At BMW of Devon, we strive to provide you with the most in-depth knowledge and coverage of your BMW vehicle, and when it comes to driving, it all starts with the engine. To help you better understand your BMW vehicle, we're going to explain how the TwinPower turbo engine works and how you can better utilize your vehicle during your morning commute or your weekend getaway.

What is a TwinPower Turbo Engine?

The Twin in TwinPower doesn't mean that there are two turbochargers in the engine. Instead it means that there's an exhaust manifold that separates the exhaust gasses, allowing them to flow through two spirals, also called scrolls. That's why you'll often see the TwinPower engine also referred to as a twin-scroll engine. The turbocharger also has two nozzles, one that's smaller for low-end responses and a larger one for high output.
