Revealed: BMW 5-Series facelift

2013 BMW 5-series

BMW has added more enhancements to its 5-Series range for less as part of a significant #8220;repositioning#8221; of the line-up.

Already on sale to the public, the facelifted 5-Series range has received price reductions across the board, bringing it into line with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6 offerings.

The 5-Series range starts with the 520i and 520d base models. Priced from $79,900 and $82,400 plus on-roads, both models now receive 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, bi-xenon headlights, electric seat adjustment, gear shift paddles, LED fog lights, sat-nav, rear view camera and a sports leather steering wheel.

The next model up, the 528i, adds 19-inch wheels, adaptive LED headlights, head-up display, digital radio, multi-functional digital instrument display, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and pedestrian warning.

The 535i and 535d gets an automatic parking function, and the range-topping 550i adds quad-zone climate control, electric sunroof, lumbar support, roller sun-blinds and seat heaters.

External changes to the popular executive class model are typically subtle with re-profiled bumpers, altered headlamp and tail lamp graphics, exterior mirrors with repeater lamps and a new range of alloy wheels heading among the stylistic measures aimed at providing the#160;5-Series#160;with fresh visual appeal.

In line with other recent new BMW models, buyers will get to choose between new Luxury#160;line and Modern#160;line and #8220;M Sport#8221; line trim packages.

All engines offered with the new#160;5-Series#160;benefit from an enhanced range of BMW EfficientDynamics features that sees them achieve EU6 emission standards.#160;

Kicking off proceedings is 520i#8217;s turbocharged four-cylinder petrol configuration, which produces 135kW and 270Nm. The range-topping 550i#8217;s figures have been bumped up to 330kW and 650Nm from its 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8.

BMW Australia managing director Phil Horton said the enhancements and revised pricing structure represented better value across the 5-Series range.

#8220;The current BMW 5-Series sedan has been so successful here in Australia, easily leading its segment for the last couple of years,#8221; Horton said, despite sales figures from VFACTs suggesting otherwise. So far in 2013, Mercedes-Benz is leading the sales race with its E-Class #160; (968 units sold versus 839). Benz#160;also triumphed in 2011 and 2010, but in 2012 BMW outsold Benz in the segment by about 50 units.

#8220;Now, with every model in the new BMW 5-Series range available with increased standard specifications, BMW has created a whole new value proposition for the prestige vehicle segment.#8221;

BMW has justified the price reductions to existing 5-Series owners by pointing to heavy price reductions already available on the outgoing model.
