The BMW 520d Touring takes the spotlight in Europe

The BMW 520d Touring stands out as a better BMW wagon option compared to the top-of-the-list Sports Wagon. This is true especially if you live in Europe. While the M550d and M340i models are quite impressive, this new 5 Series model can become one of your best choices.

The new BMW 520d Touring offers both the Luxury Line and M Sport Package configurations. Its understated yet balanced design is more appealing than ever. Especially when it shows off sleek design lines matched with enough aggressiveness. This new 5 Series Touring is also an ideal family car. This is because it naturally gains a roomier interior and cargo space.

The BMW design team also remembers the interior. From its high-quality leather trims and options, this new 5 Series model can also gain sportier elements when integrated with the M Sport Package. One of the best features of this package will be the thick M Sports Steering Wheel.

The BMW 520d Touring continues to win the hearts of many even though of all these can be found in most 5 Series Touring models. This is because of its engine power. With a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder diesel, the 520d Touring produces 190 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque at 1750-2500 rpm.

Through an 8-speed automatic transmission, the power is transmitted to the wheels. The new 520d Touring can also reach a top speed of 140 mph or 225 km/h and weighs a claimed 1855 kg at the kerb. However, it’s the fuel consumption that makes everyone more impressed with the 520d Touring.

The recent test showed 7 l/100 km or over 33.6 mpg in the US and 40.3 mpg in the UK. Expect better numbers as well when you ride this 5 Series model outside the city limits. For instance, a fuel consumption of 5 l/100 km is the record while on the highway and while keeping it steady at 50 mph average speed. This will be 47 mph in the US and 56.4 mpg in the UK. Lastly, at an average speed of 75 mph, an average of 5.8 l/100 was shown on the on-board computer.

With a full tank of diesel, you can do a very long highway cruising and at the top of the speed limit. This also means that the 520d Touring has a greater chance to remain as the top favorite, especially in Europe. It definitely wins the hearts of those who always do long trips.
