KD-FTV Series. Features and differences

As we said in a previous article, a new generation engine has already appeared on our “repair horizons” – Common rail diesel , which is revolutionary from the “conventional” diesel engine (Conventional Diesel) .
Its development ended at the beginning of this century and as a result, a new generation engine with the name D-4d .
Its volume 2.982 cc and abbreviation – 1KD-FTV .
Smaller engine – 2.494 cc , called 2 KD-FTV .
The engine uses a turbocharger with a variable boost pressure, which is achieved by changing the volume of the air ducts .. As a result, the engine has acquired outstanding dynamic characteristics:
Maximum torque 352 N.m. comes at 1500 rpm and is at this value up to 3400 rpm.
Wherein maximum power at 170 hp also comes at 3400 rpm.

The differences between the “regular” diesel engine and the Common Rail Diesel can be seen in the figures below:

Many differences and features.
For example, a special device for cooling the fuel (Fuel Cooler), which is located under the bottom of the car, is used.
A special pressure switch (Pressure Switch) is located on the fuel filter .
An important device is also a special valve (Suction Control Valve), located directly on the fuel pump and having two trouble codes.

The general device is now a little understandable, in the following articles we will begin to disassemble the device of this engine and its control system in more detail.

After the facelift of the new BMW 3-series, something different with the F30 is very difficult to find, because in fact the wrapper has remained the same, only the interior has changed, and even then, to please the trend. The concern also launches new engines, which should provide even greater popularity for the 3-series sedan. After all, it’s no secret to anyone – the locomotive of all sales for the auto giant is precisely the “three rubles”, it is it that makes up a good 60%.

It is worth noting that facelift touched the sedan, station wagon and the flagship of the Bavarian engineering M3. Only 3gt remained untouched, but only for a while.

The first photos that leaked to the Internet after the presentation made it possible to “feel” the new sedan from all sides. Immediately it became known about the new body color – Mediterranean Blue. Also changed the aerodynamic body kit of the car. Finally, the new “treshka” received fully LED running lights, dipped and daytime running lights, the first ones will be available as an option.

The body of the Bavarians did not radically change, because the previous one looked bright against the background of competitors. As for the interior, here the changes are cosmetic and imperceptible the first time. The Germans slightly modified the climate control unit, adding chrome around the ducts. The proprietary iDrive system has been updated, now it supports LTE networks, but the display is still ascetic and does not respond to your finger touches.

BMW has always made only new options, which in sum could have exceeded the price of the car itself. Also here you can order a projection color display, it will display only the necessary and necessary information for the driver.

The filling itself in the new BMW 3-series makes it clear that the whole venture with facelift was not in vain. Now there are so many new powertrains to choose from that your head is spinning. In the fall, three gasoline engines with three, four and six cylinders, which have as many as four options, will be available for sale. As for diesel, there are seven of them, and they are all with four cylinders, plus everything, there is a six-cylinder engine migrated from the previous model.

Bavarian proprietary technology TwinPower Turbo does the impossible: all motors have added strength, which will give even more dynamism, increase efficiency by another 3 percent. Two types of gearbox are available to choose from – a 6-speed manual gearbox and an 8-speed automatic.

BMW offers the all-wheel drive XDrive system, but unfortunately as an option. If you look in detail, the new 318і three-wheeler with a 136-horsepower engine accelerates to hundreds in 8.9 seconds, a 320і with a two-liter engine in 7.9 seconds, while having 184 “horses” of maximum power and 290 Nm of torque. The all-new 330і, which replaced 328, with 252 power under the hood, does not notice the first hundred, in just 5.8 seconds. And the flagship in the 3-series is the 340і modification, it replaced the 335і, has a 326-horsepower engine, which provides acceleration dynamics to a staggering 5.1 seconds, while the flow should not exceed the 7 liter mark.

Diesel engines are all equipped with 2-liter units, which are highly modernized and have four cylinders: BMW 316D, 318D, 320D with a capacity of 150, 163 and 192 horsepower, respectively. Only six-cylinder engines have not changed in versions: 325D, 330D, 335D, which have a capacity of 218, 258 and 313 “horses”.

And finally, BMW was told that their customers will be offered a hybrid version of the third series, which will also have a two-liter engine with an engine and an electric motor, which will accelerate to a hundred in just 6.3 seconds and be satisfied with only 2 liters per hundred.

The automobile company BMW very often releases news and updates. However, they have not shown this to the world. Now, the German company BMW has a car that can carry seven passengers at once. This model is called the BMW 2 Gran Tourer..

Of course, a little strange now will see a car from BMW, in which you can put seven people. World automobile brands are not very eager to master such large cars. Now it’s becoming clear that, for certain, the BMW 2 Gran Tourer will set the tone for the future automotive industry of seven-seater cars.

There are some similarities between the BMW 2 Gran Tourer and its predecessor in the 2nd series. However, the BMW 2 Gran Tourer is significantly larger than its ancestor, so its length is 21.1 cm longer and is 4,556 mm. At the same time, the wheelbase has grown up to 2.78 meters, the car is 1.6 meters high, but they decided to leave the designer width from the previous version – 1.8 meters.

Naturally, the bulk of the interesting can be seen in this car in the cabin. In the base of the BMW 2 Gran Tourer you will receive a five-seater car, but paying a little extra, you get additional seats back. Like the rest of the car with seven seats, the last row of BMW 2 Gran Tourer seats is designed specifically for children. Of course, you can put people of short stature, but it will not be very comfortable.

The row of seats, which comes second, can be easily folded and moved forward by 13 cm. The proportion of folding the second row: 40:20:40. Thus, due to the second row, you can add significantly space under the load.

Having folded the third row of seats, you can find almost perfectly smooth floor. Combining the folded seats, the size of the luggage compartment can vary from 560 to 1905 liters. The front seat also folds up, which in turn makes it possible to carry large loads.

The interior and interior lighting of the BMW 2 Gran Tourer is not much different from its older models. The car has a lot of electronics and multimedia lotions. The main feature of the functional set in the cabin is a system that allows you to control access on gadgets in the back rows (this kind of parental control).

With the 218 i, under the hood, you can see a three-cylinder engine with a volume of 1.5 liters. Such a motor is capable of squeezing 136 horsepower. In addition to the motor, it will be possible to install a mechanic or automatic machine at 6 speeds. It will be possible to accelerate to the first hundred in 9.5 seconds. In this case, fuel consumption for mixed driving will be 5.1-5.5 liters per hundred.

Model 220 i will be equipped with a 2.0 liter engine with a capacity of 192 horsepower. The mechanics will also be at 6 speeds, and the machine is already at 8 speeds. Acceleration to a hundred parts will be 7.7 seconds, and the consumption for it is 5.9-6.4 liters.

A diesel engine with a volume of 1.5 liters is also possible. The power of this unit will be 116 horsepower. Dynamics loses slightly to gasoline engines, so the first hundred obey in 11.0 seconds, but fuel consumption will be 3.9-4.3 liters.

Perhaps the most attractive power unit is a 2.0-liter diesel engine. The power of such a motor will be 150 horsepower. This engine will be equipped with an 8-speed automatic. A BMW 2 Gran Tourer with a 2.0 diesel engine will accelerate to a hundred in 9.3 seconds, and it will consume only 4.3-4.5 liters of fuel per 100 km.

And in the end, the most powerful version of the diesel engine will also be available, with a capacity of 190 horsepower. The box will be an 8-speed automatic. Acceleration to hundreds will be – 7.6 seconds, and the consumption per 100 km of 4.9-5.1 liters.

BMW 1 Series – All-Wheel Drive

BMW 1 Series All-Wheel Drive 26

This car can be called unique. Such a compact can not be found on the market. Everything is pleasing, only in the winter period of operation, rear-wheel drive cars oblige the motorist to have driving experience.

Previously, this problem could be resolved by various methods, for example, if funds allow, to find a car for the winter with front-wheel drive. Today the question can be considered closed, BMW offers users a model of a car with all-wheel drive. On city streets, this is a traditional hatchback, with its ability to “drive out” in any traffic jams and other difficult traffic situations, and outside the city?

Good in the summer. Driving a car with front-wheel drive is a pleasure. He clearly holds the course, is actively going to overtake or is being rebuilt. True, at a moderate speed, the machine shows some nervousness. In similar conditions, the management of the all-wheel drive version of BMW is not much different. Maybe the car doesn’t react so temperamentally to the functions performed by the driver, especially in the steering mechanism. But this minus turns into a plus when driving along the highway (especially at high speed). All-wheel drive transmission eliminates the need for any steering, due to the balance of the distribution of effort, part of which falls on the front axle.

But on a slippery track, the benefits of an all-wheel drive vehicle increase markedly. During acceleration, there are no slippage, stable traction, both during maneuvering and cornering. But experts note that the most efficient four-wheel drive BMW demonstrates itself on winter road surfaces, in this situation he is the complete master of the situation. Yes, and do not occupy a car.

The company offers all-wheel drive versions in 2 trim levels. Equipped to the limit with the top M135i and modification with a 120d diesel engine. Almost everything is already known about the first, only an advertising company, deployed around this model, more than eloquently confirms this. But for the diesel version 120d XDrive there are questions.

It is worth noting that this all-wheel drive modification with a diesel engine is recognized as almost the most economical car in the class, which is generally not typical for BMW, where other technical values ​​are paramount. The car spends a little more than 5 liters of heavy fuel in the combined cycle. At the same time, the model is also the fastest in the segment. How do you like this “symbiosis”? With a low power of 184 forces, the engine gives out a torsion moment of 380 Hm, which can be put on a par with the parameters of a sports car. It’s probably not difficult to imagine how this car behaves on the track, accelerating in a hundred in 7 seconds.

Paired with a diesel engine, only a manual transmission is supplied, with perfectly selected gear numbers. There is a gripe about the “rudeness” of the clutch, which, with inaccurate pedal operation, makes the car literally rip from the spot. No matter what they say, well-known aggressive habits in the car dominate. This is not surprising, because she is a true representative of BMW.
