BMW 120d: Green Envy with a Sporting Edge - (Australia)

For those sporting drivers with a green heart, the BMW 120d Sports Hatch manual may just be the answer.  Equipped with the latest in BMW fuel saving technology, the highly efficient yet dynamically stimulating BMW 120d Sports Hatch is yet another example of BMW EfficientDynamics.

The environmentally friendly BMW 120d Sports Hatch manual consumes just 4.8-litres of diesel per 100 km/h on the combined cycle, and emits only 128 g/km of CO2.

It is the first BMW offered in Australia that mates a six-speed manual transmission with the powerful four-cylinder diesel engine and also the first BMW across the entire model range to be equipped with the Auto Start Stop function.

The third-generation common rail injection 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine is renowned for its smooth and seamless acceleration when teamed with the six-speed automatic transmission, but the six-speed manual version takes the compact luxury BMW 120d Sports Hatch into a new dimension.

Armed with 130 kW of power and a muscular 350 Nm of torque, the new BMW 120d Sports Hatch manual will race to 100 km/h in just 7.6 seconds.

Such dynamic BMW prowess dramatically shades the performance of its rivals, one of which can muster only 77 kW and takes 11.7 seconds to complete the 0-100 km/h run.

The BMW 120d Sports Hatch manual is specified in line with the BMW 120d Sports Hatch automatic, which means it comes standard with Dynamic Stability Control, rear Park Distance Control, 17-inch light alloy wheels with run flat safety tyres, sports leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, cruise control, automatic climate control and sport seats.

Like all BMW 1 Series models, a full range of optional equipment is available to the BMW 120d manual customer, including the M Sport Package, Professional Navigation, Comfort Access and Adaptive Bi-Xenon headlights.

The BMW 120d Sports Hatch manual is priced from $46,790*.  Customer deliveries have already commenced.
