BMW 5 Series Wagon could be replaced by GT

BMW 5 Series 540i Wagon

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.

OK you’re entitled to your opinion but the GT is just not practical….maybe i’m a traditionalist who goes against ur grain but 2 big dogs and kids WON’T fit into a GT with any degree of comfort!!

If BMWUSA dumps the Touring for the GT they’ll be slamming the door on a market segment that HAS $ and one that is absolutely uninterested in A HATCHBACK! …Jesus are we back in a 80’s timewarp? HATCHBACKS are not hip! They like a tool-mobile and u wanna talk about possibly the most UNSEXXXY body style…..go enjoy it.

BTW I have a Z8, and a Range Rover I was going to trade on the new Touring…I HAVE a sports car, I don’t need A WANNA BE SPORTS CAR ! …there is NOTHING attractive about a 5 door coupe/sedan // sedan/coupe… what the HELL is that X6??? …the tool of tool cars !…whatever u wanna call it…a HATCHBACK a vehicle for tools who don’t want to accept they can’t have a 2 door for PRACTICAL purposes and need to self-justify their choices.

Have a swell time in your HATCHBACK Man. No hard feelings.
