Exclusive tailpipe trims.
Exclusively for the M340i xDrive and M340d xDrive Sedan: left and right tailpipes in free form and in the colour Cerium Grey. In this way, the tailpipes make a visual statement and emphasise the sportiness of the M340i xDrive and M340d xDrive Sedan.
Sport seats & M seat belts.

BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine.
The M340i xDrive is powered by a three-litre inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. With an output of 275 kW (374 hp) and a maximum torque of 500 Nm, it has an extremely sporty driving performance. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds. The M340d xDrive comes with a 6-cylinder diesel engine and impresses with an output of 250 kW (340 hp) and a maximum torque of 700 Nm. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds.
M sport differential.
The M sport differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of a bend, when taking bends at high speeds or on different road surfaces. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.
8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission.
The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission offers incredibly sporty gear changes. Whether automatic or manual using gearshift paddles or gear lever – for comfortable coasting or incredibly dynamic driving. In SPORT mode and with the gear lever in the left-hand S/M position, the gear shifts are configured for the best performance.
M Sport brake.
The M Sport brake has four-piston fixed callipers at the front and single-piston floating callipers at the rear in blue with the M designation and features large brake discs to ensure an outstanding braking performance.
Variable sport steering.
The Variable sport steering with Servotronic creates a direct and agile steering response and ensures that less physical effort is required to turn the wheel. It reacts to the angle of the steering wheel with varying steering ratios. This improves handling when driving more dynamically and reduces the effort needed to steer when parking and turning.
Adaptive M suspension.
The 10 millimetre lowered Adaptive M suspension can be electrically adjusted at any time to suit the road and driving conditions. Drivers can also adjust the suspension characteristics via the Driving Experience Control to enable their preferred driving style at the time – from comfortable to extremely athletic with markedly agile handling.
Mild hybrid technology.
Mild hybrid technology is used to recover braking energy and supports the combustion engine during acceleration with electric power. This reduces fuel consumption and emissions while giving you a dynamic advantage. The mild hybrid technology also makes the Automatic Start/Stop function much faster and much more comfortable. Currently available for BMW M340d xDrive Sedan.
