BMW announces four cylinder 7-series model

BMW has increased its Chauffeur programme offerings by launching a 725Ld, it’s cleanest, most efficient diesel 7-Series to date.

The 2.0-litre 725d and 725Ld Saloons, which are mated to an eight-speed Steptronic automatic gearbox, produce 231hp, resulting in a zero to 62mph time of 6.9 seconds (7 seconds in the case of the 725Ld) and a top speed of 152mph.

Alongside punchy performance, the 725 promises to return more than 60mpg and emissions of just over 120g/km.

Starting from £61,300 OTR the new BMW 725d and 725Ld Saloon will be available on the manufacturers chauffeur programme which features three-year unlimited mileage warranty, 24/7 emergency service and BMW Fast Lane Service, which ensures service and maintenance tasks are completed within 90 minutes.
