BMW reveals 1 Series pricing

All systems go: The 1 Series range will kick off in Australia on October 2.

BMW 1 Series pricing starts under $42,000 - and gets lower when base model arrives

22 Sep 2004

THE ticket price for the BMW 1 Series will start below $42,000 when the turnstiles for the all-new small hatch start clicking across Australia next month – and will then fall to a new low for the brand of $37,900 when the baseline 118i model fronts up in the first quarter of 2005.

In pricing details released this week, BMW Group Australia has revealed that its all-new E87 1 Series range will kick off on October 2 with the six-speed manual 120i model retailing from $41,900.

A six-speed automatic transmission will be available for $2200 on both the 120i and the 118i, the latter being fitted standard with a five-speed manual gearbox.

A 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine powers both models, however maximum power and torque outputs differ. The 120i produces 110kW at 6200rpm and 200Nm at 3600rpm, while the detuned 118i makes do with 95kW at 5750rpm and 180Nm at 3250rpm.

In addition, the 120i gets 17-inch (rather than 16-inch) alloys, cruise control, sports seats, rain sensor and titanium-look (rather than silver) detailing.

There is still no word coming from BMW Australia on whether the 316ti will be repositioned. The spinning propeller brand’s current entry level car is priced at the moment from $41,750.
