BMW 1 Series M Sport Edition

Following the successful launch of the new entry-level 3-door and 5-door models, the BMW 116i and the BMW 116d, in spring 2009, the BMW 1 Series is once again providing its value as the pacemaker of efficient mobility combined with outstanding driving pleasure in the compact class. Other models as of September 2009 are the Lifestyle and Sport Editions of the BMW 1-Series 3- and 5-door. The 1-Series offers a unique blend of sporting driving pleasure and outstanding efficiency. The new BMW 120i Coupe is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with BMW High Precision Injection capable of developing 170 horsepower and 210 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds and to reach a top speed of 224 km/h. An award-winning 4-cylinder diesel makes the new BMW 118d Coupe the most efficient car of its kind, the diesel engine with its aluminum crankcase, turbo-charging and common-rail fuel injection helping the 3-door BMW 118d with the World Green Car of the Year 2008 Award. This 2.0-liter unit is capable of developing 143 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.0 seconds and to reach a top speed of 210 km/h. Both new variants come as standard with a wide range of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as Brake Energy Regeneration, an Auto Start Stop function, a gearshift point indicator and ancillary units with on-demand management and control. The technologies developed by BMW, and naturally featured at no extra cost, to reduce both fuel consumption and emissions play a particularly significant role in the successful BMW 1 Series. The exterior and interior features are also carefully matched to one another on the Sport Edition Model, giving the BMW 1 Series particularly dynamic and powerful character. A further highlight of the BMW 1-Series Sport Edition comes with sports seats for the driver and front passenger in a combination of cloth and Sensatec featuring blue ornamental stitching around the seat bottoms and headrests.
