BMW model update measures for spring 2013.
Munich. BMW will be treating customers to even greater driving pleasure and an even more diverse line-up of models from spring 2013, thanks to additional engine and drive system variants, an expanded range of equipment and attractive new BMW ConnectedDrive features. The selection of petrol engines available for the BMW 3 Series Touring will stretch from the entry-level BMW 316i Touring developing 100 kW/136 hp all the way to the similarly new flagship model, the BMW 335i Touring with 225 kW/306 hp. The engine line-up will be bolstered by another two diesel variants, including the extremely efficient BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Edition Touring. Customers will also be able to order the new BMW 3 Series Touring with intelligent all-wheel drive from spring 2013; five xDrive variants will be available initially. The move sees BMW pushing ahead with its model offensive in the all-wheel-drive sector; six additional xDrive variants will be added to the BMW 3 Series range in total, while the BMW 6 Series will welcome a further four all-wheel-drive models. Meanwhile, the number of models which meet the EU6 exhaust stipulations – due to come into force in September 2014 – as standard is also set to grow.
An exclusive package of equipment features marks out the Limited Edition Lifestyle models poised to swell the ranks of the BMW 1 Series Coupe and BMW 1 Series Convertible in spring 2013. Plus, the new generation of the Professional navigation system will be available as an option for all variants of the BMW 6 Series, the BMW X3 and the BMW 1 Series in both 5-door and 3-door guise. Standard equipment for all BMW 6 Series and new BMW 3 Series models will now include Intelligent Emergency Call with automatic vehicle location and accident severity detection, while the new BMW 3 Series will also feature a hands-free system and USB interface as standard in future.
