BMW is launching more tax-busting diesels this month. The 2.0-litre has been cleaned up to meet EuroIV compliance, saving company car buyers from the three per cent diesel surcharge.

The arrival of these cleaner engines will save 3-series buyers paying high-rate income tax from £235 on a 320td Compact up to £290 on a 320Cd SE Coupé. EuroIV compliance will soon reach more models throughout the range. The 530d, 330d and forthcoming 525d will also beat the taxman in March 2004.

In addition to the three per cent savings, BMW is still offering a free service and maintenance package for five years or 60,000 miles on all new 3-series diesels.

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
