Powerful engines ensure unforgettable, dynamic moments, with the portfolio ranging from the sporty and efficient BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder petrol and diesel engines to spirited BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engines and culminating in the M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW M140i.

Whichever engine you choose, you’ll be sure to have a drive train that is unequalled in the compact class. This is due in no small part to the BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, including the Automatic Start/Stop function, Optimum Shift Indicator and Brake Energy Regeneration.
