Oh inflation, how we love you.
Price changes happen routinely from one model year to the next. Unfortunately it's rare for car prices to drop, but it does happen from time to time. But not in the case of BMW. Effective as of January 5, 2015, BMW has jacked up the price tags on several of its most popular models in the US. The lowest amount for a price increase was $250. That's manageable. But the highest increase was $1,000 for one particular model. The German automaker didn't provide any specific reason(s) for the increases or why one model's price went up more than others.
All of the models with price increases are listed below, and the new MSRP includes the $950 destination and handling fee. 428i Coupe $41,450 $41,700 428i xDrive Coupe $43,450 $43,700 435i Coupe $46,950 $47,200 435i xDrive Coupe $48,950 $49,200 X1 sDrive28i $31,850 $32,150 X1 xDrive28i $33,650 $33,950 X1 xDrive35i $39,750 $40,050 X5 sDrive35i $54,150 $54,850 X5 xDrive35i $56,450 $57,150 X5 xDrive35d $57,950 $58,650 X5 xDrive50i $70,050 $71,050
