2012 Bmw 1-Series gets a three-door version

Article by Christian A., on May 13, 2012

Bmw introduced the second body variant of the 1-Series, the three-door version. The new vehicle offers the same looks as the five-door hatchbacks but comes with wide doors with frameless windows, side window graphics that flow seamlessly into the B pillar and strongly retracted side window graphics.

Moreover, we find side panels with particularly distinctive accentuation of the rear wheel arches and new side sills line that extends to the front. For those interested, Bmw 1-Series three-door will be available with three equipment packages: Sport Line, Urban Line and M Sport Package.

Under the hood, we find plenty of engines, so that customers will be able to choose the model that fits their needs. The Bmw 114i comes with a 1.6-liter engine delivering 102 hp and 180 Nm of torque, enough to push the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.2 seconds and to a top speed of 195 km/h (121 mph). This model will offer a fuel consumption of 5.5 liters/100 km.

The Bmw 116i comes with the same engine, but delivers 136 hp and 220 Nm of torque. With these numbers, the vehicle sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.5 seconds, has a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph) and a fuel consumption of 5.5 litres/100 km. The Bmw 125i comes with a 2.0-liter petrol engine delivering 218 hp and 310 Nm of torque.

This model is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.4 seconds and has a top speed of 245 km/h (152 mph). Fuel consumption is 6.6 liters/100 km. The M135i model is the most powerful model fitted with a petrol engine. As expected, the model comes with a 3.0-liter engine delivering 320 hp and 450 Nm of torque.

The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in 5.1 seconds while the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). Fuel consumption is 8 liters/100 km. Regarding the diesel engines, the entry-level model is the 116d, which comes with a 2.0-liter engine delivering 116 hp and 260 Nm of torque.

The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in 10.3 seconds and to a top speed of 200 km/h or 124 mph. Fuel consumption is 4.3 liters/100 km. The 118d offers the same engine but with 143 hp and 320 Nm of torque, capable to push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.9 seconds and to a top speed of 212 km/h (131 mph).

Fuel consumption is 4.4 liters/100 km. The third model featuring the same 2.0-liter diesel engine os the Bmw 125d, which delivers 218 hp and 450 Nm of torque. This model is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph). The Bmw 116d EfficientDynamics Edition is the most fuel-efficient model and it is powered by the same 1.6-liter diesel engine delivering 116 hp and 260 Nm of torque. This model is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.5 seconds and a top speed of 195 km/h or 121 mph. Fuel consumption is 3.8 liters/100 km.
