In addition, both the 3-series saloon and Touring ranges will be bolstered by new engine options. The 3-series saloon gains a petrol EfficientDynamics model, the 320i, powered by a 168bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol unit achieving 53.3mpg and 124g/km CO2. The saloon range also has a new entry point in the shape of the 316i variant, carrying a 134bhp version of the 1.6-litre turbocharged engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox and priced from £22,850.
