The concept of the X1 combines the many requirements made of a modern compact car in terms of superior function with the benefits of outstanding quality and the pleasure of an emotional driving experience. The X1 is built at BMW Plant Leipzig. This ultra-modern plant stands out in particular through superior flexibility, innovative methods of quality assurance and environmentally friendly production technologies. Its interior offers luxurious comfort, a slightly elevated seating position for comfortable and convenient access as well as superior all-round visibility covering all traffic conditions and impressive variability. The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo is suited for a wonderful travel experience. The ambience makes the driver and passengers feel at home.

The drive-train technology featured on the new BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo comes with a wide range of innovations providing a uniquely good balance of superior performance and supreme fuel economy. Its 3.0-liter engine develops 306 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque.

In addition, all variants of the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo come with an innovative eight-speed automatic transmission offering maximum efficiency ad quick gearshift. The exterior offers a unique combination of versatile sportiness and stylish elegance.
