A couple of days ago we shared with you the imminent arrival of the facelifted (LCI) G30-generation 2021 BMW 5 Series in Malaysia. Related to that, we've got word that buyers can expect a price hike too.

Here's your refresher on BMW's new extended warranty package: BMW cars sold here now come with a 2-year warranty (without free service) as standard, while the prior 5-year warranty and service package is now optional.

Foreshadowing things to come?

Note also that the 520i variant is missing from the line-up. Two possibilities remain: either BMW will introduce this variant later on, or it's not coming at all, instead making way for the 2021 G28 BMW 330Li (long-wheelbase).

The 520i Luxury

Our sources also tell us that the currently-on-sale 520i has been quite a slow-seller, likewise for its rival the Mercedes-Benz E200.

What to expect from the facelift?

Having made its debut last year, the facelifted rival to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class gains exterior changes such as revised bumpers and new daytime running light (DRL) patterns, giving the car an altogether cleaner look.
