Munich / The focus of the model revision measures for numerous BMW model series that will take effect in autumn 2020 are increased efficiency through consistent electrification, optimised emissions and innovations in the areas of driver assistance and digital services.

This makeover will catapult this automobile behemoth to a different league. BMW has made all its models Euro 6d compliant with new plug-in hybrid models for the BMW 5 Series. Further, in-line six-cylinder diesel engines with 48-volt mild hybrid technology have been introduced in the BMW 3 Series and BMW 8 Series while the BMW 1 Series and BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé come now with new engines.

You also have the Driving Assistant Professional with traffic light detection Urban Cruise Control. The above models have also been inducted with new digital services: there is the BMW News, the driver profiles with photos via QR code can be calculated via My BMW App, and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant with new functions.

The Driving Assistant Professional option in many current models from November 2020 will provide added comfort and safety through the new Urban Cruise Control function. The range of BMW models with electrified drive systems is especially attractive. In the new BMW 545e xDrive Sedan, an inline 6-cylinder petrol engine and an electric drive integrated into the 8-speed Steptronic transmission deliver impressive driving dynamics in a particularly efficient manner.

The 48-volt mild hybrid technology will be used in four further BMW 3 Series models from November 2020. In the new BMW 330d Sedan (combined fuel consumption: 4.7 – 4.4 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 125 – 116 g/km) and the new BMW 330d Xdrive Sedan (combined fuel consumption: 5.0 – 4.7 l/100 km*; combined CO2 emissions: 132 – 123 g/km) and the new BMW 330d Touring (combined fuel consumption: 4.8 – 4.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 128 – 119 g/km) and the new BMW 330d Xdrive Touring (combined fuel consumption: 5.2 – 4.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 136 – 127 g/km), it supports the new inline 6-cylinder diesel engine, which already provides additional driving pleasure with its maximum output increased by 15 kW/21 hp to 210 kW/286 hp.

Thanks to a two-stage turbocharging system and an advanced common rail injection system whose piezo injectors now inject the fuel with up to ten injections per working cycle and a maximum pressure of 2 700 bar into the combustion chambers, engine response and efficiency of the 3.0 litre engine are optimised.

The new diesel engine generates its maximum torque, which has been increased by 30 to 650 Nm, between 1 500 and 2 500 rpm. The increased power of the combustion engine and the additional electrical power noticeably improve the car’s sprint capacity.
