The five-door “six” replaced the “five” Gran Turismo. The change in the index was marked by an increase in the size of the car, making it now more practical than the 5-Series wagon.
If the volume of the trunk BMW 5 Series station wagon varies from 570 to 1700 liters, then in the “hold” of the new “six” Gran Turismo climbs from 610 to 1800 liters of luggage – an excellent choice for traveling the whole family! The station wagon, however, many will find it more elegant, because the big Bavarian liftback still looks a bit heavy. The developers tried to smooth out the effect of heaviness by lowering the roof by 21 mm and displacing the upper point of the roof arc closer to the center, but from some angles the “six” Gran Turismo still looks a bit disproportionate
To practicality, too, there are a couple of questions, fortunately, uncritical. First, frame less glasses hardly in this case add the car of elegance, they could be replaced with more convenient, traditional. Secondly, the two-section luggage compartment door. Which was considered one of the five-series lift-back bricks, was sunk into oblivion. A small “wicket” allowed keeping warmth in the cabin when loading things in cold weather.
Otherwise, wherever you look – solid pluses: a huge “seven-wheel” wheelbase (3070 mm) guarantees space in the back seat. Modular platform CLAR allowed to reduce the curb weight of the new elevator in comparison with the predecessor by 115-150 kg, depending on the modification. The coefficient of aerodynamic drag from x was reduced from 0.29 to 0.25. Which means that fuel consumption and noise level at high speeds will be less.
Liftback is equipped by default with a rear self-leveling load suspension, for a surcharge, pneumatic springs are also available on the front axle. Also in the form of an option, you can order adaptive shock absorbers, a steering gear with variable gear and a sports M suspension.

A new Bavarian elevator is not a hit in our country – this type of body is in premium -segment, many Russians consider a misunderstanding (sedan and only sedan!). The predecessor was removed from sales last year, so as not to bother with certification under ERA-GLONASS.
