BMW has recently announced its plans to introduce a new entry-level diesel version of the 1-Series, the 114d, in the United Kingdom.
According to the German based automaker, the BMW 114d will be a “mild” version of the current 1.6 liter four-cylinder diesel engine, which is developing a total output of 95 horsepower, with a peak torque of 235 Nm. BMW says that the 114d will be offered as an entry-level version, with a choice of two body styles, three- and five-door.
The BMW 114d is returning an average fuel consumption of 65.7 mpg UK (54.7 mpg US / 4.2L/100km) in a combined cycle while emitting 112 grams of CO2 every km. The small engine fitted onto the BMW 1-Series is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 12.2 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 115 mph (185 km/h).
Even if the German based automaker has announced a new entry-level version of the BMW 1-Series in the United Kingdom, in the shape of the 114d, we have no idea how much this model will cost and more details about it are expected to be released later on this year.
