The new 2017 BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo will sport the same retractable spoiler – with an active aerodynamic component – as the one seen on the 3 Series GT.

Along with the 5 Series Sedan and Touring, BMW will debut later the second-generation 5 Series Gran Turismo. The current model has been often criticized for its quirky design, but it was equally liked for its versatility and driving dynamics. We even took the 5 GT to the track a few years back and came back impressed with its athletic abilities.

But now BMW wants to give the buyers a better looking car to match all the other positive attributes.

Previous reports said the future 5 Series GT – or now potentially 6 Series GT – will feature a more aesthetically pleasing design than the current model with the same proportions as the first generation, but with design cues imported from current BMW models – the headlights flow into the kidney grille, the sporty character line sits across the side of the car, while the slopping roof line meets an appealing boot design.

Furthermore, judging by the spy photos seen here, the new Gran Turismo will sport the same retractable spoiler – with an active aerodynamic component – as the one seen on the 3 Series GT.

The new 5 Series family will have its public debut at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, previewed by a web debut in October.
