Complete details in the press release below:

BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Saloon
The BMW 5 Series has proved to be one of the most successful cars in history with nearly 6,000,000 models sold over the last four decades. In the process it has defined the executive saloon sector, offering sporty handling and performance combined with elegance and luxury.

Now in its sixth iteration, the BMW 5 Series has upped the ante again by being offered with a class-leading diesel engine that records some impressive emissions and fuel consumption figures, while still being able to offer a driver the behind-the-wheel experience you would expect from the marque.

Not only was the new BMW 5 Series Saloon setting new ground in the sector when it launched in 2010 by being the first to feature Auto Start-Stop, an eight-speed automatic transmission and a double-wishbone front suspension, but it is now also capable of a sub 120g/km figure and fuel consumption figure of 62.8mpg.

The BMW Z4 sDrive20i and BMW sDrive28i

There might be 80 years separating them but BMW’s first roadster was also a four-cylinder affair – albeit it with slightly less horsepower, unrecorded emissions and without the sheer driving dynamics of modern car that now presents itself. But the 3/15 PA Wartburg Roadster of 1930 was memorable for some of the design language it started for BMW – namely a setback glasshouse, front engine rear-wheel-drive configuration with the two seats positioned close to the rear axle.

The Wartburg Roadster was named after the castle that towered over the company’s Eisenach plant and was an open two-seater featuring a folding windscreen, low doors and an 18bhp 748 cc engine. By comparison the latest roadster from BMW comes with a choice of four petrol engine variants with the new sDrive20i and sDrive28i heralding a new entry-level to two-seat sports car ownership of BMWs for some.

The BMW 6 Series Coupé
Now in its third generation, the new BMW 6 Series Coupé takes the luxury 2+2 concept a step further by matching enhanced comfort and elegant design with sporting performance on a even higher level. The BMW 6 Series Coupé features a sweeping coupé roofline while the long bonnet, short over-hangs, set-back passenger compartment with Hofmeister kink, long wheelbase and flat waistline embody the typical proportions of a BMW coupé more than any other model.

Two exceptional BMW turbocharged petrol engines and a twin turbocharged diesel powerplant, a newly developed chassis and a host of class-leading driver assistance technology ensure that the new BMW 6 Series Coupé is full of substance, while interior space and comfort have been enhanced.

The BMW 1 Series
The all-new, second generation BMW 1 Series occupies a distinctive niche within its segment, offering a unique and rewarding combination of agile, precise handling, improved aesthetics and innovative technology. It remains the only rear-wheel drive car in its class and, with a range of advanced TwinPower petrol and diesel engines, offers a sporty but fuel-efficient proposition boosted by BMW’s EfficientDynamics technologies fitted as standard.

The previous generation BMW 1 Series has had enormous success selling more than 2.2 million units globally, as well as being the first car in the premium compact segment.

The elegant and dynamic styling of the new BMW 1 Series clothes a car that’s 83mm longer, 14mm wider and 30mm longer in the wheelbase than its predecessor. These dimensions create a car with increased cabin dimensions and, thus, greater interior comfort.

The new BMW 1 Series goes on sale in the UK on 17 September 2011, with a choice of three diesel and two petrol engines.  Prices start at £19,375 otr for a BMW 116i ES.
