2017 is undeniably a very busy year for BMW. After introducing the new 4-Series, the German automaker has just released several new updates. In relation to this, BMW is also introducing the new 520d (G30) EfficientDynamics Edition, the company’s most eco-friendly 2.0 litre diesel engine.
BMW’s new 520d Efficient Dynamics has a combined fuel consumption of 73.4 miles per gallon and as low as 102 g/km C02 emissions. The engine consists of a turbocharger placed on antifriction bearings along with the new improved common rail injection, map controller oil pump and high pressure gas recirculation system. Mated to a standard 8-speed automatic transmission, the 520d EfficientDynamics can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in only 7.5 seconds.
BMW’s new engine technology is also more aerodynamic efficient than any other engines. The 520d Efficient Dynamics delivers bigger fuel savings while using BMW’s BluePerformance technology all at the same time. Aside from the new filter, the Blue Performance system comes with a NOX storage catalyst, oxidation catalyst and AdBlue injection to help the engine emit less nitrogen oxide.
In other news, BMW is offering their newly updated On-Street Parking info service in three more cities in Germany. This service used to help commuters find a parking space along Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin and Munich. With the new update, commuters from Hanover, Bremen and Nuremberg will find it more convenient to park their vehicles anywhere in the city. This technology is included in the company’s ConnectedDrive (Real Time Traffic information service).
ConnectedDrive also features a smart phone holder, a telephony with wireless charging and navigation. Together with the new Professional infotainment system, the On-Street Parking service will be offered in many of BMW’s upcoming models.
The new infotainment system is already introduced in the latest 5-Series (G30) which will be followed later on with BMW’s 6-Series and 7-Series lineups. In addition to this, BMW’s entry level will also be receiving a few more driver assistance systems, which includes the new Wrong Way driving alert, Cross Traffic alert, Active Assist Collision Avoidance and the Lane Change Assistant technology. Last but certainly not the least, the entire 6-Series lineup will be equipped with new features including a new set of 20-inch dual tone alloy wheels plus an option to avail the latest Sonic Speed Blue metallic body paint.
Best of all, BMW will be offering a full-digital instrument panel display both for the 4-Series and 3-Series models. For those who could still recall, this optional feature was initially introduced in BMW’s i8 plug-in hybrid so this one’s really worth checking out!
