The 2 Series lineup gets a small engine refresh this summer in Europe. Under the hood of the BMW 225d Coupe, the engineers have now fitted the new B47 four-cylinder turborcharged diesel engine which delivers 224 horsepower.

The new engine follows in the footsteps of the 218-hp twin-turbo N47; the maximum torque of 450 Newton meters is also in an even wider range of the speed bands (1500-3000 instead of 1500-2500 rpm). For the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h, the marginally stronger B47 Biturbo brings no advantages, so the 2015 225d Coupe should run the same distance in 6.3 seconds.
The situation is different in fuel consumption, the updated 225d Coupe has an average rating of 4.5 liters per 100 km, and CO2 emissions below 120 grams per kilometer. The top 2 Series diesel is connected in series with the ZF eight-speed automatic 8HP.
A detuned B47 unit is also used in the 218d Coupe, replacing the 143-hp N47. The engine now outputs 150 horsepower, has the same torque but wider rpm range and better fuel consumption.
Last year, the BMW 220d Coupe was also switched to the 190 hp B47.
