BMW 116i SPORT 2.0 STEPTRONIC AUTOMATIC 5 DOOR Vehicle Specification

BMW 116i SPORT 2.0 STEPTRONIC AUTOMATIC 5 DOOR finished in Crimson Red with Cranberry Red “Network” cloth upholstery. This is a lovely example of the brilliant to drive, practical and sought after 1 Series range. This car has the 2.0 16 valve petrol “Efficient Dynamics” engine with 122 bhp, coupled to a six speed Steptronic automatic gearbox. It can return an impressive 42.8 mpg on the combined cycle, is a group 11 insurance and costs £190 per year to tax. Performance is lively too, with a top speed of 126 mph and a 0-60 time of 10.5 seconds. The 1 Series has a traditional front engine, rear wheel drive chassis that provides the superb handling balance that BMW’s are renowned for with accurate, well weighted steering and a firmer but never uncomfortable ride quality. With its refined engine and smooth shifting automatic gearbox – this is a fantastic vehicle to drive that the enthusiastic driver will really appreciate. The Steptronic automatic gearbox features a Sport mode for a more responsive drive, or for total control you can shift gears manually by nudging the gear lever fore and aft. There is enough room in the cabin to seat four adults in reasonable comfort (five would be a squeeze in the back though!) and a spacious boot with split/folding rear seats to extend it further when required. There are plenty of handy, family friendly features fitted too, such as – a front centre armrest with integral storage tray, map nets on the back of the front seats, two front cupholders, roomy glovebox, front and rear door bins, dash-top storage box, drivers lower storage tray, storage net, load securing straps, 12V power socket and underfloor storage in the boot, 12V power socket, front map reading lamps, front LED ambient lighting, plus height and tilt adjustable front seats with extendable thigh supports. This should be a very safe vehicle as it scored a five star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests and comes with a raft of safety gear, including – driver and passenger airbags (with passengers de-activation switch), side airbags, curtain airbags, ISOFIX child seat mountings on the outer rear seats and front passenger seat, run-flat tyres with tyre pressure monitoring system, plus ABS brakes and DSC stability and traction control. This Sport model has a generous goodie count with some desirable extras, spec includes – air conditioning, electric windows all round, electric/heated mirrors, trip computer, electrically adjustable front seat side bolsters, privacy glass (optional accessory), 17 inch “Star Spoke” alloy wheels, cruise control (£215 optional extra), remote central locking, Bluetooth hands free phone integration with voice control (£525 optional extra) and its original remote control BMW Professional RDS stereo/CD player with auxiliary MP3 connector socket (£145 optional extra). This vehicle was also specified new with the “Comfort Pack” which includes automatic headlights and wipers, auto dimming rear view mirror, plus front and rear parking sensors (£820 optional extra).

This 1 Series has a great pedigree. It was originally supplied by Listers BMW of Boston to its first owner who had it for three years, the second owner had it for around a year before it was acquired by a lady from Bromyard in June 2015. The last owner was a lady from Hereford who purchased it in July last year and part exchanged it with us for a manual 3 Series recently, as she couldn’t get used to an automatic. It has a full service history with seven stamps in the book, the first six from main BMW dealers and the last one from an independent garage. Together with the MOT records this fantastic history confirms the sensible mileage of just under 55,000 beyond doubt and also proves that the car has received the best possible maintenance throughout its life. It is presented in excellent condition throughout, drives exactly as it should and looks very smart in its gleaming bright red paintwork with complementing red and dark grey interior. It is set off in particular by the sporty alloys, front fog lamps and darkened rear windows whilst the interior is enhanced by the nice to hold leather rimmed sports steering wheel, supportive sports front seats, classy silver metallic effect inlays on the dashboard, centre console and door pulls, plus the matt chrome touches on the steering wheel, gearknob, door handles and instrument dial surrounds. This vehicle also comes with its original set of tailored to fit velour overmats. If you are looking for a compact five door hatchback with automatic transmission and appreciate premium quality and a sporty drive – the 1 Series Steptronic will be a perfect choice. With this cars generous Sport spec, comprehensive history and low running costs I don’t think you will find anything to better it in this price bracket. Very affordable to purchase and excellent value for money at only £6,995!
