BMW 530i And 630i GT M Sport Gain 50 Jahre M Editions In India


Following the launch of the M340i xDrive 50 Jahre M Edition in India, BMW introduced similar versions of the 5-Series and the 6-Series GT as part of the celebrations for BMW M’s 50th anniversary. More specifically, it rolled out special editions of the 530i and 630i trims with some extra special touches to mark the occasion.

The models which are heading towards the end of their lifecycle are fitted with the M Sport package which adds sportiness to the design. The 50 Jahre M Editions are distinguished by the gloss black finish on the kidney grille, bumper intakes, and rear apron, the special logo, and the unique jet-black wheels. The 5-Series has a set of 18-inch alloy wheels while the 6-Series has a different set of 19-inch alloys. Behind them, we can see the M Sport brakes with red-painted callipers. The exterior can be customized further by the optional M Accessories, or the Carbon Package.

Inside, equipment includes the BMW Live Cockpit Professional with dual 12.3-inch displays incorporating the BMW Operating System 7.0 software instead of the newer 8.0. The models also get Sports seats upholstered in Dakota leather, M seatbelts, ambient lighting, four-zone climate control, leather steering, wireless charging pad, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. Adaptive suspension is also included in the standard kit.

Both models are fitted with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, sending power to the rear axle through the eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic gearbox. However, the engines have a slightly different tune with 248 hp (185 kW / 252 PS) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque for the 530i, and a slightly increased 255 hp (190 kW / 258 PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque for the 630i.

In the Indian market, the 530i M Sport 50 Jahre M Edition starts at Rs 67.50 lakh ($84,525), while the 630i M Sport 50 Jahre M Edition is a little bit more expensive starting at Rs 72.90 lakh ($91,280). Both models are locally produced in BMW’s Chennai plant.

BMW has announced it will introduce a total of ten 50 Jahre M Editions in India by the end of 2022. After the 3-Series, 5-Series, and 6-Series GT, we expect the M4, the M5, and various X models to receive the anniversary treatment.
