BMW took the wraps off the production version of the world's first “Progressive Activity Sedan” better known as the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo a long while back. In case you have been carried away by its looks and ignored its features and trims, you can catch up with it here.

The production version of the 5-Series GT does not stray far from the show car which was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show - combining the attributes of a station-wagon, crossover, and a sedan, the actual intention being - to create a 7-Series like luxury car with 5-series exteriors. Overall styling is similar to the X6, but the 5-Series GT due to its lower profile looks sportier.

Most of BMW's trademark drive assists and gadgets remain. The new SAV will come equipped with a Dynamic Drive Control and an Optional Adaptive Drive to maximise the GT’s sporty nature.

Interior touches include an optional panoramic sunroof, fully adjustable rear seats and a dual-function trunk lid — the latter intended to open wide for larger object but keep the cabin isolated when a standard trunk opening will do. In many ways, the 5-Series GT is like a scaled-down X6.

In true premium car fashion, the 5-Series GT will be available with a number of features, including BMW’s ConnectedDrive, a unique feature that includes Cruise Control with Stop & Go, a High-Beam Assistant, Lane Change Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Speed Limit Info, BMW Night Vision with detection of individual persons, Side View, Top View, and a back-up camera.
