About BMW 335D
BMW has given its ever-popular 3-series range a mid-life refresh, which not only includes the addition of new engines and equipment but also helps the car compete with the recent influx of competitors, most notably the new Jaguar XE, which BMW views as the 3-series’ primary competitor. The 335d M Sport is currently the most powerful model in the diesel lineup.
Despite the fact that most of the engines in the BMW 3-series lineup now have four cylinders – and even a three-pot in the new gasoline 318i – the models at the very top of the lineup continue to have six cylinders.
In the case of the BMW 335d, the inline six engine has a displacement of 3.0 liters and receives its air supply from a pair of turbochargers. This allows it to produce 309 horsepower at 4400 revolutions per minute and a brutal 465 pound-feet of torque beginning at 1500 revolutions per minute. This diesel estate can reach 62 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds and has an electronic top speed limit of 155 miles per hour. It is only available with xDrive all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Other advantages of the 335d include a combined fuel economy of 49.6 miles per gallon and relatively low CO2 emissions of 151 grams per kilometer.
In response to feedback received regarding the prior iteration, BMW has worked to improve the ride quality and handling characteristics, in addition to releasing additional steering feel. Suspension top mounts that are thicker, new springs and dampers for both standard and adaptive suspension setups, and anti-roll bars that are thicker are all factors that contributed to this improvement.
BMW is quick to point out that although it shares its eight-speed ZF automatic transmission with some competitors, most notably Jaguar, the company asserts that ZF allows for a certain amount of room for development when it comes to the software that controls the transmission. According to BMW, the transmission found in a 3-series acts very differently than the transmissions found in the company’s other vehicles.
Unquestionably, a step in the right direction. It can be difficult to identify the specific changes that BMW has made to the interior of the vehicle; however, the driving position continues to offer an unprecedented level of customization and serves as a benchmark for the rest of the vehicle.
The reworked steering is a significant step in the right direction. There is still an absence of feel around the straight-ahead, but increasing the steering input by a few degrees improves both the feedback and the accuracy. Additionally, the weighting is less gloopily resistant than it was in the past, which results in the steering feeling more natural at all speeds (especially when in Sport mode), and the accuracy is satisfying.
