Autumn is a ripe moment for BMW model updates

The German Munich based company has just announced its additions to the engine range for some of the models in the portfolio as well as the new features in the BMW ConnectedDrive range.

In November 2013 another three variants will be added to the line-up of engines of the 4 Series Coupe. The new entry-level petrol model is the BMW 420i Coupe. Here, a 135 kW/184 hp four-cylinder engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology teams up with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard or an eight-speed automatic as an option.

Next we have two new six-in-line diesel variants, the 430d Coupe produces 190 kW/258 hp and sends its power to the rear wheels via a standard eight-speed automatic gearbox. The 230 kW/313 hp BMW 435d Coupe is likewise fitted as standard with the eight-speed automatic, but comes with BMW xDrive all-wheel drive. Also, the BMW Sport Line and BMW Luxury Line packages already introduced will now be joined by the BMW Modern Line.

November 2013 will also see the premiere of a new flagship model for the BMW 3 Series. Like the BMW 435d Coupe, the BMW 335d xDrive Touring has a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine developing 230 kW/313 hp to thank for its sporting performance credentials. Assisting it are the BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, an eight-speed automatic gearbox and the all-wheel drive system.

The third-generation X5 will be available for the first time from December 2013 with a BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine and rear-wheel drive. The engine powering the new BMW X5 xDrive25d and BMW X5 sDrive25d uses two turbochargers and common rail direct injection to produce maximum output of 160 kW/218 hp and links up as standard with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Also new to the line-up are the BMW X5 xDrive35i with its 225 kW/306 hp six-cylinder in-line petrol engine and the BMW X5 xDrive40d, whose straight-six diesel unit develops 230 kW/313 hp.

The BMW ConnectedDrive range of features also gains new additions: optional Driving Assistant Plus system now also includes the Traffic Jam Assistant function, and the new generation of the BMW Parking Assistant also makes its debut – likewise on the options list.
