After an interview with BMW taken by Inside Line, we found out that the sales of 5 Series 540i Wagon dicreased. When it will be available for sale, in 2010, Gran Turismo Crossover will probably replace in the U.S. market, the 5 Series 540i Wagon. The decision is not official but all over the internet walks the noise that this is what is going to happen.
The new 5 Series GT Crossover had been unveiled at the 2009 Geneva auto show. BMW thinks can sell 4.000 – 8.000 units of GT Crossover from 5-Series, comparing with 540i Wagon who sold just 400 units in U.S. this year. The 5 Series 540i Wagon started badly with sales since the launch selling just 2351 units. Anyway, if you’re in the U.S. and want to buy a 5 Series Wagon, must know that Europe will still sell.
My opinion is that a GT Crossover is a better choice representing the new generation of cars and a very nice design comparing with 540i Wagon but this is because I don’t like any kind of wagon car.
