We haven’t seen the all-new generation BMW 5 Series at a world event – such as the Los Angeles Auto Show – yet, but already we have some pricing details that can give us a rough estimate of costs.
The rough estimate has to do with the leaked pricing being for the United Kingdom market, where allegedly the base model will cost £36,025 ($41,715) including the local VAT of 20 percent. The entry-level is the 520d SE, which uses a 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder packing 190 hp, but if you shell out another £3,000 the Bavarian automaker will also throw in the M Sport package. This one includes goodies such as the 18-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, a different design for the front, rear and lateral undersides, a custom steering wheel, M pedals and illuminated door sills. The 520d can also be had with the xDrive AWD, priced from £38,025 ($46,475) in SE spec and £41,025 ($50,142) for the M Sport.
Another diesel option for the UK is the 530d, packing the mightier 3.0-liter six cylinder and again having four different options that will see prices range in between £43,835 ($53,576) and £49,295 ($60,214). The gasoline side is represented by the 530i – turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder good for 249 hp and the 540i which again has a more noble, 3.0-liter inline-six delivering 335 hp. Prices here range in between £40,120 ($49,038) for the rear-wheel drive 530i SE and £49,945 ($61,046) if you go for the 540i xDrive M Sport.
