About BMW 335i
It’s the coupe version of the BMW 335i, but with one less turbo. I have a sneaking suspicion that the reason for this move to a single blower is because upcoming M models will differentiate themselves by having twin turbochargers. We already know that the next M5 will use the twin turbo V8 from the X6M, and BMW has confirmed that this model of the M3 will be the last one to feature a naturally aspirated engine; the model after it will feature a turbocharged six-cylinder engine. In any case, we’ll save that for another time and topic. The mid-life refresh of the entire coupe and cabrio range includes the 335i, which has been redesigned as part of that effort.
When told that the replacement model has half the number of turbos, the majority of people who currently own 335is are likely to feel cheated and look elsewhere for their next vehicle. As a result, BMW could not afford to make a mistake with this engine. However, BMW has made the courageous decision not to increase the power or the torque in any way. Instead, the company has made sure that the 295 lb-ft hit is now available earlier (at only 1200 rpm! ), and that it continues to be sustained until 5000 rpm. Instead, the emphasis has been placed on enhancing fuel economy (which has increased by 8% to 33.6mpg) and reducing emissions (which have decreased by 10% to 196g/km).
Let’s give the engine the majority of our attention for the time being because the only modification made to the suspension is the incorporation of non-linear dampers (which do admittedly make a small, positive difference). But it’s worth spending some time discussing the engine because, quite frankly, what BMW has accomplished is mind-boggling.
In the past, we have marveled at the twin turbo’s astonishingly rapid engine response, low end grunt, and top end fizz. However, BMW has now surpassed it in every category with a single turbo, and we are amazed by this development. It is, of course, a variable vane unit, but I’ve never driven a car with forced induction that was so capable of maximizing both ends of the rev spectrum as well as this one does. There is an immediate thump, and there is not the slightest hint of hollowness in the mid-range (even the twin turbo had a slight drop-off). Above 4500 rpm, the 3.0-liter really opens up, with the needle hurling itself at the 7000 rpm redline, accompanied by a howling, M3-like note.
