Midrand – The engine line-up for the BMW 4 Series range (Coupé, Convertible and Gran Coupé), has been refreshed. The flagship engine has been reinvented and improved once again to create a new six-cylinder in-line unit with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, with a maximum output of 240kW, an increase of 15kW from the previous generation.
In the new BMW 440i Coupé the engine channels its power through an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard. With a 0.2 second improvement, the BMW 440i Coupé accelerates from zero to 100km/h in just 5.0 seconds, the BMW 440i Convertible completes the same sprint in 6.3 seconds and the BMW 440i Gran Coupé posts a figure of 5.1 seconds. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are both reduced by up to 12 per cent and now stand at 6,6 l/100km and 154g/km for the BMW 440i Coupé, for the BMW 440i Convertible 5,9 l/100km and 159 g/km, for the BMW 440i Gran Coupé 7,5l/100km and 154g/km. The BMW 440i replaces the BMW 435i.
The new four-cylinder petrol engines available for the BMW 4 Series have also been improved to enhance sporting performance and efficiency. With output raised to 185kW and peak torque of 350Nm, the most powerful latest-generation four-cylinder unit provides a zero to 100 km/h time of 5.8 seconds (5.0 seconds) for the new BMW 430i Coupé, 6.4 seconds for the new BMW 430i Convertible and 5.5 seconds (6.1 seconds) for the new BMW 430i Gran Coupé. The BMW 430i replaces the BMW 428i.
The BMW 420i Coupé, BMW 420i Convertible and BMW 420i Gran Coupé are also powered by a member of the latest engine generation in the shape of the 135kW four-cylinder unit. The new BMW 420i Coupé sprints from zero to 100km/h in just 7.3 seconds (7.5 seconds), while the BMW 420i Convertible and BMW 420i Gran Coupé log times of 8.2 seconds (8.4 seconds) and 7.5 seconds (7.7 seconds) respectively. Combined fuel consumption and CO2 emissions stand at 5.8 l/100km (5.5 l/100km) and 134g/km (127g/km) for both the BMW 420i Coupé and the BMW 420i Gran Coupé, while the BMW 420i Convertible records figures of 45.6mpg (48.7mpg) and 145g/km (136g/km).
