BMW has just announced new changes of enhancements to the 2011 3 Series Coupe and Convertible, including not only new style updates for 328i and 335i models but also a new engine for 335i models. All car comes with the rear-wheel drive with the near-perfect 50-50 weight distribution, which gives remarkably precise steering, and skillfully engineered suspension. The xDrive is available on the Coupe models.
The new profile of the BMW 3 Series Coupe and Convertible is instantly recognizable at first glance. With new design of the headlights, the enhanced depth and detail of the taillights, the interior, and even the exterior mirrors were specifically created for the Coupe and Convertible to give the car a sporty style.
All-new redesigned engine for the 335i model with designated stamp of the “N55.” The engine is a turbocharged, all-aluminum engine from the same “short block” and 3.0-liter displacement of its predecessor that was developed and refined for five years. The result is an engine that is more responsive, more fuel efficient, and cleaner-running than its outstanding predecessor. The new engine from the 2011 BMW 3 Series Coupe can output about 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque at 7,000 rpm redline. The 6-speed manual gearbox remains standard with 6-speed Steptronic automatic is optional, but now featuring “pull-style” shift paddles on the multifunction steering wheel.
For the Coupes
The 2011 BMW 335i xDrive Coupe combines intelligent all-wheel drive with the power of BMW’s new 300-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 engine. The 2011 BMW 328i xDrive Coupe will help driving on a wet or snow-covered road, which the xDrive automatically sends more torque to the axle with more traction. The 2011 BMW 328i gets a 230-hp, 3.0-liter inline-6 engine featuring magnesium-aluminum construction.
The 2011 3 Series Coupe and Convertible models will go on sale in Spring 2010, and pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
