The 5 Series saloon is having its engine line-up bolstered with the arrival of two four-cylinder units from BMW’s modular engine family.
A new entry level car – the 520i – is being launched, together with a new 525d model. Both engines have been developed from units featuring an extremely lightweight, thermodynamically-optimised, all-aluminium construction.
Thanks to TwinPower Turbo technology, they combine maximum power with impressive efficiency, and comply with the EU6 emissions standard.
The petrol 520i is a four-cylinder 1,998cc powerplant that produces 184hp and 290Nm, enabling a 0-62mph time of 7.8secs, a top speed of 146mph, official economy of 52.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 124g/km.
The four-cylinder BMW 525d diesel engine produces 231hp and 500Nm of torque. This can push the car to 60mph in 6.6secs and on to a top speed of 155mph. Fuel consumption comes in at a respectable 64.2mpg, resulting in CO2 emissions of just 116g/km.
The new 2017 BMW 5 Series Touring upholds a long tradition of being a perfect estate car for the premium car buyer who wants it all. Hot on the heels of the new 5 Series saloon, it’ll be in showrooms this June, with four engine options initially, and more to follow.
