BMW is preparing to launch its all new 5 Series in Australia in March this year, but before the new E-Class challenger arrives in Australia the full list of pricing and specifications for Australian delivered vehicles has been revealed.

The 5 Series will come in a four- variant range comprising the four-cylinder diesel 520d, four-cylinder petrol 540i, six-cylinder diesel 530d and six-cylinder petrol 540i.

The 520d starts the range off, priced from $93,900 over $9000 more than the entry ticket previous 520d but just $1000 above the cheapest Mercedes-Benz E 220 d.

BMW has ramped up standard equipment levels to suit including LED headlights, self-dimming mirrors, speed sign recognition, active cruise control with Stop&Go function, surround-view camera, 11-mode ambient interior lighting, Dakota leather trim, DAB radio, 12-speaker audio, powered front seats with driver’s memory and powered steering column, keyless entry and start, dual zone climate control and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Power for the 520d comes from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel featuring a twin scroll turbocharger with 140kW and 400Nm, capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in 7.5 seconds with fuel consumption rated at 4.3 l/100km.

Moving up to either the 530i or 530d adds adaptive LED headlights with highbeam assist, sports front seats with seat heating and lumbar support, contactless boot opening, dynamic dampers, M Sport brakes, 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, M Aerodynamics package, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The 530i is powered by a 2.0 litre twin scroll turbocharged petrol engine producing 185kW and 350Nm with fuel consumption rated at 5.8 l/100km and 0-100 acceleration of 6.2 seconds. The 530d runs a six-cylinder turbo diesel with 195kW and 620Nm, 4.7 l/100km fuel consumption, and a 0-100 km/h time of 5.7 seconds.

For now the range will top out with the 540i which adds active anti roll bar suspension, a powered glass sunroof, rear windscreen and side rear window blinds, Nappa leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, comfort front seats with driver and passenger memory, Ambient Air ionisation with fragrance diffuser for up to eight interior scents, and 20-inch alloy wheels.

The 540i runs a 3.0-litre six cylinder twin-scroll turbocharged engine producing 250kW and 450Nm. Fuel consumption is rated at 6.7 l/100km with 0-100 km/h acceleration taking 5.1 seconds.

Optional equipment includes an M Sport styling package for the 520d or Luxury line equipment (in place of the M Sport package) for all other models, Innovations package which adds gesture control, Display Key and remote parking, Indulgence Package for 540i adding soft-close doors, massaging seats, and rear entertainment, and Exclusive package for 520d with Nappa leather, dynamic dampers, heated comfort front seats, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

All 5 Series models are paired to an eight-speed automatic with rear wheel drive. Standard safety systems include six airbags, Active Protection (collision detection and preparation), stability and traction control, ABS brakes with brake assist, and cornering brake control.

The sedan will arrive in Australian dealerships from March, with BMW confirming that the 5 Series Touring wagon will follow in the second half of 2017 with pricing and features to be confirmed closer to the wagons arrival.
