BMW has confirmed the UK prices of the 1-Series Convertible and the saloon version of the M3, both of which will go on sale here next spring.
The entry-level 1-Series Convertible is called the 120i, comes in ES trim and uses BMW's Hams Hall-built 170bhp two-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. It will cost £24,055, while the higher-spec SE will come in at £25,205.
The 125i has a 218bhp three-litre six-cylinder petrol engine which gives a 0-62mph time of 6.8 seconds and combined fuel consumption of 42.8mpg (equating to 195g/km of CO2). This model is available in SE trim only and costs £26,195.
That's it to begin with, though - as explained in our previous news item - other variants will follow in due course.
The first Convertibles will appear in UK dealerships in April. A month earlier, the M3 saloon will make its appearance; mechanically identical to the M3 coupé - the saloon is fractionally slower (0-62mph in 4.9 seconds), equally economical (22.8mpg combined) and over £1000 cheaper at £49,210.
