Our friends over at Autospies through their Agent 001 bring us some more footage of the new 2011 BMW 5 Series from the International Media Launch in Portugal.
Enthusiastic as always, Agent 001 outlines some of the powerful design elements of the new 5 Series, along with what we’ve been saying for months now: the return to the classic 5er, the core of the brand that defines the market segment.
Most of the reviews have nothing but positive so far and in our opinion, BMW has a winner in their hands. Less controversial than the E60, dynamics, good looking and apparently, it drives like a…BMW. The Munich executives also told the press that the base price of the 2011 BMW 535i would stay the same as the 2010 BMW 5 Series, which has a base price of $51,250. Others, mention a price slightly lower than the E60 models and if that’s the case, we certainly see a lot of 3 Series owners jumping to the next level in their purchase.
