The engine line-up for the BMW 4 Series range (Coupé, Convertible and Gran Coupé), has been refreshed. The flagship engine has been reinvented and improved once again to create a new six-cylinder in-line unit with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, with a maximum output of 240kW, an increase of 15kW from the previous generation.
In the new BMW 440 the engine channels its power through an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard. With a 0.2 second improvement, the BMW 440 Coupé accelerates from zero to 100km/h in just 5.0 seconds, the BMW 440i Convertible completes the same sprint in 6.3 seconds and the BMW 440 Gran Coupé posts a figure of 5.1 seconds. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are both reduced by up to 12 per cent and now stand at 6,6 l/100km and 154g/km for the BMW 440i Coupé, for the BMW 440i Convertible 5,9 l/100km and 159 g/km, for the BMW 440i Gran Coupé 7,5l/100km and 154g/km. The BMW 440i replaces the BMW 435i.
