The new BMW 114d Sports Hatch

03 September 2012

"new BMW 114d Sports Hatch."

Write a Review about the BMW 1 Series


From November, BMW will be offering a host of new engines and options across its 1 Series and 3 Series ranges.  BMW will be offering a new entry point to the 1 Series range with the 114d, the first petrol EfficientDynamics model and three new engines for the 3 Series Touring.

The BMW 1 Series will extend its diesel engine offering this autumn with the introduction of the new BMW 114d. The 1.6-litre version of the four-cylinder diesel engine with TwinPower Turbo technology, has a maximum output of 95hp with a peak torque of 235Nm and accelerates from zero to 62mph in just 12.2 seconds, going onto a top speed of 115mph.  This sporting performance is paired to an impressive average fuel consumption of 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of just 112g/km.

In order to achieve this impressive performance, the new BMW 114d is fitted as standard with a suite of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, including Brake Energy Regeneration, Optimum Shift Indicator, Auto Start-Stop, electromechanical power steering, Active Aerodynamics and reduced rolling resistance tyres. In addition, the new BMW 114d also comes with ECO PRO mode as standard helping to maintain a relaxed, fuel-efficient driving style.

The BMW 114d is available to order now on both the 3-door and 5-door variants, with production commencing from November 2012.   Pricing will be confirmed at a later date.

The BMW 3 Series Saloon increases engine offering.

From November the BMW Saloon will be available with its most efficient petrol engine to date, the BMW 320i EfficientDynamics.  This model is powered by a 1.6-litre TwinPower Turbo petrol engine, which generates 170hp and 250Nm of torque, yet delivers 53.3mpg and emits just 124g/km CO2.    This efficient engine goes on to take the car from zero to 62mph in just in 7.6 seconds thanks to the suite of EfficientDynamics technologies together with an optimised engine management system, revised gear ratios and optimised aerodynamics.

As well as the 320i EfficientDynamics, the new BMW 3 Series Saloon now has a new entry point into ownership with the introduction of the 316i.  Powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with TwinPower Turbo technology, the 316i produces just 134g/km CO2 whilst returning 47.9mpg.  These efficiencies have not compromised the performance of the car with the 316i creating 136hp with a maximum torque of 220Nm. Fitted as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, the new BMW 316i Saloon accelerates from zero to 62mph in 8.9 seconds, and on to a top speed of 127mph.

The 316i Saloon is priced from £22,850 OTR for the 316i ES Saloon, while the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Saloon is priced from £25,730 OTR and both will be on available from November 2012.

Extended engine range for the BMW 3 Series Touring.
Following the launch of the BMW 3 Series Touring on 22 September three additional engines will be available, the 320i, 318d and 316d, increasing the range to two petrol and four diesel engines.

The 2.0-litre petrol engine driving the new 320i Touring generates 184hp and 270Nm torque using BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, pushing the car from zero to 62mph in 7.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 145mph. With CO2 emissions of just 152g/km and fuel consumption of just 60mpg, on the combined cycle, or 145g/km CO2 45.6mpg when fitted with the optional eight-speed automatic transmission, the 320i Touring blends effortless performance with outstanding economy.

Both the BMW 318d Touring and BMW 316d Touring use a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. In the new BMW 318d Touring, the engine produces a maximum torque of 320Nm and 143hp, while in the BMW 316d Touring it gives 116hp and 260Nm torque, ensuring a smooth power delivery. 

The BMW 318d Touring has a top speed of 130mph, accelerating from zero to 62mph in just 9.2 seconds while the BMW 316d Touring accelerates in 11.2 seconds from a standing start to 62mph and reaches a top speed of 124mph.  This performance doesn’t come at the cost of efficiency, with both the316d and 318d Touring models emitting just 123g/km CO2 whilst returning 60.1mpg on the combined cycle.

Both the 316d and 318d Touring will be available from November, priced from £26,180 OTR for the BMW 316d ES Touring and £28,280 OTR for the BMW 318d SE Touring.
