The all-new 2017 BMW 5-Series will arrive in dealerships in February with a list price of $52,195. BMW’s price tag for the 5-Series goes up about $1,000 from its predecessor, but the new car also has more standard features to justify the price hike.
While the 5-Series lineup is going to expand with new models such as the M550i xDrive and 530e iPerformance hybrid version later in the spring, so far pricing has only been announced for the 5-Series core models, which is as follows:
- 530i – $52,195
- 530i xDrive – $54,495
- 540i – $57,445
- 540i xDrive – $59,745
All prices include a $995 destination charge.
The 530i will be powered by BMW’s familiar turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. 540i buyers will be treated with another familiar BMW powertrain, the turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 with 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. In both cases the power flows through an 8-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels, while both models offer optional xDrive all-wheel-drive.
The new 5-Series is also gaining some new-to-BMW features, such as driver assist systems that make the 5-Series semi-autonomous. It also gains performance-focused features such as Dynamic Damper Control and Integral Active Steering, while tech-minded folks will enjoy the brand’s latest version of their iDrive control system.
All 5-Series sedans will feature LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, an anthracite headliner and an active safety system.
