BMW 520d Touring

The BMW F10 5 Series 520d variant has been updated with the new B47D20 2.0 litre turbodiesel engine, which brings power up to 190 hp at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm at 1,750 to 2,500 rpm, an increase of six hp and 20 Nm over the outgoing N47D20 engine.

The B47D20 is already available in Malaysia – it made its debut in the F25 BMW X3 facelift that was launched recently. The engine features an aluminium crankcase with thermally-joined cylinder liners (to reduce internal friction) and integrated balancer shafts, a turbocharger with variable intake geometry as well as an improved 2,000 bar common-rail direct-injection system.

BMW also claims that the starting characteristic of the engine has been improved, which is important for comfort when used with the Auto Start-Stop function. The entry-level 518d diesel also gets the new engine – in the 18d tune, the engine does 150 hp and 360 Nm.
