standard, and turbine 19-inch alloy wheels are optional. Enhanced USB and Bluetooth is newly standard, including Mobile Office, an additional microphone, Bluetooth for a second phone, and library browsing.

Choosing Your BMW 535 Gran Turismo

Serving as the “junior” member of the 5 Series Gran Turismo duo, the hatchback 535 gets a turbocharged 3-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard, but xDrive all-wheel drive is optional. An automatic stop-start feature helps improve fuel economy, which is estimated at 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway (18/26 with xDrive).

Each 535 Gran Turismo has a self-leveling rear air suspension and 18-inch light alloy wheels. Standard equipment also includes a leather and dark wood interior, 14-way power front seats with driver’s memory settings, navigation with integrated smartphone apps, a panoramic sunroof, auto-dimming mirrors, adaptive xenon headlights, and front/rear parking sensors. The 12-speaker sound system includes HD radio and a CD player. An integrated "trunk" lid on the power liftgate can be opened independently of the glass area.

Two optional design lines are available: Luxury and M Sport. The Luxury line gets specific 19- or 20-inch wheels, upgraded leather upholstery, LED foglamps, and a choice of wood interior trim. The M Sport line has V-spoke 19-inch wheels, an aerodynamic body kit, dark exterior trim, and sportier interior appointments, including an Anthracite headliner.

Available option packages begin with the Premium group, which adds Comfort Access keyless entry, automatic soft-close doors, and satellite radio. The Luxury Seating package adds 20-way ventilated power front seats with massage functions. Heated seats for everyone are part of the Cold Weather Package, which also includes a heated steering wheel and headlight washers. Full LED lights and automatic high beams make up the Lighting package.

The Driver Assistance package combines a rearview camera with a head-up display. Driver Assistance Plus adds blind-spot monitoring, a lane departure warning, a side- and top-view camera system, and active collision mitigation. Adaptive cruise control is optional. Sport-minded buyers should welcome the Dynamic Handling package, which equips the Gran Turismo with an adaptive suspension and active roll stabilization, promising greater confidence on winding roads.

BMW offers several interesting individual options, including four-wheel steering, an automated parking system, an ultra-premium 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, power rear sunshades, and infrared Night Vision with pedestrian detection.

CarsDirect Tip

Because the hatchback Gran Turismo has a higher center of gravity and greater weight than a regular 5 Series sedan, it doesn't handle with quite the same precision. Most drivers won’t notice any shortage of surefootedness. But if you prefer as sporty a road experience as possible, the Dynamic Handling package might be worth the extra $3,500.
