Firstly, we shall not repeat in detail on this car, because the presentation has been made here. Then, this test did not test value, it consisted of a small rolling a ten minute. But it is enough to make an initial ruling on the BMW 5 Series GT in its 530d.

On the aesthetic point of view (it is always a subjective assessment …), this GT Series 5 more value in the movement in photography or in a salon. You get used to this new generation before seen on the Round 7 and X1. The rear seems « robust ». It will take some time, but it is very likely that GT Series 5 going to the hole.

Inside, what is striking is the quality of assemblies. Everything is plush and soft. The seats and steering wheel are adjustable in almost every sense. The chest is opened as a conventional trunk or a hatchback. It’s a safe bet that you open most often as « tailgate. »

On the road:

Silence. Not a sound. If this is the tires and other cars. You get the display HUD. The engine is smooth, the automatic gearbox as well. The steering is precise. It glides over a net gas before making the highway a few seconds. The acceleration is correct but we feel the weight muzzle the six-cylinder diesel. Because it is still and always her enemy. It hurts performance, consumers and the environment.

Moreover, according to information circulating on the Net, could power its BMW PAS (Progressive Activity Sedan) Engine 2.0-liter 4-cylinder (found on the 120d and 320d and others) of 177 horses. For once, you will not buy this car for this performance but rather for the luxury and comfort. And there you should be filled!
