The new BMW 5 Series is by far the cleanest 5 Series yet, BMW claim the new 5 Series will go 10% further than any of its main competitors when it comes to miles per gallon (mpg). BMW had the UK business sector in there thoughts when building the new 520d Efficient Dynamics saloon which returns a healthy 62.8mpg while producing only 119g/km of CO2 emissions, which puts the new BMW 520d in a kind taxation band of just 13% which will surely appeal to most business users and BMW lease car drivers. But dont think that the improvements to the mpg and CO2 emissions has had an effect on the power of the new BMW 520d as the 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine still produces the same184bhp and 380Nm of torque which propels the BMW 520d to 0-62mph in a time of 8.2 seconds.
BMW have pulled out all the stops to achieve the new 62.8mpg figure as they have fitted an array of new fuel saving features and tech. The new BMW features more aerodynamic streamlined alloy wheels with low resistance tyres, BMWs auto Stop Start system, optimum gearshift indication, brake energy regeneration system and BMW active aerodynamics. BMW have also improved the gear ratio of the BMW 520d Efficient Dynamics Saloon to help reduce engine revs while at higher speeds.
A new mode called ECO-PRO helps promote more comfortable and economical driving while at lower speeds, this is achieved by adjusting the mapping of the 5 Series 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine. The throttle sensitivity has also been adjusted along with the automatic gearshift points, the amount of power consumed by electrical ancillaries including climate control and heated seats have also been adjusted to help save fuel.
