Coming Spring 2014: Two Additional Diesel Engine Models (218d / 225d)

Note: This is from a global press release (not applicable to all markets) (from larger press release).

January 22, 2014

BMW 2 Series Coupe: Two additional diesel engines will be available right after market launch.

The BMW 2 Series Coupe will be setting a new benchmark in sporting performance in the compact segment from March 2014. Immediately after market launch the model portfolio will be extended by two diesel variants. In two additional output categories, the BMW 218d Coupe and the BMW 225d Coupe offer an optimal combination of efficiency and dynamic performance so typical of a BMW. The BMW 218d Coupe features as standard a six-speed manual gearbox. As an option, this model comes with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission. The engine in the BMW 225d Coupe is offered in conjunction with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission.

Both models are powered by a 2-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. On the BMW 218d Coupe, this engine technology incorporates a turbocharger with variable intake geometry and Common Rail direct injection with solenoid valve injectors. A maximum output of 105 kW/143 hp and a maximum torque of 320 Nm help the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.9 seconds (automatic transmission: 8.6 seconds). The average fuel consumption of the BMW 218d Coupe with a manual gearbox is 4.3 to 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres. In conjunction with an automatic transmission, the car consumes 4.2 to 4.4 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres. CO2 emissions are 114 to 119 grams/km (automatic: 111 to 117 grams per kilometre) (figures according to the EU test cycle, depending on selected tyre format).

Multi-stage turbocharging and Common Rail direct injection with piezo injectors help the engine of the BMW 225d Coupe to achieve a maximum output of 160 kW/218 hp and a maximum torque of 450 Nm. This most powerful diesel version of the two-door vehicle sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds. This car combines athletic power performance with exemplary efficiency. The BMW 225d Coupe has an average fuel consumption of 4.7 litres/100 km (CO2 emission level: 124 g/km).

Available in future as a standard feature: Tyre pressure indicator for each individual tyre.

Starting in spring, drivers of a BMW will be warned of a loss of tyre pressure more precisely than ever before. A tyre pressure indicator will be offered as a standard equipment feature on all new vehicles of the brand with the exception of the BMW X6. Sensors on all four tyres facilitate an exact and individual monitoring of the pressure in each individual tyre. The tyre pressure currently at hand will be shown in the Control Display or the instrument cluster, respectively, depending on the model and the equipment options customers have chosen. In the event of a loss of tyre pressure, the driver will be made aware of a possible danger well in advance.

High-speed graphics, additional functions: The new generation of the navigation system Business and the radio Professional.

With enhanced functions and optimised performance, the latest generation of the radio Professional and the navigation system Business is raising comfort and driving pleasure to an even higher level. Both newly revised options will be introduced in the spring of 2014. During the course of 2014, they will also be introduced to the BMW 1 Series, the BMW 2 Series and the BMW 5 Series and will then be available for all models except for the BMW X6. Both systems have a new control unit with boosted computing performance. Thus, for example, Bluetooth audio streaming will be available in the vehicle with the integration of mobile devices as well as additional BMW ConnectedDrive services.

The most significant innovation to the navigation system Business are the graphic images which now generate 10 times faster than before on the 16.5-inch control display. High-resolution maps, which now have 3D elements and animations, and an increased speed when calculating routes characterise the advancement made possible by the optimisation of the control unit technology.

In conjunction with the ConnectedDrive Services option, the navigation system Business can be used in future for the Concierge Services, Real Time Traffic Information and Remote Services. In order to establish the necessary online connections in an optimum manner, the new system uses the 3G standard for mobile telephone networks.

Are the upgrades in terms of tyre pressure monitoring, and high speed graphics available from launch on the 2-series, or is it something we have to wait for during the year?
