Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors - Big­ger choice

Next month sees the in­tro­duc­tion of the three­cylin­der petrol en­gine for the 3-door and 5-door ver­sions of the BMW 118i.

Al­ready fea­tured on other mod­els such as 2 Se­ries Coupé, 2 Se­ries Ac­tive Tourer and the much an­tic­i­pated 2 Se­ries Gran Tourer and new 3 Se­ries Saloon, it is based on BMW Group’s latest en­gine gen­er­a­tion for a fur­ther op­ti­mised bal­ance be­tween driv­ing plea­sure and fuel econ­omy.

The 136hp en­gine in the BMW 118i achieves a zero to 62mph time of 8.5 sec­onds. Mean­while, fuel con­sump­tion and CO2 emis­sions have been re­duced by 16g/km to 56.5mpg and 116g/ km. In all, there is now a choice of four petrol and five diesel en­gines for the 1 Se­ries. Prices start at £20,245. In ad­di­tion a new four- cylin­der diesel en­gines fea­tur­ing the latest TwinPower Turbo tech­nol­ogy will be in­tro­duced in other mod­els.
