High performance comes at a price – usually a pretty steep one in terms of economy. But if you opt for one of these three performance diesel saloons, rather than a petrol four-door, then you can enjoy driving fast without worrying too much about the fuel bills.
BMW 330d M Sport Saloon ( #BMW-E90 ) ( 2008 to 2012 ) / #BMW-330d-M-Sport-Saloon-E90 / #BMW-330d-E90
Fifteen grand will buy you a mint-condition 2010 model with a relatively low 70,000 miles on the clock. Many pack a good deal of optional extras, with goodies like full leather upholstery and Professional sat nav and 18- or even 19-inch alloys. And despite the 245hp performance on tap, the combined fuel economy figure is still 45.6 mpg.
BMW 535d M Sport ( #BMW-E60 ) ( #2007 to #2010 ) / #BMW-535d-M-Sport-E60 / #BMW-535d-E60 /
A #BMW-3-Series not quite big enough? Then try a #BMW-535d-M-Sport instead. The performance is every bit as good – in spite of the car’s larger mass – and our £15,000 will stretch to a #2008 model with just 65k miles on the clock. Being an M Sport 5 Series the standard spec is plush, whilst long journeys can see you achieve over 40mpg.
THE #Alpina-D3 Bi-Turbo (E90) (2008 to 2013) / #Alpina-D3-Bi-Turbo / #Alpina-D3-Bi-Turbo-E90
Those seeking something a bit more exclusive should hunt out the rare #Alpina D3 B-Turbo Saloon. A #2011 model is within range, with a typical 75,000 miles and a full #BMW-Alpina history. All cars are very well appointed and the twin-turbo diesel delivers potent acceleration (0-62mph in just 7.2 seconds), 50.4mpg economy and just 159g/km of CO².Stream item published successfully.
