BMW 5 Series gets a new dark-themed, sporty exterior made of carbon fibre for its 530i M Sport. The petrol variant of the 5 Series stands first among its siblings on the spec front. It is now more affordable than the diesel variant even with the new Carbon Edition outer package.

Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India commented on its launch, “The BMW 5 Series is one of the most successful premium executive sedans in India. This timeless machine has always kept our customers enthralled in equal measures of power and play. Now with the new ‘Carbon Edition’, the BMW 5 Series has upped the excitement once again in its segment. The distinct dark carbon exterior elements stir the emotions of a raw, unadulterated sporty driving experience. Combined with the most dynamic petrol engine and innovative technology features of BMW 530i M Sport, it promises an unforgettable drive.”

Exterior Design

The dark black carbon-fibre look extends to the kidney grille, along with a new front splitter, ORVMs and exterior mirror caps. Even the 18-inch alloy wheels sport the jet black look. At the rear, there is a new carbon fibre spoiler finishing off the overall dynamic appearance. This version of the 5 Series is also exclusively available in Alpine White paint shade.
