Dynamic Focus for BMW 130i Sport

February 29th, 2008

  • Lithe athleticism in a compact five-door package.
  • 18-inch double spoke M alloy wheels now standard.

With the efficient, eager power of its 195 kW inline six-cylinder engine, distinctive, compact five-door styling and perfectly balanced rear-drive configuration, the BMW 130i Sport has the ability to bring out the enthusiast in any driver.

Practicality combines with sheer sportiness to make the 130i Sport a unique presence in the Australian market – a potent engine delivering its power to the rear wheels is something only BMW offers in this segment.

And now the BMW 130i Sport gains an even sharper edge with the adoption of 18-inch double spoke M alloy wheels as standard equipment to compliment the dynamic abilities of the M Sport suspension.

The 130i Sport sits 15mm closer to the ground than other 5-door 1 Series BMW models, setting off its rakish stying and contributing to enviable handling and roadholding qualities.

The BMW 130i Sport comes standard with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with extended functionality, including Start-off Assistant and brake drying, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), which permits an even sportier style of motoring, and Cornering Brake Control (CBC) which provides added stability in braking manoeuvres.

This clearly sporting statement is accompanied by pricing and equipment revisions that endow the 130i Sport with an even more irresistible appeal.

The comprehensive list of standard equipment includes the M Aerodynamic Package, M Sport suspension, M leather steering wheel and M doorsill finishers.

The 130i Sport comes with Boston leather BMW sports seats, automatic climate-control air-conditioning and Glacier Silver aluminium interior trim as well as the BMW lights package that includes reading lights, illuminated vanity mirrors, indirect lighting front and rear, front foot well lights and exterior puddle lights.

Anthracite roof lining, interior trim in Aluminium Glacier Silver, shadowline for the exterior windows, preparation for Bluetooth mobile interface and USB audio interface are all standard in the 130i Sport.

Now optional on the BMW 130i Sport, as part of the price adjustment, are electric front seats, electric lumbar support and Bi-Xenon headlights with headlight washer system.

At $58,900 in six-speed manual transmission form, the BMW 130i Sport is a scintillating, dynamic performance car that perfectly encapsulates the true essence of BMW.

The BMW 130i Sport equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, including gearshift paddles, is priced from $61,700. Pricing does not include dealer delivery and other statutory on road charges.
