The German automaker, Mercedes-Benz, has been known for its luxury vehicles, buses, trucks, and coaches.

It's considered the cheapest model in the lineup and the most economical.

The new BMW series is equipped with a 520d four-cylinder turbodiesel which is good for up to 65.7 mpg and 114g/km of CO2. The car would be a 4x4 xDrive version and will cost £41,025.

When it comes to powertrain, the new model produces a 190 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.6 seconds while getting around 60 mph. Those are already fair stellar efficiency numbers.

For the interior, BMW brought the 7 Series levels of luxury and design into the new model without sacrificing much. The car's buttons are converted to plastic instead of metal, and not all surface is covered with leather.

The car is also designed to have a fantastic cabin, wonderful build quality, and a superb technology. It rides and handles well as long as equipped with the optional adaptive dampers, which is apparently fitted in most modern BMW cars.

Other features are also impressive. It includes a 10.3-inch iDrive touchscreen, which is controllable by a standard iDrive controller, and an option for autonomous driving aids and remote parking capability.

A new full-color head up display is 70 percent bigger and shows information from traffic signs and navigation prompts to telephone info and music tracks. Other astonishing features of the all new BMW 520d xDrive M Sport will include a stereo camera, which every time combined with radar and ultrasound sensor, gives the car with new levels of active safety and autonomy. Overall, there no chance finding anything to dislike about this new car.
