EXPERT RATING
7.6
The entry-level, 1.5-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol 118i ($39,990) is offered as standard with a ‘Sport Line’ package.

The entry-level, 1.5-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol 118i ($39,990) is offered as standard with a ‘Sport Line’ package, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, the iDrive6 multimedia system, digital radio, sat nav with live traffic, climate control air, a reversing camera, a sports steering wheel, (cloth) front sports seats and rain-sensing wipers.

The 118i’s 1.5-litre turbo-petrol triple produces a respectable 100kW at 4400rpm, with maximum torque of 220Nm spread across a broad plateau from just 1250-4300rpm. An eight-speed auto transmission pushes drive to the rear wheels only.

BMW claims a figure of 4.8L/100km for the combined (ADR 81/02 - urban, extra-urban) fuel economy cycle for the 118i, emitting 112g/km of CO2 in the process.

Driver assistance tech including AEB, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection and lane departure warning is standard across the range.
