The only other BMW vehicle we can think of that has received so much flack for its looks as the 5-Series Gran Turismo or GT for short, is the Chris Bangle-era 7-Series E65 (codenamed E66 for the LWB variants).
And from the looks of things, we somehow don't think this will change with the mid-life facelift BMW is preparing for the 5-Series GT and which will incorporate a similar suite of subtle styling and possibly mechanical upgrades to the rest of the 2014 model 5-Series sedan and Touring variants.
As with the aforementioned body styles, the GT, which tries to combine elements and design cues from sedans, liftbacks, SUVs and estates into a single entity, will sport revisions to the front and rear ends, and most likely, refined interior features.
We could also see some updates to the available powertrains to improve their fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.
The entire 2014MY 5-Series range will launch next spring.
