BMW 316i - giving frugal diesels a run for the money in Austria

BMW is going to start selling the 316i in Austria this month. The vehicle's small engine, mated to the Bavarian marque's "Efficient Dynamics" package, makes the 3-series' entry car a competent performer. The 1.6 liter engine puts out 122 HP while using 5.9 liters of gas per 100 km (that's about 40 mpg U.S.). Regarding CO 2 emissions, the car produces 142 g/km. According to the press release, "the BMW 316i scores not only by its low entry price, but above all by moderate maintenance costs." How much? From 26,950 EUR in Austria.
