Honestly, I can think of few recent cars as reviled as the 5-Series GT. Instead of giving us Americans the vaunted 5-Series Touring wagon, BMW brought us this bloated minivan-hatchback thing. Why do they hate us so much?

Okay, so it's goofy-looking. But is it all bad? Totally not, says John Davis, even if calls it "lumpy" at one point. This MotorWeek clip from a few years ago finds it to be a spacious, well-equipped, solid handling and relatively quick luxury machine.

In essence, it's a real 5-Series. Just not a pretty one.
