2.69m
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 3.07m

2. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
175Nm
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 400Nm

3. better fuel economy (city)

BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 6

17. Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
