Looking for a car that delivers big on style but is still friendly on the wallet? You'll be pleased to note that BMW Asia and Performance Motors Limited have now launched the Cat A COE-friendly BMW 216i Gran Coupe here in Singapore.

The new model variant joins the 218i and the M235i in the 2 Series Gran Coupe lineup here in Singapore, and also joins the BMW 116i as one of the only two BMW models to duck under the 130bhp limit for eligibility for registration under the Cat A COE.

The BMW 216i Gran Coupe comes with 17-inch light alloy wheels
Powering this BMW 216i Gran Coupe is a 1.5-litre engine, coupled to a seven-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission. Delivering a total of 108bhp, the 216i Gran Coupe will complete the zero to 100km/h sprint in 10.8 seconds.

A peak torque of 190Nm meanwhile, is offered by this engine from 1,380rpm to 3,800rpm, which should ensure easy driving even on our island's busy roads.

And speaking of driving on our busy roads, BMW states that this 216i Gran Coupe will also deliver a fuel economy of 18.2km/L, so you can look forward to less frequent visits to the pumps. A low CO2 emissions figure of only 125g/km also contributes to the car qualifying for a $15,000 rebate under the VES scheme, so there's plenty of savings all round from this premium car.
