Yes, you read correctly. BMW is offering the new the 725d under the 7-Series in 2017! It is designed to be sold in emerging markets where the import duties and the road taxes are too high for the higher displacement engines. However, the BMW 725d doesn’t use a 2.5-lt diesel engine. It is powered by a 2-lt diesel engine. BMW just made a minor adjustment to the branding. Where did I see the BMW 725d? On BMW’s Turkish distributor’s website.
For many people, the BMW 725d will remind them of the early 1990s. There used to be 7-Series branded as a 725d, and I still can remember that car very clearly. When I saw the 725d on the price list, it took me back to the 1990s.
Anyway, it is basically the same car with impressive performance figures and a tiny engine. Is it worth buying? If you are facing heavy taxes on the cars where you live, the 725d will be perfect for you. You can spec up the car with the latest gadgets and the performance will never disappoint you.
BMW 725d is powered by a 2-lt diesel engine with 231HP power and 4,4-lt fuel consumption.
