Friday, March 9th, 2012

It’s car show season and everyone here at BMW of Freehold couldn’t be more excited about the new BMW models that are being debuted. As most of you already know, the new BMW 3 Series was recently revealed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. We all know everything there is to know about the new 3 Series (which is why we’re so excited), but we just can’t stop looking at these new photos! We’re looking forward to meeting the new 3 Series in person at our NJ BMW showroom, but until then, we’ll just have to enjoy the photos!

Among the big BMW debuts this year at the Geneva Motor Show, the new F30 BMW 3 Series xDrive almost went unnoticed. The xDrive version of the refreshed 3 Series will be available this fall and in the U.S. will come in two variants: BMW 328i xDrive and 335i xDrive.

The model showcased at BMW exhibit is the 320d xDrive which shares the same engine as the EfficientDynamics edition model: a 2.0 liter commonrail DI variable geometry turbocharged lump, but with different power output – the ED Edition has 163 hp, while the 320d produces 184 hp, both at a similar 4,000 rpm. The total torque numbers are rated at 380 Nm @ 1,750-2,750 rpm.

In previous driving tests, the BMW 32d0 was rated at 5.4 liter/100 km, so expect a similar figure for the slightly heavier xDrive variant.

Head of BMW Interior Design explains ConnectedDrive

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Hey there Bimmer fans! Life in the great Garden State has been fantastic lately; it’s lighter later, Spring is days away and things are really warming up! At BMW of Freehold, we are sooo looking forward to driving down the shore in our BMW convertibles with the top down! But for now, we are still enjoying all the buzz about the Geneva Motor Show. Our NJ BMW dealer has got some exclusive info from BMW’s Head of Interior Design, Marc Girard, courtesy of BMW Blog!

Marc Girard is BMW’s Interior Design guru; he worked on the design for the interior of the BMW 1-Series from 2000 to 2002, was head of Interior Design for the MINI brand from 2004 to 2006, and began leading the entire BMW Interior Design team in April 2009.

According to Girard, the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive concept has 3 meanings: safety, which focuses on driver orientation, infotainment for interaction between the driver and the passenger, and convenience, which is mainly dealing with the overall comfort of the vehicle.

Although the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive is certainly impressive, Girard mentions, “with user interface, you can have some knobs, you can do a lot of things. You see, in this car there’s almost nothing, so it has purity, reduction, has a lot to do with aesthetics.” The design is appealing, but the features are still out of this world. The BMW Vision ConnectedDrive concept boasts Night Vision, a BMW ConnectedDrive Concierge service, and Parking Assistance, among many other details for the driver and passenger.

BMW’s Mini Rocketman concept resembles the original Mini of the 1950s, so hardcore enthusiasts are sure to be pleased. The original was designed to be approximately 10 feet from front to back and the new concept will be just a pinch over 11. Being marketed as an urban solution, it’s rumored that the BMW Mini Rocketman concept could get about 78 MPG. Full of style, smarts and electronic gadgets & gizmos, the BMW Mini Rocketman has something for everyone!
