The BMW 5-Series is a popular choice for those looking to buy a mid-level luxury sedan. In the German manufacturer’s Indian lineup, the 5-series sits between the smaller 3-Series and the bigger 7-Series models and rivals the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6, and the Jaguar XF among others in the segment. While the latest generation 5-Series is a great car in every aspect, it is also pretty costly and owning one can be a task. On the contrary, you can go the pre-owned way and get a BMW 5-Series for a fraction of the asking price of a new 5-Series. The same is the case with the BMW 5-Series featured here today which is being offered for much less than the cost of a top-end Maruti Suzuki Dzire sedan.
The white BMW 5-Series featured here is the E60 generation model and seems to be in a decent condition. The asking price of this car is Rs. 7.75 lakhs, which makes it quite a lot cheaper than the top-end Maruti Suzuki Dzire. Do note that the maintenance, running and service cost of this BMW 5-Series will be much higher than the Maruti Dzire. As already mentioned, this one is the E60 gen model which was among the most controversial 5-series ever due to its love it or hate it design.
Going by the images, the exteriors, as well as the interiors of this 5-Series, seem to be in good condition. The sedan has covered nearly 88,000 km and has changed hands once according to its seller. It is a 2009 made BMW 5-Series model and the variant is 520d. The car rides on a set of blacked-out alloy wheels which look pretty good on the white body paint.
The car gets powered by a 1995cc, 4 Cylinder diesel engine that churns out 175 Bhp of power at 4000 rpm along with 350 Nm of torque at 1750 rpm. This engine comes mated to an automatic transmission, which means that driving around in the city with this large saloon won’t be that much of an issue. The car has a fuel tank capacity of 70 litres and comes with disc brakes all around.
Talking about the interiors and features on this car, it comes with 10 Airbags, ABS, push-button start, automatic sunroof, power steering, power windows, automatic dual climate control, touch infotainment system, dual-tone leather interiors, remote central locking, Fog lamps, steering mounted controls, electronic seat adjustments, cruise control, and dual MID display mode among others. The cabin features plush leather upholstery and a black dashboard.
As a general tip, always give a solid hands-on check to the vehicle to make sure it isn’t damaged. Also, one should only go for such high-end cars they can afford to maintain it or else the car will burn a hole in your pocket every time it goes for servicing.
