EFFICIENCY AND DYNAMICS.

Powering the legacy.

Every component that drives the new BMW 3 Series Saloon is focussed on performance and efficiency, so it offers a truly dynamic driving experience whilst keeping emissions and fuel consumption down.

Each model features petrol or diesel BMW TwinPowerTurbo engines in four or six cyclinderconfigurations, which guarantee the kind of performance and power you would expect from much larger engines. Plus, as each of these engines have been fine tuned to minimise friction and reduce thermal losses, efficiency is greatly increased, meaning you get more out of every litre of fuel.

8-SPEED STEPTRONIC SPORT TRANSMISSION.

8-SPEED STEPTRONIC SPORT TRANSMISSION.

The automatic 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission adapts to suit individual driving styles. It is perfect for everything from comfortable cruising through to a very dynamic drive. In addition to automatic gear selection, it is of course possible to shift gears manually at any time – optionally with the assistance of the Optimum Shift Indicator. The driver can change gears using the shortened gear lever or the gearshift paddles on the Sport leather steering wheel.
In SPORT mode, the gear shifts are configured for the best possible performance. Fast engine speed transitions between the gears bolster powerful acceleration. The engine always maintains a speed at which it can access very high power output at any time. The Launch Control function regulates the ideal starting engine speed, allowing maximum acceleration from a standing start. At high speeds, the eight gear reduces the engine speed and fuel consumption. This is also where the newly developed converter clutch comes into play. The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission works together with the engine to deliver smooth gear shifts and top figures in efficiency and power delivery.
