BMW Introduces the 5 Series Diesel
The BMW 5 Series diesel has finally made it to the United States, and BMW's making some noise with three short commercials. Each is under twenty seconds in length, but BMW manages to cleverly showcase the new sedan's capabilities. Want to know which car has better torque out of the new 5 Series Diesel and a Porsche? The first video showcases the (obvious) answer. The new model delivers the performance you have come to expect from the luxury brand, but without the problems that older diesel models had, and proves that the BMW can out-accelerate a sandbagged Porsche 911. As for the other two? This new diesel vehicle offers 413 lb.-ft. of torque, and even has managed to achieve 38 mpg highway. Take a look at the videos below to see how the new BMW 5 Series Diesel stacks up against the competition, as well as see some great burnouts. We just have one question. Is all that smoke from the tires? Source: BMW via YouTube
