Even though the new engines will consume less fuel, BMW officials assure us that the performance factor will not be affected and all the new models comply with the EU6 exhaust gas standard.

First up, all the new diesel engines will be fitted with the nitrogen oxide-reducing BMW BluePerformance technology as standard. In addition, standard features of the EfficientDynamics edition models will be included on all cars (features like ECO PRO mode, Optimum Shift Indicator, Auto Start-Stop function).

One new model will be the BMW 518d. This car will be the entry level diesel variant, fitted with a 2-liter 4-cylinder engine that's producing 143 HP and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. This engine will also be available for the Touring version. Reportedly, the fuel consumption for the 518d will be of 4.5 l/100km (52 mpg).

The 520d model will receive the xDrive system starting with the LCI version for both the Sedan and the Touring variants. Furthermore, the GT 5er will also receive the all-wheel-drive system on 5 of the engine variants.

The top of the range 5er, will have a new, upgraded V8 under the bonnet, producing 450 HP and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft) of torque. Also, the M550d xDrive Sedan and Touring will be available for those of you that really enjoy the torque of a powerful diesel.
