2012 Bmw 3-Series (F30): engine range revealed

Article by Christian A., on October 2, 2011

The F30BMW 3-Series will be launched on October 14, in Munich, Germany, and will arrive at European showrooms next spring, according to Auto Bild. This exciting new model was not featured during the recently held Frankfurt Motor Show. The new 3er relies exclusively on turbocharged engines.

The entry-level 316i has an output of 136hp and is priced at EUR29,000 in Germany. The 320i, which delivers 184hp, will come next. Then it will be the 245hp 328i that will arrive next.

These models are powered by four-cylinder engines. However, there’s a 3.0-liter straight six with twin turbos on the 335i, which delivers 306hp. Those who prefer to burn oil would want to begin with 316d, which delivers 115 hp.

Meanwhile, a four-cylinder 323d will replace the existing six-pot 325d. The car will also be getting a six-cylinder diesel; however, the details are undisclosed for now.

What’s new is that it is where the Active Hybrid 3 will be introduced. It will combine the 3.0-liter petrol straight six with an electric motor that will offer a total of 340 hp. In comparison, the E46 M3 provides 343hp.
