The BMW 520d is scheduled to be available as of the third quarter of 2010. The fuel consumption values are therefore preliminary and are not yet official.
All petrol engines meet the EU5 emissions standard. When combined with BluePerformance, the BMW 530d meets the EU6 emissions standard. Fuel consumption is determined in accordance with the ECE driving cycle (93/116/EG) made up of approximately one third urban traffic and two thirds extra-urban driving (based on the distance covered). CO2 emissions are measured in addition to fuel consumption as such. Fuel consumption levels are calculated based on vehicles with standard equipment. Special equipment (e.g. wider tyres) can have a significant impact on fuel consumption and driving performance levels.
