BMW 535i Sedan – How much is car insurance?
The BMW 535i Sedan is a premium luxury town car with correspondingly high insurance rates. A competitive cost for a typical 100/300/50 policy is $1,805 per year. While this coverage is far higher than most states’ required minimum, it is more than reasonable considering the average cost of an injury accident.
These coverage amounts allow for personal injury protection for a single individual up to $100,000, with caps of $300,000 for two or more persons injured in a motor vehicle accident. The coverage also provides up to $50,000 for property damage.
Collision coverage with a $500 deductible is also provided for in this quote, as is comprehensive coverage, also with a $500 deductible. In addition, an extra $25,000 to cover the insured driver’s medical expenses and uninsured motorist protection of $25,000 – $50,000 are also provided.
These quotes are an average of what a BMW 535 Sedan owner in the United States can expect to pay. Individual car insurance quotes across the country may vary widely, depending on state regulations and the particular companies licensed to do business in each location.
The above quotes also assume that the driver/insured is an individual under age 65 with a clean driving record and at least six years experience on the road. Rates for drivers under the age of 25 and for drivers with one or more traffic violations or chargeable accidents will likely pay significantly higher premiums.
How much will a BMW 535i Sedan cost?
The first thing that one notices about BMW’s unique 5 Series is that the single manufacturer’s suggested price shown on each of BMW’s 3 Series models, has been replaced by a price range, in this case between $46,900 and $68,300. This pricing reflects the variety and scope of the many enticing option packages, some of which are only available on this flagship line of quality BMW automobiles!
The BMW 535i Sedan itself can be purchased in any one of four variations, starting at $52,500 for the well-equipped 535i Sedan. Other 535i Sedan models include the BMW 535i xDrive Sedan starting at $54,800, the BMW 535i Gran Turismo Hatchback starting at $57,000, and the BMW 535i xDrive Gran Turismo Hatchback starting at $59,300.
The basic BMW 535i Sedan features a 3-liter turbocharged, 6-cylinder DOHC engine. It runs on premium-unleaded fuel and can range 388 miles with its large 18.5-gallon tank. On the highway, the 535i gets a solid 27 mpg, while still delivering 18 mpg in the city for a 21 mpg combined average.
By purchasing the xDrive Sedan, the new 5 Series owner gains BMW’s patented all wheel drive technology, available as an option on the basic Sedan and Gran Turismo models. It replaces the 4-wheel drive package offered on earlier vehicles.
The BMW Gran Turismo is a new concept car offering unparalleled space and added creature comforts. Features include more head and leg room, reclining front and rear seats, better visibility and first class comfort not only for the driver, but for all passengers, both front and back.
What other optional packages are offered in the 5 Series?
There are more than three dozen additional packages and single option choices for the 535i Sedan alone. The xDrive Gran Turismo models also feature a number of exclusive options. One of the more popular premium packages includes a power lift gate, garage door opener and parking distance control.
The BMW 535i premium sound package includes a 16-speaker system with two sub-woofers and a 9-channel, 600-watt amplifier. A sport package is also available for the BMW535i, which includes 19-inch wire alloy wheels, shadowline trim, select suspension, leather trimmed steering wheel, multi-contour seats, anthracite headliner and special tires.
Is the BMW 535i Sedan a safe vehicle?
That would have to be an unqualified yes! The last year that crash safety figures were available was 2009. The BMW 535i Sedan received high marks in virtually all areas tested, earning a five star rating for safety involving passenger side crashes, rear occupant crashes, and side driver crashes.
Driver front impact crashes garnered a three star rating while safety factors on vehicle rollovers earned four stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, who conducts periodic tests on all passenger vehicles sold in the United States.
What are the built in BMW safety features?
All 5 Series automobiles include an impressive list of safety features. Handling features include four-wheel anti-lock brakes and electronic stabilization and control. The interior cabin includes pretension seat belts and an advanced airbag system, which protects occupants from front and side crashes and includes bags specially designed to protect the head.
For younger passengers, BMW includes child seat anchors. Additional safety features like a tire pressure monitor allow drivers to spot possible trouble before it occurs. In case of an accident, the 535i sedan includes automatic crash notification.
What is the BMW warranty like?
The basic BMW warranty is virtually the same for all classes and models of BMW vehicles. Other than parts which need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear, such as filters, brake pads, and windshield wiper blades, virtually everything else on the vehicle is covered for four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Tires and batteries may also be excluded from the basic warranty program, but usually have individual manufacturer’s warranties.
BMW also provides a comprehensive roadside assistance program that will rescue you from anywhere you happen to be stuck, and for any reason, even if you’re at fault. If you lock your keys in the car, run out of gas or get a flat, a call to the BMW toll free service number will quickly have someone on the way to help you out.
