BMW has just expanded the 5-Series line-up with the addition of a new model called the 520d EfficientDynamics. This new model sets a new benchmark for efficiency and driving pleasure in its class. On the British market, the 520d will be priced at £30,435 - or about $49,000 at the current exchange rates.

The BMW 520d EfficientDynamics is powered by a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine that develops a total of 184 HP and a peak torque of 280 lbs-ft. It has a fuel economy of 62.8 mpg and carbon dioxide emissions of 119g/km, but can still get up and go to 60 mph in 8.2 seconds.

The engine will be combined with standard Auto Start-Stop, Optimum Gearshift Indicator, Brake Energy Regeneration, and Active Aerodynamics. Another impressive 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 amount of power consumed by electrical ancillaries including climate control and heated seats.

Efficient dynamic is one of the most glamorous and stunning vehicles that I saw here in BMW, and I’m truly fascinated on it. I’m just a little curious on what will be its interior look like?

It looks very decent on its platform design and even on its body paint. Anyway, I have to agree that its wheel is perfect on it even its turbodiesel engine. Did they already put it on the market?

Look at its wheels! It looks so cool on this vehicle! smiley Well, that’s the first thing that I noticed on this 520d and even the exclusivity and very neat appearance. However, I’m not satisfied with its engine output.

I love this!but, as with the teasers from Volvo, VW and Mini, when I actually see it for sale (in America) I’ll believe it. It’s at the top of my wish list, that’s for sure.

I don’t really like the car, though you can’t say any negative about the brand and its engine. I just not my type of standard looking very formal car. Still prepare for more young looking car.

The platform design is simple but very appealing, but I’m still looking forward for other updated news about this one.

Hmm, it seems that BMW is really making good use of their EfficientDynamics concept. Well, that one is really a good news, since this is quite a promising platform.
