enough to overtake normal car. Torque come in around 1200rpm.

Unless you are trying to overtake a sport cars...it is a different story.

why not. Just make sure you have an emergency kit with you.

How fast you want to go in Singapore. Even in ns highway, not many pass the 200kmh mark.

In 99% event, 10-150kmh will be your normal speed.

1% for other speed

.

If any case, if you want more power, easily could be done by chip up as it is a turbo unit.

I don't have problems overtaking cars on expressways using only Comfort mode with my 1.5L 3-cylinder 318i ... RPM doesn't even go past 3000

 

People seem to think that a 1.5L 3-cylinder engine (318i) is smaller or less powerful than a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine (the old 316i) ... strange. Same engine capacity, power and torque but they say 3-cylinder is a smaller engine?

 

The 3 cylinder might give the impression there's imbalance in the engine power output cycle vs a 4-cylinder, but compare 318i with 316i and see for yourself.

Ya agreed that for local driving conditions, the high torque esp of the diesel variant means you can overtake and change lanes confidently even against some higher cc cars so unless u talking about racing, this car is more than sufficient.

Depends on what u r comparing with isnt it? 1.5 3c turbo vs 2l turbo... Or even 2L 4c.. If u compare with Orlando then ur pathetic GT is like a rolls

i have no issues about criticism.

i'm not even 'owner'. I just lease for a few years.  [laugh] 

 

i mean its a subjective comment. I take it you've not taken it up and down nsh? because out of breath is not how i would describe its acceleration there. maybe its the diesel, maybe the turbo, but i find i could keep up with the mad right-lane-hogging hazard-light-blinking full-tint MY contis there.

collected last friday.... car has enuf torque even for highway. Just need to press accelerator. I went past 110km/hr mark a few times bec it doesnt feel like it is that fast....  [laugh]  Anyway this is an AT for my wife. It also sits like any compact SUV so that is certainly a plus factor for me.
