BMW 3 Gran Turismo vs 4 Gran Coupe

When Apple decided to reveal the iPad in 2010, BMW decided to offer something unique, too. The result was the BMW 5GT. However, unlike the iPad, the BMW 5 GT didn’t sell well, and also it was based on the 7-Series despite its 5-Series badge.

However, BMW continued to focus on the Gran Turismo concept and extended this to the 3-Series. Basically, it developed the 3-Series sedan model into a four-door coupé. With a coupé style roof, smaller rear doors and frameless door windows the 3-Series Gran Turismo was designed for people who really wanted a coupé, but did not want the coupé-style drive train or were influenced by a coupé’s space restrictions.

Although I didn’t really appreciate this approach, I liked the idea. There are many families who would like to have a coupé, but need space, and they can’t afford to buy a Maserati Quattroporte. Thus, the BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo makes sense.

What about the 4-Series Gran Coupé? For those people who can’t have a coupé due to its space restrictions, but still wish to own a coupé? And those who would like to have a four-door with a sporty drive train? That’s where the problem starts. The 4-Series Gran Coupé is a car that is not supposed to be there. I know the 3 Gran Turismo is not a proper coupé, and it is between a sedan and a real estate, but it still has the coupé touches. It still overlaps with the 4-Series Gran Coupé.

These two cars are eating their own market. I know the 4-Series will have a sportier character and the 3-Series will be more comfort focused. However, the differences between these two cars are so small that it is extremely difficult to differentiate them for an average customer. And I am sure, people will go for the 4-Series Gran Coupé, because it is a 4-Series and choose the 3-Series Gran Turismo because it is 3-Series. Ultimately, the 3-Series Gran Turismo and the 4-Series Gran Coupé will take each other’s market share, and probably, one of the cars will disappear.

Grey is a BMW 4-Series Gran Coupé. Blue is a 3-Series Gran Turismo.

New BMW G30 5-Series is Revealed

BMW has just revealed the new 5-Series (G30) just few minutes ago. As I am very excited with the new 5-Series, I had added the whole official photos and the press release. I will amend this article in few days time and summarise.

Please accept my apologise for the press release attachment.

BMW 5-Series Press Release

Superior driving pleasure and unsurpassed aerodynamics.
Rigorous application of the BMW EfficientLightweight lightweight design concept, with increased use of aluminium and high-strength steels, reduces the weight of the 5 Series Sedan by up to 100 kilograms from that of its predecessor. The newly designed chassis, a low centre of gravity, BMW’s hallmark even weight distribution and a lightweight body offering exceptional torsional stiffness combine a wonderfully dynamic driving experience with the long-distance comfort for which the BMW 5 Series is renowned. Various chassis options such as Integral Active Steering, which can now be teamed with xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive, add further talents to a dynamics-focused overall package designed to ensure the BMW 5 Series once again stands at the top of its class. The drag coefficient of the new, 4,935 millimetre-long BMW 5 Series Sedan (Cd = 0.22 at its most efficient) sets the benchmark in its class.

The next step to automated driving.
A wealth of assistance systems are on hand in the new BMW 5 Series to offer the driver unbeatable support – not only at critical moments but also in less demanding situations at the wheel, such as traffic jams, slow-moving traffic and monotonous stretches of motorway. To this end, it is fitted as standard with a stereo camera, which teams up with optional radar and ultrasound sensors to monitor the area around the car. New features in the BMW 5 Series alongside the evasion aid and Crossing traffic warning are the Lane Change Assistant and Lane keeping assistant with active side collision protection. The latter keeps an eye on the lane markings and the area around the car, and actively helps the driver to avoid looming collisions by applying corrective steering inputs.

The BMW 5 Series also takes another step towards automated driving with extended functions for the optional Active Cruise Control (ACC) system and Steering and Lane keeping assistant. These include adoption of speed restrictions, which the optional Intelligent Speed Assist communicates to the cruise control system (the driver can adjust this figure by +/– 15 km/h / 9 mph). From rest to 210 km/h (130 mph), the car can relieve the driver of acceleration, braking and steering duties, as desired. The intelligent Auto Start Stop function now adjusts its responses to the route and traffic conditions and therefore offers even greater driving comfort.

Intuitive usability and extensive comfort.
With even greater user-friendliness as its goal, the new BMW 5 Series is equipped with the latest-generation iDrive system. In top specification, it displays navigation, telephone and entertainment features, plus vehicle functions, on a high-resolution 10.25-inch screen. The system can be operated using the iDrive Controller, by voice command or gestures, or by touching the display controls directly, as the driver wishes. The large, tile-style panels can be arranged as desired and show the content of the underlying menus in constantly updated form. The latest-generation full-colour BMW Head-Up Display has a projection surface that is 70 per cent larger than before and displays traffic signs, telephone listings, radio stations, music tracks, navigation instructions and warnings from the assistance systems.

Maximising the levels of on-board comfort are extended storage options, greater legroom for rear-seat passengers and comfort seats with massage function, not to mention innovative seat operation using touch sensors and four-zone climate control complete with ionisation and discreet air fragrancing. Special Synergy Thermoacoustic Capsule (SYNTAK) engine encapsulation technology, the acoustic glazing for the windscreen and the acoustic headliner bring about another noticeable reduction in noise levels inside the car. All headlight variants specified for the BMW 5 Series Sedan come as standard with LED technology. Available as an option are Adaptive LED Headlights with variable light distribution including adaptive roundabout lights and BMW Selective Beam anti-dazzle high beam with a range of up to 500 metres.

Advanced link-up of man, machine and environment.
The new BMW 5 Series also offers a compelling proposition in terms of connectivity. Extensive BMW ConnectedDrive features are joined by new services which lavish business travellers with extra comfort and save them time. These include the new ParkNow technology for digital parking space reservation and payment, the On-Street Parking Information intelligent parking space search function and the optional Parking Assistant, which detects empty spots and parks the vehicle automatically. Plus, the Microsoft Exchange service now enables Microsoft Office 365 users to sync emails, calendar entries and contacts and edit them inside their car. Meanwhile, the optional Remote Parking system allows the BMW 5 Series Sedan to be manoeuvred into even the tightest parking spaces remotely using the car key. And smartphone integration has been further improved – from Apple CarPlay (which, in a first for a carmaker, has been incorporated fully wirelessly), to inductive phone charging and the WiFi hotspot for up to ten devices.

Personalised content through BMW Connected Onboard.
BMW Connected, the personal digital mobility assistant from BMW, has been available in Europe since July 2016. The next development stage of the system, complete with additional services, is set to be introduced with the new BMW 5 Series. BMW Connected Onboard gives drivers an overview of their mobility-related information. Relevant content such as the upcoming navigation destinations and estimated arrival time recorded in their personal mobility agenda are transferred seamlessly into the car from their smartphone and displayed on the personalised screen. Remote 3D View allows drivers to call up three-dimensional views of the area around their car on their smartphone while on the move. And that means they need never lose sight of their car.

BMW 530i and BMW 540i: the new petrol engines.
All the engines in the 5 Series Sedan line-up belong to the newly developed, modular BMW EfficientDynamics family of power units. BMW TwinPower Turbo technology imbues all the members of the family with outstanding performance combined with exceptional efficiency. Two diesel engines and two petrol variants will be available from launch, working in tandem with either rear-wheel drive or BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive.

The new two-litre four-cylinder in-line engine in the BMW 530i develops peak torque of 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) and maximum output of 185 kW/252 hp. Its fuel consumption in the combined cycle comes in at 5.4 litres/100 km (52.3 mpg imp)*, which means CO2 emissions of 126 g/km – down more than 11 per cent on its predecessor’s figures. The BMW 530i accelerates from 0 ‑ 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

The flagship engine at launch will be the 250 kW/340 hp unit under the bonnet of the new BMW 540i. This three-litre straight-six produces torque of 450 Nm (332 lb-ft). Despite its extra output and sharper dynamic edge, average fuel consumption stands at only 6.5 l/100 km (43.5 mpg imp) and CO2 emissions are kept to just 150 g/km*. In xDrive guise, the BMW 540i powers from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in a mere 4.8 seconds.

BMW 520d and BMW 530d: the new diesel engines.
The four-cylinder diesel engine powering the BMW 520d develops 140 kW/190 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are 4.1 l/100 km (68.9 mpg imp)* and 108 g/km with the manual gearbox specified or 4.0 l/100 km (70.6 mpg imp)* and 107 g/km with the eight-speed Steptronic transmission. The sedan accelerates from 0 ‑ 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.6 seconds (Steptronic). Top speed is 237 km/h (147 mph).

* Fuel consumption figures were calculated according to the EU test cycle and may vary depending on the tyre format specified. Some figures are provisional.

The new BMW 530d likewise does a nice line in dynamics and efficiency. Producing 195 kW/265 hp and peak torque of 620 Nm (457 lb-ft), the six-cylinder in-line unit is clearly superior to the equivalent model in the outgoing range. And yet the BMW 530d also makes do with average fuel consumption of 4.5 l/100 km (62.8 mpg imp)* and CO2 emissions of 118 g/km – an approximately 13 per cent improvement on its predecessor. The new BMW 530d races from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.7 seconds, and on to an electronically governed 250 km/h (155 mph).

The CO2 champion, the plug-in hybrid and the eight-cylinder sports star.
Not long after the launch of the new 5 Series Sedan, BMW will be adding another three engine variants to the line-up. The 140 kW/190 hp four-cylinder diesel engine will be presented in its most efficient form in the BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Edition with eight-speed Steptronic. Its CO2 emissions of just 102 g/km are the lowest in the sedan’s class (average fuel consumption: 3.9 l/100 km [72.4 mpg imp]*).

Also to come in March 2017 is a BMW 5 Series Sedan with plug-in hybrid drive system, in the form of the BMW 530e iPerformance. The combination of the BMW eDrive electric drive concept and a four-cylinder petrol engine produces extremely low CO2 emissions of just 46 g/km (2.0 l/100 km)*. System output is 185 kW/252 hp.

In March 2017 the BMW M550i xDrive will take over as the sporting highlight of the new BMW 5 Series range, for the time being at least. Its V8 engine – developing 340 kW/462 hp and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque – impresses not only with its remarkable performance but also when it comes to efficiency (fuel consumption, combined: 8.9 l/100 km [31.7 mpg imp], CO2 emissions 204 g/km*). The BMW M550i xDrive dispatches the 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in 4.0 seconds.

* Fuel consumption figures were calculated according to the EU test cycle and may vary depending on the tyre format specified. Some figures are provisional.

BMW 740e iPerformance

It is finally here. A plug-in BMW 7-Series, BMW 740e iPerformance. I know some of you are really excited and some of you would never think of owning one. If you live in London or live in a country with a very high tax bracket for larger engines, this car will be your favourite.

Unlike the Mercedes-Benz S500e, the BMW 740e iPerformance offers an all-wheel drive option! It is called the 740Le xDrive. Also, BMW is nearly 200-kg lighter! THAN WHAT? Regarding the all-wheel drive, the short-wheel base is stuck with a rear-wheel drive.

Let’s discuss the numbers. The rest of the car is like the normal BMW 7-Series. The 740e is powered by a 2-lt TwinTurbo petrol engine with 258HP and 400 nm (you can find the same engine inside a MINI Cooper S) and the electric motor generates 113 HP and 250 nm. The combination of these two engines generate 326 PS and 500 nm. The engines are coupled with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The 0-100 km/h acceleration is 5.4 sec (5.3 for the xDrive) and the top speed is limited to 250 km/h!

The range of electric drive is around 44 – 48 km (41 – 45 km xDrive). In terms of CO2 emissions, if you live in London you will love these values! 45-50 gr (49 – 56 gr for xDrive). Consumption is 2 – 2.2-lt (2.1 – 2.5-lt xDrive). These values are really impressive!

How long does the 740e need for charging? Only 4 hours with your house plug and 3 hours with the BMW iWall! The battery capacity is 9.2 kWh.

The rest of the 740e iPerformance is the same as the normal 7-Series. Is it worth buying? If you love V8 engines, you will never ever like this car. However, if you would like to enjoy the BMW 7-Series and don’t worry with the taxes, this is the perfect car for you.

To be honest, I would go for a 740Le xDrive iPerformance. It offers everything you need from semi-autonomous driving to high tech driving assistance systems to all-drive system and super exciting consumption figures. I know the 7-Series is a massive car, but it will be a great ride for long journeys.

BMW M760Li xDrive Not M7 Yet

A few hours ago, BMW announced the M760Li xDrive. For the first time, the 7-Series will be wearing a M-badge from the BMW M-Division. We have been waiting for this for a very long time and as the press document has just been released, I am sharing the technical details directly.

To wrap up; we all have been waiting for the BMW M7, instead we have the M760Li which is better than we were expecting. The vehicle offers 600 HP from a 6.6-lt V12 engine and develops 800Nm of torque at just 1500 rpm. This means, M760Li will accelerate like nothing else on this planet.

Here are the press release details:


“With the new BMW M760Li xDrive, the freshly launched new BMW 7 Series is gaining a prestigious flagship model. Headlined by its exceptional refinement and supreme power delivery at all times, the 12-cylinder petrol engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology under the bonnet reinforces the new car’s range-topping status. The boldly dynamic driving characteristics of the BMW M760Li xDrive combine with superior ride comfort to make a compelling statement and set a new benchmark in the luxury sedan segment.

The new BMW M760Li xDrive gives a debut to the new M Performance TwinPower Turbo 12-cylinder petrol engine. Concealed under a cover bearing “M Performance” lettering, the 6.6-litre V12 develops output of 441 kW/600 hp* at 5,500 rpm* and peak torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft)* at 1,500 rpm* (fuel consumption combined: 12.6 l/100 km [22.4 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 294 g/km)**. The high-performance unit with leading-edge M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology accelerates the BMW M760Li xDrive from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds* on the way to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

If the optional M Driver’s Package is specified, the speed limiter doesn’t cut in until 305 km/h (189 mph). Power transfer is via the state-of-the-art eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission as standard. The M Performance-specific tuning of the shift programs, delivering sportier gear changes and more instantaneous downshifts throughout the rev range, has been specially adapted to the characteristics of the V12 engine. With its optimal internal efficiency and a gear-change strategy assisted by navigation data, the eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission contributes to the authoritative driving experience and works seamlessly with the standard Auto Start Stop function.”

The New BMW 730i with a 2-lt Petrol Engine

The 2-lt petrol engine in a BMW 7-Series? It sounds a bit bizarre, but it is now on the market. BMW recently revealed the new 7-Series with many state-of-the-art technologies that will envy the top-spec Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

The innovations of the new 7-Series are not limited to technological features. Now, the 7-Series is available with a 2-lt petrol-powered turbo engine, called the 730i/730iL. You might be thinking that I am making a massive mistake and that I do not understand the fundamentals of the BMW, as 730i should mean that it is a 3-lt petrol engine.

However, the world has changed, and the BMW has changed as well. Nowadays, the badge at the rear of the car is only for branding and does not represent the true engine. BMW has been doing this for a very long time. The 328i is not a 2.8-lt, and the 340i is not a 4-lt.

The story is the same here, the 730i/730iL is targeted for markets where the taxation is very heavy on the larger engines, and people change their preferences or move to another brand like the 2-lt Jaguar XJ. In order to capture this market, BMW uses turbo technology to boost the tiny engines and offers the same performance of the 730i badge with a tax friendly engine. And it produces 258 HP!

Unfortunately, these types of engines are not available on the global market. Usually, they are available to unique markets. Generally, you can often spot different engine ranges in China.

Anyway, in case you are wondering, there is a new BMW 730i with a 2-lt petrol engine! The proof is here!

BMW i3 Experience in Istanbul

During my summer vacation back home in Turkey, I had the chance to drive the BMW i3 in Istanbul. First, the BMW i3 offers a massive interior space that cannot be found in the 3-Series. This massive space includes the rear passenger area as well. Regarding the instrument panel, unlike other BMW models, it is very clean simple. However, when you get inside the i3, you won’t feel alienated by the centre console.

However, the gear lever is a bit tricky, but you will become used to it very easily. When you start the engine, there is no engine noise. So, don’t be surprised by the silence. Your nearly 10-year old MacBook Pro may generate more noise when you run it!

The surprise comes when you accelerate; the i3 has a unique throttle pedal. When the drive mode is in ECO or ECO Pro, the throttle pedal gives a breaking effect when you lift the throttle. How does this happen? As soon as you lift your foot from the throttle, the regenerative brakes engage heavily and the i3 starts to slowdown. The break pedal isn’t used, if you are not driving aggressively.

Personally, I always thought they should combine the throttle and brake pedals into one pedal and reduce the braking distance. The BMW i3 offers something similar to this. The only downside is that you can’t rest your foot. As soon as you lift the throttle, the i3 slows down dramatically. If you are not happy with this function, you need to shift to the comfort mode. However, this mode will reduce the range of the i3.

The other amazing feature of the i3 is the turning circle. If you think the London Black Cab has a great turning circle, you haven’t driven the i3. The front-end of the car does not have any mechanical parts, and this leaves considerable room for a massive turning circle! You can easily make U-turns in places smaller than your living room.

The driving character, acceleration, and handling satisfy the expectations of the BMW brand. Thanks to the battery pack underneath, the body reduces the centre of gravity and improves the driving experience. I didn’t feel the height of the vehicle while driving. The downside is that there is literally no room for a boot. It is tiny, and you don’t have space for a spare wheel. I would highly suggest getting your own tiny spare wheel for emergencies.

In the end, the BMW i3 is a great car! If you are planning to buy one, get it with the range extender and enjoy the i3 without any range anxiety.

Facelifted New BMW 7-Series

Usually I don’t write about this type of topics but recently facelifted new BMW 7-Series was caught on a public road. It is rumoured that, new BMW 7-Series may feature leather covered engine bay, instead of plastic cover. I really wonder how BMW will manage to keep the leather free of dust and dirt.

The facelifted 7-Series looks really fresh and attractive. However, there are not reliable information regarding to technical details at the moment.
