BMW Model Range Upgrade - Fall 2011 (Part 1/8): Overview

BMW Europe: Official Press Release

The BMW Model Range from Autumn 2011. (Short Version)

From autumn 2011, newly developed engines, innovative BMW ConnectedDrive functions and numerous other attractive additions to standard and optional equipment will lend further variety to the BMW model range and imbue the brand’s hallmark characteristics with renewed vigour. Newly developed petrol and diesel engines backed by BMW TwinPower Turbo technology will be made available for several model series, boosting driving pleasure once again while further reducing fuel consumption and emissions. At the same time, the range of BMW EfficientDynamics technology fitted as standard will be expanded across the model series.

New exterior paint finishes and interior trim variants, additional comfort-enhancing features and innovative systems linking up drivers with their cars and surroundings underline the premium character of the individual models. For example, Real-Time Traffic Information and more Apps functions from BMW ConnectedDrive will be available for several models from autumn 2011.

BMW 3 Series range: attractive Edition models add the personal touch.

From autumn 2011, the BMW 3 Series Coupé and BMW 3 Series Convertible will be available in Exclusive Edition and M Sport Edition guises. Precisely coordinated design features and equipment options offer customers the chance to add striking emphasis to either the sophisticated or the dynamic side of their car’s character. A BMW Individual hardtop in contrasting paint finish is available for the first time for the BMW 3 Series Convertible. And the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Edition Touring will also be available in Exclusive and Lifestyle special editions.

BMW 5 Series range: even more efficient thanks to BMW TwinPower Turbo.

The BMW 5 Series range builds on its leading position in the areas of design, sporting capability, comfort and efficiency with an extended range of engines. The BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Edition, for example, represents the epitome of efficiency in a premium executive class car. The Sedan is powered by a 135 kW/184 hp four-cylinder diesel engine, yet its average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle is just 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres (62.8 mpg imp). New four-cylinder engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology add further talent to the line-up of petrol and diesel powerplants. The eight-cylinder engine under its bonnet makes the BMW 550i Touring the flagship five-door variant of the 5 Series family. A new highlight from BMW ConnectedDrive, meanwhile, is the hands-free tailgate/rear window opening function – an additional string to the Comfort Access option’s bow.

In addition, the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo can be ordered with an M Sport package from autumn 2011, and new options from the BMW Individual range are also available for this model.

BMW 6 Series range: premiere for six-cylinder diesel engine and xDrive.

Coinciding with the market launch of the new BMW 6 Series Coupé, additional engine variants will also be available for the new BMW 6 Series Convertible from autumn 2011. Making its debut in both models is the world’s sportiest six-cylinder diesel engine, a 230 kW/313 hp 3.0-litre unit boasting BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. For the first time, BMW 6 Series models will be available with the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system – just one of the innovative equipment features customers will be able to order for their new BMW 6 Series Coupé or Convertible.

BMW 7 Series range: M Sport package for the BMW ActiveHybrid 7.

Attractive additions to its selection of optional equipment further increase the BMW 7 Series range’s profile in the luxury sedan segment, while the introduction of the M Sport package for the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 lays on an even more alluring combination of luxury, efficiency and sports performance.

BMW Z4: now with even greater efficiency and Pure Balance design package.

The BMW Z4 will line up from autumn 2011 with the promise of further advances in driving pleasure and efficiency. Two newly developed four-cylinder petrol engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology will be available for the Roadster. The 2.0-litre units for the BMW Z4 sDrive20i and BMW Z4 sDrive28i develop 135 kW/184 hp and 180 kW/245 hp respectively, and can team up – as an option – with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All variants of the BMW Z4 will now be fitted as standard with Servotronic speed-sensitive power steering, and the BMW Z4 sDrive35i will also feature 18-inch light-alloy wheels in multispoke design. Added to which, the appeal of the successful two-seater rises still further with the introduction of the new Design Pure Balance equipment package.
