BMW is now offering a sportier look and design to the popular EfficientDynamic models of the 3 Series. Based on the recently introduced ED Plus model, the ED Sport adds the sporting design characteristics of Sport trim, to the class-leading efficiency of the 320d ED engine. Powered by the new 2.0-litre engine and available in either a six-speed manual or the class leading eight-speed automatic, the new model teams effortless performance with better than ever emissions and fuel consumption.

 

Thanks to an extensive suite of EfficientDynamics technologies, the new BMW 320d ED Sport emits just 104g/km of CO2 (manual: 108g/km) , and has a combined fuel consumption of 70.6mpg, making it the cleanest and most fuel-efficient sports model in the 3 Series range. The improved technologies include Active Air Flaps integrated into the kidney grill and a lowered suspension set-up, both working to improve aerodynamics and overall performance and efficiency. This allows the 320d ED Sport Saloon to occupy a VED Band B and the Touring model to occupy the VED Band C with a Benefit in Kind (BIK) taxation rate of only 19 and 20 per cent respectively (Automatic: 19 and 20 per cent).  This impressive fuel economy doesn’t impact on performance with the 2.0-litre diesel engine developing 163hp and an acceleration from zero to 62mph in 7.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 143mph.

 

Owners of the 320d ED Sport can also benefit from a low cost of ownership thanks to the £350 increase in residual value of the vehicle over the ED Plus. This allows customers to have the additional sporting styling and enhanced specification of the ED Sport for just £3 more than the cost of the ED Plus model.

 

With an OTR price of £30,205, the 320 ED Sport comes with more standard equipment and an even greater scope for personalisation. With 17-inch light-alloy wheels as standard, as well as Business Navigation, a selection of Dakota leather upholsteries, Sports steering wheel, unique trim finishers and Heated Sports Front Seats - The ED Sport provides an additional £840 of standard equipment for only £500 more than the ED Plus model. There are a wide variety of options available including a range of 18-inch or 19-inch wheels as well as the extensive range of technologies available to the rest of the 3 Series range.*
