BMW 340i Is Coming This July

BMW 340i En Route

We all know the current 2015 Mercedes-Benz C400 sedan has 329hp, and the Audi S4 also comes with 333hp, this naturally puts the current BMW 335i into a disadvantaged position when speaking of the engine output, which is “only” rated at 300hp.


We have already reported six months ago that BMW is going to fix this by introducing the 340i model. The 340i will utilize a new-design inline-6 turbocharged engine, code name “B58”, to replace the current N55 engine in the 335i.

Well, today we found out some more info on the BMW 340i:

1. Engine output for the 340i will be: 320hp and 320lb-ft of torque;
2. ZF 8-speed automatic transmission is carried over;
3. Start of production scheduled in July

Feeling excited about the new BMW 340i? We welcome you to share your thoughts on how it will stack up against the Mercedes C400 and Audi S4.
