Car of the day – 2011 BMW 520D F10 1995 cc Straight 4 184 hp 1920×1080 HD

The 2011 BMW 520d Efficient Dynamics is running by a 2.0-liter turbo diesel straight 4 engine, developed by a total of 184 horse power (135 kW) and a peak torque of 280 lbs-ft (380 Nm). It has a fuel economy of 62.8 mpg and carbon dioxide emissions of 119g/km. This BMW can speed up and go to 0-100 km/h or ~0-60 mph in 8.2 seconds. This vehicle standing with 17-inch alloys as standard the ride quality.

The engine is combined with standard Auto Start-Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration, Optimum Gearshift Indicator, and Active Aerodynamics. Another prepossessing feature is BMW’s new ECO-PRO Mode. A driver-activated switch promotes economical and comfortable driving at low speeds by adjusting the engine mapping, throttle sensitivity, automatic gearshift points, where applicable, and the power consumed by electrical ancillaries including climate control and heated seats. This is a main feature that’s why people love this vehicle.

Inside this 5 series BMW we can see a superior interior in this car. Many buyers in this segment may prefer a more relaxed approached, however, and it does suit the nature of this particular car. Eco special or not, though, you won’t be missing out on any creature comforts. It includes features like Electric Leather, Bluetooth, dual-zone climate controls and front and rear parking sensors make this car exclusive. This car also has the internet connectivity.

We can see a multifunction steering wheel with some extra options here. This steering helps to answer mobile calls without touching the dashboard buttons. There is no automatic option for the 520d ED (yet) – though eight-speed and ‘Sport’ units are available right across the rest of the range – autos are usually less efficient than manual gearboxes after all.

This 2011 BMW is at its best in the optimized ECO-PRO setting. You can use these settings every time when you are riding .The 520d ED still feels perfectly gracious to drive, and you get a greater sense of involvement than in the features of Audi, certainly. But there’s less accuracy in the steering and more body movements.

Safety equipment, as with all new 5 Series, includes six airbags, highly comprehensive stability control and run-flat tyres as standard. Optional upgrades include adaptive headlights, high-beam assist, blindspot monitors and night vision.

The BMW 520d Efficient Dynamics Saloon feels like less of a leap than the original 320d Efficient Dynamics, but it still has many commendable features. We love the refinement that allows you to use such low revs, and it is a relaxing car to drive.

Other current 5 Series attributes mean it’s comfortable and spacious, too, and although the difference between the ED and the regular 520d is apparently slight, the modest price difference compared to the tax savings means it should make plenty of business users very happy.

As for the last words, it’s a very economical car. Fuel economy is very good. Nice looking exterior and interior and at the same time it’s priced pretty well.
