BMW 320i

The biggest changes are under the hood, where the 320i uses a de-tuned version of the same 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder found in the 328i. In the 320i, it's good for 180 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque, cutting 60 horses and 55 pound-feet from the 328i. BMW says 0-to-60 takes 7.1 seconds with either the standard six-speed manual or optional eight-speed automatic - a sharp rise from the 328i's 5.4-seconds 0-to-60 time


BMW also notoriously under-estimates their cars performance figures. For example, if they claim a 0-60 time of 6.0 seconds, its likely a time of 5.5 is doable



So when you consider BMW's history it's very likely this new 320i rated at 180hp / 200ft-lb tq. is going to be plenty sufficient. Also, engine performance isn't just about "peak horse power
