A slew of new developments in both performance and technology will be making their way into the majority of BMW’s core models over this summer, meaning it’s time to start looking at your trade-in value and prepare for a newer, faster, leaner machine.
A press release issued by the marque today announced the upgrades for the 1 Series, 2 Series, 3 Series, 4 Series and 5 Series, with special additions for the Z4, X5 and M235i xDrive Convertible. The changes range from the availability of new paint colors, to the optimized efficiency of new three- and four-cylinder engines.
Available beginning in July, the 1 Series will feature a new three-cylinder engine. While it may only produce 136 hp, its gas mileage is an extraordinary 54 miles per gallon. The 2 Series Coupe and Convertible will both have a new four-cylinder diesel engine available, meaning there will now be seven engine options for these models, four of which use gas and three that use diesel. The M235i xDrive Convertible will see the first use of intelligent four-wheel-drive tech in a compact convertible sports car.
A new four-cylinder engine features TwinPower Turbo technology for the 3 Series Gran Turismo, 4 Series Convertible, 4 Series Gran Coupe and X5.
In terms of new exterior options, Champagne Quartz metallic and Smokey Topaz metallic are now paint options for the 4 Series and M4. The Z4 Roadster will have Estoril Blue metallic available this July as well. Set for introduction in the near future is a Tanzanite Blue metallic paint for the 5 Series Sedan and Gran Turismo.
