Bmw 2014 5 Series Diesel Review
- Bmw Forum: Reviews, Problems, Complaints, Recalls
Dynamic ability, comfort, efficiency, aesthetic allure and a profusion of innovations designed to enhance driving pleasure – the BMW 5 Series contains all the signature ingredients of a best-selling model at the premium end of the executive segment. Indeed, consistently rising sales figures have sealed its position as the global leader in its class. Over one million units of the BMW 5 Series Sedan, BMW 5 Series Touring and BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo – whose luxurious character has earned it a unique status in the segment – have been sold worldwide since the launch of the current generation. And now another new chapter in this impressive success story is poised to begin. Precise modifications to the cars’ design, new engine variants and innovative additions to the range of available equipment as well as BMW ConnectedDrive technology all raise the appeal of the BMW 5 Series model family a notch higher still.
The 535d comes equipped with a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder BMW Advanced Diesel engine that develops 255 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque from 1,500 to 3,000 rpm (these figures are preliminary; BMW will release final figures closer to the model launch). While fuel economy figures have not yet been released, the European 530d (which the U.S. 535d is equivalent to) has a combined EU fuel economy rating that is roughly 33% better than the gasoline-powered 535i (5.9 l/100 km or 40 mpg versus 8.3 l/100 km or 28.3 mpg).
