23rd July, 2009
BMW has announced a revised product offering on all
regular 5 Series models to showcase the latest BMW technology and offer customers 3 years servicing
for no additional cost.
For the first time all 5 Series vehicles will be equipped, as standard, with Head-up Display,
Professional Navigation with 8.8 inch monitor, TV and Voice Recognition in addition to the already
high level of standard equipment.
Furthermore, the 520d, 523i and 525i now receives Park Distance Control, plus the 530i, 530d
and 530i Touring is appointed with Comfort Access as standard fitment. The range topping 550i is
additionally equipped with Comfort Access, HiFi loudspeaker system Logic 7 and Active Cruise
Control with Stop and Go function at no extra cost.
“The new product offering on 5 Series translates to exceptional value for customers wanting
the very best in luxury motoring,” said BMW Group Australia Managing Director, Stavros
“For each 5 Series model the new product offering equates to an injection of significant
around $9,000 of additional value,” he said.
The ownership experience for BMW 5 Series buyers will be further enriched with a 3 year or
60,000km service inclusive package, offering ‘peace of mind’ and a significant reduction in the
cost of ownership versus its competitors.
“The dual benefit of both enriched product substance and 3 years servicing provides a very
compelling opportunity for potential buyers,” Stavros said.
The BMW 5 Series range begins with the frugal 520d that sips just 5.6 litres per 100 kilometres,
thanks to BMW’s EfficientDynamics, and continues to be the volume seller in the 5 Series range.
Diesel power is also offered with the six cylinder 530d that generates 173 kW and 500 Newton meters
of torque and consumes just 6.6 litres per 100 kilometres, comfortably under the 7.0 litres 'LCT'
BMW’s infamous in-line six powers the 523i, 525i and 530i with the 550i propelled by a 270 kW
eight cylinder engine that accelerates from 0-100 km in a blistering 5.6 seconds.
Deliveries of the new BMW 5 Series package commence this month.
