BMW Australia has introduced two new options packages for the 2015 BMW 5 Series range.

bmw-5-series-1

Available from March production, the new Professional and Exclusive packages bundle together a host of comfort and driver assist systems to enhance the BMW 5 Series sedan, Touring and Gran Turismo models.

The packages will set customers back $900 to $3800 depending on the variant, though according to BMW they add between $5900 and $16,300 of value.

The Professional pack is available on 520i and 528i sedans and all three body styles of the 520d, emphasising active safety and connected mobility. It adds a host of features including a lane change warning system, multifunctional instrument display, driving assistant suite with forward collision and pedestrian warning systems, and the ConnectedDrive Freedom infotainment system with internet-linked applications and emergency service functions.

The Exclusive pack focuses on enhancing the luxury and refinement of the 530d Gran Turismo, 535d and ActiveHybrid 5 sedans, and all three body styles of the 535i. Package highlights include Nappa leather upholstery, soft-close door function, heated comfort seats with active headrests and electrical adjustment, lane change warning system, ConnectedDrive Freedom and the Driving assistant plus suite.

The introduction of the feature-rich packages coincides with the discontinuation of the 550i sedan for the Australian market. The 330kW/650Nm 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8-powered BMW 550i was available exclusively as a sedan, priced from $159,930 in Luxury spec and $163,930 in M Sport trim.
