0:12 Facts and Figures
BMW 530d xDrive Touring:
Six-cylinder in-line diesel engine, mild hybrid technology,
eight-speed Steptronic transmission, (BMW xDrive).
Capacity: 2,993 cc, output: 210 kW/286 hp at 4,000 rpm, max. torque: 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) at 1,500 – 2,500 rpm.
Acceleration [0 – 100 km/h (62 mph)]: 5.6 seconds, top speed: 250 km/h [155 mph]
Fuel consumption, combined:5.2 – 5.1 l/100 km [54.3 – 55.4 mpg imp],
The six-cylinder in-line engine powering the BMW 530d and BMW 530d xDrive employs two-stage turbocharging for the first time and combines it with a direct injection system whose piezo injectors produce maximum pressure of 2,700 bar. The variable turbine geometry used in the turbocharging system’s low-pressure stage lends itself to a continuous build-up of power. There is now 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of peak torque on tap between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm, an increase of 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) on the previous engine. The maximum output of the new diesel unit stands at 210 kW/286 hp, 15 kW/21 hp more than before.
The latest version of the automatic transmission features a weight-reduced design, a newly developed control system and an increased gear ratio spread. As a result, it is possible to achieve significant efficiency gains with reduced engine speeds, particularly when driving in higher gears. At the same time, the eight-speed Steptronic transmission now switches gears even more crisply – credit here to the optimised hydraulics control.
Intelligent all-wheel drive is available as an alternative to classical rear-wheel drive for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and new BMW 5 Series Touring.
The xDrive system’s rear-biased set-up, which is also notable in challenging driving situations, guarantees the type of driving experience for which BMW is renowned. When taking corners at speed, for example, just the right amount of extra drive force is transferred to the rear wheels to help the car turn into the bend with supreme accuracy.
The mild hybrid technology with 48V starter-generator, first introduced in the BMW 520d and BMW 520d xDrive models in autumn 2019, will now offer enhanced performance combined with lower fuel consumption and improved driving comfort in all four- and six-cylinder variants of the new BMW 5 Series.
The mild hybrid system helps to both lighten the combustion engine’s workload and boost its power, bringing a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions while sharpening performance.
The proven design principle of the double-wishbone front axle makes it possible to separate the wheel guidance and damper functions. As a result, the steering remains largely unaffected by disruptive forces caused by irregularities in the road surface. At the same time, supreme levels of comfort and poise are maintained even when the car is being pushed hard.
Like the front axle, the five-link rear axle stands out with its high structural rigidity and reduced weight. Meanwhile, the dual elastic bearings and the rear axle subframe’s high supporting base ensure effective decoupling of powertrain and suspension.
The new BMW 5 Series Touring continues to offer self-levelling air suspension at the rear axle as standard. This system makes allowance for the Touring model’s increased load-carrying potential compared with the Sedan and keeps the car at a constant ride height under all driving and load conditions while at the same time controlling vibrations.
The new BMW 5 Series models can once again be specified with a broad selection of proven chassis systems as an option such as M Sport suspension, Adaptive suspension, Adaptive M suspension, Adaptive M suspension Professional, which adds active roll stabilisation and Integral Active Steering to the electronically controlled dampers.
