2017 BMW 5 Series sedan | new car sales price


BMW's new seventh-generation 5 Series sedan won't hit our shores until March 2017, but the local model line-up's pricing and specification has been announced with more features as well as higher sticker prices.

Comprising two petrol and two diesel variants, prices start from $93,900 for the entry level 520d, $108,900 for the 530i, $119,900 for the 530d, and $136,900 for the range-topping 540i.

Looking to lock horns with Mercedes-Benz's new E-Class, BMW has understandably increased the specification of the new 5 Series with a host of driver assistance systems and conveniences fitted as standard across the range.

These include the Driving Assistant Plus package that includes Active Cruise with Stop & Go function, front Cross traffic warning, crossroads warning, and Lane Keeping Assistant, the Parking Assistant Plus package with Surround View and Panorama View features, Speed Limiter and Speed Limit Info, the full suite of BMW ConnectedDrive features, LED headlights, and Comfort Access keyless entry and ignition.

Inside the 5 Series range will be fitted as standard with the 10.25-inch Touch Control Display multimedia system with the Navigation system Professional option, electrically adjustable front seats and steering column, head-up display, wireless smartphone charging, and a 12-speaker audio system with DAB+ digital radio.

For those looking for the last word in grunt, the $119,900 530d is the answer.

Priced from $93,900, the 520d represents the entry level choice for the range, with a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine producing 140kW and 400Nm. Coupled to an eight-speed torque converter auto transmission (standard across the new 5 Series range), the 520d is claimed to deliver 4.3L/100km fuel consumption, whilst managing to get from standstill to 100km/h in 7.5 seconds.

Though decorated in the Luxury Line trim package with the Chrome Line exterior option and 18-inch rims as standard, the 520d can also be specified with the optional M Sport Package.

Moving up the variant offerings, the $108,900 530i packs a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit that pumps out 185kW and 350Nm of torque. Zero to 100km/h is dealt with in 6.2 seconds, while fuel consumption is rated at 5.8L/100km.

For those looking for the last word in grunt, the $119,900 530d is the answer with a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six diesel producing 195kW and a thumping 620Nm. Its abundant torque equates to surprisingly low 0-100km/h times and fuel consumption figures at 5.7 seconds and 4.7L/100km respectively.

Unlike the 520d, the 530i and the 530d comes fitted with the M Sport Package with the M Aerodynamics Package and BMW Individual Aluminium satinated Exterior Line as standard.

This package also includes the fitment of M Sport Brakes, Dynamic Damper Control, M leather steering wheel, along with 19-inch BMW M wheels. Meanwhile, the LED headlight units of both 530i and 530d are adaptive and come fitted with BMW Selective Beam and High Beam Assist.

BMW claims the new 5 Series variants are fitted with nearly $16,000 ($34,000 for the 540i) worth of additional features from its specification increase.

In terms of luxuries, both 530i and 530d feature front sport seats with seat heating and lumbar support, a multi-function 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, automatic tailgate operation, an anthracite trimmed roof liner from BMW Individual, and a 16-speaker surround sound system from harmon/kardon.

Topping the new 5 Series launch range is the 540i, powered by a 250kW/450Nm 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol inline-six, which is claimed to blast from 0-100km/h in 5.1 seconds, and return a combined fuel consumption figure of 6.7L/100km.

Being the flagship for now, the $136,900 540i is loaded with added standard goodies including the Adaptive Drive feature with electrically-adjustable active anti-roll bars, 20-inch BMW Individual rims, Nappa leather upholstery, front Comfort seats with active seat ventilation, electric rear window blinds with rear-side window blinds, an electric sunroof, and BMW's fragrance dispensing Ambient Air system.

While the 5 Series range is expected to see price increases of between $3,345 and $12,885 over its equivalent predecessors (with the exception of the 530d), BMW claims the new 5 Series variants are fitted with nearly $16,000 ($34,000 for the 540i) worth of additional features from its specification increase.
