In January 2014, the Toyota Verso 1.6 D-4D model will come to market with a BMW engine under the hood.
As announced back in 2011, BMW will supply the Japanese automaker with modern diesel engines. First models will carry the four-cylinder units but other powerplants will follow in the future.
The Toyota Verso 1.6 D-4D 1.6-liter uses the N47D16 engine variant with 113 hp and 270 Newton meters of torque. The CO2 emission is 119 grams per kilometer.
Didier Leroy (SEO Toyota Motor Corporation and Toyota Motor Europe President and CEO): “At Toyota, we believe that the environmental challenges that faces our industry, require more than one approach. Hybrid is the heart of our strategy for sustainable mobility, but we also see a space for clean diesel in Europe.
Working with an industry leader such as the BMW Group allows us to benefit from economies of scale in the development and simultaneously to shorten the time until the introduction of new products. ”[Source: Bimmertoday]
