Why improve on something like this? It's like putting make up on Danny DeVito hoping he will do a part meant for Brad Pitt...

For what's its worth, it does not sell well in Canada. I don't understand the market for this thing, considering the 5-series Touring, X5, and X6 exist.

Guys, I don't think it's the price. I think it's just because it's absolutely hideous and is one of the most stupid cars ever put to production. It's just awful. How someone could could look at it on their drive and not feel humiliated is beyond me.

It seems they haven't sold anywhere, but its a good niche market, but its too pricy for its market, people just go for the more practical x5

Poor sales in Asia also. Too expensive, people rather get the X5 instead here.

Poor seller in the States too.

Not sure why BMW bothered. It has been a very poor seller in the UK. Maybe they're popular in mainland Europe...

Would rather have a standard 5 series

@chase it actually is not a shitty car haha, just some people don't like the looks of the car

It really isnt that bad
Chase Huddles Nov 07, 2012
It looks like a smaller, uglier, x6. The Germans really are on the cutting edge of shitty sub-models.

One of the FedEx drivers I know has a car that looks literally exactly like this in black. Literally just like it. BMW facelifts must really suck. I hate their new designs, the cars have just gotten ugly lately. Besides like 2 models. Wow.

I always thought the current GT was hideous, and hope that BMW gives this thing a better look... Though these spy photos don't give me much hope

I was about to say the same thing..

Looks like a Prius from this angle

First time I saw this on the road from behind I nearly vomited.

I'm not sure who they think will buy this.

Angel, it does have different looking exhaust in the US version, but I'm not sure about the European model.

Tailpipes look awkward with such a large, bulky back. Needs the 550i style dual exhaust.
