German luxury car manufacturer BMW plans to launch the new 5-series
in India on June 29, 2017. The car was unveiled globally last year in October.
The incoming model is said to be both larger and lighter than the outgoing
model and gets a much more aggressive look. BMW may offer three different
engine options on the new 5-series in India and may launch it a starting price of around Rs. 54 lakh (ex-showroom).
Apart from standard convenience features being seen in the segment
BMW will be offering new technology on the 5-series which will be able to set
it apart from the rest. These include technology such as gesture control,
remote key controlled parking and adaptive dampers. Not only on the design
front but in terms of technology as well the new 2017 5-series borrows strongly
from the 7-series. BMW recently launched a new variant of their flagship
7-series -- the 760Li x-Drive in India for Rs. 2.27 crore. The 760Li x-Drive
happens to be the most powerful BMW ever.
The 5-series will go up against the likes of the Mercedes E-Class,
Audi A6, Volvo S90 and the Jaguar XF.
2017 BMW 520d

2017 BMW 530d

One can only speculate as to what the exact price of the new 2017
BMW 5-series would be but we estimate it to be launched around the Rs. 54 lakh
mark. The top model of the new 2017 5-series would in all probability be priced
around the Rs. 66 lakh mark. With the introduction of new technology along with
a better design and performance the prices for the new 2017 5-series are also
expected to be higher.

engine options. The variants would be powered by a 2.0litre, in-line, 4
cylinder diesel engine, a 3.0litre, in-line 6 cylinder diesel engine and a 2.0litre,
