2022 BMW 520i Luxury Makes PH Debut For P 4.290M (w/ Brochure)


SMC Asia Car Distributors Corporation, the exclusive distributor of BMW automobiles in the Philippines presents the upgraded BMW 5 Series to greet the new year. Already an embodiment of style and practicality, the new BMW 520i Luxury further cements its position as the executive segment’s sportiest and most progressive offering.

“We are thrilled to bring a more intuitive premium business sedan in the BMW 520i Luxury. The updated version brings forth features that are usually found only in the higher tiers of the luxury car market. This wide variety of innovations onboard make it immensely competitive at its price point and renders the new 5 Series perfect for the next generation of trailblazers who are looking to change the way they lead,” says SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp. President, Spencer Yu.



The 2022 BMW 520i Luxury exudes presence with its modified twin-kidney grille. It has been redesigned with extra width and height, and drops down further into the front bumper while being framed by a single-piece trim.

Meanwhile, the slimmer contouring of the headlights brings a modern twist to the focused look that stems from BMW’s heritage. The new Adaptive LED headlights feature a High-beam Assistant and an adaptive cornering function for added safety at night. Black edging and a new L-shaped graphic give the rear lights of the new BMW 5 Series additional visual impact that emphasizes the sedan’s individuality.

The 520i Luxury offers true keyless convenience thanks to its Comfort Access system, while added convenience is provided by the power opening trunk with Kick Function. A Soft Close function quietly pulls the doors to offer an even higher sense of opulence. The cabin also offers full-grain Dakota Leather seats coupled with standard ambient lighting and a four-zone climate control. The interior trim is finished in open-pored fine wood with a pearl chrome finisher.

The driver receives a new 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster Display together with the BMW Live Cockpit Professional with gesture controls. Other premium features include the 16-speaker Harmon Kardon surround system along with connectivity options such as the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.



The 2022 BMW 520i Luxury is being launched with one just engine: a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder featuring the BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. Channeled through an 8-speed automatic, this is enough for the 520i Luxury to reach 100 km/h from a standstill in just 7.9 seconds. Peak horsepower is at 184 horsepower from 5,000 to 6,500 rpm, while peak torque is 290 Nm at a broad 1,350 to 4,250 rpm range.

The attractive pricing and its heightened features meant SMC Asia Car Distributors Corporation had to source the 2022 BMW 520i Luxury not from Germany, but from Malaysia. Still, at P 4.290 million, it represents one of the best value sedans in its segment. The refreshed BMW 5 Series is now available at all authorized BMW dealerships nationwide starting today.
