BMW has finally come out with its 2.0L four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. This oil burner codenamed N20 was in the making for quite some time now. The 2 Liter turbocharged engine now will replace the classic naturally aspirated 3.0L six cylinder engine which is doing duty in many of BMW’s car models. This new engine might also be seen in the BMWs in Indian market soon.
Though the company is mum on the details of the engine, we expect that the new engine will power the likes of BMW 1-Series, BMW X3, 3-Series, Z4 roadster and 5-Series models in the Indian market. Did we miss out to say that this new engine is the first ever four-cylinder petrol engine employing BMW’s Twin-Power Turbo Technology.
The new engine which comes with a all-aluminium crankcase is just not light, but with a twin-scroll turbo charging system, it is quite powerful also. Any BMW car fitted with this dream of an engine must cruise like a knife in the cake. To top it all, the N20 engine is mated with the advanced version of company’s VALVETRONIC variable valve control system.
Now, For those magic numbers that you all have been so patiently reading this blog for, here it is. The new 2.0L engine is capable to pump out a peak power of 245 bhp at 5,000 rpm alsong with a top torque of 35.6 kg/m at 1,250 rpm. Its just not the numbers which looks promising here, the fuel economy and the emission level also has been drastically decreased comapred to the same of its existing 3.0L power-train.
