Test drive – 2010 BMW 116d | Rpmgo.com

The BMW 1 Series isn’t really the most popular model for the Bavarian manufacturer, as most people tend to go that extra mile and just buy a 3 Series to get a bigger boot, more space, and bigger engines range. Before I drove the 116d, I used to agree with them, but for someone who doesn’t need a sedan, the 1 Series is perfect and can more than make up with its lighter weight the relatively small engine.

The new 116d offers the smallest amount of power, taken from the very popular 2.0-liter diesel, but is also the most economical and efficient version available, when coupled with the Auto StartStop function. Even though it isn’t the most powerful, as I have learned, it is more than capable of wearing the BMW badge with honor.
