Taking the 5 Series Sedan’s characteristics and kicking it up a notch higher for the more travel and family-oriented Filipino is the BMW 5 Series Gran turismo (GT). With the same grand exterior styling found on the 5 Series Sedan, only bigger, the 5 Series GT cuts through the wind with fluidity and sexiness. That can be said with the exterior, but the interior is where everything’s at! Roomier, much more comfortable, and much cosier for the entire family or group of 4 or 5 people, the 5 Series GT offers more than just that sense of exclusivity felt when being on board a Bimmer.
With the looks comes the performance, and like us Filipinos, the 5 Series GT is always up to the challenge a la “Katipunero”, for what powers the 5 Series Sedan also give the 5 Series GT life. This time, the choices include a 4.4L Twin Turbo V8, and a 3.0L in-line 6-cylinder gas or petrol engines. Power management is courtesy of an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 5 Series GT also comes with an xDrive option as a variant for that extra bit of responsiveness on the road.
