BMV introduced the most powerful version of its 3 Series M340i and M340i kDrive. Their public debut will be held at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which starts on November 28.
The sale of a new Bavarian product in Europe will begin next spring. The car price will be announced later.
The BMV M340i has a 3.0-liter gasoline with a power of 385 hp. With this unit, the limousine accelerates to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds. The engine works together with the 8-speed Sport Steptronic automatic transmission. The maximum speed is limited to 250 km / h.
The company presented the new 3 Series at the Paris Motor Show. The dimensions of the sedan are: 4709 mm long, width 1827 mm and height 1442 mm. The car is 85 mm longer, 16 mm wide and 1 mm higher than its predecessor. Wheelbase size increased by 41 mm – up to 2851 mm.
The focus of the BMV Series 3 is 10 mm, and the weight distribution of the shaft is perfect – 50:50. The weight of the sedan is reduced by 55 kg, but at the same time the strength of the body and suspension increases by 15-20%. The company said the new product has the lowest frontal aerodynamic resistance coefficient in its class, which is 0.23.
In addition, the new BMV Series 3 has a completely redesigned suspension – the sedan was the first model of the Bavarian brand with special "smart" shock absorbers.
