BMW has introduced a new diesel engine for its 2-Series Coupe model.
The Bavarian manufacturer has replaced the 2.0-liter diesel unit in the 220d Coupe with a new power plant with the same displacement. Equipped with BMW’s TwinPower Turbo technology and generating 190 PS (140 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, the B47 diesel works with a either a revised 8-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual.
When fitted with the automatic, the car does the 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in only 7 seconds, while the average fuel consumption is rated between 4.1 and 3.8 l/100 km (61.8 to 57.3 mpg UK).
If equipped with the 6-speed manual gearbox, the 220d Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) 0.1 seconds slower (7.1 seconds) and averages between 4.4 to 4.1 l/100 km (57.3 to 53.5 mpg).
