BMW's new 'budget' coupe

2007-03-13 08:48
The statuesque BMW 3 Series is well known for its twin-turbo straight six, but the range is now more accessible with the addition of a 2.0 litre powerplant.

The revised four-cylinder uses BMW's Valvetronic technology and Bi-Vanos variable camshaft adjustment. It produces peak power of 115 kW (5 kW more) at 6 400 r/min and peak torque of 200 Nm at 3 600 r/min.

The 320i coupe, equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, sprints from 0 - 100 km/h in 8.9 seconds and has a quoted top speed of 220 km/h. BMW claims fuel consumption on the combined EU cycle of 7,9 l/100 km.

320i coupe (six-speed manual) - R318 500
320i coupe (Steptronic) - R330 000
M Sports Package - R29 500
