Irvine BMW Confirms BMW 135i Convertible Receives Exciting Upgrades For The 2012 Model
December 27, 2010 – Irvine, Calif. – Irvine BMW is excited to confirm, BMW today announced several modifications to the 2012 BMW 1 Series Convertible that accentuate efficiency and premium quality.
The new design of the front fascia includes BMW’s innovative Air Curtain that counters turbulence near the wheel arches and so reduces the aerodynamic resistance of the vehicle. The exterior design accents have been incorporated into the headlight and tail light clusters, and the interior, new switches and controls have a more refined look and feel.
“The BMW 135i Convertible is powered by a 3.0-liter, 230 horsepower inline-6 engine that generates 200 lb-ft of torque,” said Irvine BMW’s General Manager, Steve Rudkin. “It’s a powerful vehicle that will offer drivers something new and unexpected,” he said.
The 2012 BMW 1 Series Convertible is equipped with a roll over sensor, which continually monitors the vertical and horizontal movements of the vehicle. As soon as the sensors register the danger of the vehicle rolling over, two roll bars are extended in fractions of a second from their storage areas behind the rear headrests.
The updated 1 Series Convertible will be available to buy spring 2011.
