The BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engines in the BMW 1 Series (5-door).
Mature but not at the end of the development cycle: the combustion engine still holds considerable potential.
With every new generation of engines the BMW engineers set new benchmarks to increase dynamics and efficiency. And this is also true of the petrol engines in the BMW 1 Series. The newly developed BMW TwinPower Turbo 1.6-litre petrol engine used for the first time in the BMW 114i, 116i and 118i gets down to work particularly efficiently. This new drive unit with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology combines a TwinScroll turbocharger with Valvetronic, twin Vanos and High Precision Injection. The intelligent technology package produces impressive performance values and a high torque while substantially reducing fuel consumption. As a result, the BMW 118i with 125 kW (170 hp) accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 s with an average fuel consumption of 5.9 to
5.7 l/100km and CO2 emissions of 137 to 132 g/km.
The BMW 116i also offers dynamic driving values with 100 kW (136 hp), low consumption of 5.6 to 5.4 litres per 100 kilometres and just 131 to 125 g/km CO2 emissions. With an average consumption of just 5.7 to 5.5 l/100 km CO2 emissions from 132 to 127 g/km, BMW 114i is the most economical BMW 1 Series petrol engine. Despite its low consumption it delivers a powerful 75 kW (102 hp) and reaches the 100 km/h mark in just 11.2 seconds.
The BMW 125i guarantees sportiness as well as sustainable driving pleasure: the BMW TwinPower Turbo 2.0-litre engine boasts a powerful 310 Nm of torque and 160 kW (218 hp). This performance accelerates the BMW 125i from 0 to
100 km/h in 6.4 seconds with average consumption of 6.6 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 154 g/km.
All four-cylinder petrol engines in the standard BMW 1 Series 5-door already fulfil the EU6 emission norm that only comes into effect in 2014.
