Immediately following the European market launch, the engine portfolio of the new BMW 3 Series Touring is also being extended. The BMW 328i Touring with 180 kW/245 hp, which was already available from the start, is now being complemented by a second petrol-driven variant - the 135 kW/184 hp BMW 320i Touring, which also fulfils the EU6 emission standard. The range of diesel models, which previously comprised the BMW 330d Touring with 190 kW/258 hp and the BMW 320d Touring with 135 kW/184 hp, is being supplemented by the BMW 318d Touring and the BMW 316d Touring. The new models are all fitted with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, with the option of an eight-speed automatic transmission for each model.
The 2-litre engine featured in the new petrol-driven model is also equipped with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology, maximum torque being 270 Nm. The new BMW 320i Touring accelerates from 0 to 100 km in 7.5 seconds and has a top speed of 233 km/h (automatic: 228 km/h). With average fuel consumption between 6.1 and 6.2 litres/100 km and CO2 emission between 143 and 145 grams per km, levels are even lower in conjunction with the automatic transmission than those of the model with a manual transmission, which are between 6.4 litres and 6.5 litres/100 km and between 149 and 152 grams per km (figures as per the EU test cycle, depending on selected tyre format).
