Hi,

I am considering getting a brand new BMW 116i. Few things to consider before confirming the order:

Fuel Consumption - what's the advice on a realistic mileage on a full tank?

 

Any other comments (pro and con) for this car?

Its a diesel so its as economical as it can get

and the most important thing is people will

see the BMW badge and see you very up

so paying a bit more for fuel is very worth it.

It was selling at $120k at barebones in may. Not worth to get it at 155k without promo.

Btw, audi a3 just launched is mild hybrid and its cat B. Comparable to 1 series.

F.C. depends alot on the Traffic Conditions,Type of Roads[Highway or Town Driving] & most important,your Right Foot,i could get 11km/L easily on my M240i[In line 6 Engine],while some of my Friends get only 7Km/L.

Agree, a3 is going for 135k right now. At 155k, i would take a3 over the 116i any day since its still BBA but thats me 🙂 the mild hybrid really give the pick-up a good boost

imho, 116I is a good option only if the price is lower. But from SGcarmart, the OMV already 30kish leow. So I tink its not going be cheaper anytime.

At this price point, the Passats, the Camries, the Mazda 6 would be more value buy. Size different too. Lol.

Some buy becoz they also like that size. Not too big. Lifestyle car for them in a way too.

Badge a bonus though for many.

If molah not a issuse, I would seriously consider these hot-hatches for my wife. Lol.
