The Germans at BMW decided to bring the 320i model at this year’s edition of the Detroit Motor Show. Therefore, U.S. buyers who were looking to a more affordable version of the current F30 3 Series will be able to get their hands on the new entry-level model.
Under the hood sits a 2.0-liter TwinPower four-cylinder unit producing 180 horses and 200 lb-ft of torque.
With these resources, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is possible in 7,1 seconds with a top speed limited at 209 km/h. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission and fuel consumption figures of 22mpg (city) and 34mpg (highway).
On the options list we find an eight-speed automatic transmission as well, a gearbox which provides almost similar fuel economy numbers of 22mpg (city) and 33mpg (highway).
The entry-level BMW 320i with rear-wheel drive starts at $33,445 in the United States. If you want to benefit from the four-wheel drive system, known as xDrive, it will cost you an additional $2,000.
