The world’s first front-wheel drive hot hatch, the BMW 128ti, is now available in the UK.

The “charged” BMW 128ti is considered a more luxurious alternative to the Volkswagen Golf GTI. The hatchback is powered by the BMW Group’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. In Europe it produces 261 hp, and in the Australian market it ranges from 241 to 280 hp.

The motor works in conjunction with front-wheel drive and an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission. Up to a hundred “European” hatchback will accelerate in 5.1 seconds, and its maximum speed is 250 km / h. The Australian version is 1.2 seconds slower.

The hot hatch gets a signature ‘ti’ badge at the rear, a distinctive black grille and side mirror housings, unique side skirt trims and custom 18-inch Y-spoke wheels wrapped in sports tires.

When finishing the car, a combined upholstery and contrasting stitching was used.

The BMW 128ti gets a head-up display, dual-zone climate control, advanced multimedia, and more. In the British car market, a hatchback costs about 33,320 pounds sterling. The novelty is £ 190 more affordable than the 242-horsepower Volkswagen Golf GTI.

In the meantime, Skoda has shown a render of a modern version of a small utility minivan 1203. A futuristic minivan that has retained its family features appears before us.
