The much awaited BMW 1-series has finally been launched with two engine options for the Indian market. First up is the 1.6-litre turbo petrol model that will be available in a base trim starting at Rs 20.9 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). The base 1.6-litre turbo petrol model puts out 138PS and 220 Nm of torque and will come mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox. The petrol 116i is available to Indian customers only as a base variant, but is loaded with a fair bit of gadgetry to justify its Rs 20 lakh plus price tag.

 

Standard fitments include fog lamps, automatic headlights, a start/stop button, rear parking sensors, a CD player with aux-in compatibility, Eco mode, BMW’s Brake Energy Regeneration system, a total of six airbags, ABS, and 16-inch alloy wheels.

 

Also mated to a eight-speed auto box, the 118d turbo diesel model is the more powerful of the two dishing out 144PS of power and 320Nm of torque between 1750-2500rpm. Furthermore, there are two trims under the diesel spec version, the Sport Plus and the Sport Line.

The 118d Sport Line adds dual-zone climate control, a sliding front armrest, electric seat adjust with memory function, a hands-free facility with USB interface and BMW’s iDrive controller, making it a significantly more feature packed model as compared to its petrol namesake.

 

The top-spec 118d Sport Plus is the final authority in the 1-series model line-up for India. Apart from all the equipment on the standard petrol and diesel models, the 118d Sport Plus additionally offers features like keyless go, rear air-con vents and a sunroof. It also gets larger 17-inch alloy wheels.

 

All BMW 1-series models will also come with four different driving modes to choose from – Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Eco Pro, which adjust the way the engine, gearbox and steering behave. But be advised, if you do manage to somehow bust even one of BMW’s puncture free run-flat tyres there is no spare to save the day.

Petrol : 

116i - Rs 20.9 lakhs
