BMW makes a lot of cars, technically it can be called a hatchback. There are 3 series compact cars, but it is an old broken car. In addition, there is the M140i, but it is more like a Gran Turismo with a small interior. Therefore, in our opinion, at least in the traditional sense, 128ti is their first popular product, and possibly the last.
As a reminder, this 5-door compact car is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with an output of 261 hp (265 PS) and 295 lb-ft of torque (400 Nm). Therefore, it has a greater impact than ordinary GTI. Of course, if the powertrain is not set correctly, it will be meaningless, but this independent acceleration test proved that with the help of an eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission, a sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) It takes 6.1 seconds. This is exactly what BMW claims to do.
We have studied all possible Golf 8 GTI acceleration tests, and they increased the speed of the model from 0 mph to 62 mph to 6.2 to 6.4 seconds. So, does this mean that 128ti is worth buying? Well, of course I will be attracted, because this did not exist before. It looks no less inferior to GTI, and you can get access to almost all mainstream technologies and designs of BMW. However, it is also nearly 10% more expensive.
