As the entry level model in the new 2018 BMW 3 Series, the 316i petrol sets an extremely high bar. Complementing the car’s powerful and agile exterior, the 1.6 Litre turbo injection engine provides an output of up to 134 brake horsepower and around 220Nm of torque. This gives the Saloon 316i model enough torque to reach top speeds of 130mph, and acceleration from 0 to 60mph in a surprisingly quick 8.6 seconds. The larger 3 Series Touring Estate 316i, as you might expect, has a slightly slower acceleration, reaching 60mph in 9.4 seconds.
The power and athleticism of the 316i is balanced by the inclusion of BMW’s award winning EfficientDynamics set of technologies, which combine to reduce carbon emissions and fuel costs. The result is a greener, smoother engine, with combined fuel economy as high as 47.9mpg, and emissions as low as 137g/km for the Saloon model.
The 2018 316i is available in either: ES trim with 17 inch Star-spoke alloy wheels and BMW Professional radio as standard; SE trim with the addition of automatic two-zone air-conditioning and Park Distance Control system; or Sport trim with Drive Performance Control and sports seats. All models can be fitted with manual or automatic transmission, and upgraded with a large range of optional comfort and design packages, to suit your specific requirements and desires.
