To coincide with the market launch of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan, four high-torque, low-consumption engines are available, which all work with modern BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. They are the powerful heart in the new BMW 3 Series Sedan.
The modern and lively 2.0-litre engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology is the strongest power unit in a new generation of four-cylinder spark ignition engines, which are technologically derived from the award-winning six-cylinder petrol engine. As part of the BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy, they have been systematically designed for enhanced driving dynamics while at the same reducing fuel consumption and emission figures.
Also employed in the new BMW 3 Series Sedan is the established 2.0-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel, which offers an undiminished high output but now performs even more cost-efficiently and with fewer emissions. The engine with aluminium composite crankcase sets standards in many respects and combines the latest generation of common-rail direct injection with a turbocharger, including variable turbine geometry.
As a result, the BMW 328i with 180 kW (245 hp) accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds with an average fuel consumption of 6.4 litres per 100km and CO2 emissions of 149 g/km. The BMW 335i with 225 kW (306 hp) only needs 7.4 litres per 100 kilometres and achieves a CO2 value of 172 grams per kilometre. Equipped with the new 8-speed automatic transmission, the BMW 320d has an output of 135 kW and uses only 4.4 to 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres while achieving a CO2 value of 117 g/km. Thanks to additional special BMW EfficientDynamics features, the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics with 120kW (163 hp) achieves a CO2 value of 109 g/km and a fuel consumption of 4.1 litres per 100 kilometres, whether equipped with manual or automatic transmission.
