BMW 1er (2007)
The joy in driving was established also in the compact class. Now it is again increased. New BMW 1er its world premiere celebrated new engines, purposeful modifications at the Exterieurdesign and an attractive reorganization of its interior for the prelude of the international automobile salon in Geneva with a second Karosserievariante. For the first time is to be had BMW 1er then also as Dreitürer. The new model variant sits down with its sporty-elegant collateral line and with particularly agilen handling characteristics in scene.
A maximum of efficient dynamics reaches BMW 1er - both and three and and Fünftürer - with the new generation of four-cylinder engines. For additional achievement and singular economy an aluminum crank case and a new Common Rail injection system for the Diesel drives as well as the High Precision Injection, a Direkteinspritzung of the 2 provide. Generation, with the Benzinern. In addition the new engines with Brake Energy regeneration, car start stop function and switching point announcement are combined.
A class for itself is in the compact segment also in the future BMW 130i. Its row six cylinder engine with magnesium aluminium group crank case and VALVETRONIC technology carries 265 HP for 195 KW out and makes now also the three-door model variant BMW of the 1er absolute top-class sportsman.
With more than 200,000 sold units world-wide BMW 1er in the compact segment made to measure put a start down. Engine in front, power transmission to the rear wheels - in such a way reads the concept for maximum driving joy, which led also in this class to success. For the first time the functionality of a handy diagonal tail sedan with the typical handling characteristics BMW was combined. Now the first - and still only - compact vehicle with rear propulsion provides again for sensation. The new three-door variant emphasizes the dynamics of the propulsion principle already at first sight still more clearly.
The body Design of the Dreitürers stresses the long front and shifts the optical emphasis clearly to the rear axle. The side view is coined/shaped by the long door with its frameless disk and the undivided rear side window. This dynamic adjustment of the Design underlines the sporty character of the Dreitürers.
Expression by Kraft: New accents at front and tail
Also the purposeful modifications in the front and tail range let the new BMW 1er appear still stronger and more characteristic. Show the three and the fünftürige variant a uniform face, in whose center the again arranged and increased BMW kidney stands.
In addition come a again outlined verge of the headlights into the bumper unit, a darker frame of the lights, a broader air intake in the lower range of the front apron, a strengthened spoiler lip and a new trim. More saliently formed are also the optional fog headlights.
Also at the tail the dominance of horizontal running lines lets the new BMW 1er appear broad and stronger. In a new, strongly minted light edge of the tail apron the process of the lateral Schwellerlinien is continued and the form of the front spoiler lip is again taken up.
Characteristic are still the proportions singular in the compact segment, which owes BMW 1er of his long front and the carried back passenger space. Particularly in the three-door execution this sporty shaping is intensively stressed. The new Karosserievariante provides therefore everywhere for attention, where mobility is closely with Spontaneität and joy in driving linked.
The momentumful outline of the side view becomes thereby the symbol for a particularly temperful appearance in the streetscape. The optional chrome volume, which frames the stretched window areas, underlines this impression.
Service provider: The six cylinder engine BMW of the 130i
BMW 1er brings the fascination BMW with the practical advantages of a compact vehicle in agreement. That applies in special way to BMW the 130i.
Its 3.0 litre large row six cylinder engine with magnesium aluminium group crank case, VALVETRONIC and double VANOS mobilizes 195 KW of 265 HP.
This Kraftpotenzial leads the high efficiency of the row six-cylinder made possible at the same time to outstanding road performances (0-100 km/h limited in 6.0 seconds with the Dreitürer and/or 6.1 seconds with the Fünftürer, maximum speed electronically on 250 km/h), an economy exemplary in this performance class. BMW 130i three and and use Fünftürer of on the average 8.3 litres per 100 of kilometers in the European Union test cycle both and.
For increased efficiency provides among other things the Brake Energy regeneration, which not only into BMW the 130i is used, but into all new petrol engine and Diesel variants BMW of the 1er. It makes it possible to concentrate the production of electricity for the electrical system alone on the thrust and brake phases of the engine. Thus is to more driving power in the course enterprise, for example with accelerating, for conversion to driving dynamics at the disposal.
Car start stop function: 0 consumption with 0 km/h
To the more efficient fuel use also the car start stop function contributes, which for the handswitched versions BMW of the 1er in connection with the new four-cylinder gasoline and - at the disposal is to diesel engines. In order to use this new function, it is sufficient, to bring when holding before a traffic light or also in the back-up the shift lever in no-load operation position and release the clutch pedal. The engine is then turned off and activated immediately again automatically only with the renewed footstep on the clutch pedal. The car start stop function makes it possible to avoid the consumption of fuel during the stop of the vehicle.
Also while driving the new four-cylinder variants BMW of the 1er make a particularly efficient utilization for the fuel energy possible. As soon as the possibility exists to be consumption favorable in a higher course and with lower number of revolutions on the way the new switching point announcement the driver refers to the ideal time for an appropriate change of the drive position.
A lighting up arrow symbol in connection with the course announcement in the instrument combination serves as December width units, but unmistakable signal for switching.
With High Precision Injection: The new four-cylinder petrol engines
Brake Energy regeneration, car start stop function and switching point announcement cause an additional consumption optimization with already generally the new four-cylinder aggregates aligned to highest efficiency.
In the new BMW 1er are used equivalent 2 variants of the new petrol engine generation. They have a gasoline direct injection of the 2. Generation. With their the lean enterprise in such a way specified, with which the gasoline portion in the air/fuel mixture is extremely economically proportioned, can be made by a particularly far reading and speed range away. Therefore leads the new, as High Precision Injection designated technology in practice everyday life traffic to a clear consumption reduction.
2 performance levels four-cylinder direct A SPLASHEs in the new BMW 1er
In the new BMW 120i produces the 2.0 litre engine an output of 125 KW 170 HP. Thus accelerates new BMW 120i in only 7.7 seconds (Fünftürer: 7.8 seconds) of 0 to 100 km/h. It reaches its maximum speed in both Karosserievarianten with 224 km/h.
Despite these impressive values the new engine in the EUTestzyklus is content with a fuel consumption of 6,4 litres per 100 of kilometers with both Karosserievarianten. In the comparison to the predecessor engine with outside air/fuel mixture this means 20 HP a consumption reduction with an achievement output of 15 KW around scarcely 14 per cent.
Similarly impressively the progress precipitates with the new BMW 118i. With an output made possible of 105 KW of 143 HP its engine an acceleration of zero on 100 km/h in 8.7 seconds (Fünftürer: 8.8 seconds) and a maximum speed of in each case 210 km/h. The fuel consumption in the European Union test cycle amounts to in each case 5.9 litres per 100 of kilometers.
As temperful basis motorizing of the Fünftürers first the proven 1,6-Liter-Antrieb with outside air/fuel mixture and double VANOS remain in the program. It carries 115 HP for 85 KW out, makes an acceleration value of 10.9 seconds and a point speed of 200 km/h possible with a consumption according to European Union standard of 7,5 litres per 100 of kilometers.
Easily, strongly and efficiently: New four-cylinder diesel engines
Also for the four-cylinder diesel engines a change of generations lines up. New BMW 1er profits as the first model from the associated increases in output and consumption reductions. They were obtained among other things with modifications at the combustion chambers, the air circulation, the loading with variable turbine geometry as well as at the Common Rail injection system. Beyond that the use of an aluminum of crank case leads to a substantial weight optimization. The new four-cylinder Diesel with a capacity of 2,0 litres is available for BMW the 1er in two performance levels. In both variants the new drive unit is equipped in series with a enginenear Diesel particle filter. Thus the emission limit values of the exhaust standard euro 4 are fallen below clearly.
In BMW the 120d produces the engine an output of 130 KW 177 HP and a maximum torque of 350 Nm. The achievement gain around 10 KW in the comparison to the predecessor engine presses itself in a value of 7.5 seconds (Fünftürer: 7.6 seconds) for the acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h as well as in a maximum speed from in each case 228 km/h. On the other hand the average consumption reduces after European Union by 5 per cent to now 4.9 litres per 100 of kilometers.
