According to a statement by the BMW automaker, the market launch of the new BMW 128ti will take place on November 2020, and can be bought from their representative ‘Coscharis Motors’ in Nigeria.
The new automobile is created to give users a very unique driving experience. The whole front-wheel-drive compact sport model has a relentless emphasis on providing driving pleasure with its outstandingly adapted M Sport suspension and Torsen limited-slip differential.
The BMW 128ti operates on a 2.0-litre engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and 195 kW (265 hp).
The car has a deluxe interior and exterior design. Sport tyres are accessible for the 18-inch Y-spoke 553 M bi-colour light-alloy wheels (reserved exclusively for the BMW 128ti) and enhance the vigor of the car’s sporty driving qualities.
A true “Turismo Internazionale”. The quality profile of the BMW 128ti makes it the specific car to bring uniqueness into tradition at BMW. Ever since the 1960s the “TI” (later “ti”) badge signified “Turismo Internazionale”, measuring incredibly sporty members of a model range.
The new BMW 128ti is founded on the M Sport model specification attainable for the BMW 1 Series. This implies that it has a unique front apron with solely carved air intakes and the back apron from the M Sport in High-gloss Black.
The BMW 128ti emphasizes its standalone identity with stunning coloured tones.
The side skirt trim and “ti” badge fixed above it ahead of the rear wheels are also red on examples of the BMW 128ti with Storm Bay metallic, Mineral Grey metallic, Sapphire Black metallic or Alpine White paintwork.
The BMW 128ti has broadened Shadowline trim with black BMW kidney grille and black mirror caps as typical in Germany. The elective BMW Individual lights Shadowline for the headlights generates a darker appearance, enabled by the absence of several chrome trim elements.
The interior of the BMW 128ti accentuates high-class materials and lengthens the use of red accents from the exterior into the compartment. These accents generate a bold disparity against the sporty black headliner, for example. A large Race Red surface illuminates the backrests of the standard Sensatec/cloth sport seats. A red “ti” is fastened into the centre armrest which – like the other armrests, the door panels, the instrument panel and floor mat edging – also has red contrast stitching. The steering wheel rim and airbag cover of the standard M Sport steering wheel also maintain the red stitching. Buyers who think the red disparities are too apparent can have them deleted.
Dakota leather and M sport seats accessible as alternatives. The sport seats comes as a choice in perforated Dakota leather – in Black, in Black with blue accents or in Magma Red with grey accents.
The new BMW 128ti struts a wealth of feature modifications and is accessible wholly with M Sport suspension specially adapted to its unique character.
The front axle of the BMW 128ti is furnished as standard with the same Torsen limited-slip differential utilized on the BMW M135i xDrive. With locking components of 31 per cent when speeding (BMW M135i xDrive: 36 per cent) and 26 per cent when decelerating, it is an excellent solution for the engine output and front-wheel-drive concept of the BMW 128ti.
