BMW Australia has increased the asking price for most of its models.
These models include the 1 Series hatchback, certain 2 Series two-door coupes, the M3 high-performance sedan, the 4 Series and M4 coupe and convertible, 4 Series Gran Coupe four-door coupe, certain 5 Series and M5 sedans, the Z4 sports car, certain X1 small SUVs, certain X3 and X4 medium SUVs, X5 and X6 large SUVs, and the X7 upper large SUV.
All the models affected by this price rise have had their before on-road asking price increased by between $1000 and $10,000, depending on the model and variant.
BMW isn’t alone raising the prices on the majority of its range. Audi recently upped the prices on most of its models, and Mercedes-Benz has done similar in the past.
It’s worth noting a number of BMW vehicles are temporary missing features due to production and semiconductor shortages.
The lower $1000 price rise has generally been applied to the more affordable entry-level models such as the 1 Series, X1 and X3.
The 2022 BMW 1 Series range now starts at $48,900 before on-road costs for the entry-level 118i, and extends to $71,900 before on-road costs for the high-performance M135i xDrive.
