Ultimate Automobile presents the 2014 BMW 316i

BMW 3 Series’ entry level model is the 316i. It is powered by a four-cylinder, 1.6-litre petrol engine featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo technology,bmw-316i-alpine-whitehigh precision injection, Valvetronic fully variable valve control and Double-Vanos variable camshaft control. The engine produces 136 horsepower, which might sound a bit modest for the sporty 3 Series Sedan. However, with the twin-scroll turbocharger the engine delivers nice amount of torque from its considerably small displacement of 1598cc. The maximum torque of 220 Newton meters is delivered at 1,350rpm.

As standard, the power is transferred to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. The eight-speed automatic gearbox is offered as an option. Pairing an automatic transmission with a small displacement engine isn’t usually a very sporty or efficient solution. In this case the combination works quite well, in both ways. Naturally, the performance could always be a bit better, but acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 9,2 seconds isn’t bad for car with 1.6-litre engine and automatic transmission. With the manual transmission, the acceleration would be just 0,3 seconds faster, in case the driver makes perfect shifts. Top speed with both transmission choices is 210 km/h.
