The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i 5-door sport hatchback rolls into 2012 with no new features, other than the introduction of BMW Apps, which enable owners to access certain smartphone apps using the automaker's optional Connected Drive interface and an in-car display screen. Power for the rear-wheel-drive Gran Turismo 535i comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine, which generates 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. The engine mates to an 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission with Sport and Manual shift modes, as well as Adaptive Transmission Control. Fuel economy numbers check in at 20 mpg city/30 highway. Standard safety features include 6 airbags, as well as Dynamic Stability Control with Dynamic Traction Control, Brake Fade Compensation and a Start-off Assistant. In addition, a BMW Assist Safety Plan includes such features as automatic collision notification, roadside assistance, remote door unlock and a stolen vehicle locator service.

Inside, the Gran Turismo 535i comes well-equipped with such standard luxury-oriented features as Dakota leather upholstery and Dark Wood trim, although owners can add optional Ash Grain Wood or Fineline Matte Wood interior trim at no extra cost. The front seats feature 10-way power adjustment with 4-way lumbar support and memory settings. In its standard configuration, the 535i seats 5 passengers. However, owners can add an optional Luxury Rear Seating Package, which reduces seating capacity to 4 and replaces the second-row, 3-passenger bench seat with 2 power-adjustable heated and ventilated individual seats separated by a center console. Other upscale features include a panoramic slide/tilt moonroof, push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a power tilt/telescopic column and a 12-speaker, 205-watt audio system with a CD/MP3 player, HD radio, Bluetooth and a USB port.

Outside, the Gran Turismo 535i displays a distinctive twin-kidney grille, auto-leveling HID headlights with LED corona rings and halogen foglights, as well as frameless side windows, L-shaped LED taillights and dual round chrome exhaust tips. In addition, the unique dual-access tailgate features a lower trunklid for loading smaller items and opens like a full SUV hatch for stowing larger items.
