2012 BMW 335is Convertible Review
- 6 Cylinder
- 6 Cylinder Twin Turbo
The BMW 335i delivers a special mix of sporting performance, practicality and European luxury in a compact package. It's the car that defines 'sport sedan,' and the benchmark every luxury car maker from Acura to Volvo aims at when it develops an entry-level luxury sport sedan
The rear-wheel drive 335i is available in coupe, sedan and convertible bodies, while the xDrive all-wheel drive system is available in coupe only. Power is provided by a 3.0-liter, turbo, inline six-cylinder engine that puts out 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on all variations, with a six-speed automatic transmission optional. Standard safety features include six airbags, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with adaptive brakelights, traction and stability control, active anti-whiplash head restraints, as well as automatic pop-up roll-over protection on the convertible.
For 2012, the coupe and cabriolet remain unchanged, the sedan will be completely redesigned and launched later in the model year. The new sedan will offer features such as an eight-speed automatic, knee airbags, auto stop/start engine and increased interior and cargo space.
