Lighter, faster, more powerful, more efficient: no other element of an automobile defines its character as much as its engine. The all-new straight six-cylinder petrol engine, constructed from a combination of magnesium and aluminium, sets new standards for dynamic engineering. The TwinPower Turbo engine runs with a sophisticated smoothness that belies its massive power output. The powerplant in the BMW 335i with Twin Scroll turbocharger, Valvetronic and direct petrol injection releases up to 225 kW (306 hp) on command, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds.
Combined fuel consumption: 7.2 to 9.1 l/100 km
Combined CO2 emissions: 168 to 212 g/km
