The BMW 135i Coupe is briskly motivated by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower and an incredible 300 lb-ft of torque from as low as 1,400 rpm. With its direct piezo gasoline injectors, twin low-mass turbochargers and air-to-air intercooling, optimum performance and economy is achieved with no loss in engine response. For the 135i Coupe, acceleration from 0-62 mph is 5.3 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
The new BMW 135i Coupe comes not only with a sports suspension, but also with appropriate modifications of the ASC and DSC driving stability systems, taking the particularly sporting character of the car into account. And as a further point the top model in the range has an even more spontaneous control map for the gas pedal.
The innovative interior design incorporates high-quality and sophisticated trim elements with luxurious upholstery and color choices. The control console for the entertainment and air conditioning functions is integrated smoothly and harmoniously into the dashboard through its soft radii and flowing surfaces. The Controller featured in the optional iDrive control system is integrated to the center console, again following BMW's characteristic philosophy.
BMW 1 Series Coupe has the stability of the brake control system is very prominent. Standard ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) and ASC (Automatic Stability Control) prevent the wheels from spinning while CBC (Cornering Brake Control) stabilizes the car whenever necessary during application of the brakes in the corners. All these functions are part of DSC Dynamic Stability Control car that can apply individual brakes on each wheel in particularly demanding situations and by reducing engine power, could prevent the rear of the car swerving around (oversteer) or the front of the car from "pushing" out of bend (understeer).
When the network with the optional Active Steering, DSC can also prevent the car from swerving out of control on slippery surfaces by countersteering with the appropriate amount to allow the driver to regain control. To ensure enhanced traction when the DSC is turned off, the function of the software-controlled locking the wheels when spinning in a slow process, appropriate control. This, in turn, improve car traction with no negative effects on its steering behavior.
