BMW has expanded the new 5 Series line-up in India by introducing a sporty new variant. Labelled as 530i M Sport, this new variant is priced at Rs 59.20 lakhs ex-showroom and comes with plenty of tech and a powerful petrol motor.
On the outside, the 530i M Sport has its kidney grille slats and several other trim pieces in gloss black. The M Sport package makes the car look more aggressive thanks to the larger air intakes, side skirt trim and a diffusor-style rear apron in metallic black. The chrome tailpipes and 18-inch M design alloy wheels further emphasize the sporty appeal. Inside, you get leather sport seats and aluminium trim pieces with chrome highlights. As an exclusive feature, the vehicle key is designed with M strip. You also get M leather steering wheel, illuminated M door sills and M Sport brakes with blue callipers bearing the M logo.
In terms of tech, this new variant gets the BMW Display Key that allows drivers to keep in contact with their car round the clock. There is also gesture control, wireless charging, remote control parking and surround view camera.
Now, on to the most important bit of the 530i, the engine. The two-litre four cylinder petrol engine makes 252bhp with a maximum torque of 350Nm at 1,450 and 4,800rpm. The car accelerates from 0-100kmph in 6.2 seconds, partly thanks to the quick-shifting eight-speed automatic.
Available in M Sport package, the new BMW 530i is locally produced at BMW’s Chennai facility and is now BS VI compliant. It is now on sale across the country at an ex-showroom price of Rs 59.20 lakhs.
