BMW has launched the facelifted M5 Competition in India for Rs 1.62 crore (ex-showroom, India). The updated performance sedan mainly gets a power bump and cosmetic upgrades inside and out. 

For starters, the M5 Competition facelift retains its 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which produces 625PS and 750Nm, and is paired to an 8-speed M steptronic automatic transmission. It can achieve 100kmph from standstill in just 3.3 seconds, with the top speed limited to 305kmph. 

The retuned chassis, new M-specific suspension, the M8 Gran Coupe’s shock absorbers and the xDrive all-wheel-drive system (4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD), make up for better performance and handling. 

In terms of styling, it gets upgrades in line with the recently facelifted 5 Series sedan. Other than the revised front grille, new LED headlamps and redesigned bumpers borrowed from the 5 Series, the M5 Competition gets its exclusive ‘M’ design elements. 

These ‘M’ design elements comprise a blacked out treatment for the grille, ORVMs, 20-inch M-Light alloy wheels, and rear lip spoiler. It further gets blacked-out chrome quad M-Sport exhaust tips, a carbon fibre roof, smoked BMW laser lights and smoked LED tail lamps. 

The cabin has also been refreshed with a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with live cockpit, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, connected car technology, and new full leather upholstery. The new M5 Competition also features a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster, gesture control, parking assistance, adaptive cruise control, head-up display, a Harman Kardon 16-speaker setup, and a wireless display key. 

Safety is covered by six airbags, brake assist, dynamic stability control, traction control, electronic differential locking, cornering brake control, and automatic emergency braking.
