BMW customers in Australia hoping for a budget 5 Series are now in luck, with the introduction of a new 520i variant.

The new petrol-powered 520i steps below the $100,000 barrier with a starting price of $92,200 before on-road costs, making it $1000 cheaper than the current 520d diesel.

But a special Launch Edition will see the new 520i scrape in under $100k including on-road costs, priced at $99,900 drive-away when it goes on sale in September.

Power for the 520i comes from a 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit producing 135kW and 290Nm, matched to an eight-speed automatic with power delivered to the rear wheels. Fuel use is rated at a claimed 6.2L/100km.

BMW has equipped the 520i with the same standard gear as the 520d, including 18-inch alloy wheels, Dakota leather upholstery, electric front seats, wireless device charging, head-up display, 12-speaker stereo and DAB+ digital radio.

On the infotainment side, BMW has included the latest iDrive 6 system which is accessed through a 10.25-inch touchscreen. However, BMW's unique wireless Apple CarPlay will be an optional extra.

The launch edition can be specified in two trim lines; either the Luxury Line or M Sport packages which add to the standard specification of the 520i.

Those equipped with the Luxury Line package will feature a choice between two 19-inch alloy wheel designs, Nappa leather upholstery, heated front comfort seats, adaptive damper control, auto tailgate, auto high beam and a dark grey roofliner.

While those choosing the M Sport pack will get 19-inch M light-alloy wheels, M aerodynamic pack, chrome tailpipes, M Sport suspension, front sport seats, M leather steering wheel, illuminated door sills and either satined aluminum or black exterior Shadowline vinyl widow surrounds.
