After the North American Division of BMW has officially announced the prices for the new 640i Coupe and Convertible, the German automaker has moved to the family saloon, the 2012 four-cylinder 528i.
According to BMW, the new generation of the 528i is powered by a 2.0 liter, four-cylinder, single twin-scroll turbocharger engine, delivering 240 horsepower at 5.000 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque between 1.250 and 4.800 lb-ft, mated to the same transmission from the 640i, the eight-speed automatic Sport and Manual shift modes and Adaptive Transmission.
BMW says that the new 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo engine is offering more power and torque than the normally aspirated 3.0 liter inline-six from the 2011 528i, while averaging 22 and 32 mpg in the city and on the highway.
The new BMW 528i is coming with technologies like the Brake Energy Regeneration and Engine Auto Start/Stop and the driver can activate the ECO PRO mode which will adjust the engine map, heating, air conditioning and mirror/seat heating to minimize the fuel consumption.
Future customers of the 2012 BMW 528i will have to pay $46.700 for the base version while the xDrive will cost $49.000.
