BMW M340i Emerges Just Shy Of A Full-On M3

2020 BMW M340i xDrive to Debut in LA

The new BMW M340i is the fastest non-M 3 Series

It's set to debut at the LA Auto Show later this month, but the Bavarian automaker has spilled the beans ahead of time to give us more than just a faint idea of what to expect. Fuel supply is performed by means of High Precision Injection technology, the injectors of which now operate at an injection pressure increased to up to 350 bar. Hitting the Sport or Sport+ modes of the driving modes selector is said to really bring the engine alive thanks to the valves in the active exhaust system being opened to their fullest.

With the release of the new seventh-generation 3 Series, performance enthusiasts the world over have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new M3. The M Sport differential is electronically controlled with a fully variable rear-locking function. The components of the double-joint spring strut front axle and the five-arm rear axle, both of which have been optimised in terms of weight and stiffness, enhance cornering dynamics and steering precision, as do the larger track widths and optimum wheel camber angles. An M Sport suspension is standard, lowering the ride height by 0.4 inch, and an adaptive M suspension with electronically controlled dampers is available. Finally, you get some lovely blue paint plus M logos to finish off the four-piston front/single piston rear brake calipers. There are standard-fit 18-inch wheels, with 19-inch rims available as an option.

BMW says the result is sharpened throttle response, more explosive performance through the rev-range and better overall efficiency.

Design and equipment features with a clear emphasis on sportiness.

Since the M340i sits among the regular model line-up, it does without muscle flexing features like flared arches.

Inside, you'll find sports seats with M-specific upholstery (a combination of Sensatec and Alcantara), anthracite "BMW Individual" roof liner, an M-branded leather-clad steering wheel and interior trim strips in "Aluminium Tetragon". The digital instrument cluster and the front door sills feature the model lettering.
