320i Entry-Level 3-Series makes Detroit Sojourn

by SpeedLux

The launch of the new F30 3-Series has seen BMW’s European showrooms bombarded with smaller engines.
There’s the 316i, which makes 136 hp from a 1.6-liter turbo petrol engine, or the the 316d, which offers only 114 horsepower.

However, the in the US it has introduced only two petrol engines, the 240hp 328i, which offers a 2-liter TwinPower Turbo engine and the bigger 335i, a bigger 3-liter straight-six.

Soon we will see a change since BMW has brought a unique 3-Series to the 2013 Detroit auto show. Its an entry-level model called the 320i.

This mid size 3-Series is not at all bad to begin with. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine, rated in the 320i at 180 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 200 lb-ft of torque from 1,250 rpm – 4,500 rpm.

The car travels from 0 to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds with either of its two available transmissions. Achieving top is restricted to just 130 mph (209 km/h).
That is the performance one needs to satisfy himself.

Prices start at just $33,445 (including $895 Destination & Handling), which is $4,300 less than the 328i.

Stay tuned to have a look at the picture gallery.
