BMW F20 1 Series to Be Launched in India on September 3rd
The same source claims that the car will be offered in both petrol and diesel variants in the Asian country. Out of the petrol line-up you'll be seeing the 116i whilst the diesel counterpart will be represented by the 118d.
Therefore you'll be able to choose between a car with a 1.6-liter engine and 136 HP that delivers an average fuel consumption of 5.5 l/100 km (43 mpg) or one fitted with a diesel 2-liter engine that develops 143 HP and returns an average consumption of 4.4 l/100 km (53 mpg).
As for the prices, it is expected that these new cars will be the cheapest of the BMW line-up, since they will be assembled at the Chennai plant, in India, via Completely Knocked Down kits.
