BMW 120d Manual Here in May
The 2009 BMW 120d manual
arrives, locally, in May 2009.
4th March, 2009
BMW will target sporting drivers with a eco-friendly
mind when the new manual transmission equipped BMW 120d hatch arrives mid-year.
The new environmentally friendly model consumes 4.8-litres of diesel per 100 km/h on the
combined cycle, and emits 128 g/km of CO2.
It will be the first BMW offered in Australia to match a six speed manual transmission with the
four cylinder diesel engine.
The 2 litre common rail injection turbo-diesel engine is renowned for its smooth and seamless
acceleration when teamed with the six speed automatic transmission, but the new six speed manual
version takes the compact BMW 120d hatch into a new dimension.
Armed with 130 kW of power and 350 Nm of torque, the new BMW 120d manual will get to 100 km/h in
some 7.6 seconds.
The new BMW 120d manual will be specified in line with the BMW 120d automatic, which means it
comes standard with Dynamic Stability Control, rear Park Distance Control, 17-inch light alloy
wheels shod with run flat tyres, sport leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, cruise
control, automatic climate control and Sport seats.
Like all BMW 1 Series models, a full range of optional equipment is available to the BMW 120d
manual customer, including the M Sport Package, Professional Navigation, Comfort Access and
Adaptive Bi-Xenon headlights.
The new BMW 120d manual will be priced from $46,790 plus dealer delivery and statutory charges.
Deliveries commence in May 2009.
