Quick Look

The 2016 BMW i3 is a completely different style for BMW as it doesn’t look like its usual designs. This is because the i3 is an electric car and needs to have a more futuristic and bright look to it so it can fit the typical electric car look.

Full Review

The 2016 BMW i3 is a vehicle to compete among the newest segment to the automotive industry, the electric cars. BMW has done a great job of designing this vehicle as it resembles exactly what drivers would imagine a futuristic, electric car looks like. With bright colours and a unique shape, the i3 definitely stands out in traffic. In addition to the unique looks, the power the i3 offers is surprisingly pretty powerful for its size and kind.

The exterior has a very unique design as it has a build that doesn’t look like BMW’s usual models. Some features on it do resemble the typical BMW design like the kidney-shaped grille. Even though it is a lot smaller and looks a lot friendlier with a bright colour, the grille has the same shape as other BMW models. Accompanying the grille is the logo placed right above it, with no space between the two. Also, the headlights seems pretty small and near the middle area where the grille and logo are located. Even though the headlights are small, they are really bright as they are powered by LED lighting. With the headlights, grille, and logo all squished together near the front, the view looks very compact and it may be to symbolize BMW trying to preserve space in the front just as well as they preserve fuel consumption. The rear view of the car looks very different as it has the completely opposite colour filling it, black. The taillights are within the car, and look like digital lighting.

The interior has got to be one of the best looking interiors made for any car, as it has been nominated in the past for awards based on the looks alone. Everything inside of the car is so well put together and neat. The centre console is part of the top dash, which is almost hanging off as it stands alone instead of being connected to the armrest section. This separation allows for more space for the front passenger and driver’s legs. The infotainment system is accompanied by a display screen which is the perfect size and angled at the perfect degree for drivers to look at while driving. The material used for the dashboard and seats are top notch as it looks and feels very rich. The steering wheel is designed in a very clear-cut way, meaning it doesn’t have any unnecessary buttons on it. Also, with bright colours used for the seats, dashboard, and steering wheel, the interior stands out a lot.

Under the hood, BMW offers an electric motor that is able to produce 170 horsepower and battery pack lithium-ion of 18.8 kilowatt-hour. Also a two-cylinder 647 cc engine which can produce 34 horsepower to recharge the electric battery. With one charge, the i3 is able to drive about 130 kilometres. In terms of fuel economy, the i3 only requires about 2 litres to drive about 100 kilometres. This allows its drivers to save a whole lot of money on fuel consumption.

The 2016 BMW i3 is a great car, however because of some aspects of it, it isn’t able to cater to all drivers. Even though the power its engine offers is great for its segment, it still isn’t powerful enough to satisfy a lot of drivers out there. For those who are interested in saving money on fuel consumption and want strong power, comparatively, the 2016 BMW i3 is a great model to go with.

Power and Performance:

2016 BMW i3 has electric motor to generate 170 hp and battery pack lithium-ion of 18.8 kWh. Two-cylinder 647 cc engine to produce 34 hp to recharge the electric battery. Two-cylinder petrol is not meant to drive in particular mode. Drawback of this system is small sized gas tank of 1.9 gallon which is unable to extend range of i3. There are two trim levels, known as Range Extender and Base. On the basis of drivetrain, one of these two trim levels is used. These two trim levels have standard connectivity features; however variation depends on extended range. 2016 i3 can cover 81 miles distance through one charge. On the other hand, range extender trim level offers 150 miles range.  BMW i3 gives 117 mile per gallon rate; however the ratio drops down to just 39 mpg if range extender is triggered.
