Not really. First off, the engine options are a 1.9 liter 4 cylinder and a 2.5 or 2.8 liter inline 6. There is no V6. The 4 cylinder will be badged 1.9, while the 2.5 liter 2.3i, and the 2.8 liter 2.5i (or 2.8i, not sure. BMW was weird with naming these cars). Your best bet is to just open the hood and look.

Also, 4 cylinder models have a single exhaust outlet. 6 cylinders will have two.
