BMW will be adding a number of new engines and options to its 1 Series and 3 Series ranges before the year is out.
As well as presenting a new entry point for its 1 Series range this November, BMW will be releasing its first petrol car to make use of its EfficientDynamics engine on top of a trio of updates for the 3 Series Touring collection.
With so much planned by the German car manufacturer in the weeks ahead, here is a look at each of the additions in a little more detail.
BMW 114d Sports Hatch
The number of diesel engines being presented in the BMW 1 Series is being boosted with the arrival of the 114d Sports Hatch this November.
Drivers will be presented with a 1.6-litre version of the four-cylinder diesel engine, which can achieve a maximum of 95hp, a maximum torque of 235Nm, accelerate from 0 to 62mph in just 12.2 seconds and record a top speed of 115mph.
The German car maker is also bringing a raft of BMW EfficientDynamics features to the 114d Sports Hatch, including Auto Start-Stop technology, Brake Engine Regeneration and electromechanical power steering, to name but a few.
BMW 3 Series Saloon engine update
The BMW 3 Series Saloon is to soon receive a new addition in the form of the BMW 320i EfficientDynamics model.
Hidden under the bonnet of this car is a 1.6-litre TwinPower Turbo petrol engine which can generate up to 170hp and achieve 250Nm of torque.
Zero to 62mph takes just 7.6 seconds, in another standout specification, while revised gear ratios and optimised aerodynamics are sure to appeal to motorists as well.
The BMW 320i EfficientDynamics ticks the boxes where energy efficiency is concerned too, delivering 53.3mpg and emitting just 124g/km of CO2.
BMW 3 Series Touring additions
When the 320i, 318d and 316d engine updates are released for the BMW 3 Series Touring range this winter, the collection will boast two petrol and four diesel options.
The 320i model is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine and can generate a maximum of 184hp and up to 27oNm of torque. Zero to 62mph in just 7.5 seconds. A top speed of 145mph is sure to catch the eye too.
Meanwhile, both the 318d and 316d are designed with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.
However, the 316d engine is limited to 116hp and 260Nm torque, while the 318d can perform 143hp and 320Nm of torque for those after a little bit more power.
