When it comes to high performance, high standards and high quality driving experience, the new BMW 540i petrol model tops the leader board. With its TwinPower Turbo 3.0 litre engine, along with direct High Precision Injection and Valvetronic variable valve control, the 540i effortlessly delivers up to 340 brake horsepower across a wide rpm range, making it the most powerful 5 series before you get to the M5 supersaloon.
Whether you choose the streamlined four-door Saloon, or the more athletic Touring Estate model, your new 540i will provide you with a dynamic and exciting, yet gloriously comfortable ride. Both the SE and M Sport specifications include comfortable Dakota leather seats, 18 inch light alloy wheels, and a host of technological features designed to make every journey as enjoyable and convenient as possible.
It might surprise you to learn that even though the 550i’s 3 Litre engine can accelerate from 0 to 60mph in an astounding 4.8 seconds, it still remains incredibly efficient, with fuel consumption just under 40mpg, and CO2 emissions estimated from 164g/km. Also, like every model in the new BMW 5 Series, the 540i petrol engine meets the EU6 emission norm, and also has a reassuringly top rating in the Euro NCAP safety tests.
The 540i clearly delivers top performance, and a thrilling drive, yet it is still comfortable and practical enough to fit into the executive saloon class, and offers a more affordable alternative to the 5 Series flagship M5 model. The Saloon in SE spec is available from around £50,000 list price.
