We had a short stint in one when we did our 'Fighters of the Street' feature. I must say the car's standout feature is its diesel engine. Like all diesel engines, they pull really strong when needed while it not using much fuel at all. This one even manages to feel as smooth if not smoother than its petrol sibling, the 320i. FYI, it outputs 181bhp and 380Nm of torque and will hit 100km/h from standstill in 7.5 seconds. Top speed is a decent 235km/h. The 320i does the similar sprint faster by 0.2 seconds but is no faster flat out.
Of course, its handling is right up there like most BMW products would be too. Not convinced? Let Chris Harris explain that to you in the video below then!
