Munich. Two intensely fit high-performance
models are fasten a BMW M choice in a reward midsize segment.
The six-cylinder in-line diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo
record propitious in a BMW M340d xDrive Sedan (fuel consumption
combined: 5.7 – 5.3 l/100 km [49.6 – 53.3 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions
combined: 149 – 139 g/km) and BMW M340d xDrive Touring (fuel
expenditure combined: 5.8 – 5.4 l/100 km [48.7 – 52.3 mpg imp]; CO2
emissions combined: 153 – 143 g/km) produces well-developed pulling power
while attaining serve considerable levels of efficiency. The
3.0-litre section generates extent outlay of 250 kW/340 hp and peak
torque of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). The inclusion of 48V amiable hybrid
technology, meanwhile, has led to a serve rebate in fuel
expenditure and emissions. Thanks to their extensive arsenal of
empty gas diagnosis technologies, including an SCR catalytic
converter with AdBlue injection, a many absolute diesel variants of
a new BMW 3 Series also approve with a destiny Euro 6d emissions standard.
The attainment of a new BMW M340d xDrive Sedan and
BMW M340d xDrive Touring in Apr 2020 move that matchless M feeling
to a diesel-fuelled BMW 3 Series for a initial time. The manly engine
in a new BMW M models teams adult with an eight-speed Steptronic Sport
transmission, bespoke framework record and intelligent all-wheel
drive. M Sport cessation – including non-static competition steering – and
M Sport brakes are propitious as customary on both models, serve the
M Sport differential. M-specific extraneous facilities with optimised
aerodynamic properties are partial of an altogether package that leaves no
mill unturned in a sustenance of autarchic performance. The new
BMW M340d xDrive Sedan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just
4.6 seconds, while a new BMW M340d xDrive Touring completes a same
scurry in 4.8 seconds. The multiple of pulsating driving
characteristics and a cockpit focusing precisely on a delight of
heated pushing pleasure guarantees an fascinating knowledge of high
opening during work.
Exceptional appetite smoothness meets indication efficiency: the
six-cylinder in-line diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo
record and 250 kW/340 hp.
The new M models in a BMW 3 Series choice owe their unmistakable
impression in no tiny partial to superb appetite smoothness joined with
rock-bottom fuel expenditure and emissions given a opening at
hand. Their 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line diesel engine facilities a
crankcase and cylinder conduct both done from aluminium. Frictional
waste in a bottom engine are reduced by measures including a wire-arc
sprayed steel cloaking for a cylinder bores.
The appetite unit’s BMW TwinPower Turbo record comprises a two-stage
turbocharging complement with optimised thermodynamics and approach charge
atmosphere cooling, along with common-rail approach injection regulating piezo
injectors. To safeguard unusually pointy turbocharger response, the
system’s high-pressure and low-pressure stages both underline variable
turbine geometry. The serve grown approach injection system, whose
injectors now work during a extent 2,700 bar, ensures a precisely
metered supply of fuel and intensely purify combustion. Integral
vigour sensors capacitate adult to 10 injections per stoke. Engine
response and potency also advantage from an intake complement with
optimised atmosphere routing, whose upgraded pattern enhances a appetite unit’s
acoustics as well. Extensive engine encapsulation measures safeguard the
straight-six is quite easy on a ears – and during a same time
helps to optimise warm-up behaviour. Specially grown for a new
BMW M340d xDrive Sedan and BMW M340d xDrive Touring, a diesel unit’s
arise torque of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) is on tide from only 1,750 rpm,
while extent outlay of 250 kW/340 hp arrives during 4,400 rpm.
Mild hybrid record with a 48V starter-generator increases
impetus and efficiency.
The inclusion of amiable hybrid record allows a engine to build
appetite with an even larger clarity of urgency. The 48V starter-generator
propitious in a new BMW M models creates an electric boost outcome that
now puts an additional 8 kW/11 hp on tap. This additional input
augments appetite smoothness underneath tough acceleration and increases
potency during unchanging speeds. The electrical appetite compulsory here is
stored in a 48V battery that is charged by improving appetite under
braking or on a overrun. Plus, additional appetite can be granted to
a 48V battery by lifting a engine’s bucket point.
The appetite generated in this approach assists a engine when travelling at
a consistent speed, too, definition it can work within an
efficiency-optimised bucket operation as mostly as possible. As a result,
there are fewer spikes in fuel consumption. The amiable hybrid technology
has a additional advantage of improving a operation of a Auto
Start Stop and coasting functions. The 48V generator allows a engine
to be deactivated with really small quivering and restarted smoothly
during brief stops during junctions or in trade jams. When braking, the
engine can be switched off during speeds next 15 km/h (9 mph) already.
The coasting duty accessible when a Driving Experience Control
switch is set to ECO PRO or COMFORT mode also shuts a engine down
completely, formulating serve intensity for obscure fuel consumption.
M Sport empty complement generates stirring soundtrack, exhaust
gas diagnosis complies with a Euro 6d emissions standard.
The straight-six diesel engine in a new BMW M340d xDrive Sedan and
BMW M340d xDrive Touring backs a refreshing appetite smoothness with a
rarely sold auditory accompaniment. Both models are versed as
customary with an M Sport empty complement whose back silencer culminates
in a span of trapezoidal tailpipes.
With a perspective to minimising emissions, a diesel engine in a new
BMW M340d xDrive Sedan and BMW M340d xDrive Touring includes an
fit low-pressure empty gas recirculation circuit and an
intensely absolute three-way high-pressure empty gas recirculation
circuit. Added to which, a two-stage NOX empty re-treatment system
propitious as customary by BMW in diesel-engined models given 2012 has been
serve developed. The close-to-engine member of a empty gas
diagnosis complement with BMW BluePerformance record comprises a
diesel burning matter and an SCR cloaking in a diesel particulate
filter. A second SCR matter has been integrated during a exit of the
close-to-engine complement to minimise nitrogen oxide emissions (NOX). The
new BMW M models in a BMW 3 Series operation therefore approve with the
mandate of a Euro 6d emissions customary not due to come into
force until 2021.
Sublime appetite transfer: eight-speed Steptronic Sport
transmission, BMW xDrive and M Sport differential as standard.
The absolute straight-six diesel hooks adult as customary with the
latest-generation eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, whose
ratio spacing is ideally attuned to a appetite unit’s performance
characteristics. As good as super-sharp rigging shifts, a transmission
stands out with a optimised hydraulic control system, low converter
trip and effective damping of rotational irregularities. Shift paddles
on a steering circle capacitate lightning-fast primer interventions in
a rigging preference process. There is also a Launch Control function
for accelerating off a line with full energetic intent.
The intelligent all-wheel-drive complement in a new
BMW M340d xDrive Sedan and BMW M340d xDrive Touring enables fully
non-static placement of expostulate appetite between a front and back wheels
regulating an electronically tranquil multi-plate purchase in a transfer
case. Working in tandem with a DSC (Dynamic Stability Control)
system, BMW xDrive reacts to changes in a pushing conditions with
good pointing and in a fragment of a second, maximising traction,
lively and doing fortitude in all continue and highway surface
conditions, and when a motorist explores a car’s sporting
capabilities. The system’s rear-biased setup helps to furnish the
pushing knowledge approaching of an M car, and is generally pronounced
with a Driving Experience Control switch set to SPORT or SPORT+
mode. Judicious apportioning of even some-more appetite to a back wheels
increases turn-in agility, in particular.
The M Sport differential for a back spindle – another customary feature
related with both DSC and a all-wheel-drive complement – ensures appetite is
eliminated to a highway with even larger precision. The fully
non-static locking duty is means to extent speed equalisation between
a inside and outward circle by corners so that a car’s agility
and cornering bravery arise to new levels underneath tough driving. This
helps a motorist to appetite out of bends with additional energetic verve. In
situations where a highway aspect offers incompatible levels of adhesion
for a left and right back wheels, a M Sport differential increases
traction and doing fortitude by preventing trip during a wheel
struggling for grip.
Standard: M Sport cessation and non-static competition steering.
Like a engine and appetite smoothness tech, a framework systems on
house a BMW M340d xDrive Sedan and BMW M340d xDrive Touring are
designed to broach autarchic performance. Both models are versed as
customary with M Sport suspension, that extracts a full dynamic
doing intensity offering by a double-joint open strut front axle
/ five-link back spindle multiple on a new BMW 3 Series to
refreshing effect. The M Sport package brings a ten-millimetre drop
in float height, M-specific elastokinematics and lift-related dampers.
The latter brew additional hydraulic damping on miscarry during a front
spindle with a compression-limiting complement during a rear, enabling
invariably variable, on-going composition of check trust in
response to open travel. Vibrations gifted during dynamic
cornering or on rough highway surfaces can therefore be smoothed out with
Alternatively, business can opt for Adaptive M suspension with
electronically tranquil dampers. This complement of check control
offers intensely finely metered open and damping responses and
adapts constantly to both pushing character and highway aspect conditions.
The application and miscarry stages are tweaked exclusively of one
another to compare a conditions during hand. The damping characteristics
can be practiced regulating a Driving Experience Control switch. SPORT and
SPORT+ modes optimise energetic pushing and emanate a conspicuous contrast
to a some-more comfort-oriented check responses in COMFORT and ECO PRO modes.
Both a customary M Sport cessation and discretionary Adaptive
M suspension join army with non-static competition steering, whose
Servotronic speed-sensitive appetite assistance helps to give a cars
unshakable straight-line intrepidity and accurate turn-in through
boldly taken corners. The non-static ratio adjusts to changes in
a steering angle, serve enhancing comfort. It allows drivers to
perform low-speed manoeuvres with minimal steering circle transformation and
but changing their hold on a wheel, during a same time as
augmenting lively on twisty sections of road.
M Sport brakes and M light-alloy wheels with mixed-size tyres.
Outstanding interlude appetite and a pointedly sporty setup – headlined
by brief pedal transport and a graphic vigour indicate – are a defining
characteristics of a M Sport brakes (also standard). Four-piston
bound callipers and 348-millimetre discs during a front wheels and
single-piston floating callipers with 345-millimetre discs during a rear
form a basement for safe, magnificently positive handling, while
blue-painted callipers temperament a M logo supplement a visible flourish.
Rounding off a framework highlights on a new BMW M340d xDrive Sedan
and BMW M340d xDrive Touring are 18‑inch M light-alloy wheels with
mixed-size tyres measuring 225/45 R 18 during a front and 255/40 R 18 at
a rear. 19‑inch M light-alloy wheels in 3 designs can be found
on a options list alongside 19‑inch BMW Individual light-alloy
wheels, again with mixed-size tyres. The 19‑inch M light-alloy wheels
are also accessible with high-performance tyres.
M‑specific pattern facilities for a extraneous and interior.
Signature BMW M extraneous pattern facilities assistance to give a new
BMW M340d xDrive Sedan and BMW M340d xDrive Touring a sold look
that re-asserts their superb opening capabilities. The front
apron, side skirts and back styling of both models have been crafted
to do organic mandate in terms of cooling atmosphere supply and
aerodynamics. The new BMW M340d xDrive Sedan adds a body-coloured
M rear spoiler to a mix. The bespoke pattern elements on both models
also embody a mesh-design BMW kidney grille and trapezoidal exhaust
tailpipes. BMW Individual High-gloss Shadowline trim and a Cerium Grey
lead finish for a extraneous counterpart caps, a atmosphere intake trim in
a front bumper, a aspect of a BMW kidney grille filigree and its
surround, a tailpipes, and a indication badge supplement to a exclusive
coming of a BMW M duo.
The interior’s styling and apparatus are focused wholly on
maximising delight of a heated pushing knowledge served adult by
a car. The customary sports seats for a motorist and front passenger
are upholstered in an M-specific multiple of Sensatec and Alcantara
with contrariety quilting in Blue, while an anthracite-coloured BMW
Individual headliner, an M leather steering circle with multifunction
buttons and change paddles, M pedals, M-specific building mats and
interior trim strips in Aluminium Tetragon with accent strips in
Pearl-effect Chrome move serve touches of sporting aptitude to a interior.
As good as bespoke powertrain / framework record and M-specific
pattern features, a customary apparatus register for the
BMW M340d xDrive Sedan and BMW M340d xDrive Touring also includes
three-zone involuntary meridian control (with apart operation of the
heat and movement settings both for a motorist and front
newcomer side and a back compartment), ambient lighting, extended
storage and an automatically dimming rear-view mirror. Also featured
as customary in a new BMW M models are Park Distance Control with
sensors during a front and rear, BMW Live Cockpit Plus finish with
navigation complement and 8.8-inch Control Display, and a Connected
Package Plus including Real Time Traffic Information, Remote Services,
Concierge Services and Apple CarPlay preparation.
