BMW 5 Series 2013 range updates

The popular BMW 5 Series range has been updated and now costs from £31,530

The BMW 5 Series range has been revamped in an effort to sustain its appeal as one of the most popular executive cars on the market.

Most of the changes are to the engine line-up, with the entry-level 520d diesel now emitting just 119g/km of CO2, whether you specify the manual or the automatic gearbox. This is down from 125g/km. The current EfficientDynamics version has been discontinued, with an all-new 518d expected to take its place later this year.

Prices for the revised BMW 5 Series saloon start at £31,530 for the 520d SE, while the Touring estate and Gran Turismo hatchback now cost from £33,855 and £37,605 respectively. Top-of-the-range 550i petrol models cost £57,165 for the saloon, £59,635 for the Touring and £59,060 for the Gran Turismo.

All engines across the 5 Series range are now Euro 6 compliant, too. This means they meet the latest strict emissions standards set by the EU, which will come into force this September.

Styling tweaks are limited, with all models now getting a new front bumper design and slightly revised rear lights. Every 5 Series also has xenon lights as standard, as well as sat-nav and a head-up display that projects the car’s speed onto the windscreen in the driver’s line of sight.

The 5 Series Gran Turismo has been subject to the same changes, while a new tailgate design helps increase boot space from 440 litres to 500 litres.
