Chris Harris borrowed a BMW 320d to travel to the Nurburgring for a VLN race and impressed by the car, he poses the question: Do you need anything more than a BMW 320d?
The little 2.0 liter four banger produces 190 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm of torque between 1750-2500 rpm. From 0 to 100 km/h, the 320d GT needs 7.7-7.8 seconds (automatic/manual). The fuel consumption is rated at 4.3-4.6 liter per 100 km (automatic/manual).
CO2 emission is 118-125 g/km.
The BMW 320d actually delivers a perfectly acceptable amount of power and astonishingly good fuel economy, so Harris goes on about it for quite a while. He has a few nitpicky things to say about the interior, but overall, he’s pleased with the little diesel.
