What is it?
The 5-Series GT is one of BMW’s biggest mistakes. The large hatchback-style body is meant to hit the middle ground between the 5-Series saloon and Touring, but doesn’t succeed. Mainly because it looks utterly ungainly. BMW has tried to better it over the years with a facelift or two, but it’s a bit like putting make-up on a pig. This is a very ugly car indeed, particularly from the rear (although the M-Sport trim does help lift the front end, a little).
