BMW enters unexplored waters with the new 128

After the first trailer, BMW presents its novelty among sharp hatchbacks in full parade. You can recognize the BMW 128 by its sports bumpers, special 18-inch wheels and red elements on the outside and inside.

Under the hood, a two-liter tuned to 195 kW (265 hp) and 400 Nm of maximum torque. It accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds, with a top speed of 250 km / h. The front wheels are driven, but through an eight-speed automatic transmission and a Torsen mechanical self-locking differential.

But it doesn’t just stay with the power, the 128 has a 10mm reduced sports chassis with a reinforced brake system. Stiffer bearings and stabilizers inherit from a more powerful variant with all-wheel drive. However, he does not have it, so he saves 80 kilograms.

BMW has already taken a position in “super hatchbacks” with the first “number one” series with a cross-engine drive concept. The M135i, with all-wheel drive and 225 kilowatt, 306 horsepower, competes with other hatchbacks, which push the performance of compacts to previously unheard of heights. However, with the 128 version, the Bavarians also fall a step lower.
