The elegant and efficient BMW 520i is the entry level petrol model in the new 2021 BMW Series 5 range of Saloons and Touring estates. With a 2.0 Litre, turbocharged four cylinder petrol engine, the 520i takes all of the most innovative petrol technology and uses it to superb effect. It effortlessly delivers up to 184 brake horsepower, with fuel consumption in the mid-forties average on the latest WLTP cycle which is highly respectable, given the model’s generous size and performance. For this latest facelift, new Mild Hybrid Technology has been incorporated (hence the letters MHT in the description) which uses a 48 volt combines starter motor generator and a battery to store electrical power, which can then be used to boost the cars performance at low revs when pulling away in traffic, meaning less revs are needed to get going, which can save you between 5 and 10% of fuel compared to the previous non-hybrid version.
Thanks to the inclusion of BMW’s EfficientDynamics set of technologies, the efficiency of the 520i is also high in comparison with the Audi A6 and Mercedes E-Class. These technologies include the Start/Stop system, which enables the engine to automatically cut out when the car is brought to a standstill and the gearshift placed in neutral, and restart when the clutch pedal is depressed. Included in all modern BMW vehicles, this system saves a great deal of petrol over the lifetime of the car, and contributes to the BMW 5 Series’ surprisingly low running costs. Other energy saving innovations included in the 520i are the Brake Energy Regeneration system, and Active Aerodynamics.
With a streamlined, visually striking appearance, and a luxurious comfortable interior, the 2021 BMW 520i petrol model is designed to please in every aspect, whether you choose the SE or M Sport specification. And with a recommended OTR price starting at around £39,000 this is an attractive and enjoyable option as either a comfortable family saloon, or an executive company car.
