The introduction of the all-new BMW 4 Series marks the beginning of an era. It replaces the outgoing 3 Series Coupe and Convertible (E90), offering not only a sportier rendition, but also tempting features and improved fuel consumption.
The athleticism of the vehicle is highlighted by the engine, with certain models sporting 0 to 60 acceleration in as little as 5.4 seconds, the equivalent of 300 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Efficiency is in the equation with new features to reduce air resistance and turbulence, automatically promoting fuel conservation. The improved Navigation system interprets road conditions, traffic, and individual driving styles to create the most fuel-efficient route. SPORT Mode and ECO PRO Mode accentuate the versatility of the vehicle, allowing for either performance driving or economical driving. ECO PRO Mode can reduce fuel consumption up to 20% in certain conditions.
Comfort in the interior is a given with highly adjustable seats, backrests, and integrated headrests. Ample interior and trunk storage allows for worry-free transportation. As with all BMW vehicles, safety is made the priority in the new 4 Series. The Head-Up Display projects important information such as speed limits and Navigation information directly onto the windshield, decreasing distractions.Share on Facebook
On Monday July 29th, the production version of the highly anticipated BMW i3 was unveiled. Upholding BMW’s slogan “the ultimate driving machine”, the electric i3 doesn’t compromise design, safety, or attention to detail for sustainability.
Expected in fall 2014, the i3 is will sport a 100 mile driving range in a single battery charge. Efficiency features will extend the range of the i3 by analyzing driving style, traffic, and route topography. The vehicle can be charged to 80% of its capacity in less than 6 hours. If necessary, the Navigation can guide the driver to the closest charging station with the most efficient driving route.
The BMW i3’s carbon fiber exterior provides strength and agility without adding weight. The spacious interior is composed of sustainable resources such as naturally tanned leather and recycled plastics without compromising the BMW look and feel.
Designed primarily for urban use, the electric i3 offers the equivalent of 170 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h in 7 seconds. Its compact design will allow for parking in tight spaces and easy maneuvering.Share on Facebook
It’s official, BMW’s 4 Series is replacing the current 3 Series Coupe and Convertible. The number “4″ is a first for BMW, but even those skeptical of the new Series have to admit that the new 4 Series Coupe Concept is the finest rendition of the 3 Series Coupe they’ve ever seen. Just revealed at the Detroit Auto Show, check out the images below.
What BMW has to say about the ’4′:“The ’4′ doesn’t just mark the start of a new cycle, it represents the zenith of a development curve. BMW has given the new model its own individual character and a standalone design – and, in so doing, has turned ’4′ into segment shorthand for aesthetic and dynamic appeal. The latest addition to a nomenclature that sees BMW building on the fine tradition of its large BMW 6 Series and BMW 8 Series Coupes, the ’4′ stands for greater sportiness, greater exclusivity and even clearer differentiation from the BMW 3 Series range.”

The LA Auto Show opens to the public this Friday, showcasing BMW’s new i3 – an electric vehicle that upholds the brand’s reputation for “fun-to-drive”.
Take a look at its sleek interior, composed of wood, leather, wool and other renewable materials.
Electric vehicles have been criticized because of their short driving span, but BMW promises the i3 will not just an in-town, get-me-to-the-next-charging-station cruiser ASAP. The i3 can drive up to 100 miles on one battery charge and its interior technology will alert the driver as to remaining battery power using a number of factors including driving style, route topography and the use of interior electrical devices. The Navigation can guide the driver to the closest charging station and can recommend more efficient driving routes as opposed to the fastest.Share on Facebook
Recently, Kuni BMW has aired a number of television spots and web videos honoring Oregon’s Champions. With the Olympics comes the idea of recognizing those among us who demonstrate the skills, abilities, and commitment necessary to achieve greatness. We wanted to recognize those in our community who express this dedication and commitment, but do so in a way that improves the lives of those in their own communities.
At Kuni BMW we understand and value what it means to be involved in the community. We strive to be the best at what we do, and we want to recognize those whose goal is not athletic achievements or business success, but rather to simply make the lives of those in their communities better.
