All-New BMW 5 Series Assembly Starts In Chennai

The seventh generation 5 Series will roll out from BMW’s Chennai facility and will be launched on June 29

2017 BMW 5 Series

Just two weeks away from launch, BMW has begun assembly of the all-new 5 Series at its Chennai facility here in India. The seventh generation 5 Series will enter the market on June 29, 2017, and will rival the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Jaguar XF, Audi A6 and the Volvo S60. This generation of the 5 Series is a particularly interesting one as it has brought the ‘5’ moniker really close to its elder brother - the 7. Be it in terms of look or features, the all-new 5 Series is just marginally shy from its flagship sibling.

The all-new 5 Series in India will be offered with a total of three engine options – one petrol and two diesel. The petrol mill is in the 530i guise and will be powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor producing 252PS of maximum power and 350Nm of peak torque. The smaller diesel, the 520d, will be powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel motor which will pack 190PS of maximum power and 400Nm of peak torque. The flagship diesel will be the 530d which will have a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine under that long bonnet. This diesel churns out 265PS of maximum power and a massive 620Nm of peak torque. All of these engines will send the power where we like the the most - the rear wheels. The performance-oriented M5 will be revealed at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor show and should see the Indian sun soon after.

The BMW 5 Series will be feature-loaded with wizardry borrowed from the 7. It will pack features like remote control parking system, gesture control for the infotainment system, wireless phone charging, all-digital instrument cluster etc. Also, being the top of the range option, the BMW 5 Series 530d will be exclusively available only in the M Sport trim, which will set it apart with some sporty apparel. The other two, 530i and the 520d, could be offered in two trim levels, most probably Prestige and Luxury Line.
