BMW is offering buyers a new sub-$100k petrol-powered 5-Series. 

The new entry-level 520i arrives with a pricetag of $92,200 before on-road costs, which is $1000 cheaper than the current base diesel-powered 520d. However, BMW will also offer a launch edition of the 520i initially that will cost $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 that produces 135kW and 290Nm and is 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 which includes 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 wheels, Nappa leather upholstery, heated front comfort seats, adaptive damper control, auto tailgate, auto high beam and a dark grey roofliner.
