The entry level model in the new BMW 5 Series is the 518d diesel. With a highly efficient 2.0 Litre four-cylinder diesel engine, the 518d compares well with more powerful models in terms of torque and fuel consumption. The “TwinPower” turbocharged diesel engine uses BMW’s modular design, and a high-pressure common rail injection system which gives a more efficient combustion cycle than previous generations. Plus, the intelligent throttling system in the 518d diesel is designed to reduce the power needed to drive the pump at lower loads, resulting in higher efficiency and decreased emissions. In fact the CO2 emissions for the 518d range between 114 and 124g/km, depending on whether you choose the executive Saloon or the slightly heavier Touring estate chassis.
Not only is the 2018 BMW 518d remarkably efficient, but its 148hp engine, with acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in around 1.6 seconds means that this model is the ideal choice for those looking for a comfortable, efficient executive car, which is also fun to drive and has a luxurious feel for both driver and passengers.
The 2018 BMW 518d can be combined with either SE, Luxury or M Sport trims, depending on individual drivers’ preferences, and finished with a selection of optional design and technology packages. All specifications include a high level of elegance, with premium quality materials used throughout the model range. As the most affordable model in the 5 Series range, the 518d SE Saloon has a recommended OTR price of around £30,800, while the Touring model is around £1,200 more with the same specification.
