BMW will soon add a new M Sport variant, the BMW 5 Series for the petrol version namely BMW 530i M Sport. BMW India launched just one variant of the 5-series petrol - Sport line, in June 2017, where the currently M Sport variant is available on the diesel version. In India, BMW offers the 5-series in three variants 530i Sport Line priced at Rs 53.80 lakh, 520d Luxury Line tagged with a price of Rs 58.70 lakh and the 530d M Sport at Rs 66.20 lakh (all prices ex-showroom).
The BMW 5-series M Sport version will get M Sport packing for its exterior that includes sportier bumper for front and rear, a set of 18-inch M alloy wheels and rectangular muffler tips. The M Sport version would also come with adaptive LED headlights along with LED fog lights and a sunroof. It will be available in four exterior paint options - Alpine White, Mediterranean Blue, Black Sapphire and Bluestone.
On the inside, the car will come packed with gets sporty Dakota leather upholstery, Aluminium interior trim along with pearl chrome highlights, and a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay, BMW apps, navigation as well as gesture control, ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control and wireless charging. The car also gets BMW Display key, remote control parking, park assist with a surround view camera, dynamic damper control and a 12.3-inch instrument cluster display.
Interesting part comes under the bonnet, the BMW 530i Sport is power-packed with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that makes 248 bhp of maximum power with 350 Nm of top torque. The petrol comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that transmits power to the rear wheels and buyers can also make use of paddle shifters for gear shifting.
We can make any mark for the prices of the 530i M Sport but it is pretty obvious that it will be pricier than the petrol Sport Line variant. The BMW 5-series pounces against the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Jaguar XF and Audi A6.
