One of the main concerns when a new BMW model launches is around the new pricing structure. Will the new design come with a price increase? Will it remain the same? Or will we see more standard features at a slight price bump? All of these are valid questions that many of us have asked ourselves days after a new BMW was launched.
While the U.S. pricing is yet to be unveiled, and won’t probably revealed until next year, the UK and German market are the first to be transparent about the pricing scheme. To our surprise, the price increase has not been substantial for many of the models available in the UK market. The entry level model remains the 523i SE (manual transmission) with a base price of £30,560, £1500 more than the previous generation E60.
The E60 525i is being replaced by a new 528i with a naturally aspirated 6 cylinder. While the 525i was priced at £30,705, the F10 528i comes with a price tag of £32,205.
The top mode, 550i with automatic transmission is priced at £49,440, £3480 over the E60 version and the most significant price increase in the new line-up. You can compare the two pricing structures in the following images.
