BMW just launched the official website of the new BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo. Along with the microsite, a new set of photos and videos have been released as well. The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo launches in a new, unexplored market for BMW, a market which demands a luxurious car that offers generous interior and cargo space, performance, dynamics while maintain high comfort levels.
The debate on whether this model will be successful, has already began and BMW fans across seem to be equally divided into two sides. While some see the 5 GT as a progression of the current BMW line-up and an expansion into new markets, others more conservative are afraid that it diminishes the core of BMW models.
When the first official photos hit the web, it seemed to be far more people opposing the new 5 GT, but with new photos and videos being released, the negative current seems to be shifting towards positive or at best neutral. We still believe that this is a niche car, same as the X6, and it will be hard to satisfy the large diversity of BMW fans. In our opinion, seeing the car in person will be the true test and afterwards a more objective opinion could be stated.
In the mean time, let’s enjoy these new photos and take it from here.
