New-generation common-rail technology injects precisely-measured doses of fuel into the combustion chamber under a pressure of 1,600 bar, extracting maximum efficiency and enabling even smoother running. The four-cylinder diesel power unit needs less than 5 litres of fuel per 100 km, and reaches its maximum engine speed at just 1,750 rpm. Yet it’s responsive enough to propel the BMW 320d from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.9 seconds.
Combined fuel consumption: 4.7 to 5.4 l/100 km
CO2 emissions: 123 to 144 g/km
