A great article on Penang.

Just days after posting teaser information and images, BMW Malaysia has officially released the specifications and estimated pricing of the new BMW 5 Series facelift. The executive sedan will only be available with the 30-series powertrain designation, either just petrol propulsion or plug-in hybrid.

Both variants of the BMW 5 Series facelift, only in M Sport line, will be locally-assembled here in Malaysia, with an estimated price of RM343,000 and RM396,000 respectively for the 530e PHEV and 530i, both on-the-road, without insurance, and inclusive of sales and service tax.

The entry-level BMW 520i will not be available for now.


Complete with the M Aerodynamics package, the new models are now fitted with larger kidney grilles (wider, taller but positioned lower) and slimmer headlight clusters with a new twin-L-shaped DRLs.

At the back, the lighting units get new 3D housing, featuring a new C-shaped light signature that integrates both the taillights and brake lights into a single lighting fixture.

As standard, both the 530e and 530i get the following exterior features:

  • Full M Aerodynamics package
  • 19″ M light-alloy wheels Y-spoke style 845 M Bicolour with staggered sizing runflat tyres
  • Adaptive suspension
  • Blue painted M Sport brake calipers
  • Powered boot with hands-free operation
  • Dual trapezoidal exhaust outlets

The 530e gets Adaptive LED Matrix headlamps and gloss black window surround (Shadowline in BMW lingo), while the more expensive 530i gets blue-accented BMW Laserlight technology, aluminium satinated surround and a tilt-and-slide moonroof.
