Prices start at £19,530 for the BMW 116i Performance Edition three-door but it's also available on the 116i, 116d and 118d three and five-door models

The new model comes with M aerodynamic bodystyling, dark chrome 18-inch M light alloy wheels, high-gloss Shadowline exterior trim, dark chrome exhaust tailpipe and dark line rear lights. It also adds M Sport Suspension plus sport seats with Royal Blue stitching, an M Sport multi-function leather steering wheel and gearshift leaver, floor mats with Royal Blue piping and London 2012 exterior badges.
