Expect the new cabrio to feature the same powerplants as the recently launched coupe, which means several BMW engines ranging from a 177hp 2.0L turbodiesel up to the 306hp twin-turbocharged 3.0L straight-six in the flagship 135ci. Some of the new features that will carry over from the coupe include direct injection and Bi-VANOS valve timing technology as well as BMW’s new Efficient Dynamics fuel saving tech.
The new drop-top will join the coupe and older hatchback in the 1-series range when it goes on sale later this year. The car will also be sold in North America but it’ll be limited to just the two models, a 125ci and 135ci.
