BMW expands 1, 2 and 3 Series ranges with new Sport Collection variants
The new BMW Sport Collection variants will include the 118i, 218i Gran Coupé, 320i and 330e, with full availability by the end of Q1 2022.
BMW Australia is expanding the range of trim options for its 1, 2 and 3 Series models with the introduction of the new Sport Collection, which offers an optimised range of equipment to lower the base price tag for select variants.
For the 1 Series, the cost of entry falls to just $48,900 drive-away with the 118i Sport, with the model featuring 17-inch alloy wheels and black paint outside, plus the Sport Line trim as standard.
Inside, it features Sport seats, the Live Cockpit Professional digital instrument cluster, Intelligent Personal Assistant with "Hey BMW!" voice activation, Driving Assistant, Parking Assistant and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
The same list of features also comes standard on the new 218i Sport Gran Coupé, which is priced at $53,900 drive-away.
A couple of 3 Series variants will also be offered in Sport trim. The price-leading 320i Sport will be offered at $69,900 drive-away, while the 330e Sport plug-in hybrid (PHEV) sits at $77,900 drive-away – ensuring it falls under New South Wales' new stamp duty exemption for electrified vehicles priced under $78,000.
Both variants ride on 18-inch alloy wheels and also feature black paintwork as standard. Like the 118i and 218i Sport, both will feature Sport seats, Live Cockpit Professional, Intelligent Personal Assistant and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. The 330e Sport will also benefit from a standard head-up display.
All 4 of the new Sport Collection models will be available in dealers by the end of Q1 2022.
