We are pleased to inform you today of the addition of the brand new 518d saloon model that has arrived on our roads courtesy of the BMW brand. The 518d takes the perfect attributes of both comfort and power and combines them perfectly in our opinion. This vehicle is lined up as some ideal competition for the likes of the Audi A6 Ultra which is one of the most fuel efficient and economical models that the Audi brand has on offer right now. This latest addition to the 5 series line up comes with lower fuel emissions and a better consumption of fuel compared to other 5 series models.
With that being said referring to the fuel efficiency and power aspect of the car, we see that the 518d saloon comes fully fitted with a 2.0 litre,diesel engine which comes turbocharged. Combine this with the eight speed automatic transmission system that comes along with the car and we see a power development of 148 brake horse power and and a top speed of 134 miles per hour reached all round. With that being said, we see the car make the sprint from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 9.4 seconds. A set of paddles also come along with the car to make it easier to change gear.
There is a lot of added equipment that come along with the entry level model as standard and if your wondering about extra pieces of kit this could be the range for you. We see that the car is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity,a DAB digital radio,USB connectivity,parking sensors, a 6.5 inch touch screen,a leather trim and both automatic lights and wipers also come along with the car. The high end luxury version of the car also benefits from a multi functioning steering wheel and a built in sat nav. If you compare the comfort aspect of the vehicle to other companies on the market, we would compare the 518d saloon to models from the likes of the Lexus brand and Mercedes match up pretty well too.
The 518d saloon is officially on sale right now and can be purchased from your local BMW dealership. If you are wondering about how much a brand version of the car will set you back, expect to make the purchase for a total cost of £35,735.
