New BMW 114i and M135i as Five-Door Hatchback


Today BMW introduced two new models, the 114i and M135i. Both of these models will be available on the five-door version of the 1-Series. The 114i features a de-tuned version of the 116i’s 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with a twin scroll turbocharger rated at a low 101hp and 180Nm.

BMW quotes a 0-100km/h time of 11.2 seconds, a top speed of 195km/h and an average fuel consumption of 5.5lt/100km. All 114is come fitted with Auto Start Stop function, Shift Point Indicator in conjunction with a six-speed manual transmission and brake energy regeneration system as standard. The M135i makes use of the latest version of BMW’s 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six delivering 315hp at 5,800rpm and 450Nm.

The 6-speed manual gearbox model goes from zero to 100km/h in 5.1 seconds, with the 8-speed automatic version completing the sprint in 4.9 seconds. Both models reach a limited top speed of 250 km/h.

Select versions of the five-door 1-Series will also be available with BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system. The first models to be offered with xDrive will be the 120d and the M135i with European sales to start later in the year.
