BMW 116d Efficient Dynamics launched

The new BMW 116d Efficient Dynamics has been revealed. Its the most tax-efficient BMW 1 Series yet, with CO2 emissions of just 99g/km.

The 116d Efficient Dynamics has a 114bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine and six-speed manual gearbox, with average economy of 74.3mpg. Its average mpg and CO2 emissions are identical to those of the Audi A3 1.6 TDI start-stop 99 3dr and VW Golf Bluemotion 5dr.

Changes over the standard 116d include lowered suspension, a longer final drive ratio, reduced-rolling-resistance tyres and a gearshift indicator. These tweaks help to improve fuel economy by 11.5mpg and cut CO2 emissions by 18g/km.

The 116d Efficient Dynamics also qualifies for the lowest company car tax rating for diesels (13%) and free road tax.

Equipment is similar to the SE model, with alloys, Bluetooth, USB connection, front foglights and iDrive as standard.
