India-bound BMW 5 Series gets two new four-cylinder engine options

India-bound BMW 5 Series gets two new four-cylinder engine options

The latest-gen BMW 5 Series, which is headed for the Indian market, has just received two new four-cylinder engine options for the global markets. Both these options come from BMW’s modular engine family. 

A new entry level variant in the guise of 520i will come at the same time as the 525d, both developed from units featuring an all-aluminium construction. More crucially, these engines comply with the EU6 emissions standard.

The petrol 520i is a four-cylinder 1,998cc motor that employs BMW’s TwinScroll turbocharging and fully variable valve timing. It produces 184hp and 290Nm, allowing the car to accelerate from zero to 100kmph in 7.8 seconds. 

The four-cylinder 525d diesel engine, on the other hand, has an output of 231hp and maximum torque of 500Nm, resulting in a 6.6 second zero to 100kmph time and a 250kmph top speed. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and both are available in SE or M Sport specification.

BMW India will soon be introducing the all-new 5 Series in 530d guise. Showcased at a private unveiling in Mumbai for customers, the new model comes loaded with fresh design and feature upgrades from the 7 Series. It will compete against the likes of new Volvo S90 and the Audi A6.
