The BMW 840d xDrive Convertible relies on a diesel engine (combined fuel consumption: 6.3–5.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 165–155 g/km)* unlike anything else in the competitive environment to deliver superior traction and low fuel consumption.

The 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder diesel power unit generates a maximum output of 320 hp and a maximum torque of 680 Nm.

Both engine variants comply with the Euro 6d TEMP emissions standard.

They achieve Power transmission through the eight-speed Steptronic sport gearbox and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive.

Only the BMW M850i xDrive Convertible will be available in South Africa.
