BMW 125i 2016

The 2016 BMW 125i range of configurations is currently priced from $23,888. Our most recent review of the 2016 BMW 125i resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: It’s hard to fault the 1 Series. Not only is it the most affordable BMW, that’s even better value for money following the revision in 2015, it’s a practical alternative to the 2 Series that loses nothing when it comes to the performance variants which are stunningly capable. We’d like to see the 1 Series made even better by the addition of more advanced safety technology.

This is what Richard Berry liked most about this particular version of the BMW 125i: Great straight-six turbo engine in M140i, Excellent handling and performance in 125i, Five-door hatch practicality

The 2016 BMW 125i carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1200 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

  • Audi RS Q3 or BMW 135i, which is more fun?

    That's a rather subjective question that's almost impossible to answer. It also depends on what you call fun. Both would be fun to drive, but if I were to make the choice purely on the driving experience I would choose the BMW.
