Australia: 2017 G30 BMW 5-Series – Prices Set at AUD 93,900

Slowly but surely, the all-new 2017 G30 BMW 5-Series is making its debut on most important parts of the world, and after seeing it announced in Europe, the high-end model is now preparing for a final debut in Australia, next March.

As expected, the model won`t come cheap in all available variants. The cheapest version costs AUD 93,900, while the most expensive variant sets you back at AUD136,900. Each one comes with standard common features, adding as well different styling parts and engines under the hood.

Speaking about performance, the entry-level 520d comes with a 2.0-liter diesel mill, which is extremely fuel-efficient and is closely followed by the 2.0-liter turbo petrol in the 530i variant. The latter one churns out 185 kW and 350 Nm of torque, enough to deliver a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds.

The 530d on the other hand comes with a 3.0-liter straight six-cylinder diesel engine with 195 kW and 620 Nm of torque, while the top of the line 540i is also powerful with the 3.0-liter turbo petrol six-cylinder, with 250 kW and 450 Nm of torque. This one allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds.
