BMW 125i 2017 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8
The four-cylinder, turbo-petrol 125i starts off at $49,990.

The four-cylinder, turbo-petrol 125i ($49,990) features LED headlights, the iDrive6 multimedia system, digital radio, sat nav with live traffic, climate control air, a reversing camera, and rain-sensing wipers.

The standard 'M Sport' package adds suspension tuning, 18-inch alloys, anti-dazzle side mirrors, bigger brakes, high-gloss 'Shadow Line' exterior trim, an 8.8-inch touchscreen multimedia system, cloth/Alcantara upholstery, 'M' leather steering wheel and an anthracite roofliner.

Its 2.0-litre engine develops 165kW at 5200-6500rpm, and a meaty 310Nm from just 1400-5000rpm. An eight-speed auto transmission pushes drive to the rear wheels only.

BMW claims a figure of 5.9L/100km for the combined (ADR 81/02 - urban, extra-urban) fuel economy cycle for the 125i, emitting 134g/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.
