BMW's new front-wheel drive hothatch model, the BMW 128ti, is introduced. The model with its own details is seen as the lower version of the M135i xDrive.

The new BMW 128ti is a hothatch, and in this war Volkswagen Golf GTI, Honda Civic Type R, Ford Focus ST, Renault Mégane R.S. and rivals like the Hyundai i30 N. But in the Premium class, there are also more tough rivals such as Audi S3, BMW M135i, Mercedes-AMG A35.

Under the hood of the new BMW 128ti we are greeted by a 2.0-liter turbo petrol engine. This engine produces 265 hp between 4,750-6,500 rpm and 400 Nm of torque between 1,750-4,500 rpm. Combined with an 8-speed Steptronic transmission, the BMW 128 ti can reach 0-100 km/h in just 6.1 seconds. The model, whose top speed is announced as 250 km/h, also has a manual transmission option. We should also point out that the 28ti is 36.2 kg lighter than the M135i.

The 128ti, which acts as a bridge between the standard 1 Series and the M135i xDrive, has also been adjusted accordingly. Thanks to the M Sport suspension, the shock absorber stiffness of the 128ti, which is 10 mm closer to the ground than the F40 1 Series sold in our country with 118i and 116d packages, has been increased up to 10%. Stiffening the rear axle and Torsen limited slip differential aim to improve the vehicle's handling. The calipers in the brake system, which has discs with 360 mm in the front and 300 mm in the rear, are four-piston, just like the M134i.


The new BMW 128ti, which reveals its identity with red details, has a dual exhaust system, both of which are 90 mm in diameter. The car, which comes with 18 diameter alloy wheels as standard, can be purchased with 19 ″ wheels as an option. BMW preferred the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 for the BMW 128 ti's tires.

In the cabin, red stitches, the "ti" logo embroidered on the front armrest, sports seats signed by M Sport and the M steering wheel draw attention.
