BMW 118i rejoins facelifted F20 1 Series range

by -

BMW Group Malaysia has reintroduced the 118i to its F20 1 Series line-up, which was trimmed from three to just one variant when the facelifted model was introduced here this June. Next to the RM219,800 120i M Sport, the new 118i Sport is priced far more affordably at RM188,800 on-the-road excluding insurance.

Shorn of the 120i’s M Sport package, the Sport Line-trimmed 118i wears a more toned down appearance, but can still boast of full LED illumination front and rear, chrome matt finished tail pipe, high-black rear bumper finish, and 17-inch alloy wheels on the outside.

Inside, a free-standing 6.5-inch colour screen and rotary control knob gives the driver and front passenger access and control of the 118i’s BMW Radio Professional and iDrive in-car infotainment system. Auto climate control is also standard. Highlighting its Sport Line trim configuration, the dashboard features the distinctive Coral Red Matt inserts.

Following its recent introduction in the F30 318i, BMW’s 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo makes a rapid journey down the food chain to power the new 118i, endowing it with 136hp and 220Nm. Paired with ZF’s 8HP 8-speed automatic transmission, the 118i is able to hit 100kph from standstill in 8.7 seconds with fuel consumption rated at 5.1 l/100km in the combined cycle.

Available at all BMW dealerships across the country from 25 Nov onwards, the 118i, like all BMW models currently on sale, is covered by a five-year unlimited mileage warranty and free service programme.
