More energy and larger potency for a party of compress BMW M Performance Automobiles.

Posted on 17. May, 2016 by in BMW Canada

Munich. The flitting of a rod from one generation
of engines to a subsequent in Jul 2016 will capacitate a BMW M Performance
Automobiles in a BMW 1 Series and BMW 2 Series indication ranges to
showcase their stellar sporting impression with even larger élan. The
new six-cylinder in-line petrol engine in doubt – that develops
250 kW/340 hp, a 10 kW/14 hp boost in limit outlay over its
prototype – not usually optimises a sprinting energy of a dual cars,
it also lowers their fuel expenditure and CO2 emissions. The 3.0-litre
section with offer grown M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology
is a product of a BMW Group’s latest engine generation. The advances
in dynamics and potential that come as partial of a package are also
voiced by a new indication designations for a BMW M140i 3-door (fuel
expenditure combined: 7.8 l/100 km [36.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions
combined: 179 g/km), BMW M140i 5-door (fuel expenditure combined:
7.8 l/100 km [36.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 179 g/km),
BMW M240i Coupe (fuel expenditure combined: 7.8 l/100 km
[36.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 179 g/km) and
BMW M240i Convertible (fuel expenditure combined: 8.3 l/100 km
[34.0 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 189 g/km).

This boost in energy means a BMW M Performance members of a BMW 1
Series and BMW 2 Series indication ranges now offer a same outlay levels
as a BMW 1 Series M Coupe built between 2011 and 2012. They can
accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) adult to 0.3 seconds quicker than
their predecessors, and their fuel expenditure and emissions (as
distributed in a EU exam cycle) are as most as 7 per cent lower. The
BMW M140i 3-door, BMW M140i 5-door, BMW M240i Coupe and
BMW M240i Convertible are propitious with a six-speed primer gearbox as
standard, while a latest chronicle of a eight-speed Steptronic Sport
smoothness is accessible as an option. And as an choice to
promulgation their energy to a back wheels, all 4 models can also be
systematic with BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive.


Setting a benchmark for energy delivery, potential and
refinement: a new six-cylinder in-line petrol engine with M
Performance TwinPower Turbo technology.

The engine grown for this party of compress energy merchants
stands out from a throng with a immediate responses,
high-revving enthusiasm and model efficiency. Its energetic power
smoothness is accompanied by a beautifully heated take on the
emotionally abounding engine sound evil of a BMW straight-six.
The new section has an aluminium crankcase and cylinder head, and the
excellence that is serve a hallmark of BMW six-cylinder in-line
engines has been towering to another turn still interjection to new,
near-source acoustic shielding. The TwinScroll turbocharger integrated
into a cast-steel empty plural is intensely fit – on
comment of a compress construction and a participation of an indirect
intercooler. Helping to minimise emissions, meanwhile, are electric
wastegate control and a close-coupled arrangement of a catalytic converter.

The latest era of VALVETRONIC entirely non-static valve control
provides quite accurate bucket control, enhancing a engine’s
responsiveness and efficiency. And rounding off a latest refurbish of
M Performance TwinPower Turbo record is Double-VANOS variable
camshaft timing on both a intake and empty sides. Also doing their
bit to sign a unusually excellent change between pushing pleasure
and fuel expenditure for this outlay category are a coolant siphon that
operates usually as necessary, a map-controlled oil pump, Electric Power
Steering, a Auto Start Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration and
several other solutions grown underneath a ensign of BMW EfficientDynamics.

A pivotal component in a new engine’s ability to offer adult thrillingly
energetic acceleration is a pulling energy that comes on daub early and
is confirmed over a far-reaching rev range. The new section lays on rise torque
of 500 Newton metres (369 lb-ft) between 1,500 and 4,500 rpm and
generates limit outlay of 250 kW/340 hp during 5,500 rpm.


Six-speed primer gearbox with stifle b
lipping function, eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission
with wider rigging spread.

Technical innovations designed to raise pushing pleasure and
optimise potential are also during work in a send of engine power
to a driven wheels. The customary six-speed primer gearbox propitious in
a compress BMW M Performance Automobiles offers an rendezvous speed
control duty to broach unusually well-spoken rigging changes. On
downshifts, a smoothness government increases change comfort by
initiating a stifle blipping function; as a motorist shifts into a
reduce gear, this increases a engine’s revs to a ideal turn for
a aim gear.

The latest-generation six-cylinder in-line engine can be combined
with a serve new chronicle of a eight-speed Steptronic Sport
smoothness as an option. With a wider rigging widespread and further
softened inner efficiency, this involuntary smoothness – propitious as
customary on a all-wheel-drive versions of a compress BMW M
Performance Automobiles – creates an additional grant to
augmenting efficiency. The choice of carrying out mixed downshifts
opens a doorway to some-more energetic gearshifts and quite swift
responses to movements in a accelerator. Added to which, a cars’
pushing comfort and acoustic interest both advantage from a use of a
rev-linked quivering damper. The eight-speed Steptronic Sport
smoothness provides top-class change dynamics and, in serve to the
Launch Control duty delivering traction-optimised acceleration off
a line, also offers a predictive change strategy. Here, the
smoothness government works in and with a car’s navigation
complement to analyse a pushing conditions and track form and, in so
doing, establish a ideal impulse for a rigging change.


Enhanced dynamics, reduce fuel consumption: acceleration
improves by adult to 0.3 seconds, fuel expenditure drops by as most as
7 per cent.

The additional energetic potential heralded by a offer developed
powertrain record is reflected by significantly improved
acceleration values. The BMW M140i 3-door and BMW M140i 5-door
finish a lurch from 0 to  100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds with the
customary six-speed primer gearbox or 4.6 seconds with a optional
eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission. All of that means they
reach 100 km/h (62 mph) 0.3 seconds earlier in both cases than their
particular predecessors. An matching alleviation can be seen with the
BMW M140i xDrive 3-door and BMW M140i xDrive 5-door, that dispatch
a same scurry in only 4.4 seconds. Average fuel expenditure in the
EU exam cycle comes in during 7.8 litres per 100 kilometres [36.2 mpg imp]
for a BMW M140i 3-door and BMW M140i 5-door (automatic: 7.1 l/100 km
[39.8 mpg imp]) and 7.4 litres per 100 kilometres [38.2 mpg imp] for
a BMW M140i xDrive 3-door and BMW M140i xDrive 5-door. Which equates
to a dump of between 3 and 5 per cent next a total accessible by
a effusive models. CO2 emissions are now 179 grams per kilometre
(automatic: 163 g/km) for a rear-wheel-drive models and 169 grams
per kilometre where xDrive is involved.

The BMW M240i Coupe serve powers from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in
4.8 seconds (automatic: 4.6 seconds) – or 4.4 seconds in
all-wheel-drive guise. Those total paint an alleviation of
0.2 seconds in both cases. Fuel expenditure and emissions in a EU
exam cycle are down by 4 to 7 per cent compared to their predecessors’
values. The BMW M240i Coupe now posts a figure of 7.8 litres per 100
kilometres [36.2 mpg imp] (179 g/km) with a primer gearbox or
7.1 litres per 100 kilometres [39.8 mpg imp] (163 g/km) when the
eight-speed Steptronic Sport smoothness is fitted. The BMW
M240i xDrive Coupe is rated during 7.4 litres per 100 kilometres
[38.2 mpg imp] (169 g/km).

Both variants of a open-top BMW M Performance Automobile competition from
rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) 0.3 seconds faster than before. The
acceleration total now mount during 4.9 seconds (automatic: 4.7 seconds)
for a BMW M240i Convertible and 4.6 seconds for the
BMW M240i xDrive Convertible. Combined fuel expenditure and emissions
in a EU exam cycle dump by 2 to 6 per cent – to 8.3 litres per 100
kilometres [34.0 mpg imp] (189 g/km) in and with the
six-speed-manual gearbox, 7.4 litres per 100 kilometres [38.2 mpg imp]
(169 g/km) if a eight-speed Steptronic Sport smoothness is fitted
and 7.8 litres per 100 kilometres [36.2 mpg imp] (179 g/km) in the
box of a BMW M240i xDrive Convertible.

Just like their offer upgraded powertrain technology, the
model-specific apparatus compositions on house a compress BMW M
Performance Automobiles are also geared to compelling a driving
knowledge that fuels sporting ambitions. Standard specification
includes M Sport cessation lowered by 10 millimetres, 18-inch M
light-alloy wheels in disdainful double-spoke design, an M Sport
braking system, Variable Sports Steering with Servotronic function, a
model-specific M aerodynamic package and extraneous counterpart caps in
Ferric Grey metallic. Playing their partial in a sporting interior
ambience are a cloth/Alcantara sports seats with blue contrast
stitching, a M leather steering circle and an M driver’s footrest.
