BMW TwinPower Turbo engines in the BMW 1 Series 5-door.

The latest injection technologies, fully variable valve control and turbocharging – that is the recipe for success of the BMW EfficientDynamics engine family. With petrol and diesel variants alike, torque rises to a sporty peak even at low revs. However, when it comes to fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, the BMW 1 Series keeps an admirably low profile – particularly the BMW 116d EfficientDynamics Edition.

The latest generation BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engines feature remarkably agile power delivery and excellent responsiveness, even at low engine speeds. At the same time they are more efficient, with fewer emissions and better performance than their predecessors. These innovative engines combine the latest fuel injection technology and fully variable valve control including Double-VANOS with state-of-the-art turbocharger technology and represents a milestone in the BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy. The result is a particularly efficient drive train, which emphasises the renowned BMW engine prowess.
