After admitting defeat on their BMW 5 Series GT and its very poor sales, the Bavarians are considering recapturing the market they were initially aiming for.
The people who are looking for a sensible estate, one with plenty of room for a decent family road trip and which can still be pleasurable to drive.
If that’s who you are, you would most likely appreciate the F10 BMW 5 Series estate and it’s you who BMW is rumored to be targeting once again.
There’s still a lot of things that need to happen before you’ll be able to go down to your local BMW dealer and spec up your very own 5 Series estate but it seems like there’s almost no reason to go against it.
Apart from the better looks of the new BMW 5 Series estate compared to the GT, there’s a great deal of importance to consider in technical aspects.
A 2012-2013 model year is to be expected and it would bring along a BMW family car which has smaller engines, better fuel economy, better taxes and which offers similar performance.
Honestly, the more I think about the advantages of going back to the BMW 5 Series estate in America and ditching the 5 Series GT, it all seems to be for it and nothing against.
Which begs the question, what are the Germans waiting for?
