sgCarMart – At $138,800 (as of 21st August 2015), the car you see here is about the cheapest brand new BMW you can get now. But being cheap doesn't mean it's shabby in any way, especially since it's now equipped with just a 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel powerplant - the same engine that can be found residing under the MINI Cooper D's bonnet.
Before the tweak to the COE system - which took effect from February 2014 - where cars with engine capacity up to 1,600cc are required to have an engine output lesser than 130bhp to qualify as a Category A car, the Bavarian marque was enjoying the sales of the BMW 316i - a highly desirable 1.6-litre Category A compact sedan that attracted many buyers.
Since the new regulation was imposed, BMW remained as a heavyweight Category B champion… until now.
