BMW 535d xDrive absolutely loves to travel but current BMW 5 Series isn’t a new car, regardless of being launched with several updates for the 2014 model year. But the noticeable thing is the 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline six-cylinder engine found under the hood. It is acquired from the well-built version of larger X5 xDrive35d and is also expected in the future 740Ld xDrive.

 

Obviously, the engine for the 535d is more significant, that 3.0-litre engine generates 255 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque in this version, and it comes to full strength at just 1,500 rpm. In contrast with the 535d’s main contender, the Audi A6 TDI, also powered by a 3.0-litre turbodiesel engine generates a punch of 240 hp and 428 lb-ft. It’s all about those extra units of torque. For what it’s appealing, Audi estimates the A6 TDI hits 60 miles per hour in 5.5 seconds with the Quattro all-wheel drive, while the BMW 535d xDrive does it in 5.7 seconds, but actually, that’s splitting hairs.

 

When you drive this monster and push the throttle then acceleration is very fast. BMW has eight speed transmission and the shifts are very soft and silky as butter. The ZF eight-speed automatic transmission is a great combination for this 3.0-litre setup while running on the motorway at a stunning 75 miles per hour in eighth gear, and you won’t believe that the engine was only turning over at about 1,600 rpm. This is the point where you can seriously feel the power of a diesel engine.
