From the summer of 2013, a new top-of-the-range diesel model for the BMW 3 Series also featuring BMW xDrive will become available. The BMW 335d xDrive uses a straight six cylinder diesel engine under the bonnet producing 313 hp and 630 Nm of torque.
With a curb weight of 1630 kg, the power-to-weight ratio is 5.2 kilograms per hp.
When it goes on sale this summer in Europe, the BMW 335d xDrive will have a base price of 49,900 Euros, this includes a standard eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and the intelligent all-wheel drive system. The new twin-turbo diesel is only 2,650 euros more expensive than a BMW 330d xDrive while the 335i xDrive with a 306-hp twin-turbo gasoline engine and automatic transmission costs 1,300 euros less.
The twin-turbo diesel accelerates from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.8 seconds with a standard fuel consumption of 5.4 liters per 100 km (43.5 mpg).
