the car looks ugly one the outside.
Rather get 1 series.
Though both are different set of car.
Surprisingly, the 216d has a 6-speed transmission with front-wheel drive while the 116d has an 8-speed transmission with rear-wheel drive.

Though its 0-100km/h is 10.3s, the 116d feels much faster than this, probably because its 0-60 km/h, crucial in urban driving, is only a few seconds.

Overtake with confidence with the nimble 116d.

To me 1 series also ugly.
Its like a 3 series hatch.
Proportions wrong, long over hanging nose with flat backside.

The 216d is using the same chassis as the Mini, which is FWD.

Lol you still can have fun with a 2-series. This is the 7-seater Gran Tourer version:

They have to keep the weight distribution 50 50

The 2 series is not 50 50
