New BMW M340i sedan: more details about 'M3 Lite' emerge

  • 2020 BMW M340i xDrive to Debut in LA

Torque now peaks at 369lb ft, helping the M340i to hit 62mph half a second earlier than the previous quickest non-M3 3 Series, the 340i (of the now discontinued F-generation) - although, again, some of the gains made in away-from-the-line performance can be attributed to the standard fitment of xDrive. And we'll have to wait a little longer.

The next-generation BMW 3 Series sedan is making the auto show rounds.

Although BMW didn't show the more powerful variant in Paris, it released specs of the model at that time. As is typical of German automobiles, top speed remains electronically limited to 155 miles per hour (249 km/h).

The power is transmitted to the rear wheels (or all four in the xDrive version) through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Both rear- and all-wheel-drive models come with a standard M Sport limited-slip differential for improved traction and cornering.

Now even the French Army is rinsing Trump about cemetery no-show

Pricing has yet to be announced, but the new top performance version of the BMW 3 is set to launch next summer.

"You can also opt for 19-inch alloys (in two designs and with mixed tyres) if the standard 18" wheels don't fit the bill. The M sport brakes achieve this with a more direct ratio as well as a different hydraulic configuration including four-piston, fixed calliper brakes and 348 millimetres discs at the front and single-piston, floating calliper brakes with 345 millimetres discs at the rear. Also there's something called "variable sport steering", said to provide better feedback. Hmm. The Adaptive M suspension with electronically controlled dampers is also optionally available.

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

As you'll see in these new images, the 2020 BMW M340i distinguishes itself with a special mesh grille. Instead, it signals its ranking with some extra aerodynamic features on the front bumper, a few M badges and some grey metallic trim outside.

The M Sport vibe carries through to the cabin in the form of sports seats upholstered in a Sensatec and Alcantara combo, anthracite roof liner and M-badged steering wheel.
