BMW will take to the stage at the Geneva International Motor Show from March 5-15 with two world premieres: the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer, which offers seating for up to seven people, and the new compact BMW 1 Series.
The BMW 1 Series – almost two million units of which have been sold worldwide to date – cuts an even more striking, sporty and efficient figure in its latest incarnation, complete with its extensively modified front- and rearend design in both three- and five-door guise.
The new line-up of latest-generation petrol and diesel engines, boasting additional measures designed to reduce fuel consumption and emissions (fuel consumption combined: 8.0 – 3.4 litres per 100 kilometres [35.3 – 83.1 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 188 -89 g/km), ensure the new BMW 1 Series can offer customers a fresh, efficient source of power. The BMW 116d EfficientDynamics Edition, powered by an 85 kW/116 hp three-cylinder engine, posts average fuel consumption of 3.4 litres/ 100 kilometres (83.1 mpg imp) and CO2 emissions of 89 g/km in the EU test cycle, making it the efficiency king of the BMW model range.
The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer sees BMW creating a new vehicle segment. Its signature feature is the impressive amount of space within its compact dimensions. This is the first model in the premium compact class that can accommodate up to seven people across three rows of seats and a generously sized luggage compart-ment. All of which allows the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer to meet the mobility requirements of young families and offers – thanks to the five newly developed turbocharged engines producing from 85 kW/116 hp to 141 kW/192 hp (fuel consumption combined: 6.4 – 3.9 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 149 -104 g/km) and the BMW EfficientDynamics package – sporting dynamics.
