BMW's most affordable coup is set to appeal to an even broader set of European customers with the introduction of two new engines. The new 118d and 120i Coup are being introduced to offer the stylish lines of the coup in a package that blends performance with economy.

The BMW 118d Coup uses the same engine that won the coveted 2008 World Green Car of the Year award. This four-cylinder diesel with third-generation common-rail diesel technology achieves an impressive 119g/km CO2 emissions and a combined consumption of 62.8mpg (Imperial), making it the cleanest and greenest diesel-powered sports coup available.

Performance is surprisingly impressive, with the 118d recording 0-62mph in 9.0 seconds, before going on to a top speed of 130mph.

A 1995cc engine powers the 120i Coup, producing 170hp to hustle from 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds, and on to 139mph. When US fuel prices were high, BMW was looking at introducing some of its more frugal models to the US market. For the moment at least, it looks as if it's only the enlightened European drivers, saddled with higher driving taxes, who will be enjoying this level of economy, performance and style.
