HAVE IT ALL: ROCK AND SOUL.The new BMW M140i 3-door: 340 hp, 250 kW.
Uniquely in the BMW 1 Series, the BMW M140i lines up with a 340 hp 6-cylinder petrol engine, which accelerates the 3-door model to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. With the aim of uncompromising driving pleasure, the M experts have modified and tuned numerous details to match perfectly, from design and engine through to suspension. The result is a compact M Performance model with optical and driving characteristics to assure it of a unique position in the BMW 1 Series.

Fuel consumption (combined): 7.8 to 7.1 l/100 km
CO2 emissions (combined): 179 to 163 g/km
THE M PERFORMANCE DESIGN OF THE BMW M140i 3-DOOR.
Outstanding performance can only be achieved by perfect interplay between all components. This starts with the air inlets in the front, which help to cool the engine, and continues to the M Sport suspension, which gives the BMW M140i even better handling. Selected features from the M Sport package have been accentuated with exclusive M Performance details. Optical indications of a spirit that proves impossible to resist once the powerful M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine has been allowed to rev freely.
As an exclusive addition, the side air inlets of the aerodynamic front apron on the BMW M140i are fitted with design elements in Ferric Grey.
18'' M Double-spoke 436 M.
The exclusive light-alloy wheels in Ferric Grey in conjunction with the M Sport brake optimally transfer acceleration and braking operations to the asphalt (225/40 ZR18 front, 245/35 ZR18 rear).
Exterior mirror caps in accent colour.
The curved mirror caps are finished in Ferric Grey. Their aerodynamic design offers barely any resistance to the airstream.
M logo in Dark Chrome.
The M logo in Dark Chrome is an elegant way of accentuating the fact that the BMW M140i is an M Performance Automobile.
Exhaust pipe finishers on both sides.
Exclusive to the BMW 1 Series, the exhaust pipe finishers in Black Chrome on both sides in the BMW M140i indicate the modified exhaust system without middle silencer and with air vent control.
Model designation in Dark Chrome.
The specific model designation on the rear in accent colour underlines the close relationship between the BMW M140i and the models of BMW M.
M PERFORMANCE TWIN POWER TURBO INLINE 6-CYLINDER PETROL ENGINE.
The M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with a displacement of 3.0 litres combines a TwinScroll turbocharger with Valvetronic, double-VANOS and High Precision Injection. This intelligent innovative package reduces the combined fuel consumption figures of the BMW M140i with 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission to only 7.1 litres per 100 km (xDrive: 7.4 litres/100 km) with CO2 emissions of 163 g/km (xDrive: 169 g/km) and permits impressive performance values: 250 kW (340 hp), maximum torque of 500 Nm and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds (xDrive 4.4 seconds). The maximum speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited). Within the BMW 1 Series, this engine is used exclusively in the BMW M140i.
Emotive M Performance sound
The specific exhaust system of the BMW M140i can be instantly recognised by the tailpipes in Black Chrome on both sides. Elimination of the middle silencer and the intelligent air vent control produce a charismatic sound, which even exerts its spine-tingling effect on the occupants of the sport seats. These extensive acoustic optimisations give a further decisive boost to the sports car sensation.
THE M PERFORMANCE DRIVING DYNAMICS OF THE BMW M140i 3-DOOR.
The BMW M140i 3-door embodies sporty driving pleasure and a high measure of driving dynamics. Its chassis lowered by ten millimetres brings the power directly onto the road. Its M Sport brake with blue brake callipers and M logo guarantees maximum deceleration even with an especially dynamic driving style. Its variable sports steering with modifications to the power steering and self-centring moment give the driver an especially reliable sensation of directional control.
More dynamism: the lowered M sport chassis
In order to translate the outstanding engine performance into impressive and authoritative driving dynamics, springs and stabilisers have been precisely adjusted to the high-torque 6-cylinder engine. Specific elasto-kinematics for the front axle guarantee impressive driving moments. Even more agility is achieved by the specially tuned M sport suspension lowered by 10 millimetres and the variable sport steering including Servotronic. The optional BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system distributes the propulsive force of the BMW M140i xDrive flexibly between the axles and supplies best possible traction even under difficult road conditions.
Figures for the BMW M140i xDrive 3-door:
Fuel consumption (combined): 7.4 l/100 km
CO2 emissions (combined): 169 g/km
More sport: the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission
Responsible for the dynamic sprints of the BMW M140i is the option of the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission. The Launch Control it contains ensures that accelerations from 0 to 100 km/h are possible in only 4.6 seconds. Simply press the DSC button, set the selector lever to position “S”, briefly depress the brake and kick down the accelerator pedal – releasing the brake now will teach you precisely what thrust means.
Greater control: M Sport brakes as standard
Four-piston fixed-calliper aluminium disc brakes resolutely bring the 18'' M light-alloy wheels of the type 436 M Double-spoke at the front to a standstill. Acting on the rear axle is a two-piston version. Thanks to internal ventilation they perform reliably even under a high thermal load. Even when the vehicle is stationary, this tremendous braking power can be recognised by the distinct blue brake callipers with M logo.
THE M PERFORMANCE FAMILY.
Finely honed design, perfected drive, maximised driving dynamics. M Performance Automobiles embody this triad of features. As exclusive offers from BMW M GmbH, they combine the best of their respective series with the dynamic genes of BMW M, thus creating their very own class.
The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected. Consumtion data is determined in accordance to the ECE driving cycle.
The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.
Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.
