BMW 318i 2016

The 2016 BMW 318i range of configurations is currently priced from $26,999. Our most recent review of the 2016 BMW 318i resulted in a score of 6 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Bill McKinnon had this to say at the time: This 318i carries the DNA of its ancestors. It does the job but at the price you're seriously short changed in features and performance. At least there's no need to worry about being counted among the yuppies. They're all driving the Mercedes C-Class now.

This is what Bill McKinnon liked most about this particular version of the BMW 318i: Frugal, flexible drivetrain of 1.5 triple and eight-speed auto works well in town, Taut dynamics and compliant ride with M suspension, iDrive

The 2016 BMW 318i carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1300 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

  • Is the BMW 318i a good & reliable car?

    So long as it is serviced on time and looked after well, the BMW 318i can be a great, reliable and enjoyable mode of transport. Although it is no tar-burning supercar the 318i has been known for 30 years as a well-made, pleasant way to get around town. Older second-hand models should have a professional inspection before purchase to make sure they have been serviced regularly and not driven without car, as this can affect the car's long-term reliability.

  • How can you make a BMW 318i faster?

    Trade it in on an M3. Realistically, modifying your 318i is a legal minefield and doesn't really make sense given BMW produce higher-performance models in the 3-series line-up, starting with the 328i and going all the way to the ridiculously fast M3.
