Innovative petrol and diesel engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology are at the heart of every BMW. They combine the latest injection systems, fully variable performance control and innovative turbocharger technology.


Whether petrol or diesel, with three, four or six cylinders – the BMW EfficientDynamics engine family offers significantly more agile power delivery, with a spontaneous response even in the low rev range and, at the same time, excellent fuel economy and low emissions. The increased efficiency and optimum dynamics guarantee intensive driving pleasure.

Even better performance, even lower consumption: the M TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder petrol engine.

BMW M4 Coupé:
fuel consumption (combined) in l/100 km: 8.8 [8.3]
COemissions (combined) in g/km: 204 [194]

Incredibly powerful. Incredibly efficient.

The M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder diesel engine combines CommonRail direct injection and unique three-stage turbocharging with variable turbine geometry. An extremely spontaneous response, high torque even at low revs and a wide rev range characterise this unique engine.


The eight-speed Steptronic transmission produces perfect power delivery, reduces fuel consumption and boosts sportiness and dynamics:

Watch the film on Launch Control in the BMW 2 Series Coupé.
The eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission allows a significantly higher level of gear-changing and driving comfort thanks to the smaller gear ratios and minimised rev intervals. This combines maximum comfort with impressive dynamics and reduced fuel consumption. Plus, with Launch Control, your BMW will impress from the word go, even when it’s standing still. Give the Dynamic Stability Control button one short press, slide the gear lever into ‘S’, set the brakes and activate the kick-down function with the accelerator – now release the brakes and find out what torque really means.

Fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions

BMW i8:
Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 2.1
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 49
Combined electricity consumption in kWh/100 km: 11.9
Figures outside brackets refer to the basic model with transmission as per the basic equipment; figures in brackets refer to the model with optionally available transmission (see special equipment).
The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected.
Further information on the official fuel consumption and on the official specific CO2 emissions of new automobiles can be found in the guidelines on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of new automobiles which are available free of charge at all retailers.
