The new BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW 1 Series 116i stands for optimum efficiency and a high performance potential. At full power, it generates 80 kW (109 hp) and delivers a maximum torque of 180 Nm.
The new model is entering the market with a choice of two gasoline engines and one diesel power unit. In the process BMW’s newly developed straight-six gasoline engine for the fi rst time featuring turbocharger technology, High Precision Injection and variable VALVETRONIC valve management all together is making its world debut. Indeed, the intelligent combination of these three technologies gives this power unit the best and most direct response ever offered by a straight-six turbocharged engine from BMW.
The new BMW TwinPower Turbo develops 225 kW/306 hp at a speed of 5,800 rpm, maintaining its maximum torque of 400 Newton-metres/295 lb-ft over a wide speed range from 1,200–5,000 rpm and, in comparison with the BMW turbo engine already well-known in other model series, offering even greater fuel economy combined with optimised CO2 management.
