Naperville, IL (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
The all-new 2013 BMW 320i is now joining the three-series lineup at Bill Jacobs BMW. This entry-level premium compact vehicle exceeds expectations by offering practically the same features, but at a starting cost of $3,400 less (at $32,550), as the 328i model.
Raising the benchmark for all sport sedans and luxury compacts, the new 320i offers a 2.0 Liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine with 180 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to accomplish 60 miles-per-hour in 7.1 seconds. The eight-speed automatic transmission comes standard, which both ensures efficient fuel consumption and delivers an incredibly smooth ride. The traditional six-speed manual is also still an available option.
"Bill Jacobs BMW is excited the all-new 320i has finally arrived - it's like our new 'baby,'" said Greg Joutras, General Manager at Bill Jacobs in Naperville. "Continuing BMW's worthy reputation at a lower cost, without sacrificing anything, is a big deal."
The BMW xDrive, featuring the brand's intelligent all-wheel drive system, is also available when paired with automatic transmission. Fuel efficiency is estimated to be 36 highway miles-per-gallon for the 320i sedan, and 35 highway miles-per-gallon for the 320i with xDrive. To give drivers a driving experience free from distractions, the Driving Dynamics Control offers a selection of three driving modes - Comfort, Sport, and Eco Pro. The Eco Pro mode allows the vehicle to be calibrated for optimum fuel efficiency. Another added element is the variable sport steering, which continuously adjusts the vehicle's steering ratio to meet changing situations in curvy roads, higher speeds, and parking.
The Comfort access system allows keyless entry and a convenient motion-activated trunk release. An optional Onboard Navigation System with traffic alerts helps drivers easily get to their destination. BMW apps and entertainment systems can connect to social networks, internet radio stations, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, or HD Radio.
Safety and security technologies in the 320i defy expectations. Run-Flat tires allow for continued driving when a tire is punctured, up to 150 miles at reduced speed, to reach a safe area or receive roadside assistance. The Dynamic Stability Control detects loss of wheel traction and immediately makes corrections. And BMW Assist with Bluetooth Wireless Technology lets drivers speak with a response specialist with a touch of a button. BMW Ultimate Service is included for the first four years or 50,000 miles.
"This new model proves that consumers do not have to give up luxury to get a entry-level BMW," continued Joutras. "Come test drive the new 320i, and you will see why we are so excited about this car."
