The recently announced BMW 320d with the Performance Kit has been introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Along with the 120d, the 320d is powered by the N47 engine which in “standard” format produces 177 horsepower and 350Nm of torque.
The Performance Kit gives the engine a 20 horsepower upgrade along with 40Nm of torque, for a total of 197 horsepower and 390Nm. Despite the power increase, BMW says that fuel consumption average remains unchanged.
The power kit for the N47 includes both software and hardware components, including a large intercooler and a particular powerful fan for the water-cooler.
Along with the engine upgrade, several exterior and interior performance parts have been added to the 320d Sedan, starting with upgraded front and rear bumpers, fiber carbon boot lid, performance brakes, Alcantara sport seats, steering wheel with LED screen, carbon fiber trim and many other specific parts from the performance catalog.
