With the N13 engine Turbo-Valvetronic Direct Injection (TVDI) technology is making its first appearance in BMW’s small 4-cylinder petrol engines. The N13 engine is gradually replacing the N46 and N43 4-cylinder engines in the performance classes below the x20i. A TwinScroll exhaust turbocharger optimises the response characteristics and delivers power already at low engine speeds. The N13 engine is closely related to the N18 engine, which drives the MINI COOPER S. The basic engine is essentially the same – with just minor modifications. The peripherals have been adapted to longitudinal installation in BMW models. A special feature for BMW is the switching of the intake and exhaust sides in the vehicle. Thus, for the first time in a BMW vehicle, the exhaust side is on the left side when viewed in the direction of travel.
