BMW presented its plans for the beginning of the year. Now buyers can count on the 318i version with a 2.0-liter TwinPower turbo, which develops 156 horsepower and a maximum torque of 250 Nm. There are characteristics that make the car accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 8.4 seconds (8.7 seconds for the Touring version). The sedan can reach a top speed of 223 km / h, while the station wagon can reach 220 km / h.

A standard micro-hybrid system will also be available from March for the 320d, 320d xDrive Sedan and 320d and 320 xDrive Touring versions. The system comes complete with a 48-volt starter-generator that acts as an electric motor, and an additional battery that provides higher acceleration values and more efficient running.
The series 1 line also gets a new representative: it's a 120d with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo diesel engine that develops 190 horsepower and connects to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The standard 7-series and 8-series also feature new features, as well as new upholstery options for the X5, X6 and X7 models.
