BMW has both superior diesel technology and vehicles that deliver excellent performance with small-level consumption. Four diesel models are currently available from BMW, powered by a TwinPower Turbo engine that is lightweight, powerful and efficient. These models range from engine horsepower at either 180 or 255 and torque from either 280 or 413 lb-ft, depending on the type.

BMW Diesel Engines
BMW EfficientDynamics technology has brought forth their exceptional diesel engines, delivering both low consumption with high performance. These aren’t lesser engines than their gasoline counterparts, especially thanks to the BMW Intelligent xDrive® All-Wheel Drive that doesn’t limit where you can take your diesel BMW. To get this low consumption, its turbo system performs like a bigger aspirating engine, while its light aluminum build promotes efficient funnelling of its exhaust. These engines foster the same characteristics of BMWs, performing to a high level and at a quiet volume, but with diesel power.
BMW Diesel’s Future in Canada
BMW currently only offers four diesel models in Canada, the BMW 328d xDrive Sedan, BMW 328d xDrive Touring, BMW 540d xDrive Sedan and BMW X5 xDrive35d. With only the four BMW diesel models available in Canada, the future of BMW models is tenuous. It hasn’t been revealed yet if the new BMW X5 will get a diesel option in Canada. It’s no secret that diesel continuously falls behind the gasoline variants, and remains vastly less popular, and with drivers looking to new energy means and technologies, diesel as we know it may not be a consistent focus of BMW moving forward. Time will tell, but for all of you diesel aficionados out there, the current lineup of BMW diesel performance models is your best bet.
