2012 BMW 328i Sedan Test Drive in Barcelona
As we all very well know, the BMW 3 Series has a long history of being the benchmark by which all sport sedans have been measured. During a recent test program in Barcelona, Spain we were able to sample the 2012 BMW 328i with the new TwinPower turbo 4-cylinder engine mated to the 8-speed Sport Automatic.
CHEVY SONIC GOES BUNGEE JUMPING
We're not sure why this was done, but Chevrolet literally "launched" its newest small car, the Sonic, by tying it to a bungee chord and rolling it off a ten-story structure at the Long Beach Convention Center. It is the first digital launch of a vehicle in Chevrolet's 100 year history. The Sonic's 1.4L turbo with the six-speed manual achieves an EPA highway fuel economy of 40 mpg.

“The BMW M2 follows on from the concept and success story of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe,” stated Frank van Meel, President of BMW M Division. “It represents the entry-level model in the BMW M range. The new BMW M2 Coupe will make BMW M accessible to new and younger target groups.”

Dynamics, agility and precision are the attributes in a BMW M vehicle and allows for continued performance success and racing achievements. At Nürburgring the M2 Coupe clocked an impressive 7:58 lap time and reaches 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds with the M DCT. The highlight of the car is its new 3-liter 6-cylinder inline engine with M TwinPower turbo technology. Packing more punch than its replacement BMW 1 M Coupe, the M2 kicks out 365-horsepower and 343 lb.-ft. of torque between 1,400 and 5,560 rpm (369 with overBoost). It comes standard with the 6-speed manual transmission, but I am more of a fan of the optional $2,900 M Double-clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Launch Control.
