The most affordable diesel model in the BMW 3 Series, both in terms of initial investment and running costs, is the efficient and reliable 316d. With a combined fuel economy estimated at 62.8 mpg with manual transmission, and slightly higher with the eight-speed automatic gearbox, the 316d brings considerable savings in fuel costs compared with other models in the range. The 316d diesel is available in a choice of ES, SE or Sport trims.
The 316d Saloon and Touring Estate, like all 3 Series cars, benefit from BMW’s EfficientDynamics systems, including Start/Stop technology, which saves energy by switching off the engine when the vehicle is paused at a set of traffic lights, and Brake Energy Recovery, which recycles potential energy which would have otherwise been lost during braking, and stores it in the battery. These innovations, together with special low-resistance tyres and streamlined chassis, combine to enhance the efficiency and performance of every journey. Over time, these savings add up to a significant reduction in the running costs of the car, compared with competitor models.
The interior of the 316d Saloon is remarkably comfortable and spacious, with high quality upholstery in every trim, and sufficient space in the boot for two large suitcases or a full-size set of golf clubs. Designed with efficiency and economy in mind, the BMW 316d diesel will appeal to fleet and company car drivers, as well as motorists who need to travel long distances by motorway on a regular basis, and those who want a sophisticated, refined car with impressive build quality from a desirable German brand.
