BMW.com best describes the diesel engine:
The diesel engine transforms the chemical energy contained in diesel into mechanical energy. While petrol engines compress a mixture of air and fuel and ignite it with a spark plug (externally-supplied ignition), diesel engines first compress pure air, which causes it to heat up. The fuel is later injected directly into the combustion chamber and ignites itself (self ignition). The direct injection with common rail technology enables the precise control of the ignition process, an even increase in pressure and the targeted burning of remaining soot particles by post injections. This minimizes burning noises, makes running smoother and reduces emissions.
The high compression ratio and pressure deliver generous torque even at low speeds and ensure efficient fuel combustion and thus lower consumption. Modern turbo technologies like the two-stage charging in the Variable Twin Turbo also increase the spontaneous power delivery and, in combination with modern automatic transmissions, minimize the response delay at low speeds. Thus BMW diesel engines combine the typical BMW dynamics and sportiness with smooth and refined running, low consumption and excellent acoustics.
