BMW EfficientDynamics: More power, less fuel consumption

With high-performance engines, superior suspension technology and an extremely torsion-resistant body, the new BMW 3-Series is building on its position as the sportiest sedan in its segment. It is also advancing even further on the comfort front. Agility and dynamism continue to be the sports sedan's stand-out features, and are key to its high standards of driving enjoyment.

State-of-the art petrol engines in the BMW 3-Series: BMW TwinPower Turbo technology for more dynamic performance and reduced fuel consumption

The petrol engines available at launch deliver best possible power, fast-revving performance and refinement, combined with unsurpassed efficiency. Both the new four-cylinder unit in the agile BMW 328i and the large-displacement six-cylinder unit in the new BMW 335i feature a perfect package of innovative technologies. The common feature of all these engines is BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, with twin-scroll turbocharging, High Precision Direct Petrol Injection, Double-Vanos variable camshaft timing and VALVETRONIC variable valve timing. The reduced-friction core engines also feature a lightweight all-aluminium crankcase, with benefits for both the efficiency and the agility of the new BMW 3-Series.
