BMW 3 Series

BMW’s sole diesel offering throughout its sixth generation was the 328d, sold between 2012-2018 in four-door coupe and five-door wagon variants. The 2018 BMW 328d uses a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine, generating 180 hp and 280 lb. ft. of torque. The previous generation model, marketed as the BMW 335d, featured a 3.0L twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder diesel engine capable of 265 hp and 425 lb. ft. of torque.

BMW 5 Series

BMW’s midsize executive sedan came equipped with several diesel engines throughout its life. Available from 2011-2016, the BMW 535d borrows the 335d’s 3.0L twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder diesel engine. With slightly less power at 255 hp, the 535d makes up for the deficit with eight more lb. ft. of torque, resulting in a total 433 lb. ft. of torque. The BMW 535d gave way to the 540d for 2018, this time rated at 261 hp and 457 lb. ft. of torque. Both 5 Series diesels come well-equipped with a generous level of standard features, including leather upholstery.


If you’re looking for a diesel powered version of BMW’s compact crossover SUV, you’ll find it in the form of the X3 xDrive28d. Offered from 2015-2017, the BMW X3 xDrive28d features a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine. Power ratings are similar to the BMW 328d, with 180 hp and 280 lb. ft. of torque on tap.


BMW’s midsize crossover SUV offering also comes with a diesel option in the form of the xDrive35d. Made available from 2014-2018, the X5 xDrive35d featured the same 3.0L twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder diesel engine as the 335d and 535d, this time rated at 255 hp and 413 lb. ft. of torque.
