BMW 535d Saloon with 299hp

2nd July 2010 Print

The fourth and most powerful diesel version of the new BMW 5 Series – the 299hp 535d Saloon - will go on sale in September. BMW twin turbocharger and common rail direct injection technology helps make this 3.0-litre straight-six all-aluminium engine one of the world’s most powerful six-cylinder diesel unit. Its 299hp available at 4,400rpm while maximum torque is 600Nm is available from 1,750rpm.

A smaller turbocharger operating just above idling speed gives the BMW 535d instant surge, while a larger turbo is activated at higher speeds, supplying additional power for maximum performance. Equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the new BMW 535d Saloon will accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 5.7 seconds.

But along with its dynamic capability comes efficiency. Thanks to the latest generation common rail system operating at a maximum pressure of 2,000 bar and guaranteeing a particularly accurate supply of fuel, the BMW 535d achieves an astonishing average combined fuel consumption of 46.3mpg.
