2016 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo Facelift Engines Review

2016 Facelift("Life Cycle Impulse")

For the 2016 model year (beginning production September 2015), the facelift versions were released.

    340i models (using the B58 engine) replace the 335i models (using the N55 engine).
    B47 engine replaces the N47 engine for the 4-cylinder diesel models.
    318i engine changes to the 3-cylinder B38 (therefore, for the first time in its 40-year history, the 318i model is not powered by a 4-cylinder engine)
    other 4-cylinder petrol engines are updated to the B48 engine

Performance

The 2016 BMW 3 Series lineup offers three 4-cylinder turbos: a 2.0-liter in the 320i, a more powerful version in the 328i, and a turbodiesel. There’s the new turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 in 340i models, and the twin-turbo version in the M3. The 335i Gran Turismo retains the previous-gen 6-cylinder. Most models can be ordered with a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic. The M3 comes with the manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. New for 2016 is the 330e plug-in hybrid, which pairs an electric motor and a turbocharged 4-cylinder for 25 miles on battery power alone or total range of 373 miles. Most 3 Series models come with a fuel-saving stop/start feature. Unfortunately it shudders when the engine restarts and thankfully can be deactivated.
