The new 2.0-litre power unit makes use of BMW’s unique TwinPower Turbo Technology which includes twin-scroll turbo, High Precision Injection, the variable valve control system VALVETRONIC and the variable camshaft control system double VANOS. Thanks to this combination, the engine delivers a peak output of 160 kW at 5,000 rpm, quickly developing a maximum torque of 310 Nm from as early as 1,350 rpm, which is enough to thrust it to 100 km/h in a mere 6.4 seconds with the standard 6 speed manual transmission.

The fuel consumption and exhaust emission figures are no less impressive. Equipped with a full range of EfficientDynamics features the 125i returns class-leading fuel consumption of just 6.6 l/100 kms* and CO2 emissions of 154 grams per kilometre. The BMW 125i also receives additional standard specification over its 1 Series stablemates including mixed 17” Star Spoke alloy wheels, sports leather steering wheel and variable sports steering with servotronic, all of which enhance its dynamic appeal.

The M Sport Package, which is available for the 118i, 118d and 125i, and caters to the more performance-oriented customer with additional exclusive performance features and options. The M Sports suspension, sports seats, M leather Steering wheel, M aerodynamics kit, high gloss shadow line details and anthracite roof liner are all included in this package.
