BMW Canada introduces new 525i
Whitby, Ontario – The new entry-level 5 Series, the $58,200 525i, will be available at BMW retailers in April, announced BMW Canada. Featuring an all-new inline six-cylinder engine, the 525i can also be optioned with Active Steering, which won “Best New Technology” from the Automobile Journalists of Canada (AJAC) in 2004.
The 525i’s new engine contains a magnesium crankcase and Valvetronic engine technology for improved efficiency and dynamics. Through the use of magnesium and aluminum, this engine is the lightest production six-cylinder in its class, weighing 57 per cent of a comparable iron block.
