BMW Gran Turismo is powered by the 2993CC 3.0L Diesel Engine. It generate 180PS @ 4000rpm power and 540 / 1750-3000 torque.
BMW Gran Turismo comes with active safety features like an array of electronic sensors, special side-wall reinforcement, engine management and a precisely-designed network of suspension. Airbags and crash-activated headrests offer further passenger protection.
BMW Gran Turismo features coupé-like descending roofline, long wheelbase and elongated bonnet. It has a contemporary design and distinctive rear adds to the car's dynamic flair. Also, its bodyshell is constructed from new generation steel.
The styling is very bold and has large radiator grille as seen from the 7-series and the CS concept. The body has been made higher than a 5-Series saloon or estate. Despite the use of various tricks to make the 5GT seem longer (reverse-raked front grilles), lower (fastback tail) and wider (big chrome strip across the rear) it looks from every angle like it hasn't just driven to business lunches but partaken in too many of them. The rear lights are oversized and L-shaped and very similar to the ones on the 7-series. The headlights in particular are stunning. The rear has a hatch door that lifts up opening up to a cavernous boot which is an added advantage. Clearly, the rear is inspired by the X6.
The seats are a couple of inches higher (more in the case of the rear ones) which helps visibility and gives a flavour of the command driving position that SUV buyers love. It also improves legroom, while the raised roof does the same for headroom. To make best use of all this space, the rear seats recline through a comfy arc. They also fold like a conventional hatchback's, though they don't actually give a flat floor. From the driving seat, the view takes a sharp turn for the better. For a start, although the dash architecture differs from the 7-Series', the main controls are shared.
