BMW Launches 320d Touring Efficient Dynamics Edition
So, let’s get tot the point and see what BMW has prepared for eco fans: the station wagon is powered by a 2.0 liter diesel powerplant that delivers 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque, while returning a fuel efficiency of 4.3 liters per 100 km and emitting 115 grams of CO2 per km. The saloon version of the car offers an even higher efficiency of 4.1 liters per 100 km, emitting 109 grams of CO2 per km.
Getting to the performance part, we have to tell you that the Touring plays the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) game in 8.3 seconds and offers a top speed of 223 km/h (138.5 mph).
To achieve this, the German engineers have tweaked the engine, modified the gear ratios, played with the chassis, added special aero-rims that use a turbine design that helped them reduce the vehicle’s Touring’s drag coefficient to 0.275.
The EfficientDynamics badge also brings a Brake Energy Regeneration system, an Auto Start-Stop function, a gear shift indicator, an active air intake flap control, a decoupling facility for the aircon compressor, as well as a diesel particulate filter.
The new BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Touring Edition will be available starting from spring next year.
“In combination with a longer final drive ratio, the efficiency-enhanced engine design of the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Edition makes for a significant reduction in engine speeds across all road speed ranges. And even in combination with this load point shift which benefits fuel consumption and emissions, the spontaneity and running smoothness characteristic of BMW diesel engines is fully retained. The increase in comfort thus achieved encourages the driver to use a higher gear more frequently or indeed avoid shifting down altogether,” explained the press release
