FUGLY and I say this as a BMW owner and a guy who doesn't think the Accord is all that bad. I first saw one of these in the Munich airport back in October and I remember being sort of drawn to it like a bad auto accident.

It's not very aspirational, is it?

Undoubtedly it's what long-haul senior salesmen would be best off with without going full wagon, but it looks more like a blown-up family hatchback as we say over here than a 'Grand Tourer'.

Good thing is the new regular 5 series (F10) is a splendid car ... and the station wagon (F11), although not out yet, looks promising.

As a BMW owner I am appalled that this is a BMW.

Well, it's not the first time BMW has come out with an ugly car in recent memory:

As a non-BMW owner (but big fan) I am as well appalled.

all that tells you is that everyone ignores you.

I can understand the reasoning of the car, but do not quite get the execution.

I see the car as BMWs response to the Mercedes R-class, but think that BMW did not learn of the mistakes of the Stuttgarters (in their own way). For the sake of slightly better rear-seat conditions and reclining seats, they created a heavy, disproportioned bodywork, with long overhangs, "fat a..s" and IMHO zero character.

Really a mistake in my opinion, but history teaches us that even the most ugly cars sell, so this will not be an exception

I think the question was, "What can we do about the American aversion to wagons?"

I don't like the X6 but I do agree with you.
