Ever since its official announcement on the market last year, the all-new 2017 BMW 5-Series has been long-previewed and discussed in hundreds of media galleries and videos, with auto magazines all around the world driving all its variants in different tests.
Now, BMW 530d, which is the range`s one of the most powerful and appreciated diesel variant is popping-up into the spotlights, the model being recently announced in the United Kingdom with the M Sport Package. It costs at least £43,835.
For that money you get plenty of M Performance parts at the exterior as well as inside the cabin. Visually, the model stands out from the crowd with the M mods, like front apron with wider air intakes, new trims for the side skirts, rear diffuser with M exhaust system with two rectangular tailpipes, adding as well a wide choice of 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels.
The car has also received the M Sport Suspension system, which lowers its ride height for increased stance and driving characteristics. The interior is also highlighted by the new sports seats, M Sport leather steering wheel, aluminum trims and so on.
The car`s main highlight remains the engine department, where the G30 530d xDrive variant is proud to sport a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo diesel, with pure 265 horsepower and impressive 620 Nm of torque. This indicates a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds, at a top speed of 250 km/h. The diesel is an excellent burner, managing a mixed 47 mpg and CO2 emissions of just 132 g/km.
