BMW is strengthening its model range from Spring 2013, thanks to additional engine and drive system variants and an expanded range of equipment.


New BMW 3 Series Touring: four additional engine variants, including the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics.

Two new petrol engines and a pair of diesel powerplants will add greater depth to the new BMW 3 Series Touring range from Spring 2013.


The new BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Touring offers an impressive blend of driving pleasure and fuel economy. The former is delivered courtesy of a 163hp, four-cylinder diesel unit, while the engine’s inherent efficiency and the EfficientDynamics technologies are complemented by attributes including optimised aerodynamics to further boost the latter. The BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Touring is offered with both a six-speed manual gearbox and an eight-speed automatic. Both versions record an average fuel consumption on the combined cycle of 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 112g/km. This exceptional efficiency is accompanied by strong performance taking just 8.3 seconds for the dash from zero to 62mph.


The second new diesel variant in the line-up is the BMW 325d Touring. Its four-cylinder diesel engine boasts BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, developing 218hp and producing a maximum torque of 450Nm. The BMW 325d Touring sprints from zero to 62mph in just 6.9 seconds, while averaging a combined 55.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 134 g/km on the EU test cycle. This additional engine variant will also be introduced simultaneously in the new BMW 3 Series Saloon.


The BMW 3 Series Touring range now has a new entry point with the introduction of the petrol-powered BMW 316i Touring.  Powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and developing 136hp, this engine is teamed with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but an eight-speed automatic can be ordered as an option. The BMW 316i Touring accelerates from zero to 62mph in 9.4 seconds, while its average fuel consumption stands at 45.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 143g/km.


The most sporting variant of the range is the BMW 335i Touring, powered by the range-topping straight-six petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology that develops 306hp. A zero to 62 mph time of only 5.5 seconds – dropping to 5.2 seconds with the eight-speed automatic gearbox – demonstrates the outstanding performance on offer. However, with an average combined fuel consumption of 34.9mpg and CO2 emissions of 189g/km it’s clear that this performance is very much in hand with efficiency.

BMW xDrive: introducing three variants of the BMW 3 Series Touring and the BMW 120d with intelligent all-wheel drive.

For the first time in the UK the BMW 3 Series Touring and 1 Series Sports Hatch are now available with all-wheel drive from March 2013. News of these introductions also comes as xDrive comes to the 320d and 330d engines in the 3 Series Saloon range.

The 184hp BMW 320d xDrive Touring will make its UK debut alongside two other BMW 3 Series Touring variants, the 184hp BMW 320i xDrive Touring and the 258hp BMW 330d xDrive Touring. Both the BMW 320d and 320i xDrive Touring come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard or an eight-speed automatic as an option. Completing the engine line-up, the BMW 330d xDrive will be available in both Touring and Saloon guise. Here, the xDrive system joins forces with a 258hp six-cylinder in-line diesel engine and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.


The 320d and 330d engines are also offered in xDrive guise for the 3 Series Saloon for the first time in the UK. In 2012 BMW sold 11,151 variants of the 320d making it the most popular single model in the BMW range and the addition of xDrive will help broaden the car’s popularity further. Meanwhile, the six-cylinder 258hp 330d xDrive Saloon offers drivers greater performance to go with the all-weather traction.


Completing the current UK xDrive line-up is the BMW 120d xDrive 5-door Sports Hatch, with manual transmission.  The BMW xDrive system adds just 75kg to the total vehicle weight, helping to curtail CO2 emissions to just 123g/km and return 60.1mpg on the combined cycle.


Engine enhancements for the BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch

BMW is constantly investing in and improving engine technology, performance and efficiency and the latest example of this can be seen in the BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch range. 


Improvements in efficiency with the BMW 116i SE means it now emits just 125g/km, a saving of 7g/km, resulting in a Benefit-In-Kind (BIK) rate of just 16 per cent for company car drivers.  The BMW 116d also sees a significant improvement with CO2 emissions falling to just 109g/km in both manual and automatic guise, a drop of 8g/km and 10g/km respectively without any drop in performance.  This results in a fall of two BIK bands, making this efficient car even more appealing to both private and company car buyers alike. 


The even more efficient BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch range will be on sale from March 2013 priced from just £17,510 OTR for a BMW 114i ES 3-door Sports Hatch. 


First petrol-powered BMW X1 comes to the UK

From March 2013 the BMW X1 range will expand to include a new entry model and a petrol variant for the first time in the UK.


The new BMW X1 20i will be available in sDrive and xDrive, using the efficient BMW 2.0-litre TwinPower Turbo petrol engine with TwinScroll Turbo technology.  This new engine emits just 162g/km CO2 (157g/km when fitted with the optional eight-speed automatic transmission) whilst still travelling from zero to 62mph in just 7.4 seconds, when mated to the standard six-speed manual transmission.

Further to the addition of the first petrol variants, there will be a new entry point to ownership in the X1 range with the launch of the BMW X1 sDrive16d.  This new model emits just 128g/km CO2 and on the combined cycle delivering 57.6mpg, whilst still managing a zero to 62mph of 11.5 seconds.

Optimised emissions: Even more BMW models now meet the EU6 exhaust emissions standard.
The number of BMW models meeting the EU6 regulations will increase from March 2013. With EU6 technology now optionally available on a wider range of cars including BMW Z4 sDrive18i, BMW Z4 sDrive20i and BMW Z4 sDrive28i, this brings the total number of EU6-compliant BMW models to 35.


BMW 1 Series Coupé and Convertible: Pure Design Package.

The BMW 1 Series Coupé and Convertible will see the introduction of the new Pure Design package on M Sport models from March 2013. A suite of exterior and interior features emphasise the sophisticated aesthetics of both models.


The Pure Design package is available with Mineral White metallic paint, Mocha leather upholstery with contrast white stitching, Fine-wood trim and a Mocha with metallic Silver fleck soft-top roof (for Convertible models only).  These unique elements are enhanced with the inclusion of 18-inch M Double-spoke alloy wheels, Chromeline exterior trim, white and chrome kidney grille and heated front seats.


Alternatively Carbon Black or Space Grey paint is available at no additional cost, as is High-gloss Shadowline exterior trim.  This package costs £1,750 on the Coupé and £1,800 on the Convertible,representing a customer saving of more than £600.


New generation Professional Navigation System now also available for the BMW 6 Series, BMW X3 and new BMW 1 Series.

The latest generation of the BMW Professional Navigation System works even faster thanks to an extremely powerful processor, offering additional route display functions and sharp 3D graphics for all menus. From Spring 2013 this system will be available in all BMW 6 Series models, the new BMW 1 Series and in the BMW X3.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
