The seventh-generation BMW 5-Series 2017 has been launched in India. The mid-size sedan is available in three variants – Sport Line, Luxury Line and M-Sport. It comes with both petrol and diesel engine options, however, the petrol model can only be brought in the entry-level Sport Line trim. Prices of the 2017 BMW 5-Series start at Rs. 49.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and go up to Rs. 61.30 lakh.
Frankly, this pricing appears to be spot on for the new 5-Series. The sedan’s biggest rival – the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has already been given a massive USP (unique selling proposition) with the longer wheelbase model. As a result, it was important for BMW India to keep the prices of the new-gen 5-Series competitive, and this is exactly what the German automaker has managed to do. A vital reason behind this pricing strategy is the fact that the new 5-Series is produced locally in India.
The BMW 5-Series 2017 is built on the company’s new Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform. This is the same platform that debuted under the new-gen 7-Series last year. With the two cars sharing the platforms, many design elements of the new 5-Series also appear to be inspired from its elder sibling. This helps in giving a family design to BMW’s complete sedan portfolio.
