BMW 520d Launch In India Soon – Detailed Specifications Features & Price


Sedans have always been a preference for most of the upper middle class families as they are spacious enough to accommodate a normal family of 5 persons and have their very own distinctive road presence. It is not that sedans are always too expensive. A lot of sedans existing in the Indian market are cheap and can fit anybody’s pocket extremely well.

Apart from upcoming and existing sedans like Fiat Linea, Volkswagen Vento , Maruti Suzuki Kizashi, Volkswagen Jetta, Volkswagen Passat etc which are affordable and are a good value for money, there are a few brands like Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW whose cars are a bit too expensive.


Inspite of being expensive these cars offer a lot more than what you can expect from an ordinary family sedan and once its in your garage, visitors wont take their eyes of them. BMW presently sells two cars under its BMW 5 Series, 525d and 530d which cost a buyer somewhere around Rs 40 lakh or even more, but now it is considering of bringing in BMW 520d which is said to be the cheapest of them all.

Being cheap doesn’t mean it will come at the cost of a Linea of Vento and will lack the numerous feature, but it is way less expensive than its siblings and yet delivers a handful.
