The Bavarian company has published official trim levels and prices for the 128ti in Australia ahead of official sales in the first quarter of 2021.

The front-wheel-drive “charged” hatchback is powered by a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine that develops 245 hp. and 380 Nm of torque. This is 20 hp. and 20 Nm less than the European model. Thus, the new BMW 128ti accelerates 1.2 seconds slower to 100 km / h (6.3 versus 5.1 seconds), and the top speed has dropped from 250 to 243 km / h.

The engine still powers the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, and a limited slip differential from the M135i xDrive comes standard.

Available in six body colors, the 128ti features 18-inch M alloy wheels, M Sport suspension and brakes, adaptive LED headlights, and an M rear spoiler.

Inside, the basic version of the novelty has fabric upholstery with red stitching, sports seat belts, velor floor mats with red inserts, dual-zone climate control, a 9.2-inch head-up display and an infotainment system.

Customers can optionally equip the 128ti with two large displays up to 10.25 ” with gesture control and an electric tailgate. Option packages are also available to enhance convenience and comfort. The latter add features such as a panoramic glass roof, heated front seats with lumbar support and a heated steering wheel.
