Unlike the US citizens who favor petrol burners for their US-bound models, in Europe, people are crazy about the diesel models, especially since because they are more fuel-efficient and come with plenty of new gizmos in terms of drvivign dynamics.
In the UK for instance, BMW has thought very useful to introduce the 520d SE EfficientDynamics model, priced from at least £36,025 and coming with more exquisite features than the standard varaint. The UK customers also crazy about the diesels from the all-new 5-Series.
At the exterior, the car`s main highlights refer to the Active Air Stream Kidney Grille system which allows more variable control of the cooling air for the brakes, air conditioning and engine.
Under the hood, the 2017 BMW 520d SE EfficientDaynamics packs a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine, with 190 horsepower, available at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm of torque, available at as low as 1,750 rpm. The duel consumption is also fantastic, only 72.4 mpg/3.9 liter per 100 km), with the CO2 emissions also standing at 102 g/km.
The diesel is also fast, allowing an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds, achieved also thanks to a high-performance ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.
The new 520d SE EfficientDaynamics also comes with the ECO Pro mode with Proactive Driving Assistant, which is activated via the Drive Performance Control switch. It is connected to the car`s Professional Navigation system and keeps track of the braking system and other important features of the car.
